Personalized pet marker
An animal friend is no doubt a family member. To many pet parents, our pets are just as important to us as the people in our lives. So when it comes to saying goodbye, many pet owners choose the burial method for these members just like for humans.
After a pet has crossed the rainbow bridge, but some people are not ready to say goodbye. Many of them like to have their mark to tangle the memories at a special place or just around the corner of the house. Giving your pet a place of honor with a marker is a beautiful pet sympathy gift. But how do you get an appropriate one?
First, consider whether you want it personalized or not. Still, we would highly recommend having it custom-made since no pets are the same. Personalizing your marker can be more satisfying than you have imagined. For instance, get a marker with the wind chime design within it like the one in the picture. If you want to see your old friend’s face, then pick a large one for a photo and artwork, or else just go on with a small piece of stone and add a sentimental message. So let your imagination run wild.
Personalized pet remembrance jewelry
There is a diversity of pet memorial jewelry to choose from so you can keep your pet’s memory close to you at all times. Here are some of our notable recommendations:
Personalized Paw Print Ring
The pawprint of a pet is like the handprint of a human. Particular pets have one and only one print of themselves. There are services to make their pawprint, yet most veterinarians would gladly take them for free a few hours before they had their last breath. Unique as it might sound, many people have thought of it. So let take a further step and make it become a, having a paw print ring is so much more exclusive and intimate. Once in a while, it recalls the feeling when “paws on hands” that comforts you more than a human hand.
If you are decided to cremate your pet then you will need to decide what to do with the ashes. The common way to honor pets is to give them a final resting place on the mantle or other noteworthy spot in the house.
So why not make it into something commonplace? Instead of locking your pet’s cremains, in a boring box, make it into a necklace and you can have them every day. This will make your keepsake or sympathy gift even more meaningful. That portable memento can be displayed prominently or tucked away in clothing as a more private tribute.
Pro tip: Urns necklace can also be personalized with your pet’s photo and name, with paw sign or claw shape and so much more.
Custom Phone Case
Ever since the 4.0 technological evolution, the cellphone has become an inseparable subject for anybody. Your smartphone keeps you connected with family, friends, while your phone case keeps you connected with the lost one.
Unlike a t-shirt, you have to change every day, or a portrait you see at home only, a phone case with your dearest pet is coming in very handy. Adding some quotes or a short profound quote can make it more alive. With the typical frequency of using phones, you will see your pet friend so often as it seems they never left you.
Personalized Pet Portrait
We all know, after pets, art is the second-best thing that can heal souls. So why not put two in for one to have the prime combo. Stop mourning and start celebrating your pet’s life now by immortalizing them in the form of a work of art. This gift will require you a certain amount of attention and time when it comes to drawing, editing details, and so on.
Yet, when you take that extra step to get your loved ones a gift that celebrates another of the most important relationships in their life, it honors both of your bonds. Not to mention that having them made is not that hard. All you have to do is provide a photo to the artist who will then create the portrait or a price fractional option: have a photo of the pet print on the frame. Both would work smoothly.
After a long hard day, there’s nothing quite nice like snuggling up with your favorite blanket but when you personalize a blanket with your beloved pet on it, it could bring the coziness as you always be wrapped in their furry embrace. From that being said, a cuddly soft blanket is a great way to remind you how it feels when having adored pet in your bed every night and day (sometimes 😂). So quickly have a custom fleece blanket with your pet memories on. We think this will make them know that now when they are personalized place, you are also in a warm and cozy place, too.
