Keepsake for a baby girl?

Hi ladies

Am very excited to be posting in the parenting bit! For those who don't know me I finally had twins on 30th August after five cycles, unfortunately however I contracted pre eclampsia and they had to be delivered at 24 weeks :( we lost one little girl but our other little girl Daniella is now over ten weeks old and doing well although she is still in hospital and very little (3lb 5!) at the moment.

My nan (88 years old and very lovely) wants to buy something for Daniella as a keepsake - as she won't be around to see all of her childhood and teenage years - yes I know a bit morbid but true I suppose bless her! She asked me to think about what we'd like but I have no ideas - other than maybe jewellery but then how do I choose something Daniella would like...

Just wondered if any of you had ideas or were given anything in a similar situation? Thanks in advance!

What about a small thing for now like a baby bangle and maybe something for a wee bit older like a necklace, or how about a photo album with lots of pics of your dd with your gran or a family tree type thing? Also my gran who is also 88 managed to make me two christening shawls, I used one for ds and put it in a keepsake box and I put the other one aside just incase I have another one and my
Gran isn't around or isn't able to make a second one, it's such a small thing that my ds won't appreciate until much later in life I suppose.
I no your dd is very small at the mo but could you do a family photo shoot once she's a wee bit bigger/older?

Will get my thinking cap on for you

Congratulations on dd and so sorry for your little angel

A necklace would be a lovely idea. Maybe best is to choose a very plain but elegant silver or gold necklace with a small pendant. It could be a letter 'D' for Daniella. If she prefers plain elegant later she can just wear it as it is, or if she is a bit more extravagant she can wear it together with whatever other necklace she likes.

It does not really matter what she chooses in the end. I had a keepsake necklace from my nan. Sadly it was from some strange orange stones I don't like so I don't wear it but I will never forget it and love that it is from her to me. It was one of her own necklaces so that makes it even more valuable for me.

So sorry you lost a twin. I am a once premature twin myself (28 weeks) and my heart aches for all twinless twins. Glad she is doing well. Will she be home for Christmas?

Hi Rb, firstly :congrats: on your little girls and your journey so far, sorry to hear one is a wee angel, but I'm sure she looking over her sister and giving her lots of fight. Xx

I think it's a lovely gesture of your nan, I know death is a morbid subject but for someone who's lost a lot of family it's practical and it's a treasure to have something of a special family member. May be suggest to your nan to create a memory box for you to share with your DD as she is growing up. It can have a letter from your nan, photos of you and your nan, you your mum/dad, nan and DD to show DD her heritage and a gift either a piece of jewellery or a charm bracelet pandora or Thomas sabo, you don't need lots of charms just a couple that your nan could choose with a meaning she wishes for Daniella when she grows up, like faith hope and love or something?

I too hope your precious baby girl is home for Christmas blowkiss
