Dogs Leave Pawprints On Our Hearts

Simply beautiful and comforting for those who are dealing with grief due to the loss of a precious pet.    Those who have loved a pet understand the loss, those who haven’t can’t begin to understand. I can relate.  My amazing dog, Kassie, passed away a couple of years ago, and it was really tough. The following was incredibly helpful to me:

 

Finding a gift, or a keepsake, after the loss of a pet, is also very difficult.  Locally, I was not able to find anything suitable… that’s when I searched the internet.  I found the following Pet Memorial Gifts ideas and now carry them at www.RememberMeGiftBoutique.com.

Beyond Sympathy Gifts: Helping Those Grieving

What is your initial thought when you learn that a family member or friend is dealing with the loss of a loved one?  Is it calling your local florist to send flowers?  Searching for the perfect Memorial Gift Ideas?  Do you struggle with what to say or do?

When my family was dealing with a traumatic death, the flowers, meals, and cards were generously flooding our home.  While we appreciated every gesture, there was one that stood out.  It wasn’t a monetary sympathy gift, a delicious meal, or a meaningful card.   It was simply an act of kindness… by a 16 year old high school student.

She appeared the day of my brother’s funeral.  We didn’t know her and had no idea of her connection with my brother.  She was just there.  People were gathering at our home prior to the funeral.  Meals were placed on the kitchen counter, half empty cups where scattered all over the house, and it was very chaotic, to say the least.  As we were leaving for the funeral, this young lady asked if she could stay behind to “clean up the mess”.  While we encouraged her to go to the funeral, she declined.

While we were mourning our loss, she was doing something different; something unexpected.  When we returned to our home, we were greeted by the smell of freshly brewed coffee.  All the casseroles were heated and placed, ever so beautifully, in our kitchen.  Every left behind cup was gone.  Each pillow was fluffed and placed warmly on our sofa.  The house was comforting and inviting.

The memory of this moment still stings my eyes.  As I look back on this day, I do not recall if she was told how much she was appreciated… if she truly understood the impact her act of compassion had our family.   Did her parents know what an amazing young lady they had raised?

How can we help those grieving?  Please share your stories to enlighten those who are searching for ways to help or words to say.

God Bless You!

Personalized Memorial Christmas Ornaments

The Christmas Holiday Season is usually a time of celebration and family traditions.  Unfortunately, for many grieving people, this time of year can be very difficult.   What our grieving friends and families need is our love and support, more than any monetary gift.  While we wish there is something we could do to ease their pain, just being there with a listening ear and loving arms is all that is required.

When we feel as though we would like to give a Memorial Gift to ease the pain, a suitable gift is usually difficult to find.  In this situation, it is not the cost of the gift that matters, it’s the thought and impact the gift will have to help them feel as though their loved one is close during the holidays.  Remember Me offers a great selection of inexpensive Personalized Memorial Christmas Ornaments just for that reason.

“Forever In Our Hearts” is a sentiment that expresses the feelings of those grieving.  We offer a few Personalized Memorial Ornaments with this popular saying:

Another popular and comforting sentiment is Christmas In Heaven.  We also offer a couple of ornaments with this saying:

We also carry a selection of Personalized Memorial Christmas Ornaments with the simple sentiment of “In Loving Memory”:

 Remember Me Gift Boutique offers a variety of Sympathy Gifts and Memorial Gift Ideas for those grieving during the holidays.  Please feel free to visit our website.  If you do not know what to give, please just contact us and we will find the perfect gift to express your sentiment keeping your budget in mind.  We truly desire to bring comfort to those who are grieving.

Memorial Gift Ideas Go Beyond Flowers

Memorial Gift Ideas Go Beyond Flowers

Flowers have been a beautiful and traditional sympathy gift idea and a common funeral gift for many years. In the past, this has been an affordable and convenient way to express your sympathy message. However, with the change in our economy, and the convenience of the internet, sympathy gift ideas go far beyond flowers.

RememberMeGiftBoutique.com seeks to comfort those grieving, due to the loss of a loved one or the loss of a pet, by offering gifts that will last far beyond the life of flowers. We have carefully and thoughtfully collected a wide variety of sympathy gift ideas that are sure to touch the hearts of those grieving and are often more affordable than sympathy flowers.

Rather than a floral arrangement, consider sending a Memory Tree to be planted in the loved one’s backyard. Adding a personal sympathy message to accompany the Memory Tree creates a beautiful sentiment that those grieving will certainly appreciate. After the Memory Tree is planted, many expand upon this idea by creating a memorial garden by adding personalized memorial garden stones, memorial benches or even personalized wind chimes. We truly value and recommend this idea as a comforting and lasting gift.

Flowers are not typically sent after the loss of a pet. Many struggle when trying to decide how to express their sympathy message to those who are dealing with grief due to this type of loss. One of the most popular sympathy gift ideas is our Pet Memorial Jewelry. Our customers have contacted us to let us know how much this gift meant to them and aided in the healing process. Our customer’s healing and comments are truly valued.

Many of our customers are not searching for funeral gifts, but for a personal memorial item that brings them comfort during their own grieving process. We carry many gifts, with this type of customer in mind, such as our Memorial Teddy Bears. This is our Favorite Sympathy Gifts idea. Creating a teddy bear from a lost loved one’s pajamas, Sunday dress, or favorite sweatshirt, is one of the most comforting ideas we can offer.

We hope to provide our customers with more than just sympathy gift ideas. RememberMeGiftBoutique.com also desires to be a valuable resource during the healing process with our daily inspiration and encouragement. We will continue to develop this important aspect of our business, simply because we care.
