Sympathy Gifts are the perfect way to send support and provide comfort.
A Gift Basket filled with comforting foods is a very simple and effective gift gesture, which aptly expresses condolence at a time of bereavement or sorrow. To send a Sympathy Gift is to deliver a token of love or concern when you can't be there in person.
Our Sympathy Gifts have been created as gestures of kindness, designed to offer support and comfort to those experiencing bereavement on the loss of a loved one. We offer a range of Thinking Of You Gifts and Condolence Gifts beautifully arranged in gift baskets. A thoughtful Sympathy Gift Basket can be very quickly delivered overnight to any address in the UK. Bereavement Hampers are a tangible gift to show you care and express your heartfelt condolences when words don't seem enough. Whilst the sending of sympathy gifts isn't essential, they are an excellent way to convey compassion, establish a connection and express your sentiments from afar, when you can’t be physically present at the wake or funeral of family, friends, colleagues and acquaintances.
When someone we know experiences the death of a loved one, we instinctively feel their grief and sense of loss. Bereavement gifts are symbolic and serve as a practical and thoughtful way to pay your respects. Sympathy gifts play an important role in building and reinforcing social relationships. The act of giving sympathy gifts instills a sense of well being in the sender, who feels that they are doing something constructive and helpful. And the act of receiving a gift basket with a message of condolence may make a dramatic difference to the emotional well being of the bereaved family member, friend or colleague.
When someone dies, it can be hard to know what type of condolence gift to send. Acknowledging grief with more than words is close to impossible, however the delivery of a comforting sympathy basket or bereavement hamper filled with nutritious, edible food and beverages is a unique and thoughtful way to show you care. Such a personal and practical gift will always be well received at times of grief when people often struggle with food preparation, and have many well wishes calling to their home. A gift basket of baked goods, cheese and fruits is a functional and pragmatic gift solution providing sustenance and comfort as well as being ideal for sharing.
The most popular UK sympathy gift is a bouquet of flowers, but the recipient can easily get overwhelmed because they receive so many that they run out of space to put them. Another factor to consider is that a bereaved person can find their short shelf-life upsetting at a time which focuses on the fragility of death. We believe that a comforting food gift basket or hamper combined with a pretty flowering rose plant is a much better, more unique and longer lasting sympathy gift option.
All our sympathy gifts are tastefully gift wrapped, and accompanied by a thinking-of-you or deepest-sympathy gift card bearing your personal message to express your heartfelt condolences. Available for delivery on a date of your choice, and monitored by our in-house delivery tracking service, you can rest assured that the customer care team at Basketsgalore will deliver your condolences sensitively and efficiently, at what is an incredibly and upsetting time for your friends, families and colleagues.
We'd all obviously prefer not to send Sympathy Gifts, but when there is a need to express feelings in a tangible gift concept, Basketsgalore is here to deliver your message beautifully.
