Honestly, who cares about Valentine’s Day when the day before is so much less stressful? Galentine’s Day (AKA February 13) is the freakin’ best. You typically only have one romantic partner (apologies if you’re polyamorous or just a self-proclaimed thot), but you can have an endless number of gal pals. That’s why Galentine’s Day is the ultimate day to show your friends you care. Treat your BFFs with a Galentine’s Day gift that’s actually cute this year. After all, they did still support you even when you thought it was a good idea to get back with your ex. (We all make mistakes, K?)
Look, we all get gifts that we don’t actually like. It’s part of life. But when those gifts come from our best friends? Ouch. We thought they knew us! It’s not like we spend every single weekend together talking about what we love (and hate). Oh, wait. We do. They should know what kind of gift we’d be thrilled to receive. Like, come on, Jill. You know I’m too bougie to paint my own nails. Why’d you get me so much nail polish? It’s honestly insulting to our friendship.
Of course, some people are harder to shop for than others. For instance, I never know what to get my roommate. But, I know she can never have too many re-usable grocery bags. So, when I find a cute one, I snag it. I know she’ll use it. Finding something that’s useful to a person is an important skill, because this is what I’ve found: A lot of people hate stuff. They don’t want a bunch of random things that aren’t useful to them. (TBH they’d hate my room decor.) In those cases, shopping for something that’s not a vacuum, or whatever that kind of person thinks is a useful gift, can be difficult. Just accept this candle shaped like a gnome, JILL!
Lucky for you, I’ve taken my vast gift-giving knowledge and applied it to Galentine’s Day. I rounded up 27 Galentine’s Day gifts that are actually cute and useful. There’s something for everyone—even Jill.
