Spa-Inspired Gift Boxes
To help your loved one feel better, there are miscarriage gift boxes available on Etsy, many of which are spa-inspired. The lavender gift box from Eryns Home and Gifts has four options that can each be personalized. One of the options is “Deluxe Lavender,” which features a lavender eye pillow, essential oils, a bath bomb, a soy candle, floral bath soak, and lip balm.
MEMGIFT on Amazon offers memorial bracelets with an engraved secret message. Their bracelets read, “Your wings were ready but my heart was not.” These sympathy bracelets are made with hypoallergenic materials. They are also nickel-free and lead-free. There are also options for mom, dad, brother, sister, and grandparents.
A Baby Loss Keepsake
Memorialize a lost pregnancy with this mother and baby portrait. This hand-drawn custom digital portrait can be a perfect gift to help give your loved one some peace.
Candles are also a great addition to a care package, like this special Trost LICHT baby loss candle.
Another great addition would be this candle holder from The Cherished Company that can also be a decorative jar. It features a quote from Gandhi that reads, “There are no goodbyes for us. Wherever you are, you will always be in my heart.”
A thoughtful care package will let your friend know you are thinking of her. And it might just help lift her spirits a little.
Gifts are great for mom because a miscarriage can be the hardest on her. But a pregnancy loss also affects other members of the family. Don’t forget to check in with the father and siblings, when necessary. Simply make sure they are doing okay. And offer your services if they need some help while they recover.
You can offer to do the laundry, go grocery shopping, run errands, and take the other kids to school. Helping with some of the daily responsibilities for a few days can be a huge help while mom and dad are processing their grief.
As the weeks and months go by, don’t forget to check in with your loved one to see how they are doing. This is especially important around the time the baby would have been due. Consider taking your friend out to lunch or sending a card to acknowledge the loss and let your friend know that she’s in your thoughts.
