Funeral & Sympathy Gift FAQs
How quickly can I have sympathy gifts delivered?
In many cases, the loss of a loved one comes unexpectedly. To help you send your condolences as soon as possible, FTD offers next-day and same-day delivery.
What are appropriate bereavement gifts?
You are probably used to picking out gifts for special, happy occasions, so you might be unsure about what is and isn't appropriate to send to someone who's grieving. Sympathy food baskets and flowers are the two most popular options because they're both comforting in their own ways. We have a specially curated collection of flower arrangements and sympathy gifts to send to loved ones who are grieving. Funeral gift baskets make for a nice gesture if you are attending a wake because they are easy to share - you can choose from fruit baskets, chocolates, and other sweet treats. We also have sympathy plants that are a more understated, and possibly lower-maintenance sentiment.
What kinds of arrangements are available for funerals?
While white flowers are usually the default for funeral gifts because of its association with peace and purity, we also have colorful bouquets if the family prefers a celebration of life. We also have an array of beautiful funeral sprays and wreaths that make for a much-appreciated decorative element at the funeral services or memorial.
