3 Unique Types Of Urns For Cremation

If you are currently planning a lost loved one's cremation, you might be having a hard time choosing the right urn. Although there are plenty of beautiful urns out there, you might not feel that the ones that you have seen are truly worthy of being used to remember your loved one. If you're looking for something a bit more unique, consider one of these three options for your loved one. 

1. Companion Urns

Will both your loved one and his or her spouse or another close loved one both be cremated? If so, a companion urn can be a good choice. These urns include two separate parts that are connected together so that two people's remains can be stored closely together.

2. Cremation Jewelry

If you would like to keep a little bit of your loved one close to your heart at all times, cremation jewelry can be a great choice. Cremation necklaces are some of the most popular, but there are also bracelets, rings and more. Basically, a small amount of your loved one's remains can be placed inside a small storage pocket on the piece of jewelry, which can be a wonderful way to remember and feel close to your loved one. Since there are typically a lot more remains than what will fit inside of a piece of cremation jewelry, you can have pieces made for every member of the family, or you can choose a separate urn for the majority of the remains and can put what is left in the jewelry. Another option is to scatter the ashes but to keep a small amount to be placed in cremation jewelry. 

3. Cremation Stuffed Animal

One really unique idea is to purchase a cremation stuffed animal. As the name suggests, this involves a stuffed animal that is actually stuffed with your loved one's remains. You can often choose from various stuffed animals, so you can choose the one that will be most comforting to you or that you think your loved one would have liked the most.

As you can see, there are plenty of unique options for storing your loved one's remains, so you don't have to stick with the same boring urns that you might have seen in your search. If you do a little digging, you might be able to find a more creative option that is right for remembering your lost friend or family member.
