Finding the perfect gift for someone can be challenging at times. Do you buy something they NEED or something they WANT? How much should you spend? Now, try buying a gift for someone who was recently diagnosed with cancer, is in treatment for cancer or recovering from surgery. This can be overwhelming as you desperately search for the perfect gift, however, we can help!
A quick background story…
My mom and I had always been very close. Over the years she had become ill and was admitted into the hospital a few days before Christmas. The only gift I wanted that year was to celebrate one last Christmas with my mom and give her comfort and dignity.
I brought her a beautiful wrap she could put over her patient gown so she could feel special and festive on Christmas day. All the wonderful nurses commented on how beautiful she looked and how it gave her dignity as she felt dressed up for the holiday.
My gift was short lived as she passed away a short time later. The memories of the smile on her face that I cared enough to dress her up and make her feel special during the holidays in a hospital bed are ones I will never forget.
Wrapped in Love is a line of clothing and accessories I design for women with cancer, in treatment for cancer, are ill or convalescing, to provide comfort, dignity and style, despite illness. We have everything you need to tell that special someone you are there for them. In fact, we have put together a few shopping gift lists to help select the right gift for them:
