It's hard to know the right words to say to a friend after a breakup. Time might be the only thing that really allows them to heal, but there are other ways you can help ease their pain, even if you don't have any consolation or advice to offer. Actions speak louder than words, and sometimes, a post-breakup present is more meaningful than saying, "They didn't deserve you," or "I'm sure you'll feel better soon." If you need ideas for gifts to give your friend after her breakup, I've got a few suggestions that are sure to make her feel loved.
Maybe you want to give your BFF a present that will help her feel empowered and strong. Maybe you want to give her something that will just help her feel cozy while watching post-breakup movies. No matter your budget or what stage of grief your BFF is in, I've rounded up some gift ideas that will brighten any newly single person's day.
Don't get me wrong — a sweet card, thoughtful compliment, or kind gesture can mean just as much as a store-bought gift. But if you have the means to spoil your heartbroken babe, these presents might help them temporarily forget that undeserving ex.
