If you know a cancer patient who’s looking for alternatives, this could be the best gift they ever receive.

Blue Pure 411 Air Purifier - If you don’t know already, one of the most important tasks for the cancer patient as well as the family and caregivers is to make sure the cancer patient doesn’t become sick.

This is an extremely thoughtful and beneficial gift for any cancer patient.

Natural Boar Bristle Dry Body Brush Set -  Besides revealing glowing skin and getting rid of dry skin, a very important attribute to these brushes for the cancer patient is the lymphatic flow activation properties. When the lymphatic flow is improved, so is the immune system, and with how delicate the immune system can become in a person who has cancer, this is another completely beneficial gift for your friend or loved one. ​​​​

Don’t be the person who gives your friend or loved one who has cancer a simple card or balloon. Give them one of these truly beneficial gifts, and they will always remember how much you thought and cared about them.

What to send someone with cancer

What to Send Someone with Cancer

 You just found out that a close friend or loved one has been diagnosed with Cancer

You are stunned by the news and want to send a gift to show your support. Unless you have had a close experience with the disease, it can be difficult to pick the right gift to send.  Surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation have a lot of side-effects and physical reactions that make it extra difficult to pick the right gift.  


Did you know that cancer patients often suffer nausea, or that sending flowers is a big no-no?  Also, no candies or sweets and no products with strong scents.  


Wondering what to send someeone with cancer?  Here are some ideas on what to add to your cart and send as a care package.  Don't forget to write a letter to go along with your package.


Amazon makes it easy to purchase an item or items, and have them shipped to a friend or loved one as a gift.  Click HERE for more instructions on how this works

Frankincense is an amazing oil that has anti-inflammatory properties and based on laboratory research may possess immune-stimulating and cancer-fighting properties.  Be sure to choose a therapeutic grade oil such as DoTerra. The DoTerra roll on is perfect as it comes ready to roll on and doesn’t require dilution.

Cancer prefers an acidic environment to grow in.  The more alkaline your body is the better! A great gift option for your loved one is an alkaline water pitcher.  I recently bought my family one and we find it is easy to use. Just fill the pitcher with tap water and store it in the refrigerator.  Not only will it encourage them to drink more water, but it will improve their body’s PH levels so that cancer struggles to thrive.

One of the most common side effects of chemotherapy is nausea.  While there is plenty of nausea medicine on the market to help relieve this symptom, there are also holistic, drug-free, methods for reducing nausea.  The relief band works fast by creating pulses that signal the median nerve to rebalance and reduces feelings of nausea.

After a diagnosis of cancer, your loved one will be looking to improve their diet, but may still have the duty of feeding their family.  Here you will find recipes for the whole family. You can give them peace of mind knowing they and their family are eating well while only preparing one meal for the whole family. 

Give the gift of entertainment.  Your loved one can read, watch movies, or research from their most comfortable spot.  This idea cares for keeping their minds busy while they get the rest needed to heal.

Music is therapeutic!  If your loved one doesn’t already have an Echo Dot this would be a gift for them.  With an Amazon music subscription, they can play any song they want to hear just by asking Alexa to play it.  "Alexa, play some smooth jazz”.

Hydration is so important during chemotherapy.  Gift your loved one this reminder to stay hydrated during this process.  There are so many different designs and inspirational sayings to choose from. Snag one that speaks to your fighter.

Surround them with comfort in a time of cold clinics, long treatments, and uncomfortable car rides with a very soft throw.  The softer the better! The UGG bliss sherpa throw is amazingly soft, warm, and is produced by the same makers of the high-quality UGG boots.

Cozy feet are a must have when battling any illness. Microfiber, fleece, aloe-infused, and sherpa are just a few of the wonderful types of cozy socks you will find.  For more support check out these Ugg slippers for everyday use.

Inspirational gifts for cancer patients can provide much-needed hope and determination during treatment.


For cancer patients and survivors, days can be tough, full of hard choices, pain, and fear.  We want to ease that hardship and make them feel better.

Coffee in a cherished mug may remind a friend in treatment that small victories matter. For a loved one, wearing a special t-shirt may be a way to embrace each day with hope. The best gift, though, is that these items remind them of you.


In the fight against cancer, love and community are vital to making treatment more tolerable and finding motivation in each day.

Here is a compilation of products that will comfort your loved one, that celebrates victories large and small and that will remind them that you care and they are loved.

What I love about this necklace is that it celebrates the victory over cancer, by the color of the ribbon wrapped around the engraved message. The pendant is sturdy and heavy, just like the battle over the disease, and it recognizes that no war is won alone and without struggle. Give this to your proud survivor and you’ll see in their smile how they relate to this message.

What could be better than this motivational and attractive bottle to motivate healthy hydration?  This stainless steel bottle is safe to use with hot and cold drinks, and the Believe motif is a graphic reminder of hope.  Drinking fluids is challenging during treatment, and every little bit of motivation to keep well-hydrated helps.

  • Sometimes what you need is a literal embrace of hope. This super soft throw has a Scripture inscription of Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future.” In those moments when your loved one feels cold, the warmth of this blanket and its words will make things better. Faith is a powerful healer and the comfort of Scripture on the plush fleece may strengthen their faith and give them peace.

    WillowTree sculptures are crafted with deep love and an intention behind them. This one, written on a card enclosed with the beautiful figure, states ”May you find strength, beauty, and peace each day.”  Looking at this serene praying angel, cloaked in the Tree of Life, helps us find in each breath a moment of solace. Sometimes, that’s what we need to find the positive in our day.

    “Life is tough but I am tougher” is the mantra of the fighter in you. This cancer survivor bracelet also has a bangle of a ribbon and another of the word Hope.  The stainless steel it is constructed with is you, the tough warrior that endured and came on top. With this bracelet you are saying that you remember, you endured and won, and you are looking into the future. All in style!

    50 Days of hope inspirational journal was written by a person who understands what it is like to get a cancer diagnosis. She needed hope, and so do we. This journal offers true stories and inspiration for 50 days and allows us to document our hopes and fears, our questions, and our experience. Finding out you or a loved one has cancer is confusing, scary and debilitating. Detangling these emotions by writing them down, along with the faith expressed in this journal’s pages, aides us in making decisions and caring better for ourselves.

    This book is full of true stories, quotes, and scripture from the NIV that aim to break the stereotype of cancer as a do-it-all. Cancer cannot break the love you feel for each other. Cancer cannot destroy hope or faith. The book is uplifting, inspiring and a for a person struggling, it brings comfort and strength.

    Chemo is tough! Our body changes, we are tired and don’t feel like ourselves. This t-shirt with the quote “Fighting cancer, going through chemo, and still this sexy” is a funny way to celebrate that we are still ourselves. Take it to your next chemo session and you will not only feel better, but you will also make everyone around you chuckle.

    This blanket feels like a hug, full of warmth and softness. It has words of comfort and healing that can help both the sick and their caregivers. When you wrap yourself in this blanket, every part of it has words of hope and inspiration.  Getting this as a gift always brings a smile and a lasting feeling of being loved and cared for.

    This small wall plaque reminds us of the things necessary to get through any difficult time. It reads “Always remember you are braver than you think, stronger than you seem and loved more than you know.”  When my friend was struggling and her confidence was at an all-time low, these words by her bedside helped ground her. Getting through cancer takes inner strength and outward support, and this little box plaque is a quick reminder.
