    I can't say I've experienced a stillbirth, if it was me I'd probably get her a nice card and maybe a small item of jewellery like has been suggested. Hugs to your friend.

    I really like the book idea, but can understand why others mightn't.

    You know your friend - do you think she would like it as something that can always come with her no matter where she lives and be shared with future children or would it be too much of a knife to the heart every time she saw it?

    Grief can be so personal. I think that regardless of what you decide, it's lovely that you want to show her you care and you are thinking of her.

    If you really want to buy something to acknowledge the baby, how about a nice small trinket or figurine, something that mum can either place at the baby's burial site or if she's got a little memorial place at home.
    It's lovely that you're doing this for your friend.

    I lost a baby at 35 weeks, and honestly no one remembers her birthday unless i bring it up... Id be stoked just to get a card or some sort of acknowledgement of my baby.. But yes a book would have me thinking 'the thought is lovely, but honestly this is just a reminder that i dont have a baby to read the book to' ... If that makes sense?

    I like the suggestions of a trinket/figurine (my dad got me one of those willowtree figurines called 'angel of mine' and it is a woman holding a newborn which i treasure)... I also like the plant idea... And im not a plant person

    This ^^ - something that fruits of flowers this time of year.

    My sister bought her BF an small kumquat - which fruits at that same timeeach year - for her angle baby and they make a jars of jam each year together.
