Forget Valentine's – these "Galentine's Day" presents are way better than a box of chocolates.

Valentine's Day is almost here, which means that Galentine's Day is even closer! Wait, "what's Galentine's Day?" you ask?


It falls on the day before Valentine's Day (13 February) and is a day dedicated to celebrating the lovely ladies in your life. It's essentially an excuse to spoil your bestie rotten, which is an event that we think is worth celebrating.

But if you're scratching your head on what to get your best friend this lovey-dovey season, we've got you covered.

2. Silk pillowcase

You can't put a price on beauty sleep and a silk pillowcase is a gift that keeps on giving. First, your BFF will feel like they're drifting to sleep on a silken cloud. Second, silk pillowcases are proven to be much better for your skin and hair compared to linen or cotton bedding.

3. Perfume

Your pal will think of you every time they give themselves a little spritz of their new fave perfume. We've been loving Perfect by Marc Jacobs lately. It's a modern and feminine scent with fresh floral mixed with juicy notes of rhubarb, daffodil and almond milk. Yum!

4. Cute kicks

Ensure your bestie is looking fly this V-Day with a fresh pair of shoes. The Made With Love remix of the classic Converse Chuck Taylor All Star high tops are an absolute VIBE. Available in black and red, they also have super cute embroidered detailing and a super cute heart design on the outsole. These limited edition sneakers were made especially for Valentine's Day, but you can rock 'em all year round.

5. Phone case

Best friends don't let best friends take basic selfies. They also make sure that the phone those selfies are being taken on look super sweet too. A brand new phone case will keep your BFF's phone looking cute and their selfies looking fire. You could get one personalised with their name or star sign or you can just choose a print that you know they'll lurve. There's no shortage of places to pick up phone accessories, but we recommend starting with Wildflower Cases if you're looking to narrow down your search.
