Um... no, not yet. Can you explain more?

I don't want to get my friend a M Day gift from me... I just want to facilitate her getting a gift/acknowledgment from her kids.

Her kids are 12, 11, and 9. They're at the age where ideally D takes them to get something, but this year D has other stuff to worry about. That's kind of why I thought maybe I could help. I don't think her kids would really have any ideas about what to give (she's really hard to buy for), so I was going to have suggestions for them.

The more I think about it, the more I think offering to take them to buy a card for her is the way to go. Maybe I ought to offer it to her DH, so he doesn't think that I think he's a jerk (I don't) and "assume" he's not helping his kids with this. For all I know, he might be! (He doesn't usually shower BF with gifts... that's why I don't think it's high on the priority scale for him)
