Special items that either represent
or resemble your baby

Especially Regarding Pictures

Especially for Fathers

  • Birth Verse (bracelets and keyrings)
  • The jewelry links at our Farewell Celebrations section has jewelry ideas that can be converted to pendants, key chains, or “dog tag” style items, that can include either the name of the baby or the baby’s birth stone.
  • A special tattoo.
  • Naming a star after your baby, and you could buy him a telescope as well.
  • A special stone for the yard or as a keepsake in the house: Treasure Beans or Living Rocks or Alphabet Pebbles.
  • Baby Boards by Misty are durable and simple
  • Stillbirthday Fathers may be uncomfortable with the idea of keeping a momento of the baby, but would like to honor his baby in some way.  Go to our online shop, where you can access things like our logo coffee mugs and HeBrews Coffee.  You can order a bag of coffee for him to enjoy, and add the “contribute to stillbirthday” option, which adds $1 to your order, to help support stillbirthday.


Especially for Siblings
