As Leslie Knope once said, Galentine’s Day is all about ladies celebrating ladies. And since your inner circle definitely helped you through the dumpster fire that was 2020, it’s time to show them some love.
Whether it’s chocolates, flowers, or small things that’ll help them relax (yes...relax), we wanna help you spread good cheer. So keep scrolling for the best gifts to send your sister from another mister.
Sleep? During a pandemic? Help them catch some much-needed zzzs with a lavender and buckwheat eye pillow. It’ll add a gentle weight to their eyes, which can help soothe restlessness and increase relaxation. Even if they just wanna lay down for a 10-minute break, this pillow will be an added bonus. ($32, Uncommon Goods)
Galentine’s Day is nothing without some sweets. And with this three pack, they’ll be able to munch on champagne bears, dark chocolate sea salt caramels, and sugar-coated gummy lips. IOHO (in our humble opinions) — it’s just enough to eat without feeling sick. Because no one wants a sour stomach come nighttime. ($21, Sugarfina)
No, roses aren’t just romantic. They’re your BFF and sending them a beautiful bouquet is the perfect way to send some Galentine’s Day love. Plus, the flowers are sourced directly from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms. Aka farms that are sustainably run by local workers who are paid fairly. ($65, Urban Stems)
We all secretly wish we could be part of the Jazzagals. So send a thoughtful note to the women in your life who make up your support circle. You can’t jump on a bus and hit up a Poison concert with them...but you’re counting down the days until you can see them again. Because they’re simply the best. ($4.50, Pinwheel Print Shop on Etsy)
Zoom meetings all day long call for a) cute earrings and b) clean nails. This kit includes a top coat protector, cuticle serum, and two-sided nail file. Everything comes in a convenient pouch, too. You want them to look and feel their best, duh. ($26, Olive & June)
Pick a card, any card. Gifts range from one month, up to one year (with six bottles delivered per month). So they won’t need to spend a penny on wine. They’ll just need to redeem their card and pick what bottles they like. Cheers. ($100+, Bright Cellars)
If they aren’t a robe person...it’s time they become a robe person. This one is made from bamboo. And is soft, cooling, and lightweight. If they need convincing, just tell them they can add it to their loungewear arsenal. Sweats all day, every day. ($80, Goldune)
Well...spa day from home. Made from sea salt, epsom salt, and minerals like magnesium and potassium, this bath salt can soothe aching muscles and relieve dry, flakey skin. It’ll also fill their bathroom with the relaxing aroma of lavender and chamomile. Yes, please. ($23, Skin Flo)
Maybe they give the best advice. Maybe you’ve known them since childhood. Whatever bonds the two of you, these messages will remind them of why your connection is so strong. There are 50 messages to choose from, so you can pick the 12 that best define your sisterhood. Awwws sold separately. ($40, Uncommon Goods)

This list has a battery bin, a magnetic rack that’ll attach to your fridge, and drawer dividers to keep your clothes neatly folded. Less mess, less stress.
Aka, things that’ll save you time and money. And just make life a bit easier. We’ve got patches that’ll heal pimples, a boot brush to get out scuff marks, and a detergent cup holder to end spills. Phew.
As if you haven’t baked enough bread. Here are things that’ll make the next few months better. Like an embroidery kit, a mini space heater for your desk, and a book dedicated to staying indoors.
