If there’s one thing everyone does during a breakup, it’s spending a lot of time lounging around the house in various states of undress. Help your friend keep warm and fashionable with a superhero snuggie. It’ll help them feel like a boss even at their worst.
Once your friend is all cried out, tired of being angry and well-rested, there begins a weird phase of looking back on the past shitty relationship with nostalgia. This is the time when they’re most likely to text or call the jerk of an ex.
Prevent this from happening with a poster they can frame on their bedroom wall should they ever feel the temptation to go back to what caused them so much recent misery.
By now, your friend is reasonably sane again and possibly ready for some practical advice. Getting Past Your Breakup is one of the best ever written on this topic and it covers everything from how to work through all the emotional shittiness of a failed relationship to how to channel the misery into better relationships for the future.
