While everyone experiences cancer and its treatment differently, most people undergoing chemotherapy will have very similar side effects - including nausea, pain, a change in skin texture, stress and trouble sleeping.
Every item in our Ultimate Chemo Hamper is specially designed to tackle those side effects, helping you or your loved one feel a little bit more normal during treatment.
Our Ultimate Cancer Hamper products in detail:
Gel Eye Mask: Perfect for soothing headaches, stress and helping you sleep when you are having hot spells. Put this gel eye mask in the fridge a couple of hours before you want to use it.
GelO Cool Pillow Mat: Chemotherapy can cause people to have hot flushes and night sweats, as well as itchy and burning skin - all of which can lead to trouble sleeping. This cooling pillow mat can chill your pillow for several hours at a time, helping to cool you down and soothe overheating or burning skin.
Defiant Beauty Itchy Skin Oil: Cancer treatment can often cause your skin to feel incredibly itchy, especially when undergoing chemotherapy. Itchy Skin Oil by Defiant Beauty was developed by a cancer survivor, and is made from entirely natural and organic ingredients known for their soothing properties.
Queasy Drops: Developed by healthcare professionals, Queasy Drops are a handy, sugar-free way to stop nausea and soothe the stomach. They can also alleviate dry mouth, and counteract the weird metallic taste some people get in their mouth during chemo sessions.
Gin Gins Ginger Chews: Ginger is well known as a natural way of stopping nausea. Gin Gins Ginger chews are stimulating, delicious and satisfyingly spicy which helps to fend off queasy feelings and the weird taste you can get in your mouth during chemo sessions. Perfect for taking on-the-go.
Badger Balm Muscle Rub - 21g: Cancer and chemotherapy can cause fatigue, soreness, and muscle pain and weakness. This natural balm, made with cayenne pepper and ginger, gently warms up and stimulates circulation to help loosen muscles and joints.
Fleecy Microwavable Lavender Wheat Wrap: This soft and cosy wrap can be heated in the microwave; the natural filling provides therapeutic relief for aches and pains, and the lavender scent will help you relax and unwind.
The Little Book of Mindfulness: Mindfulness can help many people living with cancer and is especially helpful in dealing with insomnia, pain, stress and anxiety. The Little Book of Mindfulness is a beautifully illustrated, travel-sized book which includes over 40 easy mindfulness techniques and exercises to try.

I bought this hamper for a friends birthday when she was going through chemo, she has since said that she has used every item and it has really helped alleviate her symptoms she particularly liked the anti itch oil. I'm so glad i bought it her.
I stumbled across this site while looking for gifts for people with cancer. I found this hamper and thought it had a great selection of useful and practical products. I received the parcel very quickly with great communication via email throughout. My mum has used everything and we've re-ordered more of most of the items in this set.
The products in the hamper allowed me to see that relief for my symptoms could be found and source these products. Looking on the website extended the knowledge of what is out there for support.
I bought this for a friend that is going through chemotherapy. The items itself are good however I paid $4.15 for the "luxury gift wrap" but I'm glad I got it sent to my house first as the gift wrap was cheap blue tissue paper with a cheap Christmas bow on top. I would have been so embarrassed had that gone directly to my friend that way! Skip the wrap if you purchase from here and wrap it yourself. Also the eye mask seems of cheap quality. Everything else was as presented and looks to be good quality.
I bought this hamper for a friend, the first one came within a few days but the second parcel of this order didn't come till after a week later which I wasn't aware of and bit disappointed as my friend has started their chemo the week of the first parcel arriving. Overall it is a fab pressie and has everything he needs to help him through his chemo
