It can be difficult to know how to help our loved ones when they are grieving. While words can be a great help, sometimes it is nice to give a gift to help them honour and cherish the loved ones they have lost. In this blog post, we share some of our gorgeous bereavement keepsakes that make a heartfelt and thoughtful gift for those who are grieving the loss of a loved one.

Keepsake Bears

Our gorgeous keepsake memory bears are the perfect way to re-use and treasure special clothes that you just can't bear to let go of. Sometimes a single item of clothing can bring memories flooding back, and that's why our Cardigan/Jumper Memory Bear is so popular.

Cardigan/Jumper Memory Bear

If a loved one has recently passed away or you've got treasured clothes that you don't want to throw away, this keepsake bear is a lovely solution. We find it's a particularly loved item to remember grandparents or parents and can be loved by adults and children alike.

Ashes Pocket Memory Bear

Our special Ashes Pocket Memory Bear includes a pocket where you can keep a small sample of their ashes, alongside the fact you also have a beautiful bear made with their most beloved and treasured clothes. 

Photo Memory Bear

Our Photo Memory Bears are the perfect way to remember someone you've lost and always have them with you. As well as using clothing that was special to you and them, we can also add a treasured photo to your bear as one of the panels. This is a particularly loved item to remember grandparents or parents and can be loved by adults and children alike.

Keepsake Cushions

Our lovely range of keepsake memory cushions can be made from any fabric, from grown up or baby clothing. They come in a range of different styles and sizes, with options to add embroidery, such as a name and date of birth, or other special messages. Each item is lovingly crafted in our Devon workshop to the highest standards. 

Lullaby Keepsake Cushion

The Lullaby Keepsake Cushion has been made in collaboration with the amazing Lullaby Trust charity. The Lullaby Trust provides expert advice on safer sleep for babies, emotional support for bereaved families and raises awareness of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). For every cushion that is purchased, we will donate £2 to The Lullaby Trust. We can embroider one of the patches of the cushion, with a name or date and there is the option to add a special pocket containing a little re-recordable sound device.

Photo Cushions

Photo Cushions are a fantastic way to create unique keepsakes, laden with the memories that mean the most to you.  We can take your photos, either physical or electronic ones, print them to special washable cotton and incorporate them into your cushion.  

Grandad Keepsake Cushion

Our Grandad Keepsake Cushion is a really lovely way to hold Grandad, or another loved one, close. People often have very special items that they struggle to know what to do with, and this cushion is a beautiful way to cherish those memories and maintain a reassuring physical bond. These memory cushions can be made from any single shirt, top, jumper, cardigan or t-shirt, and we find this works brilliantly for loved ones that have been lost, or who are just far away. 

Memory Quilts

Our lovely Memory Quilts can have up to 45 characters of personalisation embroidery added and they are a great way of remembering so many different stages of life. There are a variety of sizes and options to choose from and we can make them from the beloved old clothing or other fabric you choose to send in, or we can create them using our own fabric. We can also create Photo Blankets and Quilts which are a fantastic way to create unique keepsakes, laden with the memories that mean the most to you.
