We all know that February 14th is a time to celebrate romance, but don’t forget to save February 13th–a.k.a. “Galentine’s Day”–for celebrating your female friends. First introduced by the unforgettable Leslie Knope (played by Amy Poehler on “Parks and Recreation”), Galentine’s Day has become an essential occasion for besties everywhere. Below are some fabulous Galentine’s Day gifts to help you show your love and appreciation for the BFFs, sisters, moms, and other special ladies in your life.
- “Chic-Sketchify” One of Their Photos
If one of your besties has a penchant for posting outfits on Instagram that are worthy of a double-take, send them a personalized fashion illustration of their latest #OOTD via the Chic Sketch smartphone app. With just a few swipes, you can transform their latest look into a highly grammable custom fashion sketch.
- A Fabulous Phone Case
Let’s face it–you can never have too many bejeweled, besparkled or otherwise bedecked phone cases in your collection. Once you’ve covertly confirmed the make and model of your bestie’s smartphone, surprise her with a fabulous phone case.
Greater love hath no friend than the one who will give you chocolate on a special occasion. Chocolate is truly the one gift that has no downside, so why not treat your girlfriend(s) to a nice assortment of gourmet chocolates for Galentine’s Day? It doesn’t have to be expensive, either–for example, Macy’s has a beautifully packaged and very reasonably priced box of Godiva chocolates that is sure to put a smile on your favorite gal pal’s face.
- A Handmade Galentine’s Day Card
Whether delivered by mail or in person, a Galentine’s Day card is always a great way to show some love to your favorite female friends. If you can’t find one at Hallmark that says it just right, why not craft your own?
- Scented Candles
Give the gift of fragrance-laden relaxation with a scented candle (or two). Bath and Body Works has a divine collection of scented 3-wick candles to choose from.
- Cute Print Socks
There’s no such thing as having too many snazzy socks, so you really can’t go wrong with gifting your gals with fun prints such as these ruffled rose-patterned socks from Forever 21.
- Pajamas and Loungewear
Get your girlfriend fully outfitted for her next Nicholas Sparks Netflix marathon with a pretty and comfortable set of loungewear, such as this Jenni graphic pajama top with kiss-print pants, available at Macy’s.
If you’re looking for fitting Galentine’s Day gifts for your favorite girls, there are definitely plenty to choose from. Use the ideas listed above to help you celebrate the ladies who matter most in your life on this worthy occasion–after all, as Leslie Knope once said, “It’s only the best day of the year!”
