Sending Sympathy Care Packages for Bereavement

In times of loss, finding the right way to express your condolences can be challenging. When a loved one is grieving, we often feel at a loss ourselves, unsure of how to provide comfort and support. One deeply thoughtful way to show you care is by sending a bereavement care package, (often appreciated by the recipient more than flowers which can be upsetting to watch fade away). This simple yet meaningful gesture shows sympathy with care and warmth in tough times.  

At IzzyBee we have a selection of ready curated sympathy care packages suitable to send after a loss or you can build your own bereavement hamperfrom our selection of comforting, foodself-careand thoughtful gifts and send in our bespoke card box or basket. 



With Sympathy Gift Care Package

Our newly curated With Sympathy Care Package includes thoughtful British-made gifts to help provide some quiet reflection time and self-care. With a 'Quiescent' soy wax eucalyptus-scented candle and a caffeine-free herbal tea formulated with lemon balm and peppermint to relax and calm. The lavender wheatbag is filled with English wheat and English lavender and almost provides a hug from afar to support and comfort your loved one's grief... It can be warmed in the microwave for warmth (or put in the freezer to cool).  There is the option to choose a navy tartan pattern instead of the little white hearts. Finally some 'Calm' himalayan bath salts with patchouli, frankincense & lavender essential oils  toencourage self-care and time to relax. 

We also have a 'Thinking of You'Gift Hamper care package with a range of gender-neutral gifts to show they are in your thoughts.


You might prefer to tailor your gift specifically to suit the recipient. This is particularly handy if you are sending a gift to a whole family and would like to include items for different people, including children or teenagers. Browse all of our 'Make Your Own Hamper' collections and we will include your selection in the a gift box (or basket if you choose).

We have a wide selection of Self-care & wellness gifts, food gifts, novelty & book gifts, men's gifts,  gifts for vegans and pampering gifts.

Don't worry - we will make sure the box (or basket) is the most appropriate size for the gifts you select and they will be all beautifully presented in our planet-friendly packaging; our bespoke card box with ribbon, paper shred, tissue paper and a card with your gift message handwritten. We don't limit the number of words you can write so you say exactly what you need to support 

Some of our favourite comforting gifts to send after a bereavement include:

Always With You Pocket Pewter token - to remind them you are always there for them, even if from afar. It's small enough to slip into a pocket or wallet and is handmade by Kutuu in England. 


Grey Herringbone Blanket - something to snuggle up to and provide warmth so it almost feels like sending a big hug from afar. 

Book - Grief, Loss & How to Cope - a practical guide to get through the short and long term after loss. Written by Christopher Spriggs and Jess Smallwood.


Many of our customers also like to include food gifts, as in the immediate stages of grief, nourishment can often be pushed to one side. We have a wide range of food giftsincluding a section just for vegans too. We'd recommend some dried fruit snacks, or perhaps some comforting chocolate biscuits.



We offer the option to send your care package the next day. If we receive your order by 2pm Monday - Friday, with the Next Day delivery option selected, your parcel will be delivered the next day with the UK (including Northern Ireland). Delivery includes Saturdays too.

Adding a handwritten note expressing your condolences can mean a lot. Sharing a fond memory of the deceased or simply letting the recipient know you are there for them can provide immense comfort. We handwrite this for a personal touch and don't limit the number of words you can write.
