  • Spurned women want to send exes collection of bitter gifts ranging from the bizarre to bonkers

    Being dumped is always pretty hard to handle – who hasn’t fantasised about scratching their ex’s car or signing them up for endless junk mail?

    But one website has been overwhelmed by bitter suggestions for a break-up ‘gift’ basket.

    Cut-up clothes, dog poo, letters from STI clinics and even pickled pets made it onto the list of vengeful gifts women wanted to send to former lovers.

    Digs at sexual performance also made it into the basket, with copies of the Karma Sutra and bottles of Viagra tablets.

    ‘We asked women what they would send a friend who had been dumped but instead, lots of seething women added what they would send to their ex,’ said Lee Percy from Poorly Puppy.

    One suggestion left the gift basket company astounded.

    ‘I think the worst one we had was from a woman who wanted to send her ex a pickled hamster,’ said partner Cameron Elliot.

    ‘However, after reading the accompanying explanation we agreed he did deserve it.’

    The company normally creates gift baskets to send to friends or relatives in hospital.

    They decided to branch out into sympathy baskets for those who had been dumped, but were instead flooded with suggestions for ‘revenge‘ hampers.

    Lee says the company are still planning break-up baskets for lovelorn friends.

    ‘Some of the more helpful ideas include tissues, bath salts and feminist films. But there’s also been the more obscure – such as vibrators, voodoo dolls and vodka,’ he added.

    Next on the company’s ideas list is a compilation CD for broken-hearted babes.
