Few things hurt in life like a breakup and in the words of the immortal song by Al Green ‘How Can You Mend a Broken Heart?’ we’ve noticed a trend of sending breakup gifts for friends.
A thoughtful care package can help to ease the pain and heartache of lost love, so keep reading for some ideas on the best gifts for a breakup.
1. Bath Salts
Help her to feel calm on the inside with a relaxing bath that includes bath salts. Our pick is a luxurious bath soak made with four salt varieties and seaweed extract.
The blend of Eucalyptus, Peppermint and Spearmint Essential Oils uplifts the mind and helps to detox the body.
2. Mindfulness Journal
Her feelings and emotions will be on a rollercoaster so help her to remain centred with a mindfulness journal that encourages her to practice wellness.
3. Lapcos Sheet Mask
Soothe the skin with an aloe sheet mask. This one contains aloe leaf and cucumber fruit extract to help skin retain moisture for a soft, hydrated appearance.
Chocolate (or ice cream!) is always a good idea an we’ve got three different varieties from organic makers Le chocolate des Francais to choose from:
- Plain milk
- Milk with hazelnuts
Shower her with sugar to show her how sweet she is to you!
