While some of us have celebrated Valentine’s Day with our girlfriends for years, we have Amy Poehler’s character on Parks and Recreation to thank for introducing us to Galentine’s Day. No matter if you’re single or taken, taking the time to celebrate Valentine’s Day with the real loves of your life is important — and you should have the Galentine’s Day gifts to match the occasion.

Female friendship is hard to come by for a lot of us. For me — as an anxious, introverted, workaholic living in one of the unfriendliest cities in America — finding a few women I connect with and like is an incredible feat. I call myself lucky to count three amazing ladies as my best friends and a handful of cool female acquaintances as part of my girl gang. And even though I’m in a serious relationship, I always want to make time for my girlfriends, especially on holidays that tend to highlight people’s romantic lives. Even if you only have brunch with your besties and then spend the rest of the day with your significant other, turning Valentine’s Day into Galentine’s Day is empowering and fun.

And if you can’t decide on a Galentine’s Day gift, wine is always an acceptable option.
