Breakup Gift Basket With Il Bastardo Wine, Snacks

What Would You Want in a Breakup Gift Basket?

Don't want to show up at a divorce party empty-handed? Behold the breakup gift basket! Yes, someone has actually made this: the Il Bastardo Breakup Wine Gift Basket could be yours or your forlorn friend's for just $55.

The breakup basket comes filled with a bottle of Il Bastardo wine (clever!), lots of pig-out-worthy snacks (questionable), and a book called Quickie Stickies: 100 Pick-Me-Ups for When You're Feeling Unglued.

Though I doubt I'll be buying this particular item, I am totally making a breakup care package next time one of my friends gets dumped. A bottle of booze would be a no-brainer, and I'd also probably throw in a gift certificate for a massage, some guilty pleasure DVDs, and maybe a movie that's neither romantic nor depressing but has a good breakup-related message, like (500) Days of Summer. What would you want in a breakup gift basket? Chocolate? A mix of sad songs? Sex toys? Chime in below, and we'll see if we can do better than this basket.

Eat, Pray, Love is a good novel to include.

A vibrator. Haha! Just kidding!! Maybe a workout video to distract me, chocolate, and a good friend with a shoulder to cry on.

Mike's Hard Lemonade (cranberry flavor), Lindt creamy chocolate balls, a DVD of a good horror movie (preferably with plenty of young, good looking men who die horribly), and a great paperback novel. (Depending on your tastes, Janet Evanovich, Tim Dorsey and Christopher Moore come to mind. They're all wonderfully distractingly funny.)

Most people have said alcohol, but from personal experience, all it did for me was make me feel even more depressed. In my basket I would want chocolate/candy, movie gift card, hair salon gift card, books, and cigarettes (I only smoke when I drink or when I'm feeling down in the dumps).

wine and girl time. I think just the fact that you are willing to sit there, listen, do nothing, or do whatever is what your lady friends need most.

I'd want a plane ticket to visit a friend or, better yet, a girls' weekend. Cigarettes and alcohol would also be welcome, along with a mix CD.

Alcohol. And compliments. But mostly alcohol.

booze, chocolate, a good chick lit book, a gift certificate to go on a trip with my girls, and a baseball bat.

Ha I actually like the Bastardo Sangiovese. Yoga class certificates, legally blonde ( the BEST post breakup movie), a couple canvases, and a usb port loaded with new music.
