Show that you care and select the best health plan for her and kick-start it with the starting premium. You can rest easy knowing that your sister’s finances are not vulnerable to medical emergencies.

  2. Virtual Gold – If you think physical gold is too old school, look for non-physical options instead. You can easily buy digital gold for her, or gift her units of a gold ETF or gold mutual fund.
