If you are searching for a tasteful yet meaningful sympathy gift, we hope one of these gift selections will touch not only your heart, but also the heart of the person you're giving it to. The ancient tear bottle tradition is actually a mourning tradition. Women of ancient Rome were known to capture their tears in glass bottles and bury them with loved ones to show honor and devotion. Today, tear bottles are more of a symbolic tradition, but they remain a compassionate and poignant way to say, "I share your tears of sorrow upon the loss of your friend." Mourning traditions such as the tear bottle tradition are still important in this century, to honor the life of one who has moved on. A Prayer Bracelet is another fitting gift for a prayerful soul; the gift recipient can write a small prayer and slip it into the miniature prayer box on the bracelet. The Profound Loss Bereavement print is another gift option. It features a comforting quotation that acknowledges our tears and reminds us that these tears are never in vain. Each of these gifts is a simple, powerful, and symbolic gift of condolence - we hope you agree.
