Last updated February 23, 2024.

Does Valentine’s Day have you feeling some type of way? Are your consciously coupled friends clogging your feed with photos of romantic dinner dates, nice gifts, and heart hands?

It’s easy to think that February is the month of love for couples but fret not, for there’s a day for us, the self-partnered, to do some celebrating of our own.

You and your BFFs have experienced it all. First jobs, bad breakups, crazy girl trips, you name it. While every day is a good day to celebrate your lady friends, there’s no better day to go all out than on Galentine’s Day.

Celebrated on February 13, the day before its famous cousin, Galentine’s Day is a day to cherish your friends and show how much you appreciate them.

With the pandemic continuing to rage on, hosting a besties party or brunch date is ill-advised, so we decided to create a Galentine’s Day gift guide to inspire a gift exchange and shared moments virtually. From cozy robes and blankets to plant centerpieces and self-care must-haves, you’re bound to find the perfect gift to spoil your BFF. And, who knows, you might find something for yourself, too.

Here are some thoughtful Galentine’s Day gifts that are the perfect way to show your unbiological sister how grateful you are for the journey and what’s to come.
