I thought we could do better than the prepackaged basket of wine, junk food, and advice books, so I asked what you'd like if you met breakup's misfortune. The rebound fling didn't fit, but here are 10 doable suggestions for every budget below.
- A plane ticket to see a friend
- Yoga class certificate
- A girls' weekend
- Books, particularly chick lit
- A mix CD or playlist
- Salon gift card
- DVD of a good horror movie, "preferably with plenty of young, good-looking men who die horribly"
Would you send a friend a breakup care pack?
