My very dear friend is due to start her 4th ivf cycle this month (with egg donor due to chemo).
I would like to get her a token gift, like a good luck charm but no idea what. I believe certain stones bring fertility luck etc. Does anyone believe in anything like that or have any ideas. Money is really tight atm so it's really just a token gift.
Really hope I don't offend anyone posting this here. TIA

Socks!! It's a tradition in IVF circles to gift fun socks to each other (there are groups where you can join and match with a 'sock buddy) to wear for egg collection / embryo transfer. Theatre gets chilly and it's nice to have something cheery on your feet when you're legs akimbo with your ankles in stirrups

I've given (and received) fun socks from other ladies doing IVF and it's a really nice thing to do. Wonder woman socks with capes, knee high socks with unicorns - all sorts of wild and wacky stuff

Not expensive but very meaningful xx
