A casket doesn't have to be a boring metal or wooden box. Theme caskets are available in many forms. Select a casket that says something about the life or interests of the person who has passed away.
Some theme caskets are simply a traditional casket decorated in a way appropriate to the deceased. They come with golf, racing, military, professional, nature or religious scenes to name a few. There are also humorous ones such as one painted like a delivery box that says, "Return to Sender."
Other theme caskets are more specialize and can be made in almost any shape or form. They are custom made in the shape of boats, cars or just about anything that can be imagined. This type of casket can be very expensive and construction takes time. They work out best when purchased for pre-need or when the funeral can be delayed for at least a week or more.
