Ever since Leslie Knope introduced Galentine’s Day—a special day (February 13th) where Leslie and her lady friends “leave their husbands and their boyfriends at home and just kick it breakfast style. Ladies celebrating ladies”— on Parks & Rec, we’ve been 100% behind the idea. Because all the amazing, strong, kind, fierce, and all-around wonderful women in your life deserve a day to be celebrated amid the Valentine’s Day rush. And because it’s a great excuse to spend yet more time with your friends.
In the spirit of Galentine’s Day, we’ve listed a few gift ideas for celebrating your besties this Galentine’s Day. Or, for simply treating yourself: we don’t judge! We’ve also included a few of our favorite sustainable options so you can feel even better about celebrating your friendship.
