When faced with the daunting task of picking from among the many cremation urns to store your loved one’s ashes in, you first need to determine if you are planning to bury the urn or display it in your home. If your family intend to scatter the ashes or bury them while contained inside the urn itself, you can look into those made with biodegradable materials so you can be assured that the soil or sea, whichever applies to your situation, is not harmed. If the intention is to display the urn inside your home, you can opt for those kinds that will double as art pieces so you can coordinate it with your existing décor if you wish. For outdoor use, there are garden-themed urns or memorials that are weatherproof as well.
To help keep cremation costs down, you can choose from among the smaller and less expensive cremation keepsakes available in the market. This way, each member of the family can purchase their own cremation jewelry for their personal use so you need not buy any single large urn. Each one of you will then have a part and a reminder of the loved one you have lost but whose memory you wish to cherish for years to come.
