In general, both caskets and coffins are specialised, and often decorative, boxes used to hold the body of a deceased person. Both can be made from a variety of materials and can be done both elaborately or simply, depending on the style, budget and tastes of the person using them. The primary difference is in the shape and price-point of the two options. Caskets are generally rectangular in shape, while caskets have six sides and are wider along the top portion. This is not just a style choice but is also done to save on materials because the lower portion is more narrow.
There is really no wrong choice when it comes time to make a decision. Your preference, the preference of your loved one, your budget, and the theme or tone of the funeral will all factor into your decision.
