Why not call that friend?
You know the one – the one who is sad or grieving. The one who is struggling this year for whatever reason.
Ask if they want to do some last minute shopping with you.
“Would you like to Wally World or Target and pick up a few stocking stuffers? Maybe grab a quick lunch? My treat! I know the holidays can be hard, especially when you are missing your loved one so much. May I love you by going with you a few places?”
