10 Meaningful Sympathy Gifts for Loss of Father

Father Loss Sympathy Gift Ideas

Finding the perfect sympathy gifts for loss of father can be difficult. If your loved one was very close to their father, this loss will be hitting them pretty hard. Even if they weren’t that close to their dad, there’s no doubt they’ve still lost a monumental figure in their life.

Here’s What to Send (Instead of Flowers) When Someone Dies

Memorial Gift Ideas

What should you send when someone dies, instead of flowers?

Funeral flowers are beautiful, but many people find them depressing. After all, once the hubbub of the funeral or memorial service subsides, the flowers sit on a table and… die. A sad collection of wilting flowers isn’t exactly the image you want to leave with the recipient of your memorial gift.

Horses are loved by many. The majestic power, the graceful movement, the equine beauty. Horse themed cremation urns are a popular choice as a memorial for people who loved horses, and there are plenty from which to choose.

At Urns Northwest, we offer some brilliant and premium horse themed cremation urns. Our most beloved designs are wood funeral urns made in the USA that are either standard sized (to hold the remains of one person) or companion sized (to hold the remains of two people, usually a husband and wife).

The premium feature of our horse urns is the 3-dimensional wood inlay art scene on the front of the memorial; this is a selection of laser etched woods in their natural colors which are assembled together like a 3-dimensional jigsaw puzzle to create a vivid, lifelike, yet earthy wood inlay art scene.
