When you want to pay tribute to a person's life, sending sympathy flowers and gifts directly to those who are grieving is a moving gesture. A sympathy flower or gift delivery provides comfort to grieving loved ones, as well as allowing you a way to celebrate the lifetime of memories shared. Flowers, plants and other sympathy gifts provide a beautiful and intimate way to express your feelings. Also, the wide variety of options at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM allows you to find a tribute that is as unique as that person was during their lifetime. When choosing from our sympathy flowers and gifts, it is important to consider where they will be displayed – either at the funeral or in the home or office.

Floral Arrangements and Plants

We have a wide variety of floral arrangements available from white lilies, calla lilies and mixed bouquets to wreaths and more. Wreaths are particularly popular as the circle is a symbol of the continuance of life. For a more lasting tribute, you may want to consider a plant such as a gardenia. Both table and floor plants can be displayed at the funeral and then taken home by the family members so they can continue to enjoy the beauty of your gift.

Sympathy Gifts

When browsing through sympathy gifts to send to the home of the deceased, or to be displayed and shared in an office, popular choices are floral arrangements, plants and food gift baskets. Sympathy gift baskets are filled with comfort foods to help grieving friends and family at this difficult time. They are also an excellent choice for sharing at a memorial service. Sympathy floral arrangements from 1-800-FLOWERS.COM allow you to choose a beautiful way to express your feelings to the family. Plants allow the tribute to continue long after the funeral has been held and provide some beauty in the home of the recipient.
