Hi Kayla

Thanks for your question and what a lovely thought for your boyfriend's family! I'm so sorry for your (and their) loss.

I'm not sure what to suggest to you since I don't know his family or what is important to them over the holidays.

But a couple of suggestions:
You might have his picture imposed on a beautiful Christmas ornament for their tree or have a special photo of him with his family placed in an lovely Christmas frame that could be placed on the mantel so that he is with them, even if he's not.

You could also write a story for them, telling them of the memories you have of your Christmases with their son and how much he meant to you.

Bear in mind, this will be a happy and very sad time for them (and you) so whatever you give them, will probably involke both smiles and tears.

Hopefully some other readers may have suggestions of you so check back with us, ok?!
