The term “Galentine’s Day” was coined by the character Leslie Knope, played by actress Amy Poehler, in the NBC show Parks and Recreation.

In a nutshell, Galentine’s Day is on February 13 and is meant to “celebrate other ladies”—whether that’s their barkada, relatives, or peers. It seems like a good practice to get into!

Send your best girl friend one of these pretty and practical gifts to show your love and appreciation for her this Galentine’s Day!
