Recently dumped? ‘Heartbreak Hamper’ Fills Valentine’s Day Void

Yellow Octopus

Quirky Gift Retailer Launches Hilarious Survival Kit for the Newly Fingle

Valentine’s Day is often a cringeworthy affair for the single community, but for the newly single it can be downright depressing. Which is why Yellow Octopus today releases the ‘Heartbreak Hamper’ - a box full of goodies aimed to cheer you up and get you through the veritable breakup firestorm that is Valentine’s Day. 

Like most hampers it comes in a nice box, but that is where the similarities end. This is no sugar coated cashew nut and quince paste commodity. The Heartbreak Hamper is a professionally designed breakup survival kit. It includes scientifically proven breakup antidotes and pragmatic emergency necessities, not gourmet nibbles and shower gel. 

Retailing for $49.99, the Heartbreak Hamper includes a bottle of Pour Decisions Chardonnay, a single wine glass, a bar of Bellaberry 'Emotional Rescue' Chocolate, Premium 2-Ply Cry Tissues from Kleenex, A Sensational Inflatables – Instant Date (Boyfriend or Girlfriend) and your choice of either a Lifesaver Vibrator for the girls or a Weener Kleener soap for the boys.
This tongue-in-cheek hamper released in time for Valentine’s Day is aimed at friends of recent 'dumpees' looking to cheer up their mates on what can ordinarily be a tough day for the newly single.

The ‘Heartbreak Hamper’ will be the first in a line of novelty hampers to be released by quirky gifts and gadgets retailer Yellow Octopus.

“Most hampers are pretty predictable, and we’re looking to mix things up a bit. Create some hampers for those unexpected moments and bring a sense of humour to a traditionally stilted space," Says Founder Derek Sheen

Come February 14th, don your dressing gown, warm up your Netflix account and have your ‘Heartbreak Hamper’ at the ready. It's time to take on Valentine's Day.
