My husband just received his "in remission" statement after 11 years of treatment for non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. I decided to give him a small gift each month, building up to a larger gift when he goes back for his yearly scan next May.
Smaller gifts included:
tower fan (he and I both love it!
Barnes and Nobles gift cards to load books on his Nook Color
Movie gift cards
Restaurant gift cards
games for us to play at home and with friends (Left, Right, Center game, etc.)
Basically a year-long celebration. I don't want to list his "big gift"--Saving that for a seret surprise.
I know you are so thankful!
What about a trip to the spa for both of you to enjoy spending time together, along with lunch and a movie for a day of fun celebrating this milestone?
I really like the "Fight like a girl" t-shirts from the link above. A few more ideas:
Spa day or spa-themed basket?
Gift certificate to a yoga studio?
Afghan or blanket?
Cozy robe and slippers?
Movie night in together? (Rented movie, takeout/pizza, popcorn, your great company)
Winter gloves/scarf set?
When my mom finished her radiation last year, we ordered a large cookie for her that had a large pink ribbon and flowers on it and said "Mommy kicked cancer's butt!" Yes, we are all grown adults but she is still our "mommy" and she loved it!
I would take her out and treat her to a 'Queen For A Day." Bagels & coffee, facial, massage, wine tasting, shopping for a new outfit, lunch and some unique little cafe....etc.
Whatever it takes to be the Queen.
