What gift to give to parents of preemies

I have been asked several times on what the best gift idea is for someone who just gave birth to a premature infant, especially when the the prognosis is unknown.  Only a few people gave me baby clothes when the twins were born, and I remember my mother being pessimistic about their future saying, “How awful if you have to return everything.”

The best gifts I received were hand-written notes saying we were in their prayers along with flowers.  I mostly received fresh flowers, but I think potted flowers and plants would be nice for the parents to plant in window boxes for remembrance.
