Keep Lost Loved Ones Close with Memorial Christmas Baubles and Keepsakes

Christmas is time for gathering up your best of the best to celebrate the festive season and the camaraderie of family and friends. And when you lose someone in that network, it may not be possible to enjoy their physical company anymore, but you can honour the memory of those loved ones passed with some memorial gestures and traditions.

In this article we demonstrate five special ways to pay tribute to those who are missed at this time of the year with memorial Christmas bauble keepsakes. To honour their life and the memories you made together, memorial Christmas baubles and keepsakes help to ensure your loved ones remain an important part of your festive celebrations and traditions.

Create a Memorial Christmas Keepsake Candle

The flame from a candle creates a symbolic representation of life and the presence of a loved one in the heart and in the mind. And when we are talking memorial Christmas keepsakes, candles are the perfect fit.

To make your memorial Christmas keepsake candle especially personal, you can try some of the following ideas:

  • use a candle in their favourite scent, their favourite colour or in an aroma that reminds you of your loved one (the beach, the rainforest, baking, etc.)
  • add some of their favourite flowers around the base of the candle – you can use individual stems, a floral garland, or even preserved flowers for this idea
  • add their initials onto the candle using a glitter pen, glue some gemstones, or order a lovely ready personalised candle from our sister company Gifts and Keepsakes.

The gentle glow from a memorial Christmas keepsake candle on Christmas Eve is a great way to keep your loved one in memory.

An Angel to Watch Over Us

Honour your loved one by arranging an angel Christmas memorial keepsake tree topper in their memory on your Christmas tree. High and proud, watching over everyone at Christmas time; there is nowhere more important to be.

For something extra special, have the name of your loved one embroidered onto one of our gorgeous deluxe angel Christmas tree toppers.

Instead of displaying your angel atop your tree, The Christmas Cart offers a gorgeous, delicate glass angel figurine inside a glass ball, which softly lights up and changes colour. You might decide to place this memorial Christmas keepsake on the mantle, beside the stockings, or on a shelf amongst other Christmas decorations. Additionally, angels personalised with a name or message in glitter calligraphy make a heartfelt gift.

Christmas Memorial Bauble Keepsake

As another idea in addition to, or in replacement of, the memorial angel tree topper, you can arrange a Christmas memorial bauble to hang on your tree. Choose a personalised Christmas decoration that either reminds you of the personality of your loved one, or select a more traditional-style memorial bauble such as a gorgeous glass heart decoration or a memorial glass disc scribed with your loved ones’ name.

The Christmas Cart also stock Christmas memorial keepsake baubles that include a heartfelt saying which also adds to the tradition. You can keep lost loved ones close to your heart and in your thoughts at any time of the year.

And if you really want to add something uber personal, create your own personalised memorial Christmas bauble keepsake to go alongside one of our glass baubles. Just use a glass craft bauble and fill it with treasures that belonged to your loved one or that have a very special meaning to you.

Memorial Christmas baubles don’t need to be restricted to a tree. They look beautiful displayed on a bauble stand or hanger in another special place in your home year-round.

Christmas Memorial Keepsake Stocking

They may not be here to enjoy the spoils inside, but hanging a personalised Christmas stocking for a loved one as a memorial at Christmas time is another lovely way to pay tribute to them. Use their Christmas stocking to remind yourself of the great times you shared together. Or perhaps write short notes and memories to include in their stocking over the lead up to Christmas. On Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, read the notes back and share your memories with everyone. Ask other family members to do the same so they can share their special memories too.

Create Christmas Memorial Bunting or Garland

Make great use of old photos and treasures with this Christmas memorial keepsake idea. Create your own Christmas memorial keepsake bunting to honour your loved ones passed. You can add anything that reminds you of them – old photos, a personal treasure or two, but be sure to add some personalised Christmas baubles or personalised Christmas decorations to really embrace the festive season.

For many of us, Christmas is the season to be jolly, but it can be a testing time for those dealing with the loss of someone special. To help fill your heart and your mind with the piece you are missing, honour their memory and celebrate the life of your loved one with our special Christmas memorial baubles and keepsakes to help pay tribute to them this year.
