In some cultures, gravesites are cherished places where the living can continue to honor the dead. Most commonly, flowers, candles, and stuffed animals are left behind as symbols of love, respect, and admiration. These gifts are a way for people to feel connected with the deceased and to help their spirit live on.

These strange grave gifts often have fascinating tales tied to the deceased figure's history, and provide some insight into their lasting impact on people.
