Make a divorce care basket

Gail Saukas

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) When the going gets tough, most women reach out to their girlfriends for support. Gail Saukus of D.A.W.N., Divorce Attorneys for Women, and WOTV 4 Women legal expert, says friends can step in when divorce happens.

A great way to show your love and support is by making a Divorce Care Basket to give as a gift. Think about your friend and what she might be grateful to receive to help her grieve, cope, and move on. Some ideas include:

  • What would comfort her? A warm cup of great tea, a pillow to hug while she cries her eyes out, a snuggly throw to wrap herself in, a decadent piece of chocolate.
  • What would help her out? An offer to clean her house, do laundry, babysit so she can have a breather.
  • What would take her mind off her troubles? A great paperback, going to a movie or staying in and watching a DVD, a night out with the girls.
  • What would make her feel special and pretty? A new lipstick or balm, a mani-pedi, a facial, a new scarf or some funky earrings.
