Gift Guide #4: For The Recent Divorcée

So much classier than voodoo dolls

24K Four Leaf Clover Print ($27)

If you Google gifts for the recently divorced, there are all kinds of gauche suggestions like voodoo dolls and knife blocks shaped like screaming men. Don’t be that person. Don’t. Where on earth is someone going to wear a t-shirt that says, “I’m not with stupid anymore?” Here are some classier suggestions. As a recent divorcée myself—in spirit if not legally—these are all things I would love to receive. (Also, while I have you here, I think we should take back the word divorcée. It’s kind of fabulous, no?)

ONE Lenox Tuscany Classics 10-Ounce Martini Glasses, because obviously. (Set of four $39.99)

TWO Some of the best advice I’ve ever received is not to fear loneliness; instead, pour it a cup of tea. Chevron Tea for One Set ($38)

THREE Try to find a new spa treat she hasn’t tried, like a float. If all else fails, a massage is great, too. Salt Water Float at FLO2S Atlanta ($75)

FOUR Chocolate is a cliché, but it’s a cliché that I found myself eating in large quantities. Make sure it’s something fancy that you can’t find everywhere. Grasshopper Pie Chocolate Bar ($5 each)

FIVE The beverage that loosened my tongue about my marriage troubles. Smirnoff Fluffed Marshmallow Vodka ($13.99)

SIX Know when to fold ’em. The Gambler Necklace ($40)

SEVEN If you want to be practical, find something that she lost in the division of stuff and buy her a replacement. Mikasa Ikat Blue Dinnerware Set ($199; on sale for $109.99)

TOP PHOTO For remembering how lucky she is, and how lucky she will be. 24K Gold Four Leaf Clover Print ($27)
