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.
- Peanut free (incase she is allergic to peanut)
- Well package; the gold foils are beautiful
- Value for money
- 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.
- 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
- 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.
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.
It has a lot of positive reviews. Customers that bought this necklace were impressed with its quality.
5. STRONGER THAN YESTERDAY T-SHIRT
This t-shirt will make a good gift for a newly divorced friend. The words “Stronger than yesterday” is encouraging and it also sends the message of hope. It is another way of telling her that she does not look like what she’s been through. This t-shirt is a blend of cotton and other materials. It is light and comfortable and the message on the shirt is worth rocking any day.
Most customers that bought the shirt were impressed with the quality.
6. CONGRAT MUG
The quote on this mug is petty but it is a funny way of showing support to your friend. If you are looking for a funny gift for a friend going through a divorce, you should grab this mug; your friend will love it. It is a 16oz cup with blue interior and white exterior.
This mug is highly rated and highly recommend by a lot of customers
7. SHE TOOK A DEEP BREATH KEY CHAIN
In case you are trying to organize a gift box for her, it will be lovely to throw in this keychain. The quote is really encouraging. It speaks on overcoming or triumphing after making a life changing decision; it speaks of an emotionally strong woman. It is worth having and would make a sentimental gift.
It is a beautiful keychain.
8. NIKE SPORT SHOES
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. These Nike shoes have been built for comfort and speed; perfect for exercise. We think that she will absolutely love this sportswear.
This is quality sportswear. Most customers love it although a few complained of it being small or for slim feet.
9. MAKEUP KIT
There are many beauty items you can get for her and this Sephora eye-shadow collection is one. Eye-shadows are a safe makeup item you can get for a lady since ladies tend to be particular with powder and foundation brands. Getting her this eyeshadow kit is one way of telling her that she should not stop looking beautiful and that she should keep taking good care of herself. What’s so great about this Sephora eye-shadow kit is that it comes with almost all shades and texture of eye-shadows you can find (109 eye-shadows). She will love this. Don’t forget to throw in a little card with words of encouragement if you can.
This eye-shadow kit has a high rating for traveling, longevity, value for money, giftable and packaging. The reviews are great.
10. SPA GIFT BASKET
After the stress of divorce, she deserves to be pampered. Getting her this Lovery cherry blossom home spa basket will do a lot of good to her skin. It includes two extra-large bath bombs, a well-fragranced bubble bath, bath salt, shower gel and body butter. These products are rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids.
What most customers love about this gift basket are; the presentation and fragrance.
11. MAKEUP MIRROR
Another funny gift you can get a newly divorced woman is this makeup mirror. The inscribed words are hilarious but encouraging if she is not too sensitive to swear words. She would mostly laugh or pat herself whenever she picks up this mirror to use. The case is gorgeous and the size is perfect.
This makeup mirror has a high rating for features such as giftable and quality. Customers love it.
DIVORCE GIFT IDEAS FOR A MAN
Quite often, more consideration is being given to ladies than men during and after a divorce. Sadly, they go through similar hurt and emotional rollercoasters. Showing massive help can really go a long in helping him heal. Here are a few gift ideas you can get for him.
12. OUTTA MARRIAGE MUG
This Straight Outta Marriage mug is a cute gift. The message is funny but you may need to have a certain level of friendship with him to pull off the mug joke. You do not want him thinking that you are mocking his current situation. It is a funny divorce gift for a guy especially if he is coming out from an abusive relationship. This is a 15oz black and white mug.
The size is great, the words are funny and the color combination is perfect.
13. AUDIO TECHNICA AT-LP120X
You might be wondering what this TT is doing in this list. Some people say, good music heals the soul and it is true for a lot of people. A lot of guys do have a thing for music and it is not surprising that they spend on quality gadgets. If your friend who is recently divorced loves music, switch things up for him. He will not be expecting this classic music player but he will be thrilled getting it. You can also throw in one or two classic records, it will be a mind-blowing experience.

14. GROOMING KIT
Self-care is equally important for men going through a divorce. It’s quite easy to forget oneself when trying to salvage what they have/had with their partner. Some men begin to look older, leaner and unkempt. It would be nice to look out for your friend during such a difficult period. We think that getting him this grooming kit is great. The kit comes with a beard shampoo, balm, beard oil, comb, brush, stainless steel scissors, beard e-book and a storage bag.

The box comprises 30 healthy snacks; a veggie straw pack, 1 Zee Zee’s bar, 2 Zee Zee Graham, 1 NV Oat and Honey, 1 Fig tree bar, 3 peanut butter crackers, 2 Pirate’s booty and many more.

This 7 rule motivational wall art is perfect for a friend going through a divorce or is currently divorce. The first quote reads “Let it go; never ruin a good day thinking about a bad yesterday” and the third quote reads “Give it time; time heals everything”. These are encouraging quotes and7 are just fantastic. It would be nice to wake up each morning and remind oneself of them. It will also be nice if you buy it, frame it and give it to him as a gift.

18. SARCASTIC T-SHIRT
This t-shirt is really funny and quite petty but will make a good divorce gift. The quote reads “Some people just needed a pat on the back” with an image showing a character pushing another character off a cliff. He will laugh over this but it may also depend on the situation that led to the divorce. If it is too sensitive for him, I doubt he may take it in a good light.
