My mom just recently lost 2 of her fur babies 60 days apart due to cancer. It’s not the best way to start out a new year, so I decided to look for mementos or keepsakes to buy for my mom to keep Bella and Meela’s spirits alive. Here are some pet memorial gift ideas for 2023.

I love this sculpture and how it reflects the true love between a human and their dog. This is a great gift to give someone who has lost a pet or who just wants a keepsake to remember their pets.
It is a small resin sculpture that fits on the fireplace mantel, a book shelf, nightstand, or even a desk. The resin figure is cast from Susan Lordi’s original carving and hand painted.
According to 8,678 Amazon reviews, Willow Tree Angel of Friendship received 4.9 out of 5 stars. It is also ranks #22 in Collectibles/Figurines.

I have two Willow Tree Figures for my sons, and they are absolutely beautiful. This is definitely a great gift idea!
Manufacturer: The Grandparent Gift Co
Dimensions: 12.5 x 5 x 1.5 inches; 0.16 Ounces
This is a beautiful wind chime that features a paw print at the top of the wind chime and four musical tubes below. The paw print has a sentiment etched on each side.
On one side it reads:
“Life seems quiet without you, you were far more than a pet. You were a family member, a friend, a loving soul I’ll never forget”
The other side reads:
” It will take time to heal, for the silence to go away. I still listen for you, and miss you every day.”
The wind chime is durable and can withstand the hardest elements. You can hang it out on your porch, in your yard, even inside the home, or your pet’s favorite spot. A light breeze will begin a soothing melody to help you remember a lost pet.
If you are giving as a gift, the wind chime comes in a gift box that includes “The Pawprints Left By You” poem by Teri Harrison. This is a beautiful poem that can help convey your message of compassion. (because sometimes, it is hard to find the words to say!)
Amazon reviews show it is a 5 out of 5 star gift; however, the ratings by feature show 4.6 – 4.8 out of 5 stars. It is not much of a difference; however, I thought I would point it out.
It is currently ranked 5,912 in pet supplies and 6th in Dog Memorials & Funerary. There are over 3,000 reviews, and with such a positive ranking, this gift is definitely worth looking into.

Material: Wood (photo holder) and Acrylic
For anyone who has been owned by a cat, knows they leave such an impact on your life. As hard as it is to lose a cat, this gift helps keep their memory / spirit alive.
It is a beautiful piece that can be placed on a mantel, desk, or table…or somewhere special. The acrylic heart has a beautiful rainbow with two famous memorial statements as well as cute little paw prints and a cat figure on a crescent moon.
Beside the acrylic heart is a wood picture holder that will hold your favorite picture of your beloved cat.
It is a new product on the market, so there are not a lot of reviews. The reviews I found were mostly favorable, however, there were a couple that were concerned with the sharp edges of the product which could make it a little more difficult to gift to a friend or family member.
I see how that could be a concern; but the memento is absolutely stunning, and I would definitely display one in my home.

It is hard when your best friend passes over the Rainbow Bridge. How can you keep their memory alive without spending a fortune?
I know this is one of my shorter posts, but I wanted to at least show you some items that may help keep your pet’s spirit alive (or help one of your friends or family) at a reasonable cost.
These 3 items are definitely worth the price and you can find them on Amazon.
You can click on the picture or the link and it will take you to the item of your choosing.
