Memorial and Sympathy Gifts
Sympathy gift giving can be very confusing and it is hard to know what to say or do when you’ve lost someone close or someone you care about is grieving. This can be a very trying period in people’s lives and gift of sympathy simply delivers the message “Someone is thinking about you” and helps to acknowledge their grief. Showing your support and sympathy does not have to be difficult, give a gift from the heart! Understand how significant the loss of a loved one can be, the memorial gifts are each made with care because we know how much they mean to you.
During mourning or grief, it can be very comforting to know that people are thinking of you. When the family specifically requests no flowers, a small thoughtful gift can be appropriate. When giving food or food baskets, another very popular gift choice, just keep in mind any dietary restrictions or preferences. Depending on your relationship to the deceased and family, we have the sympathy gifts for these trying times.
From traditional gift like a beautiful flower arrangement to a carefully curated gift basket, sending the right sympathy gift can be difficult. Forgo the flowers that will wilt and die off within a couple of days and send a custom memorial canvas that can be displayed at the memorial/funeral service as well as displayed at home for years to come. If you were particularly close to the grieving individual or deceased a personalized canvas can be a very meaningful and thoughtful gift, where they can hold important photos and keepsakes together and in a safe place.
Whatever the gift item may be, it is really the sentiment and meaning behind the gift that counts the most. A memorial gift is something that can be used and kept for years after the loss to commemorate and remember the life of the individual. It also can be a heartfelt gesture of sympathy letting them know that they are not alone during this hard time.
