Funeral favours for guests

Funeral favours or gifts are small tokens of the life being celebrated. They give a nod to a person’s hobby, passion, defining quality or special skill. They are a place to get creative. Here are a few ideas:

  • Memorial golf balls with the name and life dates for an avid golfer
  • Personalized packets of flower seeds for a master gardener
  • CD recordings of a talented singer performing her favourite songs
  • A favourite (maybe secret!) recipe of the best cookie baker in town—paired with fresh-baked cookies
  • Commemorative key rings for the sports car aficionado
  • Selections from a collection of shells, books, trophies or coins

Your Dignity Memorial® professional can help you come up with a great idea for funeral favours or gifts and then execute that idea for you. That way, everyone who attends the funeral service can leave with a reminder of the person they were celebrating.
