Keepsakes, Angels and Memorial Gifts are a collection of inspirational items that can bring comfort to anyone, and used in a variety of ways. This elegant assortment of items ranges from beautiful angel figurines that can be placed throughout the home and garden to heartwarming memorial keepsakes that will heal the heart in a time of grief, and even keepsake domes and funeral planning books. These items are not necessarily only memorial gifts, but can be heartwarming gifts for loved ones or even for yourself. With the large variety and selection available, this section has something to suite anyone’s taste or need.
Everyone, at one point or another, must experience the loss of a loved one. It is an unfortunate reality life, but while that may seem extremely sorrowful, there is a sense of comfort in that when we lose someone, we are not alone, and that here are others that can help us cope during a difficult time. In fact, grief support groups are now available, in which one can go and disclose their most honest feelings to others, without fearing offending someone else who is also experiencing the same loss. When trying to help those we know who have experienced a death, there is little that can be said to relieve their sense of loss or sadness. At times like these, actions speak louder than words. For example, bringing the family of the deceased food after their loss is an age old tradition and this simple act shows great compassion and kindness for a loved one. It is not necessarily traditional to bring a condolence gift, but it is also an act of kindness that will be greatly appreciated by the loved one nonetheless. That is not to say that the gift must be extravagant, instead it should be something that can help the person grieving through the difficult time. A prayer cross, angel comfort stone, or even a keepsake box in which they can store precious items of their lost loved one are all items that do not enforce a sense of loss, but rather bring inspiration and a sense of harmony to those they are presented to.
One of our more interesting items is the Tear Bottle, which is small, decorative bottle in which tears are collected. Tear bottles actually have reaches far back into history, and were even popular during the times of the Romans. They are present throughout our history in several different cultures, which employed them in different ways. In fact, it is only recent that these bottles are used for celebratory occasions such as weddings or graduations.
There are as many uses for these beautiful keepsakes as there are the keepsakes themselves. For example, a memorial teddy bear would be a beautiful gift for a child that is struggling with the loss of a loved one, as well as a parent who has suffered the unfortunate loss of a child. The comfort stones come in sets and can be handed out at memorial services to friends and family to gain comfort from, as well as birthday parties as tokens of affection. There are even beautiful ornaments that are made of pressed parchment and flower or plant seeds that can be buried as part of a service or celebration, to grow in honor of the event. On the other hand, the seasonal keepsake section is full of items that would make wonderful additions to any holiday celebration. The options are truly limitless.
"I ordered this urn and had it express shipped the week of Thanksgiving to arrive on Friday in California at my Dad's house. I flew in on Friday and the urn was delivered a couple of hours later. I opened the beautiful blue box to unveil the gorgeous pewter heart to hold a piece of my Dad for me forever. He will be placed in my casket along with our cremated pets. My Dad passed on Monday 11/28/11 and I took the urn on Tuesday to the funeral home. They kept my urn and then shipped it to my home here in Texas. Although this was a very tough time in my life, Memorials.com made it easy. I called and left a message in the evening and the next day, a customer service rep left me a message on my cell phone. I called back and their customer service rep answered all of my questions, took my order and accommodated my shipping needs. Using Memorials.com was a wonderful experience. I have already recommended this company and their website to my friends.
I also plan to look at future pet products when we need it. We have a few babies in boxes and 1 in an urn. My Dad will become part of the dearly departed that will be with us forever. I wish I knew about this website sooner, so I could have used my own urn instead of buying it through the cremation service. Thank you for helping me have a piece of my Dad forever! "
