This Valentine’s Day why not spread the love a little wider and consider one or two “Galentine’s Day” gifts for one or two of your besties?
There’s no need to restrict the day to only celebrating the love you have for your other half… what about the love you have for the special friend in your life? Especially if she/he is recently single, or has had a hard year, or has done something amazing for you recently – imagine how lovely it would be to send her/him something that shows how much you love them as well!
Personally I’m not a Valentine’s gift-giver, I’ll be honest and say that I tend to be an anti-Valentine’s Day person (so is Keith). Luckily we both feel the same way about it so no cards, chocolates or flowers on February 14th is absolutely fine with me (it must run in the family, my mother doesn’t believe in Mother’s Day). But I do love the idea of giving something to a gal pal, BFF, relative or anyone else you love on Valentine’s Day just simply to buck the trend and show them you care and are thinking about them.
So whether you’re anti-Valentine’s Day or not, think about someone who might like to receive something that’ll brighten their day. After all, February can often be a dark, gloomy and usually cold month depending on where you live – if they’re feeling down already then “the day of love” may well make them feel worse… until a lovely friend (you!) sends them a perfect “thinking of you/love you” present!
How nice would it be to have a friend that makes February 14th your new Palentine’s/Galentine’s Day? Go on, scroll down think about how much you love them…!

Galentine’s Day gifts: Cards and stationery
On it’s Valentine’s Day it can be a bit depressing when you WANT to receive a card but don’t. A tongue-in-cheek gal pal card is such a simple thing to send and will certainly put a smile on her face – or why not send a friendship book or a personalised jar of friendship date ideas?

Galentine’s Day gifts: For the foodie friend
If your BFF is also a foodie fiend then they’ll love a heart-shaped cheese board, pink ombre chocolate pyramids (heaven!!) or the gift that says Forget the calories, the personalised box of luxury brownies. I’m salivating at the thought.
