Sympathy gift basket, Grief Basket, Grief, Grief gifting, -- My dear friend became a widow this week. We sent a laundry basket filled with common sense things to get her through the next week, and her sons were even impressed with the contents of this basket. Included in the basket were: paper pads, pens, mints, gum, chocolate, inspiring book, candy, individually wrapped tissues, throw blanket, thank you cards, stamps, candle, coffee, herbal tea, disposable coffee cups, hot chocolate mix, lotion
Sympathy Basket. If you don't think flowers are the right choice. Try making a sympathy basket to comfort your loved one in need. A few of their favorite things or happy memories will work. I made mine with a warm fuzzy blanket, a mug that had a nice quote about courage on it. Filled the mug with some tea and coffee. A chicken Soup for the soul book about grieving. A Yankee's "Journey's End" candle. An a homemade card which I took part of the obituary and use in it to make.
I made this Sympathy basket for a funeral service. Mini water bottles, mints, TicTacs, Gum, Pepto Capsules and Tums for upset/nervous stomachs, Advil for headaches, individual packs of tissue, peanut butter crackers and granola bars (for long days with visitation right before funeral where the family may not eat for half a day), multi-pack Blistex and cough drops. Many things a grieving family may need before, during and after a funeral service. Drop off before visitation hours.
