Are you familiar with Galentine’s Day? It’s the holiday that falls on February 13. While it’s often overshadowed by Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day has a special place in the hearts of many women. In the words of the imitable Leslie Knope, it’s about “ladies celebrating ladies.” First featured in an episode of the show Parks and Rec, it depicted Knope and her pals as they “kicked it, breakfast-style.”
The fictitious holiday has caught on in real life. Long after the show ended, women continue to rejoice their female friendships on the eve of February 14. If you’re someone who wants to proclaim your platonic love, we’ve found unique gifts that you can give to any of the ladies in your life.
We’ve found empowering products that are also fun. Tattly makes inspirational temporary tattoos to tell your friends how awesome they are, and art lovers can honor the legacy of the pioneering female artist Frida Kahlo with a five-inch action figure.
Even if empowerment isn’t on your mind, you can still use it as the opportunity to get your besties some great gifts. They can be practical, too. Have a friend who loves to journal? We’ve included a quirky fish case that will hold all her favorite pens. And for those eager to learn a new craft, the kits of Kiriki Press are a charming introduction to embroidery.
Celebrate your favorite ladies with these creative Galentine’s Day gifts.
