Gifts for someone going through chemo?

If you were going to give someone going through chemo a gift, what would you give them? I have a co-worker just starting chemo for Breast Cancer and I want to do something but I'm not sure what. Any ideas?

Can you maybe put a gift basket together for her, some books or magazines to read or DVD's to watch for when she's home after chemo and not up to doing much else, a gift card for a restaurant to pick up dinner or lunch when she doesn't feel like cooking.

Hi Mary,

I have a friend whose child has cancer and my friends and I have put together a basket with restaurant gift certificates, coloring books and puzzles for the child, a coupon from a local laundry for drop off service, and a gas card.
