Ripped clothes, Viagra, letters from STI clinics and even dog poo â€“ these are just some of the things women want to send their cheating chaps.
A leading get-well gift site has been shocked at the bitter responses it has received in response to an email campaign to nominate contents for a â€˜Break-Up Basketâ€™.
â€œWe asked what would they send a friend who had been dumped but lots of seething women added what they would send to the ex,â€ says Lee Percy, co-founder of www.PoorlyPuppy.com.
Broken picture frames, guides to the Karma Sutra, cut-up suits, the suggestions have been coming in thick and fast, says co-founder Cameron Elliott.
â€œI think the worst one we had was from a woman who wanted to send her ex a pickled hamster,â€ says Elliott. â€œHowever, after reading the accompanying explanation we agreed he did deserve it.â€
PoorlyPuppy.com, the UKâ€™s leading get-well gift site, announced the launch of an official hamper to give friends who have been dumped at the start of March.
â€œThe feedback has been enormous,â€ says Percy. â€œSome of the more helpful ideas weâ€™ve had include tissues, bath salts and feminist films.â€
â€œBut thereâ€™s also been the more obscure â€“ such as vibrators, voodoo dolls and vodka.â€
â€œWeâ€™re busy taking suggestions for the Break-Up Basket at the moment,â€ says Elliott. â€œBut who knows, perhaps the Revenge Range of hampers is next.â€
PoorlyPuppy.com is currently seeking advice from women on what songs should be on a compilation CD for broken-hearted babes.
