Galentine’s Day is a time to shower your girls with love! The unofficial holiday originated on the sitcom Parks & Recreation, and became a real-life way to celebrate your besties.
Galentine’s Day takes place the day before Valentine’s Day, on Feb. 13. With just a few days left, it’s not always easy to find a decent last-minute gift (outside of wine and flowers). To make that search a little easier, we rounded up a list of excellent gift options that are a perfect way to celebrate the women you love (including yourself!).
And don’t worry if the gifts happen to arrive a little later than scheduled. While many of the items listed offer fast delivery options and in-store pick up, others may take a few more days to land. The good news? You can present your girlfriends with gifts on — and after — Valentine’s Day, and Mother’s Day will be here before you know it.
Keep reading for a collection of unique, thoughtful and downright sweet gifts for your best friend, sister, mother and other special women in your life.
