Question Options for expiring points

My wife and I each have ~150,000 miles accumulated over 20 years and always intended for a business class flight to South Africa. The miles will expire on 30 April and health issues make a qualifying flight before then impossible.
What is our best option? Trading the points for gifts seems very poor value. Is it possible/legal to sell the points to another FB member?

You will not be able to sell FB miles. Nor solicit for a sale on FT

Maybe you can book your South Africa trip now but for an actual flight in some months when you estimate the health issues will be resolved ?
Hoping for you that you can have a good use of those miles.
