Stamps: A Thoughtful Gift For Recently Bereaved

This is not a money saving tip or a 'green' one. When my sister's husband, an avid grower of beautiful roses, passed away several years ago, I purchased several books of commemorative postage stamps with roses. She was able to use them for the notes one is expected to send at a time of bereavement. She was moved to tears when she saw what I had done. This would be a good alternative to flowers or all the food which may or may not be eaten.

It is the very thoughtful acts like that one that let a person know you really are thinking of them, not just going through the motions.
