MIL rings the bell today, gift ideas?

MIL finishes her treatment today for cancer, having had 2 surgeries and 1 round of radiotherapy. She rings the bell on her way out, I'm sure you lovely ladies who have been in a similar position know what I'm talking about.

I'd like to get her a gift to celebrate and mark this occasion as the next chapter. Any ideas?! Thanks

That's good news OP.
Would she appreciate afternoon tea?

What a lovely DIL you are. How about a plant in a pot?

Thanks for your suggestions. I wasn't sure at all what to get her but I actually really like the idea of a plant. To symbolise growth and life. god I hope it doesn't die!

Have a look at the present tree, they are lovely and each tree has a 'meaning'

I've sent them a couple of times now as gifts and they have been very well received

Could you also get her an actual bell? To ring when she feels like a boost?
