Long story short, I’m missing my good friend’s daughter’s dohl (first birthday). The first birthday is a really important celebration in Korean culture and I’m so sad to miss it. I’m also really bummed because for a variety of reasons I was unable to attend this friend’s bachelorette party and baby shower. She’s been super understanding but I know she’s been disappointed we haven’t been able to celebrate these big milestones together. Is there anything I can do to show her how much I care and wish I could be there? A birthday gift is a given, but something else to recognize the significance of the celebration? Thanks so much for any suggestions!

Do you live close by or far away? Maybe lunch together.... or send flowers?! Definitely a gift for the LO!

Maybe an engraved photo frame that they could put a photo from the important event in to display?

Could you offer to purchase a special outfit to be worn at the party or is that taboo?

Could you coordinate with her family/spouse and send her off to the salon tog get makeup done and a blow out?
And maybe actively putting effort into scheduling a get together?
