A gift for a parent who just lost a child is probably one of the most difficult gifts to give. While simply spending quality time with someone who is grieving is a great way to support them, often the right gift can also offer some comfort.
"Giving a gift isn't necessary. But during a time of mourning, especially the death of a child, giving a gift is memorable", says Moria Rooney, Founder of Mother of Wilde. "When you can't physically be there for a loved one, a gift carries significant weight and meaning."
Sending a floral arrangement or a plant when someone has passed away is a traditional gift choice. Choosing a custom gift that intentionally honors the memory of their son or daughter is priceless.
Here are 3 of the best gifts of 2022 for people coping with the loss of a child.
