One of the most common questions I get asked as a mother who has walked through miscarriage and infant loss is: “What gifts do you recommend for a grieving mother?” This is why I created the Gift Guide feature here on The Morning — to help friends and family members give meaningful gifts and to give you, grieving mothers, unique and creative ideas for honoring your baby.
Today I’m sharing a few gift ideas from one of the loveliest jewelry companies, GLDN. Their designs are unique, modern and with the perfect amount of personalization available.
