16 Galentine’s Day Gifts Your Best Friends Will Be Super Excited to Use, Starting at $12
Your bestie deserves the best.
By now we all know Galentine’s Day, the February 13th holiday created by Parks and Recreation character (and our all-time role model) Leslie Knope to celebrate her amazing crew of women friends. Here at HG, we’re of the opinion that G-Day should be a national holiday, but that’s beside the point. Either way, it’s a beautiful day to celebrate the friends who keep you calm and grounded—and we’re always here for that.
If you’re not into the idea of gift-giving or don’t have the cash for it right now, that’s completely okay, because we’re sure your friends aren’t expecting presents. But if there’s someone you’d like to shower with a little material love this month, we put together a list of Galentine’s Day gift ideas we think you’ll find intriguing. There’s jewelry, drinks, self-care, and even a little CBD—basically, something for everyone.
