The loveliest and most precious day of the entire year is almost here — the one that you spend showing your favorite person how much you care for them, how much they make your life happier and better: Galentine’s Day. Oh, you thought I meant Valentine’s Day? Heck no — we all know that celebrating friends is the ultimate reason for this season, which is why having some Galentine’s day gifts under $20 is so important this time of year.

As Leslie Knope famously says in Parks and Recreation, “it’s only the best day of the year!” Her friends get together the day before Valentine’s Day, eat breakfast, and share gifts with one another. Although you may not be able to get together in person this year, you can still have a Galentine’s Day brunch over Zoom. And since giving gifts is still an important part of the day, you can plan to mail them to your friends ahead of the big day.

With Galentine’s Day around the corner on Feb. 13, finding the perfect gift for a friend can be tough. Especially finding a cheap gift that still means a lot to your bestie. So if you’re still searching for the perfect Galentine’s Day gift, here are options for you to use!
