Condolence Gifts: Memory Bear

Condolence Gifts

Would you like to give condolence gifts that bring comfort to your recipient? While others are sending out generic gift baskets and flowers, would you like to offer a keepsake that can be treasured for a lifetime?

At ReMinkie, we make memory bears, custom pillows and custom blankets as condolence gifts. Not only are our condolence gifts beautiful, they can be extremely comforting in times of loss and grief.

Condolence Gifts: Memory Bears

Pictured above: memory bears made with clothing belonging to men who have passed away. We designed the memory bears in honor and memory of beloved husbands and fathers. These were given as beautiful and meaningful gifts to those who were left behind.

What makes our memorial and bereavement gifts so special is that they are holdable and huggable. They’re tried and true when it comes to tears and grief. Due to their comforting nature, memory bears have been given to Alzheimer’s patients for solace in times of stress. In fact, ReMinkie has designed and donated bears to Alzheimer’s patients.

Condolence Gifts: Last a Lifetime

Why give disposal gifts? Instead, give keepsakes and memory bears made from clothing that’s recycled and repurposed from a loved one’s closet. At ReMinkie, we make the highest quality bears and keepsakes. We want your gift to stand the test of time, and become an heirloom to pass from one generation to another.

Sympathy Gifts: Traditional vs Unique

It’s often difficult to know what to say or do when a friend or loved one is grieving. Acknowledging the loss is extremely important. A sympathy gift can be a perfect way to send the message that you care deeply.

Traditionally many send flowers as sympathy gifts. However, this often leaves the grieving person with more flowers arrangements than they can count. It addition, it’s not a gift that lasts. Watching flowers wither and die isn’t necessarily comforting when someone is grieving. So you may want to choose a sympathy gift with a longer lifespan.

Sympathy Gifts: Alternatives to Sending Flowers

Condolence Gifts: Memory Bears

Condolence Gifts: Memory Bears. Memory Bears made from clothing (old neckties). Recycled clothes.

Sometimes families have left instructions of what to give “in lieu of flowers.” You may want to contact the funeral home to ask if the family has offered an “in lieu of flowers” suggestion.

Alternatives to sending flowers include: gifting a plant, tree or shrub; keepsake boxes; garden stones; putting together a memorial album; and more.

If you’re looking for a gift that offers both meaning and comfort, you want to consider a memory bear or memory quilt.

Memory bears and memory quilts can be made out of any clothing (including furs and neckties) that belonged to or are reminiscent of the person who passed away.

They offer comfort to all ages — from grieving children to grieving seniors. Memory bears and memory quilts are sympathy gifts that can be hugged and snuggled and wept-on, as needed. They are known to provide comfort to those who are suffering from a loss.

We make memory bears and memory quilts from all types of clothing and materials — including baby blankets; school and work uniforms; old t shirts; neckties; old fur coats and mink stoles; and much more. Thinking of something unique? We can create custom keepsakes, based on your needs.

Sympathy Gift for Yourself

If you have lost someone, you may want to give a memory bear or memory quilt to yourself. Self-care is very important during times of loss and grief. Having a bear or quilt that reminds you of the one you love — and is also great to cuddle — can be a great comfort.
