    The only thing I would have a thought about is what she'll do with a kid's book. Will it just be a constant reminder of "if the baby was here, I could read this to him/her..."

    I have the 1st anniversary of my stillborn daughter coming up and honestly, I wouldn't expect to receive a present from anyone, although if they let me know they were thinking of me - that would be a wonderful present in itself. It is lovely that you do want to give a gift, and I don't know your friends obviously, but I would find a book a bit weird as I would think I wouldn't be able to use it. Sorry, I don't want to offend, but just thought I'd be honest. Maybe a lovely picture frame for them? I know pictures is about all we have of our little one, and that is something I'd love to receive even though we don't put our pictures of Lexie on show.
    Personally, I'd just be impressed that my friends remembered the date as stillborns don't get celebrated like bubs that live, so I wouldn't get too concerned about a gift. Hope this helps.

    Depending on your price range, what about a canvas of him? You can get small ones.
    Or even a nice photo frame with an appropriate poem.

    Depending on your budget, how about a piece of jewellery (a pendant or charm if she has a bracelet) with her baby's birth stone on it?

    I think the book depends on how you think she'll take it.

    I agree probably knowing you are thinking of her and being there for her is a gift in itself

    A book might be a reminder of what she doesn't have - I think it's very hit or miss and I wouldn't risk it being an ok gift for the fact it could be so wrong!

    I have seen some gorgeous sunrise pictures - you could get her one from the day the baby was born?

    I'd be leaning towards something like the jewellery item, or maybe even a small diary?
    Although if she has a memry box some other trinket might be ok, but it does become very personal.

    What a lovely friend you are. I'm not sure about the book either. My first thought was flowers. Something to acknowledge the day, and let her know you are thinking of her and there for her.
