The Gift Shop of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center carries an extensive selection of toiletries and clothing, as well as balloons, flowers, games, candies, fruit baskets, jewelry and plush toys.

We are pleased to offer you the opportunity to have a gift delivered to your friend or loved one who is in our care. Items from the Gift Shop are available for delivery to patients receiving care at Memorial Sloan Kettering's inpatient hospital, located at 1275 York Avenue.

About Our Merchandise

Flowers, fruit baskets, and candy are popular gift choices for adults. The Gift Shop receives fresh flowers and fruit baskets daily. Special requests can be made. The cost of in-stock seasonal flowers starts at $35; special-order floral arrangements start at $50. Artificial floral arrangements are also available for patients who cannot receive live flowers or prefer a more long-lasting option. Popular chocolate-dipped strawberry boxes are available in a half dozen and a dozen, respectively. Orders for Edible Arrangements can also be made. Selections of Godiva and Dylan’s Candy range in price from $15 to $50. Balloon boutiques are available as well.

For children there are balloons, games, and plush toys. Prices range from $20 to $100.

Gift Restrictions

The Gift Shop does not carry latex balloons. We use only high-quality Mylar balloons. Flowers, plants, and food are restricted in some hospital units. If this is the case, we will suggest alternative gift options, including artificial floral arrangements.

Purchase Gifts by Telephone

Gifts can be purchased by calling 212-639-8035, Monday through Friday, from 10:00 am to 2:30 pm, and on weekends and holidays from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm Eastern time. Your gift will be delivered free of charge. Orders will not be accepted after 3:00 pm; preorders are not permitted since patient circumstances could change.

Orders for patients should be placed after the patient has been assigned to a room. You may call the Patient Information desk at 212-639-7081 to request a patient’s room number. It is also important to find out at this time whether or not the patient is allowed to receive flowers. A short message can be sent with your gift, or if you prefer, the Gift Shop staff can select a card to express your sentiment.

The minimum order is $25. All major credit cards are accepted; ALL SALES ARE FINAL.

The Gift Shop will not be responsible for situations where early patient discharges occur after orders are placed.

Visiting the Gift Shop

The Gift Shop — located at 1275 York Avenue — offers gourmet coffee, light meals, and healthy grab-and-go options, as well as the opportunity to browse in a relaxing environment.
