You might want to put together a gift basket for a person who has just lost someone they love. This will last longer than flowers, won't require watering (which a grief stricken person may be too overwhelmed to do), and won't be added to the list of things that died. They can use these items after visitors taper off.
You can use a basic basket (if you think they won't keep it) or tin, line it with a pretty dish towel, close it up with colored saran wrap (available at the grocery store), and tie it closed at the top with a bow.
Here are some ideas on what you might want to include. If you make one yourself, you can personalize it, and it will cost a lot less. You don't need to go crazy - it's the thought that counts.
