GIFT GUIDE FOR BEREAVEMENT GIFTS

GG_illustrations_bereaverment.png

There are no words nor gifts that can lighten the heavy weight of your giftee's grief. A beautiful soul has left this beautiful world and even though they have promised to celebrate their life and legacy. . . there are tears, there are broken hearts, and there is grief. All consuming, anguishing grief.

Here at Occasional.ly, we know that a bereavement gift isn't just a gift. It's a symbol of support. It won't take away the pain, but maybe, just maybe, it will make them feel like they are not alone during this tough time. ❤️
