Quick Overview: Gift for Friend Going Through Divorce

DIVORCE GIFT IDEAS FOR A WOMAN

There are a couple of gifts that can uplift her mood and show her how much you care.

1. FERRERO ROCHER CHOCOLATE

Chocolate might not take the pain away but it can make a lady happy and a good box of chocolate like Ferrero Rocher will sure put a smile on her face.You can have it delivered to her office with flowers or take it along with you while visiting. Whichever way you choose to give her this box of chocolate, it will make a nice gift. What’s more beautiful about this chocolate is its packaging; absolutely gorgeous.

Pros.

  • Delicious
  • Peanut free (incase she is allergic to peanut)
  • Well package; the gold foils are beautiful
  • Value for money

Cons.

  • A few customers were not happy about the condition of the package when it arrived. While the company that sells it has gone an extra mile in adding sealed ice cubes to the package, it still depends on how the box is handled during delivery.

This chocolate is great. It is not surprising that a lot of customers love it and highly rate it.

2. ROSE TEDDY BEAR

Another cute gift you can get alongside a box of chocolate will be this Rose teddy bear. Roses in the form of a teddy is a stunning combination and will definitely make a good gift. We can almost imagine her making the cute puppy face while picking up this gift. This Rose teddy comes in different sizes and we think the 16inch will be nice. The bigger the better.

Pros.

  • Beautiful; a few customers noted that this teddy looks more beautiful in person than on the ad.
  • It is a combination of two lovely gifts a lady would love (rose and teddy)
  • Well packaged
  • Has a warranty; the company is willing to refund if you are not happy with your purchase

Cons.

  • It would be nice if the roses were firmer on the teddy since a few customers complained that some of the roses came off. It is definitely not an everyday cuddle buddy.

What most customers loved about this teddy is the beauty. They also considered it giftable.

3. INSPIRATIONAL BANGLE

Sometimes you may not know what to say to comfort your friend and you may also feel like she has heard what you have to say multiple times from different people. You can let this beautiful piece of jewelry do the talking for you. On one of these two-piece bangles is a pendent with “this too shall pass” message. These words are so comforting. We think it will make an amazing gift. The crystal bracelet is really cute.

Pros.

  • Elegant
  • The quote is beautifully engraved
  • It comes in a gift box
  • It looks sturdy

Cons.

  • It will look cute on a small to medium wrist; we are not sure about bigger wrists
  • Since customers are yet to purchase this bangle, we are uncertain about its durability.

It is a unique piece worth getting for your friend.

4. INSPIRATIONAL NECKLACE

We think this necklace is another good piece of jewelry worth getting. It carries the same engraved words “this too shall pass” on the pendant. The semicolon design within the pendant is really cute and it’s been adorned with crystal stones around it.

Pros.

  • Stunning
  • The quote is beautifully engraved on the pendant

You may be wondering why a sports shoe made it to our list. Exercising is a good way of destressing. Divorce can be so stressful that a person sometimes forgets to look after their health and general well being. It would be nice if these sports shoes were delivered with a note like “Pick a date, let’s go jogging or see you Saturday morning, we are going for a jog”; it will mean a lot to your friend.
