I’ve said this before, but I’m not a huge fan of Valentine’s Day. It’s not that I’m jaded or bitter or anything, haha, it’s just that I think it’s a really commercialized and silly holiday. Plus, all the red and pink starts to get to me after awhile!
BUT that doesn’t mean that I don’t like to get some flowers or candies on V-Day (hint hint). And what I like even better is the idea of TREATING YOURSELF for Valentine’s Day. It’s the perfect opportunity to show yourself some self love. Go ahead girl! You deserve it!
I’ve rounded up some of my favorite gift ideas to give yourself OR your bestie.
Galentine’s Day Gift Ideas
I love the minimalist design of these candles. They also smell amazing! This limited edition ‘Love Potion’ candle is the perfect gift for yourself or a friend. (I’d probably keep it for myself…haha). 10% of the proceeds are donated to the ACLU!
Why not create a photo book for you and your bestie to celebrate all the fun adventures you’ve had together? I have several AU photo books and I love the simplicity and quality. Artifact Uprising is offering 20% off two or more photo books with code “GALENTINE”.
I couldn’t resist including this in my gift guide! This brand always gives me a chuckle with their funny packaging. If your Galentine has a sense of humor, this would be the perfect gift! Right now get 20% off all gift sets!
Don’t wait for a man to send you flowers – send them to yourself! Flowers are my favorite pick-me-up and these roses last up to a year! No, seriously! They can get kind of pricey but Le Mini rose only costs $39! It’s a small price to pay for a flower that lasts a year, in my opinion. I think this mini arrangement would look so pretty on your vanity. It’s a daily reminder to show yourself some love!
I love these bracelets because they are handmade from paper by artisans in Uganda. Proceeds from every 31 Bits purchase go towards fair wages, clean work environments, and education for artisans from around the world. So it’s a gift you can feel good about! They also have a Valentine’s Day Shop with more cute gifts for Vday! You could pick up a few of these beaded bracelets for your girlfriends! It’s an updated friendship bracelet!
6. Lush Bath Bomb:
I looove adding a bath bomb to my tub when I want to unwind. It’s so fun to watch these things dissolve in the water! There’s tons to choose from but this PINK bath bomb is perfect for Vday! Encourage your bestie to practice some self love as well and gift her one of these bath bombs!
7. Sugarfina Sweets:
I’m a sucker for gummy candies and Sugarfina has sooo many to choose from! Plus, I love the cute cube packaging. They have a Valentine’s Day shop with lots of Valentine’s Day themed candies. I’ll take them all please!
