When you decide on cremation services in Phoenix, AZ for a loved one, or if you decide that’s the route you want to take for your own pre-plans, you might want to find a way to make it feel more unique. Keep in mind that cremation and traditional burial are both completely honorable, respectful methods. And even if you end up doing the exact same thing someone else has done, it’s different because it’s for someone unique. But there are some intriguing products on the market that can make the services feel even more customized and special. Here are a few to consider.
Before your loved one is cremated, you could have an imprint or cast made of their handprint, footprint, or even a thumb or finger so you can place that print on a piece of art, or in a piece of jewelry. These unique pieces make you feel like you are keeping part of your loved one with you. Most people like to have a fingerprint because, as you may have heard, no two fingerprints are alike and it’s a reminder that your loved one was one of a kind.
Cremation jewelry are pieces that have small urns within them. They are often pendants, crosses, or hearts, but there are other options as well. You can place some of your loved one’s remains in the jewelry piece or perhaps a lock of their hair or even some soil from where they were scattered or buried. It’s a unique way to keep the person close to your heart. You can also share their ashes with many family members in this manner.
There are plenty of urns from which to choose, but once you pick an urn material in the right size and shape, you can also customize it, if you wish. Many urns can have engravings places on them, pictures printed on them, or even paintings done on them. You can place whatever you’d like on the urn to make the service even more special for your loved one and your family. Having a customize urn can be nice if you decide to keep it in your home as well.
There are plenty of products that you might use for final services or even hand out at the service. You can get a memorial registry guestbook for people to sign with a photo of your loved one on the front. You could print out bookmarks with your loved one’s obituary and longer biography on it to pass out and remind people of their love of books.
