Galentine's Day is becoming more and more popular after the character Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation celebrated it year after year on the show. Technically it falls on February 13th so that you can focus on Valentine's Day the following day, but it's basically just a term for treating your gal pals, whether it's the 13th or 14th. Mid-February is the perfect time of year when those in the Northern Hemisphere can use a pick-me-up during the bleak days of winter--regardless of their romantic relationship status. Treat your friends, and even yourself, to something fun.

Here are a few ideas I came across on Etsy that I loved (and some I purchased--but I can't say which so it remains a surprise!). Click on the pics to learn more on the product page. Prices range from about $3-$35, so there are lots of options for different budgets. What's your fav?


Heart Window Clings

1. Heart Window Clings

These are so pretty and a cheerful touch for your home or office. This comes as a set so you can give them to multiple friends! It would make a really cute addition to a gift basket. ETSY SHOP: WindowClingsGalore


Hair bands
Choose from a variety of styles! These are so cute, yet practical. ETSY SHOP: TopKnotFavors



3. Galentine Heart Mug

I love this simple and cheerful design. Pretty pastel colors make me happy! ETSY SHOP: LittleCuteesStudio


4. Plastic Drinking Cup

I have a cup like this from my previous job, and it's perfect for visiting kids and to have a glass of water by my bed. Bonus: fill these with candy before presenting them as a gift/favor! ETSY SHOP: SassyandCoDesigns

5. Fluffy Socks - Cupcake Style!

Aren't these the cutest? They come in a clear gift box. Your friend will be delighted when you present this foot-warming "cupcake." ETSY SHOP: GigglePlanet

6. Conversation Heart Earrings

I love the muted colors on these dangly earrings. Unique and lovely! ETSY SHOP: LotusOfClay

7. Shower Steamers

As a person who hasn't taken a bath in many years, I'm loving the shower steamer trend. It makes my shower a more spa-like experience with the calming aromas surrounding me. ETSY SHOP: AmeelahEssentials

8. Personalized Jewelry Dish

I just started removing my rings for sleep and showers, and having a little dish like this has been so helpful! I love that these ones are personalized and simple. ETSY SHOP: SweetClementinesCo

9. Wish Bracelets

Fun little favors that are packaged and ready to go. Choose your string and heart color. ETSY SHOP: ZellieDino

10. Money Gift Holder

I love this unique way to give someone a little cash. It can hold lip balm, instead, if you prefer. I can imagine giving these out to nieces and other teens/20s who really appreciate monetary gifts. There are several designs to choose from. ETSY SHOP: ThePaperedParlor

11. Personalized Stemless Glasses

These are lovely and would be perfect if you're hosting a Galentine's brunch! ETSY SHOP: ModParty

12. Jar Candle

A clever and unique take on what is always a great gift for women! Choose from several sizes and scents. ETSY SHOP: WolvesnWillows

13. Leslie Compliments Bookmarks

Parks & Rec fans will appreciate these funny quotes from the show when Leslie would give Ann a "compliment." ETSY SHOP: ShopGigiAndBo

14. Conversation Heart Soap

I know there are several conversation heart items on this list, but that's because they are so happy! They aren't great to eat, but the colors and funny messages are one of those classic cheerful additions to February. These even claim to smell like the candy! ETSY SHOP: SunbasilgardenSoap

15. Personalized Tote Bag

Simple and sweet, and very affordable! These days, totes are especially handy for grocery shopping and occasional trips to the office for those who work from home. They'd also make nice gift bags if you want to toss a few more items in there. ETSY SHOP: PartyToThePeopleCo


16. Heart Sugar Cookies

Edible gifts are always great because they won't take up additional space in the house for long. :) These come ready-to-gift and have great reviews! ETSY SHOP: Just4YouTreats

17. Scrunchies

These were popular when I was a teen, and they're back! Cute and easy to remove from hair without the tangles of the tiny rubberbands. Choose from 15 colors, and 4 different label styles. ETSY SHOP: PlumPolkaDot

18. Succulent Gift Box

If you prefer the gift box be already prepared, these make a great little gift. The base set comes with a potted succulent plant, matches, a candle, and a greeting card. Choose from a variety of add-ons for a small fee, and you get to pick the candle scent. These would also make a great gift for your supervisor, assistant, or child's teacher. ETSY SHOP: SweetBasilCo

19. Message in a Glass Bottle

This is such a cute idea. Each capsule holds a little rolled piece of paper for a tiny note. Your recipient can "take" a capsule whenever they need a dose of love! ETSY SHOP: SugarHouseGoods

20. Love More Worry Less T-Shirt

The 70s groovy/retro style is very popular and looking so cute on items like this t-shirt. This works well as a Galentine/Valentine gift, but is general enough to be worn year-round. ETSY SHOP: TeeTELIER

21. Heart Night Light

A unique and comforting gift, especially for those struggling with insomnia or anxiety. The warm red glow adds a festive touch in February. ETSY SHOP: GRNHouseofglass
