Your presence, support, and companionship are the best gifts you can give to a grieving friend. But sometimes gift items can also offer some comfort and express your condolences. At The Jerry Spears Company, we encourage people to gift practical and useful things to the grieving family. Here are some suggestions that can help:
1. Traditional Gifts
Traditional gifts like a basket full of comfort food are a great choice. You can place fresh fruits, chocolates, cheeses, bread, etc., in the basket. This serves two purposes; the food items don't require much preparation, and they're tempting to eat. Grieving individuals are prone to skipping meals and neglecting their health. A comfort food basket will ensure they always have something to munch on.
2. Gift Certificates for Household Services
The last thing a grieving individual wants is to clean their home and maintain their surroundings. Many let their homes fall into a state of disarray, and that doesn't help the healing process. Gift certificates for cleaning, housekeeping, meal prep, and other such services can be very helpful in this difficult time. They take the burden off your friend's shoulder and also help keep their environment in order.
3. Spa and Wellness Gift Certificates
Grieving can take its toll on a person's body. It's not uncommon for people to feel stressed out, tired, and sore after the funeral and burial services are complete. This is especially true for people who are responsible for the care and comfort of other family members like children and the elderly. A spa or wellness gift certificate will encourage them to take a break and focus on themselves every once in a while.
