Pretty Gifts for Women Having Chemo

Product Spotlight : Blue Skies Bold Beanies Gift Posy Bouquet. The Ultimate Luxury Comfy Gift for Ladies with Cancer Hair Loss from Chemotherapy Treatments. 

Three quality cotton soft beanies rolled to look like roses and resented with silk flowers to make a gift posy bouquet. A traditional gift (flowers by post) but also practical too. Great alternative to real flowers when you are ill (and you don't need to find yet another vase!). The Blue Skies Bouquet Bold Beanies Bouquet Posy includes blue toned hats... One Liberty Art Fabrics blue printed hat and two co-ordinating plains. 

This ready made gift takes difficult task of choosing which styles to choose from you and makes it quicker and easier... alternatively you can choose the hats you want in a bouquet by adding three or more hats to your basket and selecting the 'Make into Bouquet' option also. 

Silky soft stretchy cotton cancer hats made to fit snuggly onto a sore scalp with an emphasis on comfort and ease. Easy to put on and so soft and comfortable to forget about the hair loss and get on with daily activities or simply keep the head at an even temperature to get a good nights sleep. 

All bouquets (or single beanies) can be sent with a handwritten gift note directly to the recipient. Please add note at checkout.

The very first bouquet ever sent was to a woman suffering with Alopecia Areata, so suitable for all types of hair thinning, medical or otherwise. These stretchy breathable hats are also suitable to wear over hair as a sweat wicking barrier under all types of helmets and hard hats or hijabs.

Cancer Sleep Hats UK

Cancer Sleep Hats UK

Bold Beanies cotton chemotherapy hats are so soft and stretchy they fit snuggly, but not tightly onto a sensitive scalp for a good nights rest. They are made in the UK from luxury natural fabrics and the highest quality design construction. We ship worldwide.

I know from my own experience that finding something comfortable and breathable is hard and yet very important when suffering from hair loss, especially from cancer chemotherapy as you lose your hair suddenly and feel the cold or more permanent hair loss such as Alopecia. 

You can't wear a wig or scarf comfortably in bed and they slip about when you move. I ended up wearing woolly hats in bed, but these were itchy and often too hot... so I would take it off... and then find myself freezing cold, especially as I had my chemo during winter months and lived in a draughty house. But these soft hats are great for warmer weather too as they are temperature controlling and wick away sweat.
