Inspirational Gifts for Cancer Patients

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.

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.

    About the Author

    When my best friend was diagnosed with Cancer, I wanted to give her a care package to let her know I was thinking of her. I was just guessing at what to include and I learned a lot about what can be both useful and meaningful to someone walking their cancer journey. My own frustration led me to start Help Them Fight to create a resource for others going through the same situation.
