What nice gift can I give a chemotherapy patient?
My aunt is undergoing a chemotherapy regiment, and I am stumped with what to give her for X-mas. She's very "girly," but since the chemo treatments, she is restricted with nail polish, perfumes, etc. What can a give a wonderful woman undergoing chemo for X-mas? All ideas welcomed, thank you for participating!

How about a pink ipod shuffle?

There are some GREAT no-scent lotions out there too. . . it's not that she's restricted from using perfumes etc, it's just that they may not smell good to her and/or other patients around her getting treatment!

She might enjoy a great massage, so a GC for that is a good idea. Chemo is stressful and contrary to some people's beliefs, massage is NOT harmful for cancer patients.

A "chemo bag" is a fun idea with a cute tote, a cozy blankie she can take with her (chemo can make you cold) and some snacks, tissues, etc.

If she's going to loose her hair, cute hats are fun! (And necessary.)

Nail care sets are good too since she probably shouldn't go to a nail place. . . that's a no no!

Little luxuries that she likes of any kind are really nice.

It's so thoughtful of you to ask.

Has she lost her hair to chemo? If so then take her out shopping for some cute hats or scarves. If taking her out is not an option then just buy her a couple of hats or scarves.

My Aunt passed away with Ovarian cancer last year. She and I went to a day spa together and had a manicure, pedicure, and massage. We had a blast that day and I remember now how much fun she and I had together that day. It will be a day that I will NEVER forget.

Why don't you give your Aunt a spa package like that? It will make her feel better and help her relax at least for a little while.

My Aunt seemed like all the inspirational books that were being given to her in droves upset her. I know everyone who gave them to her meant well but someone in her and your aunt's condition gets tired of all the "stay strong, love everyone, live each day to the fullest" crap.

I tried to treat my Aunt like there wasn't anything wrong with her where other people just doted on her making her feel like an invalid. I think that whatever you do get her, make it something that won't remind her of how sick she is.

I agree with Rachel's idea: the best gift is something that you two can share together, something that will give you a happy memory to hold on to. It doesn't neccesarily have to be a spa, but anything that will leave you with a good feeling and a happy memory of time spent with your aunt is a great gift.

Although some books are hard to choose for people, I still think it makes a nice gift for someone who has to endure treatments like that, for long periods of time. If you check out the "inspirational" section of the bookstores, you can find a lot of feel-good books that would uplift her spirits.

A blanket would be a great gift, especially if it's homemade! Chemo makes you sick and loose weight, so at times you can get very cold. I blanket for the winter months would be a great idea. (Maybe even a sweater and socks to match!)

First, it is very nice you are so considerate of her needs.
As for gifts, I would think a gift basket with some nice warm socks, maybe some dvds to watch, a nice comfy,luxurious bathrobe(victorias secret has some really nice ones), etc would be good. Anything comforting should be good. If she is up to it, maybe plan a quiet activity for the two of you. Have a happy holiday and the best to your aunt.
