The gift comes just days after Bryant and her children spent their first Father’s Day without their family patriarch.
Kobe and Gigi Bryant passed away just over six months ago, when, on January 26, the helicopter they were traveling in crashed outside of Calabasas, California.
The cause of the crash has still not yet been determined at this time. Though the post-mortem report that was recently released revealed that all nine passengers died instantly upon impact.
Kobe and Gigi were also with Alyssa Altobelli, John Altobelli, Keri Altobelli, Sarah Chester, Payton Chester, Christina Mauser and pilot Ara Zobayan when the helicopter crashed into a hill.
