Can you imagine that I actually am friends with a funeral director? I’ve even had the pleasure of walking through a crematorium at a funeral home while hanging out with her. Of course, if you’re looking for gift ideas for funeral directors specifically, you probably want something themed.
Creative Gift Ideas for Funeral Directors
So for this list, I pulled together a collection of unique and interesting gift ideas for funeral directors that are related to their very unique, and sometimes morbid, profession. In many places, funeral directors are also undertakers or morticians, so those gifts are included as well.
Last Responder Keychain
Instead of the usual “first responder” gear, this “last responder” keychain has a hearse on it. Perfect keychain for the work vehicle.
Confessions of a Funeral Director Book
It’s nice to read something that you can relate to. This Confessions of a Funeral Director book was written by a sixth-generation funeral director.
People are Dying to Work With Me Mug
Well, it’s true! This funny travel mug is a great gift idea for funeral directors who have a sense of humor.
Look Better Embalmed Tote
Do you happen to be shopping for a bit of an antisocial funeral director? This tote is perfect for an embalmer, mortician, undertaker, or funeral director.
Horse Drawn Hearse Photo
This vintage hearse photo would look great in the office or home of a funeral director. What’s so cool about it is it’s an original antique photo, not a print.
You Get Smoke in Your Eyes Book
This book is part memoir, part gruesome history lesson. Even if they don’t handle cremation, funeral directors will love this somewhat morbid book.
Be Nice to Me Mug
Sometimes it’s a good thing to remind people what it is you do for a living. Especially when it comes to the person who may be facilitating the celebration of your life.
On Call Shirt
A funny shirt to wear to work when they’re not actually at a service.
If you’re looking for gift ideas for funeral directors that are tamer (and less morbid) this cute snow globe is a good choice. You can even have it personalized!
My Other Ride Decal
So everyone knows that even when they’re driving their regular car they also get to drive a really fancy one.
Funeral Themed Handbag
So funeral directors (or their assistants) can class it up while still showing off what they’re passionate about tombs, urns, and graves.
Will Embalm For Wine Shirt
Make it a good bottle, though. Funny gift for morticians and embalmers.
Embalming Fluid Mug
It’s a joke, right? RIGHT?!
From Here to Eternity Book
I included this one not because it’s for funeral directors, but because of their constant interaction with death. This book is a must-read.
Undertaker and Embalmer Shirt
This shirt has a cool antique undertaker design on it and vintage-style writing.
Hearse Lapel Pin
This enamel lapel pin is high quality and a perfect accessory for a funeral director.
Field Notes From a Funeral Director
A funny, related book from a fellow funeral director. This would also be a great gift for someone who’s just starting out or learning to be a funeral director.
Embellished Coffin Jewelry/Trinket Box
This coffin-shaped trinket box is perfect for keeping jewelry or other items.
Stainless Steel Brushed Tie Clip Bar
This stylish tie clip will go great with any funeral directors’ suit. Plus, you can personalize it too.
8oz Gold Flask For Liquor
After a rough day, a refreshing drink can be just what you need.
I’m sure you’re just dying to give one of these gift ideas for funeral directors away.
