What do you get someone for condolence?
Because they’re being given for a solemn occasion, condolence gifts should not be too flashy, humorous, or materialistic. That doesn’t mean that a condolence gift can’t be cheerful; in fact, the point of a condolence gift is to inspire a bit of cheerfulness in the recipient by expressing love and support for that person. Ideal condolence gifts include:
● Flowers or plants
● Gift baskets
● Personal mementos
Sympathy flowers and memorial plants
make for beautiful expressions of condolence, and they’re suitable for either the home or office of the grieving person. Through their sheer beauty, sympathy floral arrangements can express a vast array of emotions. For funeral services, we offer a variety of funeral sprays
and cremation flowers
Sympathy gift baskets
may be some of the most helpful gifts for people who are grieving. Our FTD gourmet baskets come with tasty treats that will help keep the bereaved from being malnourished during a period of mourning, and add a little something sweet to brighten their day.
Small mementos of the departed person may also be a fine condolence gift. We have a variety of beautiful remembrance figurines
and plush figures
that can be either admired or cuddled with.
You can include a condolence card
with any condolence gift so you can write a personal message to the recipient.
Do fruit baskets make good condolence gifts?
Fruit baskets make excellent condolence gifts. Grief can cause mourners to lose their appetite, and their health might suffer if they don’t eat enough food. Fruit baskets are good for two reasons. First, fruit is a healthy food option that’ll provide a grieving person with important nutrients. Second, grieving people tend to prefer snacks to full-course meals, and so a fruit basket accommodates that habit.

Yes! And many of our floral arrangements can be ordered for same day delivery
