It’s always awful to hear that someone you know has lost a loved one. You want to do whatever you can to support them during this time, but you know there’s nothing you can really do to take their pain away. One thing you can do, however, is sending a gift to the family at the funeral homes in Baltimore, MD. The gift can remind them that you are there to support them and that they have lots of people in their life rallying around them and loving them, despite the hard loss. Here are a few gifts you might consider sending their way.
Flowers and plants are the most common sympathy gift. Flowers are a very nice gift because they show your support and sympathy and they can be used as a beautiful decoration at the funeral home for the services they are having for their family member. Plants are a nice option as well because your friend can take them home with them, remember you and their loved ones every time they care for the plant. Plus, flowers die off, but the plant will stick around, with any luck.
You could always just send a sympathy card with some money in it. If your friend’s family doesn’t have what they need to cover the services, the money is highly welcomed. They can use it to help pay for what they wanted to do for their loved ones. Or, if they already have that covered, they can donate the money to a charity that their loved one support in their honor. Either way, it’s a nice way to show your support to the family.
You know your friend well and you could create a customized gift basket for them to send to the funeral home. Or, you can get something they can share like an edible arrangement filled with fruit. Place relaxing items in the gift basket so they can pamper themselves while they are grieving. Consider things like bubble bath, chapstick, a book from their favorite author, and maybe even gift cards to places they like to eat. You are showing how much you care when you personalize and customize a gift in just the right ways.
