A sympathy basket can be relatively easy to put together.
When you decide to give your Bereavement Basket will determine what you will chose to include.
A) If you are very close to the person grieving, perhaps you can make a small basket for the day of the visitation and funeral.
Things you could include:
Also having been through this myself and knowing how long the day can be, sometimes a cereal or granola bar can be helpful or even a sleeve of graham crackers – something to give a boost of energy – while being easy on the stomach. Even if they don’t feel hungry they will need energy to make it through the day.
Include a teardrop bottle or a small pamphlet with comforting verses.
B) If you are making a sympathy basket to bring at a later time to the bereaved, there are other ideas of things to include.
You might want to include any of the following:
Make the basket personal, add special touches that show you were thinking of them.
If you live too far away you might want to consider sending one.
