What You Should Learn When Selecting Funeral Gifts

Creativity and modern ideas combine to move beyond the traditional flowers as gifts for funeral services, branching into a host of original and unique sentiments. Choose something that reflects your relationship with the deceased and the grieving family and show your support with one of these alternative gifts.

You may find suggestions for In lieu of flowers gifts posted by the family. Ask at the funeral home or read through the obituary to get direction on charitable donations and other financial gifts. Show your support to the designated organization and present a card to the grieving family.

Grieving families become easily run down before, during and after the funeral services. Consider providing them with food to allow more space to grieve or simply recuperate. If preparing hot meals or baked goods is not possible, purchase gift cards from their favorite restaurants or pick up prepared food from the grocery store. Take any allergies and preferences into consideration before dropping off the food and leave detailed instructions for reheating and storage.

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.

Look through your collection of photographs to find a unique picture. Have the photo specially framed or hire an artist to reproduce the scene as a painting. This provides the grieving family with a lasting memory both of the deceased and your support and love.

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.

There are many funeral gifts to consider besides the traditional flowers. Be creative and opt for an alternative if it suits you and the grieving family.
