Finding the perfect unique remembrance gifts for that heart-wrenching and emotional time in life when a loved one is lost can be terribly confusing. For me, the appropriate gift will hold an emotional value long after the gift is given. But, in situations where unique remembrance gifts are called for, I find that I like to really ponder a few aspects first: who is the lost loved one? Who is the gift for? How can I capture the meaning of a life in one token item?
It still takes me some good digging to find a unique remembrance gift and in an effort to make times like this easier, I have pulled together some great unique remembrance gifts to share with you for when that moment comes along. Hopefully, this list will prepare you so that you can spend more time focusing on comforting the person that is mourning, rather than searching for a gift.
I can’t think of anything more memorable than My Day Registry to memorialize the life of a person. You can choose any day in time: their birthday, a favorite holiday, the day that they passed away, as long as it hasn’t been chosen already (because only one person can be registered on each day, according to the registry), and that becomes their own personalized day in time. There is an online profile dedicated just to them where you can post pictures and document their life and a certificate of authenticity to treasure and hang in a special place. Can you think of anything more memorable?
If you’ve ever lost a loved one, you know that cold feeling that you get in the funeral home and after the services. It can be the warmest day and yet everything seems to feel cold. Warm up the family of the lost loved one by giving them a Bereavement Throw or Blanket from Shirley Family Gifts. You will find gorgeous lighthouses, deer, angels, horses, poetry and more peaceful and calming artwork on these blankets.
For a female, a great gift from My Forever Child could be perfect. They have an array of jewelry to choose from that will elegantly memorialize a life lost. Some are simple, like the Wings of Comfort necklace and others come with a special message, like the Thinking of You Personalized Charm. They also have specific jewelry for someone who has lost twins or experienced miscarriage or infant loss.
Put a light to their name with a Memorial Peace Light. These lights are solar powered and created to light up when the sun has set and glow throughout the evening. You can choose from a couple of different crosses or go all the way with custom photo etching with their Laser Etched Peace Light; the etched images are unbelievably realistic.
The gift that you give in a time of mourning can become the most cherished and precious item in someone’s life. I hope that one of these unique remembrance gifts I have listed here will help you lighten someone’s heartache. It feels good to give someone a gift that brings peace of mind and properly recognized the friend, family member, or child that they lost.
