When a person is grieving, they require some support from people around them. Dealing with the death of someone in the family can be a challenging phase. At Tindall Funeral Home, we have seen that sometimes, people are not very sure about what other things they can do for a grieving family, apart from being there for them.

Types Of Gifts You Can Give

In addition to being there to comfort them and support them during a difficult time, there are some gifts that you can give a grieving family. Here is some information that can help:

  • Gift the family comfort foods. Put together a basket with fresh bread, cheeses, fruit, or chocolate. You can add any ready-to-eat foods, which they can reach for whenever they need to eat something. When a family is in mourning, they aren't inclined to cook something for themselves. If there are some comfort foods ready on hand, it can give them the nourishment they need without spending time cooking.
  • Another aspect that takes a back seat when someone in the family passes away is cleanliness in the house. If you want to give a meaningful gift to the family at a time like this, you should consider gifting housekeeping certificates. It is a simple yet effective way to maintain the hygiene levels they need in their house without effort.
  • Similarly, consider gifting landscape maintenance services so that the outdoor areas are cared for as well.

You can also ask them whether they need any small tasks or errands run as it can take the pressure off them. Contact us at Tindall Funeral Home through our online form or call (315) 468-5521 if you want to know about our pre-planning services and need advice.
