The typical idea once a relationship ends is for both individuals to simply go their own way and never speak again, which is especially true with younger love birds (under 30). But, I am standing (well, sitting) here today to say that it shouldn’t be that way and there are ways to connect with your ex-girlfriend on a friendly level.
In particular, sending your ex a unique, thoughtful present is an excellent way to reconnect as a friend — not a boyfriend. The goal is not to buy your ex-girlfriend back with a present, it’s to simply show her that you are there for her as a friend and nothing more.
My reason for suggesting that the gift be sent as opposed to given in person is twofold. For one, receiving a random gift from an old friend in the mail is exciting and will make most anyone happy. Secondly, the last thing you want is an awkward situation and showing up to your ex-girlfriend’s home or work is not the best idea.
