Holidays are a perfect time to thank the people in our lives for their hard work, kindness and support throughout the year. For many of us that includes caregivers, and members of our medical team. (For me, that’s my oncology nurse Jan- who always returns my calls quickly and patiently answers my many questions!)
Ellen and I often get asked, "What is a good gift to say thank you?"
For starters, we recommend a gift basket. Now we know that we are not scoring points on originality here, but a gift basket filled with goodies that can be shared with the rest of the staff or enjoyed with family, is always a treat. For the health conscious, we recommend The “Nature’s Picnic” gift-basket, filled with fruit and a variety of delicious nuts. If the recipient is someone with a sweet tooth, then opt for the appropriately named “Thank You Gift-basket” filled with mouthwatering chocolates.
For a more personal gift, one of our favorites is The Solstice Tea Set. It comes complete with a porcelain teapot, teacup, and saucer on a sleek wooden tray. Who wouldn’t appreciate relaxing with a soothing cup of their favorite tea after a busy day in the chemo treatment room? (And remember to type in our exclusive code "GLAMMED" at checkout for 10% off of your purchase)
And for a gift that we like to say is "one size that fits all," and is a present that even the most finicky person will appreciate, we suggest giving a gift that gives back. Make a donation in that person’s name to your favorite non-profit organization or theirs.
