If someone you know has recently lost a loved one and gone through the process of cremating them, giving them a cremation gift is one way to show your support. There are a variety of cremation gifts that are both helpful and thoughtful. Learning about appropriate cremation gifts can ensure you get the perfect present for your loved one in need.


Consider giving jewellery made specifically to hold a small amount of cremation ashes so that the person can keep a piece of her deceased loved one close at all times. You can give heart-shaped lockets, pendants in a number of shapes or even charms for bracelets. Find a piece of jewellery that represents the recently passed person, such as a pendant with his initials engraved.


Urns are sealable vases or boxes used to hold some or all of the cremated remains. Urns can have photos of the deceased or be engraved with their names. Expensive granite or wooden urns are a sturdier than ceramic or glass ones, which can break. Getting an urn for a person is also helpful, as cremation is expensive. Taking the worry out of purchasing extras like an urn can help alleviate anxiety during this hard time.

Memorial Plaque

A memorial plaque complete with a photo of the deceased and an engraving is another gift option, which can be put on display at a memorial service. Afterward, it can serve as a keepsake to hang in a home. Include small trinkets or items that can be framed that pertain to the deceased to make the plaque extra personal. Funeral homes often sell these plaques or a trophy shop can make one to order.

Memorial Rock

If the person who passed loved the outdoors or had a garden, a memorial rock is another possibility. A rock can be engraved with the deceased's name and placed in the front yard or the garden. You can also find memorial rocks that double as urns and are made from durable materials that will withstand rain, snow and wind.
