How to choose the right gift

When you have a friend or loved-one with a cancer diagnosis it can be hard to know what to do or say. You might want to buy something, but it's not easy to know what is appropriate.

We are an independent UK company that supports the international cancer community providing care packages and inspirational items for all those with cancer, covering all ages and stages.

Cancer Care Packages

Our thoughtful, appropriate and useful gift hampers are curated in the UK by people who have had experience with cancer. Not only are the hampers comforting, but they also have practical items to help people on their journey and through cancer treatment. Many gifts take into account treatment side effects and for UK purchases of any care package we promise same day dispatch when ordered before 2pm GMT and free delivery when you buy over the value of £50.

Examples of items in care packages include

✪ WOVEN COOL FOOD BAG: Having several small meals a day is often advised when having chemotherapy. A small personal cooler enables a patient to always have a healthy snack handy, it is practical and robust enough for everyday use.

✪ BLANKET: A soft, snuggly blanket for a warm, cozy and comforting feeling during therapy, at the hospital or at home.

✪ BED SOCKS: Perfect Solution to cold feet that can result from cancer treatment and also great for relaxing and convalescence.

✪ ORGANIC LIP BALM: Instantly soothes dry lips and locks in moisture for a bit of pampering.

Best selling care packages

But we don't just create care packages.

We also have general inspirational gifts for patients as well as items specifically for female and male cancer patients and children with cancer.

Examples of inspirational gifts

Searching for the ideal gift is easy on this site, as we have categories for each treatment, for example, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery. With several gifts focusing on specific side effects of treatments. You can also search for gifts relating to specific cancers such as lung, prostate or breast cancer.

Gifts for all ages and stages
