A Sympathy gift is a difficult gift to present to a friend or family who has just lost their loved

person. Choosing a sympathy gift can be daunting.  A gift is a good way of showing that you are concerned and care for them.

When selecting a gift, you should choose one that helps them get through the difficult times and honors their loved ones.  It lets them know that they are not alone, and you will always be there to show love and support them.

We put together these gift ideas we know would provide comfort for your person. They would also pass across the right message.

Top10 Sympathy Gift Ideas to Consider

  1. Gift Baskets: Baskets that contain the person’s favorites, such as fruits, chocolate, snacks, and more, are great sympathy gifts. You can also opt for personal care items such as bath supplies, scented candles, and essential oils. This sends a message that you care about their health and well-being.
  2. Personalized Jewelry: A personalized piece of jewelry that includes the deceased’s name or initial favorite quotes makes good gifts. The jewelry serves as a reminder of the loss of a loved one.
  3. Flowers: Beautiful flowers displayed at the funeral are a great choice. You can also send them to the deceased’s residence or their family.    
  4. Handwritten Letters: Thoughtfully write your condolences and comforting words to the person in grief. You can also include your thoughts about the person that passed away.
  5. Meal Packages: When a person is in grief, it is difficult for them to keep up with meals and eat nourishing foods at that period. A meal provides comfort at times like this. You can present it in person or have it delivered to them.
  6. Journal: A journal fits perfectly as a gift. With that, they can write down their feelings and memories that matter to them. It aids their healing process and helps them feel closer to their loved one who passed away.
  7. Picture Book: You can collect pictures of a loved one from albums and social media and put them together in a book. This is another thoughtful gift. They can keep the memory of their beloved close to them with this.
  8. Custom Portrait: Take a photograph of the loved  one and have an artist make a portrait of it. This gift would be loved for a long time.
  9. Garden Stone: A garden stone makes a great comfort gift.
  10. Memory Candle: You can gift a candle with a personalized message on the candle jar. The scent can also be personalized to the deceased favorite scent.
