One of the things to remember about cremation services in Bellevue, WA is that when you have your loved one cremated, you get to choose what kind of container they get for their remains after the cremation process is complete. Choosing a cremation package means they can automatically get a simple container from the funeral home, but you might want something more for them. There are a variety of urns on the market, many of which are unique, but there are other choices, too, that feel even more customized and unique. Here are a few to consider:
A Planter Pot
If your loved one had a green thumb, why not have their remains placed in a planter pot. You will think of them every time you see the pot and the plant that you grow in that pot will be all that much more special. New life will be growing out of their death and that can be meaningful to your whole family.
If you like the sound of the wind chimes in the breeze, it can feel right to you to have your loved one’s remains placed inside the chimes or in another part of the fixture. Your loved one is always present and blowing around in the wind on your porch, making beautiful music. Perhaps you spent a lot of time having chats with them out there and that’s fitting for you.
Hollowed Out Books
If your loved one always had their nose in a book, or if they had a favorite they adored, having a hollowed out book might be a nice way to keep their ashes safe and in a special location. You can place the book on a shelf with other books or in a special place of honor in your home. It’s a nice way to honor that person and keep them in a location that is unique and special.
Cremation jewelry is becoming more popular and it’s a nice way to keep your loved one as close as possible. You can get jewelry in many different materials and styles, but in general, they are usually pendant, heart, or cross shaped. You can put a little bit of your loved one’s remains in the jewelry and actually wear it to keep them close to your heart.
If you have lost a child, or if your child has lost someone special to them, having remains placed in an urn within a stuffed animal can give you, or them, something to snuggle and hug when you want to think about that person.
There are lots of other options for unique urns and final resting containers for your loved one. You could place them in holiday ornaments to hang on the tree, within a musician instrument they adored, or even in a tackle box. The options are endless.
