I get this question a lot . . . "Is it appropriate for me to send cookies for a sympathy gift?" Absolutely it is!! In fact, I think it's a much better choice than flowers. If you think about it, when someone loses a loved one, they get inundated with flowers from well-meaning friends and family members that want to send a thoughtful gesture. But sometimes those flowers are just a constant reminder of your loss. When you send cookies, though, you're sending a beautiful gift, as well as a useful gift. With so many people coming in and out to visit, these cookies-on-a-stick are perfect to have available to offer guests.
Above is a picture of our "grapevine basket," which has various gourmet snack items along with the cookies. Adorned with a gorgeous bow and some silk flowers, this is a beautiful way to send your condolences.
