Mother's Day Card & Gift ?

by Lizzy
(LA, CA, USA )

My boyfriend/fiance passed away in December 19th, 2018. We were only together for 6 months before he passed. However we knew each other since the beginning of 2018. I did meet his mom once. After he passed we stayed in contact and she did tell me he was going to propose. We have been texting each other every now and then. is it appropriate to send her a card and a small gift?

Mother's Day Card & Gift
by: Ms P Etiquette

Dear Lizzy,

First, I am sorry for your loss.

As far as a Mother's Day card and gift, this is totally up to you. There are no hard and fast rules in the area of gift giving. It comes down to what do you want to do. Sending her a card may be something she greatly appreciates as she goes through her first Mother's Day after the passing of her son. If you think it is something you want to do, then do it.
