I’m confused. He’s in remission and not in the hospital but you want to keep them entertained?

@Missymalumba:  Has he recently undergone treatment & is recouperating? Is this like a “congratulations for getting through chemo” kind of thing? 

In any case… a nice gift basket can be really anything he likes. Maybe do some research on the kinds of foods or teas patients might find beneficial. If he’s had chemo & has lost his hair maybe a nice warm, soft hat would be appreciated. Reading material, some light hearted/fun movies. You could maybe have one focused on having a nice date night at home- movie, gift certificate to someplace that delievers in their area, candles, wine or sparkling cider, some fun couple’s games… and if they have kids, offer to take them off their hands for the night.

Depends on a lot of things, age, how he is feeling atm etc.  

My cousin is dying of cancer – he was asked what was on his bucket list, one of the things was to go to an aussie rules (football) final in Sydney, so a family friend bought him, his brother and dad tickets and he absolutely loved it!

Of course, if he is too sick from chemo for this sort of thing, that wouldn’t be suitable.

@Missymalumba:  Got it. Well depending on your price range, I would probably get a 24 year old married guy a season or two of his favorite show, or one similar in genre to what he watches. (I’m thinking like West Wing or Sopranos or True Blood but maybe a comedy like Home Improvement or something that he may have watched as a kid but could still appreciate as an adult?) Snacks that he can tolerate during treatment, drinks. I know ginger candy helps with feeling sick from chemo. A fun card game that lots of people haven’t played is Set
