Nothing hurt more than losing a family member, a friend or any dear one. It’s one of those very few things in life that can shake your world, and while everyone grieves differently, there is no timeline or last date to grief. However, the mourning process becomes less difficult knowing that you’re loved, supported and not alone. But it can be hard to think of the right gestures or words to express someone who’s grieving. Sometimes something as simple as kinds works, small gestures or presents can let your loved one know that you want them to stay happy and healthy and you’re always by their side no matter what.
Though it may be uncomfortable, condolence gifts can act as a distraction when everything feels particularly dark and overwhelming. Not knowing what to say is completely normal. Everyone is different and overcome the mourning process in their own way. To help you express to someone who’s struggling that you care, we’ve compiled a few sympathy gifts. Have a look!

Cook A Meal
There’s a reason why people bring casseroles to someone who has just lost a loved one. It’s quite impossible to find time and energy to cook or eat when dealing with a whole lot of pain.
