That seems like a really sweet gift. Maybe you could also send her a basket of wine and chocolates? I bet it would be amazing for her, because when is she ever going to buy herself something like that, too?

MrsPhilly:  How is she financially? because if he has done the dirty and she is surviving on very little as nice as that necklace is would it be the best use of money for her in her situation?

Also being a sole parent taking care of children fulltime is demanding and leaves little “me” time. Maybe a better gift would be paying for some babysitting?

When my BFF split for her partner and father of her child I made a care basket for her full of food and essentials. She appreciated it much more than the self help books and tokens that other people gave her because it was practical and was what she really needed in that time.

MrsPhilly:  this is a great idea!! I think the symbolism of the tree will mean a lot to her. Any gesture should be appreciated. I’m sure it will still be an adjustment for her so I am going to give the corny answer and say that listening/checking in on her is the best gift. Nothing material compares to the stuff you share in person or even during phone conversations. its different but when my friends boyfriend died I made it a point to send her flowers on valentines day since I knew it would be a difficult time. You know her best but I’m sure any gesture would be appreciated

MrsPhilly:  If she is sorted financially then it is a really nice and thoughtful gift 🙂

I think the necklace is really beautiful and a great idea for a gift. I would write her a really nice card or letter to go along with it that she can read on her own if she wants. Just pump her up in it, how strong and wonderful she is, and how much you care about her. A nice bottle of wine or teas would be a nice gesture as well.
