Cremation Urns as Gifts?
by Alex Johnson February 10, 2020 6 min read
While it may seem unusual, gifting someone with a cremation urn or urn accessories can be very helpful in the time of great pain and distress that follows a death. People in mourning don't always have the energy to think clearly about the last-minute details surrounding them. Often, they are too immersed in their grief to worry about what color urn to purchase, what design or personalization to choose. Those fine details are insignificant compared to the loss that they’re still learning to process.
The death of a beloved is one of the most difficult events in life that a person can experience. People have been known to break down over what would normally be an easy choice - their grief making each task insurmountable.
If you’re looking to purchase an urn for someone experiencing a loss, here are some suggestions of various sizes and styles of urns to help you get started in your thoughtful endeavor.
