Finding the right words to comfort someone who is going through a hard time is never easy. Sometimes, the best way to express sympathy and offer condolences is by gifting your loved ones with something meaningful to show your love and support. A small gesture can go a long way to make the people in your life feel appreciated and cared for!
Here are a few ideas for thoughtful sympathy gifts that will let them know you are thinking about them.
The Olive Tree is a symbol of peace, strength, hope and enduring love. Gifting someone with an olive tree is a lovely way to show your love and support during a tough time. Olive trees are hardy, simple to care for and adaptable to a range of climate conditions, including warm temperatures and drought. Planted in a stylish Ecopot made from recycled plastic, this Olive Tree with its gorgeous silvery foliage is one of our most popular sympathy gift plants and is sure to put a smile on anyone’s face.
Rosemary is one of the most useful herbs to have at home. This evergreen herb is a staple in any kitchen and produces beautiful blue flowers during spring and summer. Rosemary is also a symbol of love, remembrance and friendship, making it a perfectly suitable gift for a friend or loved one who needs a pick-me-up. Rosemary is easy to care for and thrives in sunny spots like a windowsill or outside in the garden.
The Peace Lily is associated with peace, prosperity and sympathy. With its stunning white flowers and lush green foliage, the Peace Lily brings instant light and joy into a room. This plant also has a long lifespan and is easy to take care of indoors. Like all plants from Natures Colours, the peace lily is accompanied by a unique plant care guide with the option of including a printed message card and a gift bag to make the gift-giving experience even more special.
The Philodendron Birkin is an impressive indoor plant that thrives in Australia’s humid subtropical climate. Planted in a uniquely designed ceramic pot, this philodendron with its glossy leaves will be a welcome addition to any home. Philodendrons are easy to care for and can become quite big if provided with the right conditions — a lasting gift for when you want to let someone know that you are thinking about them. Simply select ‘Yes, this is a gift’ at checkout to ensure that gift wrapping is included.
Mood Booster Living Gift Set
This lliving gift set combines the best of local wellness gifts to bring some joy and offer a quiet moment of peace and relaxation. The glorious Parlour Palm is the highlight of this set, presented in a timeless ceramic pot. Accompanying this low-maintenance tropical indoor plant are two deliciously scented soy candle tins by Kandle Lab, a handmade chocolate brittle bag by Winnow and a tea gift box by Tea Drop. The tea box includes a spread of three different flavours infused with real herbs, fruit pieces, flowers and spices to ensure a tasting experience like no other.
The Bromeliad — or Flaming Sword, as per its striking flower spikes — is a great houseplant and a popular pick for sympathy plants. Bromeliads are hardy, low-maintenance plants with an impressive lifespan and blooming time. This means they will keep up their good appearances for a long time to come, making them ideal for gifting to someone special. Living gift plants offer a unique and meaningful way to let someone know they are in your thoughts and are much longer-lasting and more sustainable than opting for a gift that will easily be forgotten.
