What To Know When Choosing Gifts For Funeral Service

Flowers have been the traditional gift purchased to express condolences, but creativity and greater openness have allowed other gifts for funeral services to gain ground. Find out what you can present to your grieving loved ones and learn how to find the ideal choice.

Check the obituary or postings at the funeral home for directions from the family regarding in lieu of flowers gifts. In many cases a particular charity or organization has been designated to receive financial gifts from fellow grievers. This can be a wonderful way to show support and honor the deceased with a lasting gift.

Consider supporting the grievers with a gift of food. Prepared meals, restaurant gift cards and snacks on hand help the family to make it through the difficult initial grieving time. This can be a one-time gift or an ongoing blessing, depending on the type of food. Fill their freezer with nutritious options and always keep allergies and tastes in mind. Be sure to include instructions for storage and reheating.

Lasting memorials offer another touching gift option. Plant a tree, create a garden or place a park bench in a special location in honor of the deceased. Consider a local park or traditional vacation spot. Have a picture taken of the memorial for presentation to the family or take them to the location for a time of rest and reflection.

Memories become incredibly precious after the passing of a loved one and photographs capture memories well. Frame a photograph of the deceased or a picture of a location special to the grieving family. You may also consider having a photograph painted or sketched. Have the picture mounted in an attractive frame and ready to hang.

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.

Choose an alternative to flowers and show your support to grieving families with one of these funeral gift ideas.
