For most of the history of Valentine’s Day, when we think about Feb. 14, we think of either celebrating being in a partnership or little kids handing out candy hearts at school. That changed when Amy Poehler’s character in Parks and Recreation introduced the concept of Galentine’s Day: celebrating a holiday typically reserved for couples with your best friends.

And why not? Best friends often last longer than even the best long-term relationships. The best of them are supportive, encouraging and willing to take your call at all hours of the night. They’ve probably seen you at your most vulnerable, dealt with your overexcitement on good days and misery on bad days, and still, they want nothing but the best for you.

If you want to show your bestie you care — and their love language happens to be gifts — consider one of these super-cool items.
