Guide to Buying Memorial Products

The Ideal Memorial Item Holds a Special Meaning For You

In more recent years, there has been an explosion of memorial products designed for the home, your garden, your jewelry box, and everything in between. Memorial items are no longer just monuments and markers that reside in cemeteries. The trend has been to personalize the memory of a loved one and create products that are going to serve as meaningful reminders of the people or pets you have loved and lost.

Memorial Stone

Memorial Stones - Typically, these are made in the form of stepping stones or garden stones with remembrance sayings or phrases engraved or imprinted on them. These are meant for placing in a flower garden, under a tree, or anywhere in your yard.

You can often purchase these stones with personalized information.

Angel Statue

Memorial Figures - Angels are a popular choice but you should select any figurine that is meaningful to you. What evokes a memory of your loved one? Did he enjoy golf? Was she particularly fond of turtles. Was he into cooking? Was she an avid tennis player?

You can select and display any type of figurine or Knick Knack that gives you pleasant or loving memories each time you look at it.

Memorial Candles

Memorial Candles - A memorial candle can be any favorite scent or color that your loved one enjoyed. You may find a special place in your house to display a small grouping of candles, perhaps a trio of candles to represent your love for them in the past, your memory of them today, and your loved ones legacy that will go on.

You can also purchase candles and candle holders that have remembrance phrases imprinted on them.

Memorial Prints & Artwork

Memorial Prints & Artwork - A favorite poem or a favorite verse that was meaningful to your loved one makes for a special print or artwork to frame and hang on your wall. You can take a photo and have it made into a photo canvas suitable for framing and hanging.

Shadow boxes are another way of preserving and displaying small items or artwork that serves as a comforting presence in your home.
