Ever since the eccentric, affable, slightly neurotic Leslie Knope introduced the Parks and Recreation fandom and beyond to a concept we only wished we’d known about sooner, Galentine’s Day, Valentine’s Day became a little less focused on spending a romantic evening with your mate and more about showing the women in your life just how much you love them too.
And why wouldn’t you want to show your BFFs some love on Feb. 14? They’re your rock and your ride-or-die. They’re your brunch buddies, your “let’s order pizza and binge trash reality TV for four hours straight” couch chums — and without these people, life just wouldn’t be the same. Yeah, yeah, it’s cheesy and it’s a cliché, but you know we’re right.
So this year, spring for a Valentine’s Day gift that truly has some meaning, from a travel journal for documenting all your adventures together to a matching necklace set for the long-distance besties who may not see each other every day.
