“What’s Galentine’s Day? Only the best day of the year!”
We have Leslie Knope (played by Amy Poehler on "Parks and Recreation," of course!) to thank for the surge in popularity of the wonderful, playful holiday that is Galentine’s Day. Whether you have a sweetheart or not, it’s a great occasion to celebrate the female friendships in your life.
The best Galentine’s Day gifts will show how much you care and make each of your friends feel appreciated. And best of all, you don’t have to spend big to treat your gals to something sweet.
We’ve rounded up 15 cute ideas, from fancy candies and socks with hearts on them to beauty products with, uh, romantic names.
Sure, chocolates are the traditional candy of Valentine’s Day, but on Galentine’s Day, we're all for sour gummy lips! Each of these boxes from Sugarfina has three different flavors of lips, and all of them are delicious.
Like a “best friends” necklace but better! Give one of these Le Creuset stoneware mugs to your bestie and keep the other one for yourself. You’ll think of her every time you pour a cup of cocoa or coffee!
