Loss of a Partner / Spouse
Gifts to Support Someone Coping With the Death of a Spouse or Partner

Losing a partner in life is unimaginably painful. By providing support, communities and family members can significantly make an impact if the bereaved feel comforted and loved during this time of grief. 

Gifts that provide the bereaved with tools to cope, practice self-care, and stay nourished are the most critical at this time. Curated by experts, these gifts and remembrances consider the specific needs of the survivor.

Some of the best gifts to send to people in this situation don’t necessarily provide the bereaved with an escape from their grief. Instead, gifts that soothe the survivor allow them to sit with their pain more easily. You may also consider providing them with items that support quiet reflection. 

We gently remind you that grief has no time frame. Sometimes the bereaved just want to sit on the front porch with a cup of coffee and relive old memories or mourn in silence while accompanied by a loved one, days, weeks, months, or even years from their loved ones passing.
