The holidays are a time for celebrating the friends and family that have enriched our lives. But the holidays are also a time for memories, and these memories can be both joyful and painful for someone who is coping with the loss of a loved one. This holiday season, Everlife Memorials offers unique gift ideas that help to memorialize the friends and family members who are no longer with us. Necklaces, flag cases, and other keepsakes make tasteful and respectful gifts for someone in need of a little comfort during the holidays.
Sympathy gifts are a wonderful way to turn a holiday gift into a message of caring and support for a grieving friend or relative. Everlife's most popular sympathy gifts are its line of cremation jewelry. The beautiful pendants range in price from under $100 to over $1000 and are available in a variety of shapes, including hearts, crosses, and animals. The pendants are hollow and can be filled with ashes, a small lock of hair, or other small remembrances of a lost loved one. The necklaces are available in brass, sterling silver, pewter, and bronze - some of the jewelry is even finished in 14 carat gold and adorned with precious stones like diamonds or pearls.
"Cremation jewelry is a way to keep your loved one close to your heart," said Joseph McCabe, president of Everlife Memorials. "People give the jewelry as a remembrance keepsake to help loved ones deal with their loss during the holidays."
Many keepsake jewelry items can be personalized with traditional names and dates or even digital photo engraving, allowing the wearer to keep a loved one's image with them at all times.
For children, dealing with a loss can be especially difficult. Kids have a hard time processing and understanding death, and often struggle to understand what has happened to a loved one who is not around anymore. A keepsake teddy bear is a wonderful sympathy gift for a young person dealing with loss. Teddy bears, which have long been a standard holiday gift for children, become special keepsakes to serve as a reminder of a loved one who has passed away. The keepsake teddy bear has a special compartment near his heart containing a 14 carat gold heart-shaped locket which can hold a small memento of a lost loved one.
Sympathy gifts can also serve as patriotic remembrances for families whose loved ones have served in the military. Everlife Memorials offers a wide selection of flag cases that allow the family of a veteran to proudly display a burial flag. The flag cases are made in America and feature high-quality wood and display glass. They make wonderful holiday gifts that allow a family to proudly display their loved one's flag. Many flag cases are available with brass plates which can be engraved with a name, date, and branch of the military.
It is never easy to cope with the loss of a loved one. But, this holiday season you can show support for a grieving friend or family member with a sympathy gift that they will cherish for years.
Everlife Memorials has a reputation for providing caring and sympathetic support for families dealing with the loss of someone they love.
