One way to show your love and care is by offering a thoughtful gift that honors their child and provides comfort during their grief. Here are 3 thoughtful gift ideas for parents who are experiencing the loss of a child.

The gift of their child’s creativity

A Book of Kids Art

Creating a book that contains the artwork from the child is a meaningful way to keep fond memories alive and provide comfort for the parents. Artkive offers a beautiful, digital art book containing 25-200 images of art for families to cherish for years to come.

The gift of food when they want it
