When I saw the title, I thought you were sending a celebratory gift…I was a bit alarmed!  Glad to see I jumped to the wrong conclusion!

What about taking her out for a massage?  No doubt she’s stressed out and could use some quiet, relaxing time!

Have her over for dinner & drinks- let her vent until her heart’s content!  She probably just needs a friend and a shoulder to cry on right now.  You’re so sweet to think of her 🙂

@puddingpop:  Do you live close enough to take her out for a girls day?

Maybe mani/pedis followed by some martinis and fun appetizers. 

Or if you can’t do something with her then maybe a nice spa day and bottle of wine.

I second the bottle of wine.  My friends got together and helped me clean out my ex’s junk and brought over beer and mike’s and wine and we made a pretty good party out of it except for the like three times that I broke down bawling.  It was really nice to have them with me when I was getting rid of his things, they were a good distraction and a good “Yep, throw it out.  No, really, throw it out.”

But that was just me.  I’m sure some people want to do that alone, some people don’t need to clean anything out, etc.  It was just really good knowing I had good friends who supported me and that I wasn’t alone.  I think if you get a gift, a gift that can be shared on the spot like a bottle of wine and a good movie or a spa day would be really nice.

Spa treatment or taking her out for a nice dinner and some drinks is nice. I’m sure whatever you decide, she’ll be touched and appreciative.

I agree with taking her out…maybe apps/cocktails & a pedi or something. If it were me, I would probably want some company.

If you’re not nearby, maybe a bottle of wine and a GC that she coudl possibly use with an in town friend.

A friend of mine recently got a divorce and threw a “re-bachelorette” party. When sombeody handed her a gift, she said “Is that a new boyfriend? because I could really use one right now!”

LOL. she’s too funny.

but seriously: I love your idea of a spa gift certificate! I’d say offer to go with her. More than anything, my guess is that she needs friends to spend time with right now.

My friends threw me a party which was basically a redo of my bachlorette party with the addition of a bonfire.  That being said:  I can not endorse a mixture of alcohol and fire.  Rarely does anything good come of that.
