What To Give As A Sympathy Gift? January 22, 2016 12:00
When someone passes away it's hard to know what to say to the person that's bereaved. We like to show our support to that person, by sending a card or a bunch of flowers, but ideally we'd like to do more. The disadvantage, of course, with flowers is that they soon wither away and don't provide any lasting memory of the person who has died. Many people even request that no flowers are brought to the funeral, so what do you give in that situation?
Our personalised candles and frames offer the opportunity to give a lasting gift to someone who has lost a loved one. All of our products can be adapted to include a name, date, or a choice of colours. Instead of flowers, give a sympathy gift which will last forever.
Candles are traditionally used during funerals in many religious and non-religious services. They can be placed around the casket; lit during rituals within the church or place of worship; or can be added to the burial site along with flowers and other decorations. Our pillar candles can have the deceased's name written on it, which can then either be used during the funeral, or given as a gift to the bereaved family as a permanent decoration for their home.
As well as larger candles, we also sell packs of tea light candles, which can be personalised with a name or date. These can be used in ceremonies where each member of the congregation lights a candle of remembrance. This might be inside a place of worship, or outdoors, for example when floating candles are placed in the river. You could also give individual tealights to all of the bereaved family members, so that each of them has a small token of your sympathy.
Our personalised photo frames can be decorated with a name, date, or a chosen selection of colours, to make a truly personal sympathy gift for the bereaved family. Add a photograph yourself, or leave it empty, allowing the family to choose their own favourite photograph of their loved one. This really is the ideal sympathy gift as it creates a lasting memory and can be appreciated for years to come.
We have a range of different products to suit all occasions, and you can view the full collection here. All of our items can be personalised with a name or initial, date, or a personal message. You can also choose your own colours to match your home.
