Ten years ago, Leslie Knope on Parks & Recreation introduced 4.98 million households to Galentine’s Day, a fictional holiday that takes place the day before Valentine’s Day and is dedicated to specifically celebrating the female friendships in our lives. Since, we’ve wholly embraced Galentine’s Day by spending the afternoon or day with friends (not necessarily strictly female), throwing Galentine’s Day parties, and/or showering our best friends with gifts. And for those looking for a little gift-spiration this year, look no further than our list of Valentine’s Day gifts for BFFs.
Though Valentine’s Day has been dropping in popularity — according to the National Retail Federation (NRF), more than 60 percent of adults planned to celebrate Valentine’s Day, and this year, that number’s dropped to just over half — Galentine’s Day has experienced anything but. For those of you who also plan to spread the love via gifts this year, our Valentine’s Day gift guide has gifts for every price point, from affordable candles and handmade gifts to DIY kits, more luxurious beauty products, and so much more.
