When October rolls around, the first thing that comes to mind is pumpkins. Halloween is right around the corner, and cheerful trick or treaters are picking out their costumes, eagerly awaiting their free candy. But October also has a deeper meaning: it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in women. One out of every eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. Whether you are a warrior, survivor, or supporter, you have likely been touched by breast cancer in one way or another. Spreading awareness is important for so many reasons: it encourages donation, inspires others to get mammograms and breast exams, and generally shows support for the cause. Whatever your reason is for spreading awareness, there are lots of ways to do it. Here are our top breast cancer awareness gifts for you and your loved ones.
Pink Ribbon Baseball Caps
Who doesn't love a classic baseball cap? These pink ribbon ball caps are fashionable, functional, and show your support. If you have hair loss, try wearing with the Cardani Ponytail Headband for full head coverage.
Breast Cancer Awareness Jewelry
Jewelry is a good, more subtle way to spread awareness. These sterling silver earrings are perfect for women who aren't too keen on pink. There are also many other awareness jewelry options to choose from.
Ribbon Cookie Cutter
This pink ribbon cookie cutter is a creative gift that cuts outside of the box. You can give your loved ones the cookie cutter itself, or you can bake up a batch of ribbon cookies for a gift that keeps on giving.
Breast Cancer Awareness T-Shirts
Perfect for the breast cancer fighters and survivors in your life, these inspirational T-shirts highlight the "can" in cancer to show that anything is possible.
Pink Ribbon Headwear
This beanie and headwrap make ideal gifts for the women in your life currently fighting breast cancer. They are super soft and provide full head coverage, so they're perfect for women with hair loss. They're also a great option for women who like to wear hats or want to protect their hair.
Pink is, of course, the official color of breast cancer awareness. Wearing pink is a foolproof way to show your support. Shop the Cardani Bamboo Collection for a coordinated pink look.
