When a loved one experiences a loss, saying the right thing is often tricky. Finding words that comfort or any act big enough to cheer them up can be challenging. The only thing we can do when someone tragically passes away is to show their inner circle that we're there for them if they want to talk or need some comfort and support.
One of the most effective ways to do this is to use gift baskets. While a sympathy gift might not bring them all the comfort they need, they're an excellent way to show your loved one you're thinking of them during this difficult time.
Sympathy gift baskets can come in many different forms, but the thing they all share is that they're tailored to provide comfort, be that through food, flowers or personal items. You can even customize sympathy baskets that cater to your loved one's interests, needs, or anything you think they would benefit from.
This blog presents five sympathy gift ideas to help you care for a grieving loved one.
Whether a loved one has lost a family member, friend, pet or co-worker, compassionate gifts divert their attention to something positive. If you're searching for perfect sympathy gift baskets, here are five ideas:
Food sympathy gift baskets are one of the most popular sympathy gifts due to their versatility and ability to be customized to the recipient's personal tastes. We often turn to food as a source of comfort in our time of need, but it's not just delicious treats we crave when we're sad.
When grieving, people may often put their needs second, so offering a food basket full of nutritious goods is an excellent way to encourage your recipient to put their needs first for a few minutes. You can find gift baskets full of comforting foods like baked goods, chocolate, nuts, pretzels and other small snacks.
If you want to care for someone's well-being while sending your deepest condolences, consider a healthy gift basket. We have healthy favourites gift baskets packed with delicious and nutritious goodies.
Flowers are a surefire way to lift someone's spirits. Although perishable, flowers clearly show someone you're thinking of them and allow them to place it around their home to spread a little you.
You can even find plantable flower baskets or stock a gift basket with seeds or gardening tools to encourage your recipient to manage their grief through nature. Consider finding a gift basket packed with the recipient's favourite flowers to tailor their basket to their interests.
As mentioned, when someone is grieving, they tend to put their needs on the back burner. There's no better way to make someone feel comforted than to give them a self-care package that encourages them to take a few hours for themselves.
Consider buying a spa-inspired luxury gift basket that includes bath products, candles and other pampering tools. Providing a large selection of self-care utensils will remind them to always take care of themselves during difficult times.
If you're not sure of how to tailor a loved one's sympathy gift basket to their personal interests, consider sending a gourmet fruit basket. Gourmet fruit baskets combine comforting foods like cheese and chocolate with nutritious and fresh fruits, providing a general yet still a thoughtful gift. A bright collection of refreshing fruits are sure to bring a smile to their face.
If you really want to treat a loved one, consider using a wine gift basket packed with a high-quality bottle of wine and delicious snacks so they can enjoy a drink in their loved one's memory. You can provide a bottle of wine that's a perfect sympathy gift for taking to small gatherings to celebrate someone's life. At My Baskets, you'll find a great collection of wine gift baskets that also come with food, flowers and even stuffed animals if you want to give someone in mourning an extra lift.

Thanks for the prompt delivery.
The person we sent the basket to shared a picture, it was just like the one on the web site. Placing the order was very easy and it was delivered the same day which was amazing!
Robt. Mondavi is tasty and evenly priced. Best with a beef dinner . Cabernet Sauvignon is my favorite.
