How to choose a sympathy gift

by webdev

October 27, 2011

Grief is a difficult emotion to have, but may be even more difficult to witness someone else going through a sad or difficult time. There are thousands of ways to express your condolences, but the more personal the gift, the more it will mean to the recipient and show how much you care.

Flowers are a perfect way to show someone your sympathy. In and of themselves, they represent growth and remind the recipient that there will be brighter days. Whether the person has lost a loved one or is facing difficulty in another way, there are perfect bouquets or flowering plants for them.

If there has been a death in the family, white flowers can represent peace and heaven. There are rose bouquets from Teleflora that feature religious icons if that would suit your recipient, and there are other, more simplistic green plants or flowering plants that still send the same message of hope and growth.

If someone has passed away due to breast cancer, consider Teleflora's Pink Hope and Courage Bouquet. Not only will this bouquet convey your sympathy, it will show the family that you put a lot of thought into the gift - and donated 15 percent of your purchase to a cause to fight back.
