Sending a Sympathy Gift

Wednesday, October 26, 2022

If you’re reading this blog post, we want to start off by saying we’re so sorry for you and your loved ones. We hope this guide makes the process of sending a sympathy gift easier for you.

Sympathy Bouquet

It’s hard to know how to make a meaningful gesture for someone when a loved one passes. In many cultures, it’s customary for people to send a bouquet of flowers and/or send food as a way to make the person grieving feel thought of.

With so many products to choose from, the process of picking a sympathy gift might feel overwhelming, especially when someone you care about is grieving. This blogpost details some of our preferred bouquets in the Sympathy Collection to hopefully simplify the process for you.


Calla lilies have a long-standing history of being gifted when someone is grieving. These flowers are a classy option to make someone feel thought of and are especially appropriate when gifting to someone who may be a bit more formal and traditional.


Though your loved ones might be feeling anything but sunny in these trying times, the hues of yellow and orange are an uplifting and thoughtful gesture. This bouquet might be favored more by someone who is less concerned with tradition and prefers to celebrate the good, even when it’s exceptionally hard to do so.


This bouquet has a gorgeous calming design. While not quite as cheerful as the previous bouquet, this arrangement lacks formalities and inspires thoughtfulness and self-reflection. This arrangement is perfect for someone who may be a bit more introverted or finds peace through connecting with nature.
