Wooden Heart Keepsake
This wooden heart keepsake is a beautiful and discreet way to hold a small amount of your loved one’s ashes. It is carved in oak and has two heart halves, one half holds a small glass phial which will securely hold a small amount of ashes.
The other half can hold a small memorable item, a piece of jewellery or a lock of hair perhaps, and you can place a photograph over the top. The heart is held in place with a strong magnet.
Each wooden heart keepsake comes in a velvet pouch and a stylish presentation box which makes it a suitable sympathy gift.
Keeping the ashes
Many people keep their loved one’s ashes at home, some because they are not sure what to do with them, some because they are not yet ready to do something with them and some simply want to keep them close by, in the house. Sometimes, very well meaning, friends will give advice such as ‘it’s time to move on’ or ‘you’ll feel better if you scatter/bury them’. But only you will know how you feel with the loss of your loved one and only you will know when and if the time is right to do something else with the ashes.
Splitting the ashes
As long as there are no religious reasons it is worthwhile thinking about keeping some of the ashes, they can help to allow other members of the family or friends to satisfy their need to do something with the ashes whilst you get to keep some with you. This will give you more time to decide what you want to do as your feelings may change over time. Until then these urns can keep the ashes safely at home without you having to explain your reasons to anyone, if someone admires the keepsake it is up to you whether you tell them or not.
