20 Valentine's Day Gifts for Your Best Friend, Since You Guys Are Basically Soulmates

Valentine's Day is a holiday dedicated to celebrating the person you love — but who says that person has to be your significant other? If you ask me, celebrating Valentine's Day with your best friend is 100 percent the way to go. Whether you're single or not, you should take a note from Leslie Knope and start celebrating Galentine's Day. This means going out for a special brunch (or dinner, or whatever) — and of course, buying each other gifts. 

If you're single, celebrating Valentine's Day with your best friend is a great way to get through the holiday without wanting to eat an entire box of chocolate by yourself in one sitting. If you're in a relationship, it's just a no-pressure way to have fun with your bestie. This year, buy gifts to show each other how important your friendship really is. Whether you want something small or something bigger, we've got you covered. Happy Galentine's Day!

A Wine To-Go Cup

This is something cute you can get along with a bottle of wine, or on its own. These little guys are great for games in the winter, or picnics and the beach in the summer. Plus, the pink top makes it very holiday appropriate.
