Facts To Learn When Concerning Funeral Gifts

Although flowers remain the most popular gifts for funeral services, many people have become more creative and expanded beyond cut bouquets. Discover what other items and sentiments you can present to the grieving family and show your support.

Many families now provide a prompt to friends and fellow grievers on what to give in lieu of flowers. Often posted at the funeral home or in the obituary, charitable causes, trust funds and other avenues for donation provide the ideal way to express support and honor your loved one.

Funerals and visitations require enormous amounts of time and emotional energy, leaving grieving families with little time for the basics. Sometimes a hot meal or restaurant gift card is the most welcome gift you could give and provides the family with help and nourishment. Find out any food allergies or preferences beforehand and mark all homemade food well with storage and cooking directions.

Think about purchasing a long lasting gift in honor of the deceased and providing the grieving family with a place to rest and remember. Plant a tree in their backyard or have a bench or memorial stone placed in a nearby park or favorite vacation spot. You can present the family with a picture of the item or take them there later on.

Photographs and art allow the grieving family to refresh their memories and you may have access to unique photos and visual memories. Spend the time to sort through your photographs and have a special shot or collection of shots framed to present to the grieving family. Hiring an artist to paint or pencil sketch the photo is also a nice gesture.

Offers of time and service offer an affordable option for condolences. Consider taking on household tasks or odd jobs for the grieving family. Handling lawn maintenance, house and auto repairs, babysitting, cleaning and many other regular tasks allow the family more time to heal. Your generosity will be remembered long after the task has been completed.

Think about presenting grievers with sentiments other than flowers, or supplement the traditional condolence with one of these creative options to express your love and support.
