Gift after loss of a baby

Someone I know has just recently lost her baby at 20 weeks. I'm not close to them at all, just an acquaintance, but I would like to get her a gift. Any suggestions about what would be appropriate?

When my baby was still born the neighbours bought me a bunch of beautiful dried flowers and I thought that was very thoughtful because fresh flowers wouldn't have been appropriate since it wasn't a joyous occasion however dried flowers are beautiful and hold longer too :)

Maybe a willow tree figurine? I don't know how much they are, so it just depends in your budget.
