Nice things to do for relative with breast cancer

A relative of DH's has aggressive breast cancer. She's a very private person, but I'd love to do something special that shows we're thinking of her. She's having chemo atm.

Is there anything anybody did for you or sent you that showed they cared? Are flowers ideal or cliched?

Something soft and comfortable (but luxurious/glam also) - posh pyjamas, mohair blanket - that's the sort of thing my mother really appreciated anyway.

White Company cashmere bed socks, or one of their really soft hand towels/flannels. These have been some of the best and useful presents I have had.

Oh, fab - hadn't thought of cosy things at all. Thank you!
