What is an Appropriate Sympathy Gift?

When a friend or loved one is grieving, it is hard to know what to say or how to show your support. When you want to provide comfort and support and show your concern for a family member, a friend, or an associate, a personalized gift is always an ideal choice. The best gifts are those given and chosen from the heart. It says that you really care and have taken the time to think about the time after the initial grief of losing a loved one ... during the alone and lonely times.

Here is a list of some elegant and comforting gifts, that are simple and appropriate expressions of sympathy for the family and are alternatives to the standard flowers ...

? Angel Painting ... personalized

? Jewelry ... pendant or bracelet

? Music CD

? Book of Poems or poem written by you

? Gift Basket personalized to the family

? Photo Album or Scrapbook of good times shared

? Plant a Tree

? Favorite Photograph Framed

? Memorial Garden Stepping Stone or Bench

? Angel Suncatcher

? Journal for Memories

? Angel Candle and Votive Holder

? Memory Box

? Table Fountain

? Bible or Rosary

Remember, there are no words when someone has experienced the loss of a loved one and when flowers aren't enough to express your caring ... an elegant way to comfort the heart ...personalize it for the family or person you want to bring comfort to ... a continuing expression of love and support with loving thoughts in sympathy ...

In the following weeks be sure and stay in touch with the family or individual by making personal contact with them. Plan a trip or outing if the relationship is a close one. The gift of continual caring and friendship is always appropriate and well received if given from the heart. Sometimes it is the intangible gift that is most appropriate and lasting.
