When someone you know passes on there are a number of things you can do to honor their memory and sympathize with the family. First, you will want to attend any services they have for their loved one if at all possible. Second, you will probably want to send a card to share your condolences. Many people also want to share a gift of some kind to help comfort the family. There is a variety of options in terms of gifts for funeral homes, and if the funeral is being held at Heritage Funeral & Cremation Services, we provide many of those options to make it simple for you. Whether you want the gift to be delivered to the funeral service, or the family’s home or office, we can take care of it for you. Here are a few of the things we offer.
Flowers—for the home, the funeral, or the cemetery
Flowers are a standard and beautiful gift for a funeral as well as a lovely gesture. Some people like to give flowers to decorate the funeral home during the service while others like to leave some behind at the cemetery. There are also a variety of plants you can have sent right to your friend’s home so they can keep it and remember their loved one for even longer.
Food and gift baskets
Mourning is hard for anyone who goes through the process and it can be hard to find the time to make something to eat. Sending your friend a gift basket filled with fruit, sweets, or comfort foods will remind them that they have to care for themselves as well. It’s a thoughtful gesture to help them get the nourishment they need in an easy way during this difficult time.
Personalized memorial gifts
You want to help your friend remember their loved one in a special way and you can do that by creating something special through a memorial gift. You might get them a tribute blanket or something to place in their garden to remind them of their loved one.
Memorial jewelry options
There are also plenty of jewelry options if your friend likes to wear items like bracelets or something with a statement of faith on it to remind them of their loved one. If their loved one was cremated, there are also cremation jewelry options.
