How to Keep Memories Alive Through Custom Memory Gifts

this is the alt text

Losing a family member is one of, if not the most difficult thing we ever experience. The grief journey is different for everyone and there’s certainly no right way to grieve. For those who find comfort in holding something that once belonged to the beloved departed, a custom memory gift can ease the heartache.

Kidderbug Kreations offers a wide variety of custom memory gifts handcrafted with love and prayers to help keep your loved one’s memories alive.

Custom Memory Bears

A teddy bear made from grandpa’s favorite shirt can provide a comforting hug for the little one who misses grandpa.

Memory Pillows

Use Dad’s shirts to have a custom pillow made for all the family members this Christmas. As you gather and remember the time spent together, It’ll be a holiday filled with happy tears.

Several years ago, Lisa contacted me after her dad passed away. She wanted pillows made from his shirts. Although it wasn’t the same as hugging her dad, they did provide comfort. When her mom passed away, she was tasked with contacting me to make pillows for all the siblings and grandkids. They knew the power of a hug and wanted all the members to have their own special reminder of Mom and Grandma’s love. Everyone picked out their favorite shirt, one that was connected to special memories, and a custom gift was made for each one.

After Judy, one of the sisters, received hers, she sent me a note.

“Thank you so much. They are beautiful. Love them so much. Thanks for all the work and love you put into them.”

It’s music to my ears to hear I was able to help preserve precious memories through a tangible gift they can hold and receive comfort through.

Losing a parent is heartbreaking.

But there are no words to describe the pain of losing a child.

Loss of a Child Sympathy Gifts

Going home from the hospital after a stillbirth and not being able to hold your precious little one leaves an ache in your arms as well as your heart.

A teddy bear weighted to the weight of your little angel is a great custom sympathy gift that will be a treasured keepsake. One that gives you hugs from Heaven while still here on Earth.

After your loved one has passed away, it’s normal to be concerned about turning over their clothing to someone you don’t know. Be assured I treat all the clothing I receive with the greatest care – as if it were my own mom’s.

I know how much comfort these items can bring because of my own experiences. I lost 4 family members in just over 3 years. The bears and pillows I made didn’t bring them back. However, holding something I had made from their clothing sure eased the pain.

The power of a hug, even from a pillow, can ease the ache in your arms and heart. I consider it a great honor to be part of your journey through this difficult time.

If you’ve lost someone this year and would like a custom sympathy gift for yourself or surviving family members, you can order on the website or contact me for custom work.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.
