When you learn that someone has passed away, a lot of things will enter your mind. Often, you'll want to find the perfect memorial gift to give the person's surviving family members as a way to show your support. The right gift can provide a significant amount of comfort to the family in the years ahead, and they'll likely never forget your kindness. There are all sorts of directions that you can take when you shop for a memorial gift, but it's useful to think about the deceased person's favorite things. If they enjoyed working in their garden, here are some gift ideas that might be appropriate.
An engraved stone that the surviving family members can place somewhere in their garden is a thoughtful way to pay tribute to the deceased person's love of gardening. Memorial stones are available in many shapes and sizes. Some have more of a natural look, while others are highly polished and may even be cut into shapes such as a heart. Regardless of what stone you pick, you can get it engraved in a way that suits you. One option is the person's name and their years of birth and death. Another option is the person's name and a quote about love or remembrance.
If you favor going in a different direction, a special set of wind chimes can be a good memorial gift idea. The surviving family members can hang the wind chimes somewhere around the garden — perhaps from the branch of a tree or maybe from a bracket attached to the fence. They'll likely think of their late loved one when they hear the wind chimes produce sound in the breeze, and this may provide some comfort. You also have the option of engraving the wind chimes to customize this special gift.
A birdbath makes a good addition to any garden, but it can also work well as a memorial gift — particularly if you get the bowl engraved with a message that honors the memory of the person who has passed away. Birdbaths come in all sorts of styles, so it's ideal to shop for one that will suit the look of the family's yard or that you know the deceased person would have loved. The family members will enjoy watching birds splash around in the water and these happy sights may help them to recall happy moments with their late loved one.
