Sending a Big Hug Box is a heartfelt way to show support and love to someone you know facing cancer, from afar. Filled to the brim with empowering and practical products specially selected to help with many of the common side effects of treatment.
In every Big Hug Box your friend, loved-one or colleague will find:
1 x pair of Resilient Cactus Socks by Lafitte x Monique Gabrielle Illustration - Remind someone special of their strength and resilience with these cheerful and snuggly cactus socks. Made from a cotton blend and manufactured here in Australia by Lafitte, this special addition was designed for The Big Hug Box by Melbourne-based Illustrator Monique Gabrielle and will be sure to bring a smile to the recipient's face. One size will fit most (Men 6-11, Women 8-12).
1 x 100% Organic Bamboo Pillowcase by Ecosa - This pillowcase is an absolute favourite in our Big Hug Boxes. It is extremely soft and breathable, not only will this help with quality of sleep but will also assist with scalp sensitivity from hair loss.
1 x Relaxation Tea by Tea Tonic - A restive and soothing herbal beverage for the mind and soul, with a unique lemon, lavender taste. An ideal rich accompaniment to our modern lifestyle, especially during and after a long day - or last thing at night. Ideal for calming nerves, helping people get to sleep & stay asleep. Each box includes 20 individually wrapped unbleached teabags that are organic, gluten free, vegan friendly and of course caffeine free.
1 x Milk Udder Cream 120ml by Moo Goo - A much loved favourite by patients facing treatment for cancer and it is easy to see why! A lightweight moisturiser that easily sinks into skin, this moisturiser is made with natural oils like sweet almond & olive oil. Milk Udder cream is also full of natural ingredients including aloe vera and natural vitamin E.
1 x "You Crack me Up" Lipbalm by Woohoo Body- We know our patients will love this award winning, ultra-smooth, buttery, unscented lip balm that delivers hours (and hours, and hours!) of moisture and protection. Soften and moisturise dry, rough, chapped lips all day long. We also absolutely love that it’s packaged in compostable cardboard!
1 x Sticky Date & Ginger Gluten-free Cookie 60g by Byron Bay Cookie Company - We know that chemo can cause havoc on taste buds and so these super soft moreish date and ginger biscuits are the perfect snack for any patient. Gluten-free and nut-free; an individually wrapped sweet treat to lift the mood and help reduce nausea of your loved one.
1 x Bicarb-Free Deodorant Paste 35g by No Pong - We know that treatments can leave patients more sensitive to their usual products, so we’ve included a tin of No Pong bicarb free anti odourant paste. This product is good for your loved one and the planet. Each tin is free from palm oil, parabens and plastic, and is all-natural, cruelty-free and Aussie-made. With low fragrance and gentle on the skin, this product is suitable and effective for freshness for all kinds of underarms.
1 x Oral Care Kit - Xylitol “Pur Mints” and TePe Gentle Care Toothbrush - In working with Dental Health Professionals The Big Hug Box is proud to provide products that will assist patients with their oral care health. Xylitol, found in Pur Natur mints is a natural sweeter that assists with symptoms of dry mouth, another common side effect from treatment. Some cancer treatments effect cells in the mouth, causing redness, swelling and tenderness, the gentle TePe Gentle Care Brush is a super soft brush recommended for patients for gentle cleaning.
1 x Inspirational Affirmation Card - “One Step at a Time is Okay” - Words can uplift the spirits of any person whose eyes fall upon them.
1 x Mindfulness, Meditation and Heartfulness Online Sessions Voucher - Exclusive content created by Head and Heart Mindfulness to help patients calm their minds and hearts during overwhelming feelings of uncertainty whilst enduring treatment. Inside their Big Hug Box, patients will receive a special code to access content when and where they like.
