Whatever you choose to do, get the whole family together and have an early Christmas. Get her an alternative gift:
1. Make her something special (a variety of her favorite cookies, a care package of beautiful-scented bath products, etc.)
2. Take her on a beautiful vacation somewhere she would love.
3. What were her favorite hobbies or things to do? Get her something in relation.
4. Get her tickets for her favorite sports team (and see if they can do a meet and greet with her), go to a concert, musical, theater play, etc. Whatever she enjoys the most.
5. Gather together with your other family members or siblings and write her a beautiful song to perform to her. If nobody in your family sings or plays any instruments, see if you can get together with a local school marching band or music teacher, or any volunteers in your community who can work with you to create a beautiful song. Let her know how much she's loved.
My heart goes out to you and your family during this difficult time. Please stay strong. <3
