When choosing an urn for loved one, most of us will settle on something that’s traditional.
But what if they were a bit of character?
Or did they have a particular passion or interest which defined them?
If so, a Custom Urn might be the perfect memorial to remember their spirit.
Below you’ll find a list of some our favorite unique urns on the market.
What is a custom urn?
A custom urn is a non-traditional urn that is chosen specifically to honor a particular personality.
They can represent qualities you cherished, such as a big heart, or interests that were important to the person.
A heart represents emotional energy that lives on after the physical body has passed away.
It also symbolizes affection and the bond that you shared with your loved one.
That’s why a heart-shaped urn can be a wonderful way to honor someone you loved.
Here are some that we love.
