If you've ever wondered what Galentine's Day is, get ready to discover what is, in my humble opinion, the best holiday ever, everywhere, in the history of the universe, for forever. OK, maybe it's just because I'm a huge Parks and Rec fan, but it really is a great idea. It's Leslie's Knope's invention — taking place on February 13, the day before Valentine's Day. Basically, Galentine's Day is just a fun day where you show appreciation for your female friends.
During the time of the year where there's so much emphasis on romantic relationships, like they're the be-all and end-all of the universe, it's important to switch the focus to another kind of life-long relationship that's worth celebrating. It's by no means an anti-Valentine's Day holiday — it's celebrated regardless of your relationship status. Whether you're single AF, kinda-sorta-maybe seeing one, are in a long-distance relationship, or have been married for years, you can enjoy ladies celebrating ladies on Galentine's Day.
And what better way to celebrate your strong female friendships than with some sex toys? Because if your best friends can't get them for you, who can?
Here are some ideas for sexy Galentine's gifts, from lipstick vibes to vibrating rings to edible nipple tassels.
