Choosing A Cremation Urn For Mom: Four Ideas To Consider

Having your mom pass away can be a devastating experience at any age. Paying tribute to her life and the love she gave can be one way to help deal with the grief. For a mother who chose cremation, selecting a beautiful cremation urn can be part of that tribute. Here are just some of the options available to choose from.

Wooden Urn Boxes

Wooden urn boxes offer a unique take on the classic urn. They can be customized with poems or religious writings that were meaningful to your mother, and they can also be customized with flameless candles you can use to safely pay tribute to her on special occasions. Choose from a range of shapes and styles, as well as wood finishes, to make this urn option complete.

Music Box Urns

Music box urns offer a lovely way of remembering your mom through song. They can be customized with a special song you both loved, or they can feature one of several traditional religious songs. These musical boxes also come in a range of sizes, making them ideal for dividing the cremains among you and your siblings.

Angel Urns

If your mother was religious, or if you simply believe she was an angel on earth, an urn adorned with angels can be a beautiful choice. You can find urns shaped like angels or traditional designs with urns depicted on the sides. Opt for classic white or ivory for an urn statue, or choose her favorite color as the background for a traditional urn.

Urn Sets

You can find urns that come with smaller token or companion pieces, which make an ideal choice for a mother leaving behind a spouse and children. The token urns are smaller in size, but they can still hold cremains. This option lets you divide the cremains between your family members so everyone can pay tribute to their mom individually. The large urn can be kept at the house you grew up in, left with your other parent, or it can even be interred at the cemetery.

When it comes to choosing urns, there are countless designs and options to choose from. If you aren't sure where to start, your funeral home director can help you look for the design that best suits your mom's personality as well as your own. Remember that you don't have to make a decision about an urn right away in the same way that you might for a casket. With cremation, you can take your time and find the perfect option to show your love for mom.
