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 Business Card Holder
This is a perfect gift if your best friend just got a new job. It’s charming, but still professional. Very few people are going to actually buy themselves a designer business card holder, so do it for her!
Give your BFF the gift of glow this Valentine’s Day. The MY Konjac Sponge All Natural French Pink Clay Facial Sponge is designed specifically for “dehydrated or fatigued” skin and is great for exfoliating. Plus, it will last two to three months!
An Extra Charger Cord
This Happy Plugs cable will charge most Apple products, and will help keep your friend organized because it’s a different color than her other Apple cables. It’s also pretty long, and the packaging is so cute. Everyone could always use a spare charging cable, especially since the Apple ones always do that weird splitting thing.
Songbird Reading Table Lamp
This is probably something your friend won’t buy herself — which is why she’ll love getting it from someone else. With three levels of light intensity and a high-quality speaker, this reading table lamp is perfect for a day spent cuddling up with a book. Oh yeah, and it’s cute, too.
A Special Mug
In case you’re not familiar with Grey’s Anatomy, this is what best friends Meredith and Cristina say to each other, and it’s kind of the sweetest thing ever. Show your best friend just how much she means to you with this inexpensive, but very thoughtful gift from Amazon.
A Sassy Shirt
If you and your BFF are into spinning class, you can’t go wrong with this cute tank top from Betches Love This. It’s the perfect play on one of the best Mean Girls quotes of all time. Get one for yourself too so you guys can match during your next class.
