Flowers are the traditional gift to give on someone's death but marking a bereavement that way isn't right for everyone. People grieve in many different ways so it's completely appropriate that there are many different gift options to buy someone as a bereavement gift.
If flowers are asked for or they feel right to you, a traditional wreath or a thoughtful Sympathy bouquet of mainly white flowers with just a hint of colour will make lovely gifts. However, for those who have an aversion to giving flowers after a loss there are alternatives.
You'll find great ideas as bereavement gifts at online gift hamper providers such as Gift Barn. One of the most difficult things for people when they are dealing with the death of a family member is taking care of themselves. Gift Barn's Tea and coffee gift box with its comforting collection of quality Bica Sail Rock Coffee, variety of teas Glazed Fruit Cake and other snacks is a great example of a thoughtful, practical sympathy gift at a difficult time.
If there are children affected by the loss, thinking of them with an appropriate gift is a wonderful thing to do. Depending on the age and interests of the children, a small teddy or stuffed toy to cuddle is one suggestion or a small gift box of treats will also let them know they haven't been forgotten.
Gift Barn also offer a Large Port and Treats gift box. It's the perfect gift for friends or family who might wish to mark their loss with a special toast, a chance to share thoughts and memories of their loved one.
