At Acknowledgements, we understand how difficult it is to know what to say or do when a friend or loved one is grieving or experiencing difficult life transitions. The traditional gift of sympathy flowers has always been the easiest way to express condolences and we agree that flowers are a beautiful expression of sympathy, but a grieving loved one needs more. There are many ways to help a loved one heal; a piece of symbolic jewelry, a memorial garden, a guided remembrance journal – each helpful in supporting the healing process, as well as sending the recipient a message of love and support.
A unique and meaningful sympathy gift is not easy to find; everyone is different and the circumstances of their grief are unique to their life. We suggest that you begin your visit at our Sympathy Gifts section where you will find a variety of meaningful packages, each designed around a specific theme and need. You will find our popular baby loss gift here, as well as our best selling Box of Comfort, appropriate for most anyone who is grieving and includes our favorite book on grief, The Mourning Handbook.
Please take time to look at our Memorial Garden Gifts. Creating a memory garden as a living tribute to a loved one is healing and an ideal way to keep their memory alive whether they are family, friends or even pets. Once it becomes established, it becomes a cherished place to reflect and remember. You’ll find our favorite memorial garden starter kit and a our new whimsical butterfly garden which is especially suited for a family. Even just placing a personalized stepping stone in a garden creates a sacred place that is a constant reminder of memories shared. We have not forgotten our animal lovers! Check out our pet tribute garden, a wonderful way to honor a cherished animal companion.
Grieving is the process of learning to live your life without someone you care about. It is a lifelong journey.
Finding a gift for someone going through a rough time, whether its loss of a loved one, an illness or family crisis is just as difficult. Our selection of gifts in the Difficult Times section offers our popular caring and comfort gift for anyone going through a rough time, along with our newest get well gift containing just the right amount of TLC. We have a variety of get well gifts that will assure the recipient that you are thinking of them and sending well wishes.
We are excited to share some improvements that have been made to our website. Our simplified layout will make it easier for you to navigate and choose the sympathy gift that best suits your needs. Several new gifts have been added to the Acknowledgements gift line, we have designed a new gift box as well as added the new category, Simple Sentiments. We know that everyone’s cutting back and an affordable gift is more important that ever right now. This motivated us to design a line of gifts that wouldn’t break the bank, but would still offer a message of sympathy, provide lasting comfort and offer support for healing. Yes, our gift box has changed, and we love it! Still gorgeous, still reusable and still elegantly representing the integrity of our gift line. As always, Acknowledgements is here to offer ideas and support while you shop our selection of sympathy gifts as well as gifts for difficult times.
As we begin our tenth year in business, Acknowledgements remains dedicated to delivering your heartfelt condolences with unique and meaningful sympathy gifts. From our unique gift boxes tied with elegant ribbon to your handwritten condolence message in our sympathy card, we take care of every detail.
A Personal Message…
My own personal experiences with grief, along with the many stories that have been shared with me, have shaped my great respect for the grieving process and influenced every aspect of the Acknowledgements sympathy gift line.
From the beginning, our goal was to create an alternative to sympathy flowers, a sympathy gift that would do two things: provide comfort and support to the grieving recipient, and help our customers send a gift and message that truly represented their sincere feelings of sympathy. With this in mind, we carefully designed a line of sympathy gifts that deliver support, comfort, and healing.
As you look through the sympathy gift store, my hope is that you find the perfect gift to provide your loved one with comfort and encouragement on their journey through grief. We offer the very best customer service, as well as provide information and ideas that will assist you in delivering your message of sympathy.
Finding the right words for a sympathy card is often very difficult. Please take a moment to look at our popular Words of Sympathy page, which now includes a compilation of heartfelt sympathy quotes and our favorite sympathy sayings. I hope that our gift selection and service will make a very difficult situation a little easier.
Visit Acknowledgements on Facebook! This is a chance to keep up with our new gift ideas and company changes as well as articles, poems, current events and just our thoughts on sympathy and grief and maybe a touch of me! And of course if you have a Facebook page I’d love to hear from you!
