Giving friends and family members a memento or keepsake after a funeral service is a thoughtful thing to do. Many people will appreciate—and cherish—a little something to remember a loved one by.
Funeral favors for guests
Funeral favors or gifts are small tokens of the life being celebrated. They give a nod to a person’s hobby, passion, defining quality or special skill. They are a place to get creative. Here are a few ideas:
- Memorial golf balls with the name and life dates for an avid golfer
- Personalized packets of flower seeds for a master gardener
- CD recordings of a talented singer performing her favorite songs
- A favorite (maybe secret!) recipe of the best cookie baker in town—paired with fresh-baked cookies
- Commemorative key rings for the sports car aficionado
- Selections from a collection of shells, books, trophies or coins
Your Dignity Memorial® professional can help you come up with a great idea for funeral favors or gifts and then execute that idea for you. That way, everyone who attends the funeral service can leave with a reminder of the person they were celebrating.
Funeral keepsakes for families
We know how important it is to have tangible reminders of loved ones who have passed. That’s why we offer a collection of personalized funeral keepsakes to be treasured and passed down through generations. Here are some of the funeral keepsake options we can create for a family:
Preserve a special memory of a loved one with a favorite photograph reproduced on canvas in the style of an oil painting. The full-size memory portrait is 16 inches by 20 inches and comes in a choice of four frame colors (honey, mahogany, black or vintage silver). When you order a memory portrait, you also get five 6.5-by-7.75-inch portrait cards to share.
A remembrance blanket incorporates a favorite photo into the fabric of an heirloom blanket. Ordered ahead of time, the blanket can be a focal point at a viewing or funeral service.
Timeless Touch® silver pendant
A sterling silver thumbprint pendant lets the wearer keep a loved one close to his or her heart. Round, rimmed and imprinted with the loved one’s actual thumbprint, the pendant comes on an 18-inch box chain with lobster clasp.
A personalized slideshow movie set to music and themed imagery creates a moving tribute to remember and share a loved one’s life story. You provide us the images and video clips, and we take care of the rest. Our personalized hardcover keepsake books pair a life story with images and memories from family and friends to create a beautiful keepsake to be cherished for generations.
Cremation is an increasingly common choice—and so is cremation jewelry as a funeral keepsake. Using stone or blown glass, cremated remains can be transformed into a ring, necklace, bracelet and more.
