stuck for a present idea for my older sister

We have done almost all homemade gifts this year so far...I have a big family and a load of new bills so trying to keep it cheap...I have 5 sisters and have so far done framed scrapbook pages/altered photo gifts of my sisters and their dh's/so's and even one for my mom and stepdad...then it clicked "what on earth will I make Nicole"...her and my bil split while I was living in England and I've never even met her current bf who she's been with for over a year. She's been a totally different person since her split from bil and her 3 kids, even landing herself in jail for theft once. She's doing miles better now and trying to stay away from old bad habits, partying, etc. I love her to bits (she's my big sis) but her bf sounds like an immature brat, even from her. lol. Obviously I don't want to do a framed page of them (wouldnt have a pic of him anyway lol) and if I do one of just her she may wonder why I didn't include him. Anyone have any saving grace gift ideas for a sticky situation? lol.

Maybe a pic of you and her or one of her and her kids. Just a thought.

That pic would be nice, you could focus on family instead of just her and her life sort of thing, that way she won't wonder why her bf isn't included.

Yeah, I like going with a family theme.

You could also do one focused on the sisters with pics of all of your girls.

thanks ladies.

yep I have the title as "Forever Family" and a wooden heart on the frame. I'm doing an altered small frame instead of a page...since they are cheaper than the big frames I've been using so far. lol

unfortunately i can't use a pic of all of us sisters since her and two of my other sisters haven't spoken much since all of the drama....more "hi" and "bye"...that's it. But I think this pic will work and then Wayne gets to be in it too. PLus the focus of the people is quite small and so is the hole on the frame. lol
