    Default A gift?

    Ladies, I'm lucky enough to have never experienced a miscarriage, but my good friend recently has, and I was wondering, what are the general thoughts on a gift like those pieces of jewellery?

    Yay or nay?

    She lives in NZ so needs to be one thing small that I can post to her.

    Or what else is a suitable gift?

    My mum bought me this after we lost our bub at 21 weeks. I love it and wear it all the time, she bought it from lily stan hand stamped jewelry. My dig also sent me one of those willow tree ornaments of an angel.

    Such a lovely thoughtful idea xx

    That's nice! Only thing is I'm not sure what they called their little one or the date to put on

    yep

    a small gift is a way of showing your friend that you are thinking of her and appreciate the difficulties ... while not intruding or talking if she isnt ready to yet.

    Doesn't have to be about the baby. My friend sent me a gift when I had my miscarriage, it was some little inspirational thing and it was just nice to be thought of.

    Doesnt have to be a name or date you could just put a beautiful short saying.... something along the lines of "forever in my heart" etc
