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.

21 thoughtful Galentine’s Day gifts to get your BFF

Know a caffeine addict or tea afficionada? We like this mug because there are different skin tones, hair types, and hand accessories to personalize this for you and your bestie. We say go with the money in hand. #claimitsis

2. The Birch Box succulent centerpiece

Flowers are cool, but instead of going with the clichéd rose, get your Galentine this succulent in a dramatic ceramic centerpiece that’s bound to turn heads.

3. Chunky knit blanket

Becozi sells super comfy knit blankets and throws on Etsy. This one’s made of soft chenille yarn and perfect for snuggling.

This handmade frame is as close to perfect as a gift gets if you have a BFF who’s across the country. Don’t forget to add a personalized caption.

9. Hand-poured candles

There’s no such thing as having too many candles in our book. Pick two soy candles from Candlefolk so that both of you have one.

10. Self-care journal

All of us have either been through that journey to self-discovery (and still go through it) or have a girlfriend who is. Gifting her the Let That Sh*t Go journal can help affirm to your BFF that she has always been more than enough and it’s okay to let go.

If your lady friend is a former frequent visitor to the spa, we feel her pain. Opt for this customizable skin kit that’s bound to give her that smooth skin and glowy look and feel she’s been missing.

15. Plush robe

Drape your BFF in luxury. This Brooklinen robe is made of combed Turkish cotton and promises comfort as if you’re at the spa.

16. More Than Enough by Elaine Welteroth

Every day is a good day to advocate for women’s empowerment. This book is the ultimate coming-of-age title for today’s millennial woman. Gift it to your friend, or snag a copy for yourself. Either way. Worth. It.

17. Custom luggage tags

As we wait for travel restrictions to ease, there’s no harm in dreaming and planning. If you’re due for a girl’s trip, you’ll love these luggage tags. It’s a great way to commemorate your first post-panny trip.

18. She is t-shirt

For the fierce, confident, and brave warrior you’re lucky to call a friend.

Not much for drawing? No problem. This card is just in time with the announcement of the return of the cult classic show.
