Remind someone they're loved by showing them you care after they suffer a breakup. Cheese Brothers has breakup care package options for friends, guys, or anyone else going through a tough time.


The divorce rate in the U.S. is one of the highest in the world. Approximately 35% to 50% of first-time marriages end in divorce. Poor communication, waning emotional connection, money woes, and infidelity lead many couples to call it quits. Age also plays a factor in divorce rates. Couples who get married between the ages of 20 to 25 years are 60% more likely to get a divorce, than couples who wait to tie the knot until they’re older. Couples who wait until they are at least 25 years old to get married are 24% less likely to get a divorce, according to the World Population Review. 

I Will Survive

Going through a divorce or even simply ending a relationship is devastating. If you are friends with a person going through a rough breakup, finding a way to help can be difficult. Here are a few suggestions to help your friend survive their breakup.

  • Send a breakup care package.If you want to do something special for your friend, send them a care package with snacks and goodies to make them smile. Cheese Brothers offer boxes of cheese that can be eaten directly from the box or stored in the refrigerator for a better time, making them an ideal breakup care package. We offer high-quality, all-natural Wisconsin cheeses. We’ve got classic flavors and unique new options to tempt your taste buds. 

We recommend sending a Wisconsin Sampler Pack, which includes four 6-ounce blocks of Wisconsin cheese, such as Dill Havarti, smoked Gouda, Fratello, and Honey Sriracha Gouda. Our Deluxe Charcuterie Pack has all of the ingredients for a beautiful and tasty cheese board. It is packed with 10 Wisconsin cheese varieties, gourmet meats, and handmade artisan treats. We have a variety of cheese and jam pairings to enjoy.

Depending on your friend’s interests, sending a care package with beach reads, wellness products, or gardening items are also great suggestions.

  • Check in. Be sure to check in with your friend on a regular basis. Provide them with a listening ear or just be a sounding board so they can vent. Make sure not to bad mouth their ex and avoid providing advice. Most people going through a hard time simply need a shoulder to cry on when they are feeling low.
  • Go outside.Being in nature helps improve your mood and outlook. People who suffer a breakup can feel isolated and alone. Spending time in nature can stress, anger, and fear, according to research from the University of Minnesota’s Earl E Bakken Center for Spirituality & Healing. Nature can improve your emotional outlook and physical health. Call your friend and make time to take a hike, play a round of golf, or enjoy a picnic in the park. If eating on a blanket is not your friend’s idea of a good time, book a reservation at a restaurant with an outdoor patio or beautiful view.
  • Volunteer together.Donating time to a valuable cause can help get your friend’s mind off their own trouble. Schedule time to volunteer with your friend. Medical research suggests volunteering can help reduce depression and increase positivity, according to the Mayo Clinic Health System. Serve dinner at a local homeless shelter, collect supplies for women escaping violent relationships, or donate blood together.

Nothing Compares 2 U

If sending a savory gift is the way you show you care, Cheese Brothers makes it easy to ship our cheeses to destinations across the United States, and orders are generally shipped within one to three business days of receipt. Our vacuum-sealed hard cheeses are safe for long periods in transit under a variety of conditions and temperatures, take a look here at our featured cheese products. If temperatures are at or below 60 degrees in your location, our cheese will arrive safely and in good condition without ice packs. If temperatures are above 60 degrees, we ship in an insulated box with ice packs to prevent melting.

Shop cheese and gift bundles to find the perfect selection. Getting a box of cheese delivered to their doorstep will put a smile on your friend’s face and satisfy their taste buds when they want a snack.
