21 Gifts For Getting Through A Breakup

Catharsis is important. Whether you’ve just been dumped or it’s happened to someone you know, this stuff is way more effective than ice cream and tears.

1. Order a custom piñata of the ex’s face.

2. Or customize a dartboard.


3. Or a voodoo doll.

That’s Carol. Hi Carol. Available from YouDooDoll.
