10 Gifts for Those That Have Lost Loved Ones
The holidays are in full swing and they’re filled with festivities, joy, and laughter…for many. However, there are also people in your life that will be going through a difficult time during this holiday season. Whether their loss is recent or not, the reminder of their absence is never an easy burden to bear. This gift list is a little unconventional but designed to show your support and love during a difficult time. All gifts below range from free to about $50, but the message behind each gift is priceless.
Custom Memorial Keychain: This keychain allows you to print a photo on the front and a personal message on the back. You can repurpose those birthday and holiday cards to use the actual handwriting for the message! Link: http://etsy.me/2hFVzYobr
Memorial Pillow: This gift is free, but will take some of your time. The link goes to a tutorial on how to convert a button down shirt into a pillow. This is a great way to preserve and repurpose clothes that may have ended up in a box otherwise.

Willow Tree Remembrance Figurine: The Willow Tree line has something for everyone. While we’ve linked the angel, they also have options for mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, spouses… what we’re trying to say is that they have one to fit every situation.
While Christmas time is the season of giving, these gifts are not all specific to the holidays. These are great gifts any time of the year to show your support during a difficult time.
