Holiday Gift Guide for a Breast Cancer Warrior

One of the top things I get asked is what to give someone that has been diagnosed or is fighting cancer. I felt thankful for everything I was gifted throughout treatment but there were a few items that I feel is a must-have for any #cancerwarrior. I’m sharing them below as well as listed out the links below (hover over the item name) for easy shopping. Remember, the best gift you can give anyone battling cancer is your time and love. It’s never about what you say but it’s about being there to give a hug, listen, or to share a meal together. The best gifts are free but the below aren’t bad either 🙂

GiftGuide

 

  1. Toms Slipper From $45These are perfect house slippers as they are warm and hug the feet. Also, I am a big supporter of Tom’s mission of buy one give one.
  2. NutriBullet Pro $99.99– This was hands down the most used item during treatment. You can easily make smoothies, soups and it’s well-proportioned and easy to use.
  3. Blanket Scarf $12– I had chemotherapy in the winter and this was such a cozy thing to bring with me every treatment. It doubles as a toasty shawl as well.
  4. Extra Soft PRO-SYS toothbrush $6 for 2 – Oral hygiene is super important, even more during treatment when you’re extra sensitive. Having a soft toothbrush like this is key to making sure you don’t further irritate your already-sensitive mouth linings.
  5. Books – Be careful with this one as getting an influx of cancer-related books can stress the person out. Here are my top 4 picks for books I read during treatment.
  6. Coconut oil $17 – I had 99 problems during chemo and coconut oil solved like 85 of them. Seriously, I used it for my skin, nails, scalp, lips. It’s a life-saver. Not all are created equal so you want to make sure it’s not processed, organic and non GMO.
  7. IT Cosmetics Brow Pencil $17– Eyebrows make a huge difference and without them, it can really do a number on your self-confidence. This universal eyebrow pencil works with your skin tone, lasts all day and is very easy to control.
  8. Glass Water Bottle $30– Chemo gives you a metallic taste in your mouth so drinking out of metal water bottles were impossible for me. This glass one was great because it helped me easily track my water intake without any weird tastes.
  9. Silk Eye Mask $14 – Insomnia is a huge problem and although I was given a lot of sleep aides, this mask helped me sleep longer and keep the light out. Made of 100% Mulberry Silk.
