A divorce can be an emotional and life-changing event. Healing from a divorce often takes time and the support of close friends and family. Finding a cheeky gift for a recently divorced friend or family member can be a challenge. Give a gift that is light-hearted and fun, or something that will be useful in the person’s newly single life. Using humor to lift someone from the thralls of divorce is the best remedy.
Surrounding yourself with close friends during and after a divorce plays a huge role in emotional recovery. Plan a weekend getaway with friends at a bed and breakfast within driving range. The new surroundings can signify a new beginning, and sharing laughs with trusted friends will no doubt brighten everyone’s mood.
Single, Ready to Mingle, Wine Gift
Decorate a wine glass with a catchy saying or design that offers cheers to a new life. Wine charms are another clever way to personalize wine, martini or champagne glasses. These are tiny individual ornaments on wire loops that fasten to a wine glass stem. Not only are wine charms a decorative touch but they also help people keep track of their glass. Put the glasses and wine charms together with a bottle or two of wine to create a thoughtful gift basket.
Divorce Care Package
Create a gift basket for a recently divorced friend with a theme such as: Eat, Drink and be Unmarried. Fill it with gourmet snacks, humorous shot glasses, wine and cheese, a compact mirror, a pre-paid massage certificate, Thelma and Louise luggage tags, or any other small gifts that will get a laugh.
Find an exercise class in your area and purchase a gift certificate for the classes. It is a great way to spend time with your divorced friend, doing something rejuvenating and fun. Instead of giving a self-improvement book, opt for a self-improvement activity: Yoga classes for women or a personal trainer package for men.
Give the gift that keeps giving, such as a year-round gift subscription. Purchase a Netflix gift subscription for the movie-lover, the New York Times for the intellectual, magazine subscriptions for women or a beer-of-the-month membership for men.
