names have been changed to protect the broken hearted

How do you help someone that is going through a hard time with a breakup? When you get broken up with how do you want others to help you?

My little sister Allie and her girlfriend, Christy, broke up 3 weeks ago. They had been dating for 2 years and were living together. Christy was Allie's first love and Christy broke up with her. They were never fully out with their relationship because Christy was only out to a few people. The breakup sucked in a lot of ways- Christy brought a friend with her to break up with my sister because she needed 'emotional support'. It was short and Christy didn't want Allie to talk very much. Christy also didn't really explain why she wanted to break up with her.

Now my sister has found out by word of mouth that Christy fell out of love with her. This is all hitting Allie very hard as she is still in love with her. Allie thought she was done with the period of intense mourning but today she called me sobbing. I let her talk as much as I could, tried to give her advice that didn't suck and just tried to be a good sister. I've been trying to talk to Allie every day in one way or another, either over the internet or on the phone.

I'm really hurting because Allie's hurting. I really wish I could wave my magic wand and make everything okay. I want to do something really awesome for my sister. We live on opposite sides of the country so sadly we haven't been able to hang out. I'll see her over Christmas but I want to send her a really neat care package. What should I include in it?

ETA: a sex toy will be included in this package. I don't know anything about vibrators and such. What should I get her?
