Curated gift boxes designed to support grieving children and teens
Children and youth grieve differently.
Whether the loss of a pet, a beloved family member, or a member of their community, young people need information, comfort and support that is tailored to their unique developmental needs. As a society, we don't always know how to respond to a child who is grieving, and so we have curated gift boxes and comfort items to help you show up for the young people in your lives, so that they will feel seen and supported in their grief.
CURATED SYMPATHY GIFT BOXES
Choose from a selection of curated gift boxes for preschoolers, school-aged children, and teens. Included in each is a therapeutic art activity, a sensory comfort item, and a personalized note from you. Some gift boxes include our recommended books for children and teens that address grief and loss in simple terms and with truthful and nondenominational language.
COMFORT GIFT ITEMS
Design your own gift from our selection of a la carte items to create the perfect combination for your loved one. Or add a comfort item to our curated gift boxes. Contact us by email for personalized support so you can feel confident about your purchase.
A HOLIDAY CRAFT KIT
The holiday ornament craft kit is a perfect gift idea for a child who is missing someone this season. Creating an ornament in someone's honour brings that loved one to mind, and it is often easier for children to talk about hard things when they are busy doing an activity alongside a trusted adult. The kit comes with a slice of birchwood, an acrylic paint set, and a 2oz container of acrylic medium for attaching a photo or for making a photo-transfer onto the wood. The ornament will become a treasured keepsake.
THE FIRST YEAR BUNDLES
Support your loved ones through the difficult first year after a loss with our Bundles. A seasonal gift box will be sent every three months, recognizing that grief is on-going and is often the hardest during the first year after a loss, and especially at transition times and seasonal "firsts".

We received the most thoughtful gift when our dog died. The kids loved the idea of making this amazing memory box and are excited to plant the seed papers on our dogs' memorial site. I obviously love all of it and find comfort in knowing that it's not just me that takes the death of a pet really hard.
I just heard from my loved ones, they received their package yesterday and are blown away. My girlfriend shared that the whole family cried and felt so deeply cared for and seen. She shared that every single element, from packaging to the items inside held deep feeling intention and care. I wanted to share her reflection with you, and celebrate the profound effects of what you are offering families. Thank you, thank you.
As a friend of someone that experienced a great loss, I’m so grateful to With Love for having thoughtful items to send to those dealing with that loss that are so much more meaningful than just sending flowers. It can be so hard to want to acknowledge the grief of losing someone, and not know what to do. With Love fills that void completely and there are so many options.
