My mum was recently in hospital over the very hot period of weather and I came across a product called a Chillow which is like a pillow which stays cool for over 4 hours and feels like the coolness of a pillow when you first turn it over, but remains cool rather than heats up under the skin. I bought it for her and it was a bit of a faff to set up but once done offered great relief.
I have not tried the pillow myself but am thinking of getting one for my OH who suffers with the hot flushes especially over night.
I understand that you can get different sizes.
It may be something that other men may want to look at, or for wives to consider as a gift.
I have no connection with the product in any way.
I also found another website called 'not another bunch of flowers' that offers thoughtful gift ideas and cards for people going through Chemo and other illnesses.
Thought I would share with friends on here.
Wishing everyone all the best
