“What’s Galentine’s Day? Only the best day of the year!”

Galentine's Day has grown in popularity over the last few years — largely thanks to "Parks and Recreation," which featured the wonderful, playful holiday as taking place on February 13, the day before the romantic holiday. Though, you can choose to celebrate your besties whenever you want. 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. Best of all, you don’t have to spend big to treat your gals to something sweet.

We’ve rounded up 33 cute ideas, from fancy candies and socks with hearts on them to beauty products with, uh, romantic names.
