It’s easy to feel a deep attachment to cherished artwork, a family heirloom or a piece of jewelry because they remind you of someone special. Cremation keepsakes offer a whole other level of personal connection to a loved one who has passed by keeping them close and part of your daily life.
It is extremely difficult to lose a loved one, but cremation keepsakes allow you preserve their memory and keep their presence with you in a very special and personal way. Cremation keepsakes come in a variety of forms from jewelry to home décor and even pens. These types of cremation keepsakes hold ashes, locks of hair, dried flowers or other personal, sentimental items. Here are a few unique and customizable forms of cremation keepsakes that help maintain the memory of a loved one in a very special and deeply personal way.
Keepsake jewelry can be filled with a loved one’s ashes to always keep them close to your heart. Rings, lockets, and customized pieces in the shape of a cross, angel or even rosary beads create a very personal memorial that can be with you all the time. A cremation keepsake in the form of jewelry is one of the most intimate sentiments you can create.
The memory of your loved one can be kept alive with a cremation keepsake such as a candle, clock, hourglass, or figurine of an angel or other spiritual symbol. These types of cremation keepsakes don’t look like traditional urns and create a final resting place that might be only known to you or other close family and friends.
The comforting hug of a teddy bear can span all ages. Especially for children, dealing with the loss of a parent, grandparent or sibling can be very upsetting and quite confusing. Most children already love stuffed animals and look to them for comfort and security, especially during difficult times. Teddy bear keepsake urns create very special friends for children when they’re feeling sad and miss someone they love.
Cremation keepsakes come in many forms now including personal accessories like key chains and pens. These create very subtle yet intimate reminders of a loved one that can be used in daily life, but only known to the user. Each of these small cremation keepsakes can hold a small portion of cremains, a lock of hair, crushed flowers or other sentimental memento. The key chain gives you the feeling that your loved one is with you always, as you open the door to your home or drive in the car; while the pen can inspire heartfelt wishes writing notes and letters, or even writing checks to charities in the person’s name.
