Everyone from Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons to Karen Carpenter and Gloria Estefan have sung this popular sentiment: “Breaking up is hard to do.” And we couldn't agree more. Whether it’s mutual or results in a broken heart, the end of a relationship is never easy. It’s a time of grief and mourning for what could have been.
The period surrounding any breakup is always full of emotional ups and downs, and requires plenty of self-care and TLC. Whether you’re going through a breakup or divorce of your own, or you’re watching your best friend, sister, or any loved one suffering the aftermath, a monthly gift box can act as an instant pick-me-up to show them that this time of heartache will eventually pass.
With subscription boxes that celebrate newfound single status, provide a much-needed laugh, or send some sweet treats, the Cratejoy Marketplace has so many breakup care packages to choose from. Here are 15 of our top breakup boxes to help heal the broken-hearted.
