I hope you find a solution you can live with.

I may be in a similar position one day.

you could always donate the money yourself to an organization of your choice or emphasize that you don't want anything for Christmas, including money, and you'd be more happy just spending time with her. I am sure that even if she doesn't have much she's giving to you from the bottom of her heart because she loves you and wants you to have the money more than her. This may be how she feels giving in the holiday season and you can just put a smile on your face and act extra grateful, perhaps you could even do something for her with the money. Home improvement, pay a bill for her, etc...
