My best friend was just diagnosed with Inflammatory Breast Cancer - I want to give her little trinkets/gifts on an on-going basis as she goes through chemo and don't know what would be best - she's not in need of anything in particular - might sound silly but wanted to know if anyone who has gone through chemo especially appreciated certain items they received during this time - -

My mother has been sending my boyfriend a joke for every day he's in chemo.  She takes index cards and writes them on by hand, then cuts them into 5 little flaps so he can open one a day.  He appreciates that she takes the time.

I've been getting him little things to help with his symptoms, like nice lotion for his feet since the chemo did nerve damage, a ton of hats when he lost all his hair, etc.
