Book some sort of a class that the two of you can take together. It could be a cooking class, painting class, dance lessons, yoga classes, or perhaps even a floral arrangement course. She will be touched by the gesture and an experience like this will offer opportunities to share, bond, and grow closer. It’s a gift for you too!
