Updated July 19, 2017

Anniversaries can be difficult for widows because they can keep them stuck in the past and prevent them from rebuilding. A widow will appreciate a gift that supports her choice to remember the past while celebrating the future.

Memory Bench

Install a bench in honour of someone who has passed away. A personalised memory bench is a tribute to a loved one that benefits the larger community and keeps their memory alive.

Memorial Planting

Honour the deceased and allow their legacy to live by giving a memory tree and hosting a memorial planting service. This gift to a widow and her community is an enduring and green way to memorialise someone's passing.

Personalised Journal

As a place to record thoughts, capture memories and document discoveries. If you knew the couple well, buy her a journal in honour of an anniversary. Select one that fits her personality; or personalise it with an image of the couple.

Subtle Gift

Purchase a "Thinking of You" card if you are unsure if she wants the anniversary publicly acknowledged. You can acknowledged the occasion without making the recipient feel uncomfortable or pressured to share.

Inspirational Literature

An inspirational book or selection of poems lets the widow know that you have her recovery and rebuilding in mind. Consider giving a book that is written by a widow or one that encourages its reader to celebrate life.
