A picture frame. I wish someone had given me one. Even if they never display it, they can be comforted by it because they will never forget what his little hands looked like or the way he looked while they held him (more for the parents). Maybe a little tiny teddy bear, ever so soft.

I got a beautiful teddy bear for friends who had to terminate a pregnancy, i thought they could choose either to keep it or send it with their precious boy. So sad :(

I would go with something that the parents could use to remember their precious child. Do they have a plaster casting of his hands and feet? You could name a star for him. Or there is a lot of rememberance jewlery out there. Good luck, I'm sure this situation can't be easy.
