Debenhams,the 232-year-old British department store retailer, has broken new ground in the “gift registry” business and has launched what is thought to be the UK’s first ‘divorce gift list’ for couples ending the marital relationship.

The Telegraph newspaper reports that sales of greeting cards such as ‘congratulations on your divorce’ have been growing rapidly in Britain and that divorce celebration parties have been made popular by high profile celebrities.
Debenhams expects their new service to help newly separated and divorced individuals “start their new lives.”
