If you have a friend or family member who is grieving the loss of their spouse, you know how heartbreaking it can be. As a friend, you want to support them and bring them a little comfort but you may be unsure as to how to do so. While the most common way to express your condolences is by sending sympathy flowers, you may feel compelled to send something more. In this case, directors of funeral homes in Tualatin, OR. have these ideas.
First, let’s talk a little about when you should send the gift to the widow(er). Many people may choose to send something as soon as they hear about the passing of the spouse. Other times you could send a meaningful gift would be on a day such as their wedding anniversary or their spouse’s birthday.
Although there are many things you can send, what you ultimately decide will depend on your relationship with this person as well as what you think they may need or appreciate the most. Below we have included several ideas for sympathy gifts as well as ideas you could do for other occasions down the line such as wedding anniversaries or other special days the couple shared.
While nothing you send will take away the pain your friend or family member is feeling, it will let them remember that they are loved and supported and not alone in this difficult time. Whatever you decide to send or offer will be appreciated.
