If you are looking for gifts for a broken hearted friend, I have a few ideas that your friend will love. I’ve seen many of my lovely gal pals go through misery trying to forget about a guy they once loved. One of the best ways to help her through this gut-wrenching event in her life is to find a gift that will make her smile. When you are trying to come up with a few gifts for a broken hearted friend, think of her personality and the things that she likes. Ladies, below I’m going to reveal 7 awesome gifts that will help your friend mend her broken heart.
1. Burn a Single Girl Rocks CD
One of the most thoughtful gifts I received after a devastating breakup was a CD from my best friend. It had really great girl-empowering songs like "All the Single Ladies" by Beyonce, "A Little Bit Stronger" by Sara Evans, "Part of Me" by Katy Perry and "Stronger" by Kelly Clarkson. This is one of the best gifts for a broken hearted friend because she can escape through the lyrics. A pretty card that says that there are better times ahead is the finishing touch for this gift.
2. Gift Certificate to the Mall
Anyone with a broken heart can do with a bit of retail therapy to lift their spirits. Purchase a gift certificate to her favorite store at the mall. Take her on a shopping trip so she can find the perfect item like a cuddly sweater, funky boots or a cool skirt. Or buy a matching piece of jewelry such as a necklace of her favorite animal or a charm bracelet.
3. Gift Certificate to the Beauty Store
If money is tight for a mall purchase, give her a gift certificate to her favorite beauty store. Pick up a few nail polishes for fingers and toes. Encourage her to choose bright colors like hot pink, electric blue, or lime green instead of dark colors because colors can impact our moods more than we know. Spend the day giving each other home manicures and pedicures. This will give her the chance to express how she is feeling about the breakup.
4. Girls Night out
Gather all your girl friends together and hit the town all dressed up. A girl’s night out is a good idea because it will help your friend take her mind off of the breakup. If she is anything like my friends, her latest attire choices have been sweatpants and a baseball cap which is not exactly uplifting attire. Giving her the chance to get all dressed up will help boost her self-confidence when she sees herself all prettified. She might even meet a cute guy that can ease the pain of her bruised heart.
5. Give Her a Scrapbook
A scrapbook made using her favorite colors is another great gift idea. Place items like funny sayings, inspirational poems, girl-empowering sayings, favorite quotes and anything that will remind her of inside jokes shared between the two of you. Print out a few funny pics and add them to the scrapbook too. List the reasons why you love her and your favorite memories with her. She will treasure this sentimental gift from you long after she is over her breakup stage.
6. Pampering Gifts
Every girl needs to be pampered after going through an awful mental war like a breakup. Give her the opportunity to rejuvenate her body and mind as well as reclaim happiness with a gift certificate to the spa. Or give her a gift basket with all kinds of spa goodies like plush slippers, her favorite body lotion, body soaps and aromatherapy candles. Finish your gift basket with some of her favorite magazines or a book from her favorite author.
7. Weekend Getaway
Sometimes a girl needs to get away from it all and a breakup is one of those times. Invite her to a weekend getaway so she can escape from her most likely breakup routine of overdosing on ice cream and watching sad movies. A mini vacation away from her apartment can help her forget some of the emotional turmoil from the breakup because It gives her something else to focus on. A temporary break from her normal surroundings even if its just to a hotel will help her feel that there is more to life than the guy she lost.
Regardless of the gift that you choose for your brokenhearted friend, the most important one is to be there for her. Your friend is going to feel like her world shattered into a million pieces especially if it was a long-term relationship. Be there to help her put her life together again because she needs her friends now more than ever. Girls, do you have any other gift ideas for a brokenhearted friend?
