Losing a loved one is never easy. These are people we build our whole lives around in one way or another, and to suddenly have them gone is always tragic.
This is where memorials come from. These are meaningful, sometimes romantic ways to proclaim our love for these important people and can help us in the process of moving on. But what do you get for someone in the throes of mourning, when that gift needs to be thoughtful, meaningful, and, most of all, effective?
Good question. Join us today as we bring you three of the best funeral gifts, and find that special something that shows just how much you care.
A Heartfelt Memorial Sign
There are certain things we all go through when losing a loved one. Feelings of loss, disappointment, and confusion. It’s a difficult process for most of us, and everybody deals with it in different ways.
You might want to consider giving the person involved some affirmation in the form of a custom memorial placard or sign. Wooden signs or engraved stones with “I’ll hold you in my heart until I can hold you in heaven,” or “When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure,” can make a world of difference.
Planting a tree in memorial of someone is easier than you might expect. This is a once-off gift that grows over time into a loving and lifelong memorable gift. Bamboos, Spruce, Pine or any other breed of tree is a personal and thoughtful way to say you care.
As an optional extra, a new development in recent years is memorial trees grown from fertilizer mixed the ashes of a loved one. Ask your cremation agent if they provide this service, or if they can recommend someone who does, and you’ll incorporate your loved one into a tree that, with any luck, will last a lifetime.
Cremations typically end with one of two very specific traditions: either preserving the ashes in your home or a mausoleum or scattering them somewhere meaningful to you or the deceased. But what if there was another way?
Cremation jewelry incorporates a small amount of the deceased’s cremated ashes into a wearable item so that they can be kept close to the wearer forever. Available as necklaces, bracelets, rings, or earrings, these attractive pieces of jewelry are meaningful funeral gifts that help you memorialize your loved one.
