Expressing your sympathy in times of bereavement is never an easy thing to do. You want to make a gesture that shows your concern and sorrow for the family that is caring but not intrusive. Sending a Florida Condolence Gift Basket as a sympathy gift is a thoughtful and heartfelt way to do this. Your basket will be designed by experts, using your ideas and thoughts of the family and deceased, to create a gift that will perfectly express your feelings to the family during this time of sorrow. Sometimes words just cannot express our emotions and a condolence gift basket can help. You cannot take away their pain or suffering, but you can send a thoughtful, meaningful gift basket selected with them in mind.
Prepare Your Basket the Way You Choose
Sending a Condolence Gift Basket with the care and compassion you feel, takes some insight into the family’s moral and spiritual affiliations. What is presented in one gift basket may not be appropriate in another and the expert you have chosen to prepare your basket will know this, based on your knowledge and history of the family. They may suggest a kosher food basket, for example, if the family is Jewish. A kosher gift basket would contain only foods that comply with the strict kosher principles of cleanliness, purity and quality. To be certified kosher, all ingredients and processing of the food must be certified kosher.
Gift Baskets for Mourning
A Shiva gift basket is usually sent to the home of the person “sitting Shiva” which is a seven-day mourning period after the funeral of a loved one. Since this is a time of reflection, close relatives do not leave the house and it is customary for friends and relatives to bring or send gift baskets to provide nourishment to those in mourning so they can concentrate on dealing with their grief.
