Some Traditional Memorial Presents

The passing of a loved one is never a pleasant experience, even if their passing relieved their suffering. Giving those who are suffering the loss of a loved one memorial jewelry or other memorial gifts is a gesture that is appreciated, but nothing can make the pain go away completely. Loved ones of those who passed away still feel the pain and sadness that accompanies that passing. Realizing that they will no longer be a part of our physical life brings forth hurt feelings that only time can help soothe.

Some traditional memorial presents include items such as memorial rings, engraved plaques and other keepsakes, gift baskets with food, religious items, framed poems, photo albums, pies, cakes, music boxes, and other small items. Memorial jewelry is among the most popular of bereavement gifts. Whatever you choose, it is sure to be appreciated.

Friends and family of the deceased are proud to sport memorial gifts like personalized memorial rings because it is a piece of jewelry they can wear daily to keep a loved one’s memory fresh in their mind at all times. Every time they put on the ring, they will think of the good times they had with the person who passed away. Memorial presents like this can be very therapeutic and actively assist the healing process.

Unconventional memorial gifts can work well, too. Sometimes a gift that cheers them up or makes them laugh is what is called for. Laughter is very therapeutic, especially when someone is sad. Also, gifts that you have to pay for aren’t always the best choice. Sometimes simply talking to those who experienced a loss or offering to talk anytime they need a listening ear is the best gift to give. Gifts don’t have to be expensive or traditional to be effective and appreciated.

Whatever route you choose to pursue in terms of giving memorial presents, remember that it must come from the heart to truly be considered a bereavement gift. The loss of a loved one is a highly emotional time for all parties involved and a thoughtful gift is the only gift that should be given during this extremely sensitive time.

Pour your heart and soul into the gift, otherwise just give a simple sympathy card if you aren’t sure. Sometimes a simple card really is the best gift if you aren’t an immediate family member of the person who passed away.
