There is something about a dog that melts our hearts. As Ralph Waldo Emerson stated, “If I were to be exiled to a desert island, I would take a dog with me.” Our loyal companions are always by our side and they love us unconditionally. However, when they leave us it is devastating because they won’t be there to eat the food we set down for them or play with them. Grieving is hard and it takes time but here are some pet memorial gift ideas to help you get through this difficult time.
Create memorial ornaments
Who hasn’t shed a tear at the loss of a pet? Memories are the one thing that we can hold onto when they’re gone. You can create memorial ornaments having their faces and a memorial message to honor your furry pal. Whether you place the ornaments somewhere in your home all year round or put them in the big tree during the holiday, you may feel your pets a little bit closer.
In Loving Memory Pet – Memorial canvas print
A Memorial canvas print is one of the heartfelt memorial gift ideas to commemorate the loss of beloved pets. Print the photo of your beloved dog and cat and hang it on the wall. This way you can honor your furry baby. Besides, you can make personalized sympathy dog memorial gifts to send your heart left condolences to those mourning the loss of a loved one.
Personalized memorial coffee mug
Keep a pet close to your heart and home with touching memorial gifts “they still talk about coffee mug” ideas. Create a coffee mug with a picture of your furry friend, or have them bronzed in an artistic pose that you can display on your shelf. Bring comfort and a little smile to those who may be mourning the loss of their own pet, or celebrating the life of one who is still living.
Have a memorial tattoo
Another option is to have a memorial tattoo inked in your pet’s memory. This is a very personal and permanent way to always keep them close.
Create a memory book
Give your pet the tribute he deserves with a touching remembrance book. You can fill it with pictures, memories, fun facts about their favorite things (like food or toys), or some special words for them. In that way, when you’re looking back on happy times shared together, you may feel a little closer to them.
Make a Difference for Other Animals
A wonderful way to celebrate the joy and happiness your furry pals brought to the world is moving forward and making something different for other animals. You rescue an abandoned dog or do volunteer work at your local shelter or make a donation for an animal rescue organization. You can spread love and affection to other poor animals.
Plant a Tree
Planting something is a beautiful way to continue the circle of life and honor your furry family member. If they enjoyed playing under a specific tree, then maybe plant another one with the same features! This is a lovely way to ensure your pet’s memory lives on long after you’ve said goodbye.
They are more than just pets–they become family members that share equally in all aspects life has thrown at us; from birthdays to holidays right down, through resting together after long days spent working outside or playing ball inside! It’s hard to imagine that they are no longer with us. Choosing a way to memorize your furry pal can be such an important decision that helps you to comfort your heart and overcome such a hard time.
It doesn’t matter whether you want something simple like having his photograph displayed permanently within your home, or turning the memories into special keepsakes like memorial ornaments, canvas prints, and coffee mugs that you can see every day. After all, the way to honor the spirit of joy and memories that your furry friends brought to your life must make your heart feel right. Keep the memories alive and love never dies!
