We understand that creating a care package is not always easy and there is no perfect gift for a cancer patient. Including gift items to help your loved one feel safe in the hospital, entertained during treatment, pampered, comforted, and loved can be tricky. So we have taken this headache away from you to create a collection of thoughtful gift packages that can help you show your support.
Whether you know someone who has recently received their diagnosis, is having treatment or has been living with cancer for a while, we have a range of thoughtful gifts with carefully sourced products that can help.
All our gifts are safe for any cancer treatment and you can find a box here specifically crafted for most therapies including radiotherapy treatment, surgery and chemotherapy treatment. Some of these gifts take into account the side effects of specific therapies, such as dry skin or nausea.
We carefully construct each cancer care package so that you can feel secure that your gift will be welcome and offer a 100% guaranteed refund if you are not happy.
These gift packs are quickly dispatched and you can include a personal gift message.

If you're looking for gift ideas for someone going through cancer, a care package can be a thoughtful and practical option. Cancer treatment can be a difficult and stressful experience, and a care package filled with practical gifts can provide much-needed comfort, support and some little lifts. These thoughtful gifts can address specific needs, such as alleviating side effects from radiotherapy treatment, chemotherapy or providing items for hospital stays. Moreover, giving a care package can make your loved one feel special and show them that you care during this difficult time.

We closely monitor the latest cancer research to ensure that none of our products are contraindicated. However, if you have any reservations, we suggest seeking medical advice from a qualified professional.
To ensure that our packages are genuinely considerate, we sought out input from individuals who have faced cancer, as well as their friends and loved ones, for gift ideas. We concentrated on items that were particularly appreciated by patients and that offered comfort, indulgence, relief, and happiness. Moreover, our company's founder, who is a former breast cancer patient, supervises all of the products included in our collections.
Our gift baskets and care packages may contain any of the following items:
Eye masks, comfortable socks, hand sanitizer, notepads, inspirational messages, pillows, blankets, tissues, gentle skincare products, peppermint tea, water bottles, and more. We strive to include useful and comforting items that may come in handy during hospital visits, chemotherapy, or after receiving a cancer diagnosis. We aim to cover every aspect of the individual's journey.
We offer care packages specifically designed for young cancer patients, containing a range of useful and entertaining items, including stuffed animals, bubbles, fun blankets, and games.

We understand that mental health is an essential aspect of cancer treatment and recovery, and our gifts aim to promote positivity and well-being during this challenging time. While we cannot claim that our gifts provide a cure for mental health issues, we strive to curate a collection of items that are comforting, uplifting, and supportive. We are also mindful of the language we use in our gifts to ensure that they do not cause any additional stress to the person receiving them. Moreover, we offer specific packages that prioritize self-care, which we recognize as a crucial aspect of the cancer journey.
We support people having treatment for cancer, as well as their friends, family members, and colleagues. Our approach involves creating resources that are not generally available, such as our "I HAVE CANCER" page. We also offer a Facebook group for confidential peer support, personal cancer stories, a cancer-freebies directory, and more. Our resources extend to the friends and loved ones of cancer patients, as seen on our "I HAVE A FRIEND WITH CANCER" page. Here, we offer things like free empathy eCards and a tips email course to understand how to help someone with cancer. We also have inspirational quotes, memes, cancer cartoons, and information sheets. In addition, we partner with cancer charities to help them fundraise and raise awareness, providing gift box donations and financial support, and driving awareness campaigns.
