    7 Ways to Help You Cope with Grief: Memory Boxes

    Everyone experiences grief in their own way. There are many different ways to cope with the loss of a loved one, but not all of them deal specifically with memories. For some people, it is more difficult than others to remember someone who has passed away because they did not have photos or other tangible items that remind them of this person.

    This is where memory boxes can help. A memory box can be used for anything from mementos like photos and trinkets to more practical items like clothes and documents.

    Read on to see the 7 ways you can use a memory box to help you cope with your grief.

    Personalising Bereavement Gifts: A Touch of Thoughtfulness

    Personalising a bereavement gift adds a layer of heartfelt thoughtfulness, making it a profound expression of compassion and empathy. It transforms a simple gesture into a lasting memory, offering solace and comfort to those in mourning.

    Here's how personalisation can deepen the impact of your sympathy gift:
    • Personalise with Names or Dates: Adding the name of the departed or significant dates on a gift can turn it into a cherished keepsake, a gentle reminder of the person's life and the moments shared. 
    • Include a Personal Message: A customised message conveys your feelings and support in a way that's uniquely personal. Whether it's a quote, a comforting thought, or a few words of love, it can provide great comfort during difficult times. 
    • Choose Meaningful Symbols or Images: Incorporating symbols or images that hold special significance to the bereaved or reflect the personality of the departed can make your gift truly resonate on a personal level. 
    • Select Custom Artwork or Designs: Art has a unique way of expressing what words cannot. A piece of custom artwork or a design that holds special meaning can be a powerful way to evoke memories and offer comfort. 
    Personalisation shows that you've put thought and care into choosing a way to express your sympathy. It acknowledges the individuality of the person who has passed and honours the deep impact they've had on the lives of others. In a time of loss, a personalised sympathy gift can be a beacon of light, offering a tangible connection to cherished memories and a source of comfort in the journey of grief.

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

    What’s an appropriate bereavement gift?

    An appropriate bereavement gift is one that conveys your condolences and offers comfort to the bereaved. Common choices include memorial keepsakes, custom jewellery, or items that serve as a gentle reminder of the loved one.

    When should I send a bereavement gift?

    It's thoughtful to send a bereavement gift upon hearing of the loss, but it's also considerate to send a gift around the time of the funeral service or shortly after, to let the bereaved know you're thinking of them during this difficult period.

    Can I send a bereavement gift if I can't attend the funeral?

    Yes, sending a bereavement gift is a meaningful way to show you care, even if you can't be there in person. It can be delivered directly to the bereaved's home or the funeral home, depending on the situation.

    How do I write a message for a bereavement gift?

    Keep your message short and sincere. Express your condolences, offer support, and if you knew the deceased, a brief, fond memory can be comforting. “I’m so sorry for your loss” is a simple and always appropriate message.

    Is it okay to send a bereavement gift weeks after the loss?

    Absolutely. Grief doesn't adhere to a timeline, and a bereavement gift sent weeks or even months later can be a comforting gesture, showing that you haven’t forgotten about their loss or their pain.
    What if I don’t know the bereaved very well?
    A bereavement card with a heartfelt message is a thoughtful gesture even if you didn’t know the bereaved well. If you wish to do more, consider a donation to a charity in memory of the deceased, if appropriate.
    Can I personalise any gift for bereavement?
    While many gifts can be personalised, it’s important to choose items that are respectful and considerate of the mourning process. Personalised memorial stones, engraved photo frames, or customised candles are all fitting choices.
    What is a good group bereavement gift idea?
    A great group bereavement gift could be something substantial that the bereaved wouldn't purchase for themselves, such as a memorial bench, a high-end piece of jewelry, or a subscription to a support service aligned with their needs.
    Is it thoughtful to include the bereaved's family in the gift?
    Including the bereaved's family in the gift, especially if it's something that can be enjoyed together, like a family portrait session or a memory book, can be a thoughtful touch that recognises the shared loss and support.
    How do I choose a bereavement gift for someone of a different faith or cultural background?
    Research or ask about specific customs and preferences related to bereavement in their culture or religion. When in doubt, a heartfelt sympathy card or a donation to a charity important to the family can be universally thoughtful gestures.
    Is it appropriate to include a message asking if the bereaved needs anything?
    Yes, offering your support and asking if there's anything specific they need can be very comforting. However, make sure your offer is genuine and be prepared to follow through if they reach out.
    Can a bereavement gift be too extravagant?
    Yes, overly extravagant gifts might not be appropriate for a somber occasion like bereavement. Aim for simplicity and thoughtfulness to convey your message of condolence and support.
    What’s the best way to deliver a bereavement gift?
    If possible, delivering the gift in person with a gentle demeanor reflects genuine care. If you're unable to deliver it personally, sending it through a delivery service with a note specifying it's a sympathy gift is also thoughtful.
    Are digital or virtual bereavement gifts acceptable?
    In today's digital age, sending a virtual gift or message can still be meaningful, especially if distance or circumstances prevent physical presence. Consider virtual flowers, an e-card, or organising a donation pool with others to a cause close to the bereaved's heart.
    How can I ensure my bereavement gift is received well?
    Choose gifts with the recipient's preferences and sensitivities in mind. A brief, compassionate message accompanying the gift can also help convey your intentions respectfully.
    Is it okay to send a bereavement gift to someone I haven’t spoken to in a long time?
    Yes, reaching out during a time of loss can bridge gaps and show that, regardless of time or distance, you care. It’s a gesture that many will appreciate deeply.
