Keepsake urns are smaller and more personalized than traditional urns

What is a Keepsake Urn?

There are many ways to commemorate a loved one after they have passed. The process of mourning and celebrating their life is deeply emotional and personal. This is especially true when it comes to finding the right urn. Cremation keepsake urns have emerged as a distinctive and heartfelt way to memorialize a loved one. In this blog, we will explore what a keepsake urn is, understand what sets them apart from traditional urs, how they commemorate a loved one, and the unique tribute that custom keepsake urns offer.

Cremation Keepsake Urn

You might be wondering, what is a keepsake urn?

A keepsake is a smaller memento that is meant to symbolize a memory of a significant person, place, or event. Many people may think that “keepsake urns” is another word for “urn,” but they are actually separate things. Cremation keepsake urns are a special type of urn that hold a small portion of a loved one’s ashes, while normal urns hold all of a person’s remains. For reference, a standard-sized urn is about 200 cubic inches, and though some keepsake urns can be larger, a typical keepsake urn is less than 50 cubic inches. Cremation keepsake urns provide a more intimate way of preserving someone’s memory, allowing family members and friends to keep a physical connection with their loved ones.

Cremation keepsake urns allow you to commemorate your loved one in a way that is meaningful to you. These urns often find a place on mantles or bedside tables, serving as a reminder of your enduring bond and cherished memories.

Alternative to Traditional

Cremation keepsake urns are designed to provide a more shareable option over traditional urns. Since they are smaller, they allow for multiple family members to have their own keepsakes. This allows for a sense of unity and shared remembrance amongst those we cherish. In fact, keepsake urns are often called “sharing urns” for this very reason. Those with limited living quarters, such as an apartment or retirement home, will also appreciate the smaller size of these urns. Additionally, many families make plans for burial or to scatter a loved one’s ashes in a predetermined place. Cremation keepsake urns allow families to keep a part of their loved one close while still honoring original plans. Cremation keepsake urns are also often artistically crafted and come in various shapes, materials, and designs. 

Custom Keepsake Urns

Custom keepsake urns provide an even more personalized touch to commemoration. Each life is unique, and custom keepsake urns acknowledge this diversity. Whether inspired by a hobby, favorite place, or symbol of significance, these urns encapsulate the one-of-a-kind spirit of each individual.

Custom cremation keepsake urns are more than just an urn, they are touchstones for memories. Placing a custom urn in a meaningful spot ensures that your connection with your loved one remains strong. They serve as a testament to the precious moments shared and the impact that person had on those around them.
