As women, we have a tendency to look after everyone else's needs and usually end up putting our own needs last. The best Galentine's Day gifts are those that not only show your bestie that you care about her, but that remind her to care for herself too. We love this customizable Pampering Gift Box with all-natural scented soap, lotion, soy candle, lip balm, and adorable little live succulent in a white pot.
Thank her for being a friend with this adorable Golden Girls-inspired travel bag. It is perfect for her makeup or stationery and is sure to bring a smile to her face every time she uses it!
Is your BFF in need of some self-care tips? Teach her how to make time for herself with the little book that helps you to take care of YOU. This handy guide is full of useful advice and inspiration on how to take better care of her health, happiness, and wellbeing.
We love this pretty little ceramic trinket box from Urban Outfitters, and your bestie is sure to love it too. It is the perfect place to stash keepsakes, features a gilded motif in her star sign across the lid, and comes in a gorgeous gift box.
With all the hand-washing and sanitizing that we've recently been doing, our poor paws have taken a beating. Remind your gal pal to show her hands some love with this 6-pack of deep moisturizing and hydrating masks, perfect for a holistic self-care pamper treatment!
There are few things as indulgent as a bath after a long day, and with this shea- and coco-butter bath bomb set, you can help your BFF relax and unwind while getting her skin's moisture fix.
For the gin lover, you can't go wrong with a DIY gin-making kit. This W&P kit includes everything your cocktail-loving best friend needs to turn a bottle of vodka into a unique home-blend of craft gin.
One of the best things about the inventor of Galentine's Day is her unique and sincere compliments, and we love these gorgeous stemless champagne flutes sporting her most popular quirky one-liners. Treat your gal pal to a set, and every time she enjoys a glass of bubbles, she will be reminded that she is "brilliant and kind and stupid hot," "a goddess, a glorious female warrior," or "a poetic and noble land mermaid."
G-day gifts don't need to be pricey to show your "best bitch" that you care. This keychain set makes a really cute Galentine's Day present without breaking your budget.
An important part of self-care is ensuring that you get enough quality sleep, and with this weighted eye mask, your bestie's sleep problems are guaranteed to become a thing of the past! The four equally weighted pods contour to the shape of the face providing soothing pressure while blocking out the light, perfect for calming anxiety, relieving stress, soothing away migraines, and lulling the wearer into a deep, restful sleep.
Originally made popular by an e-card meme, you can now express your loyalty to your best friend with this "I'd Shank a Bitch For You" soy candle. The message may be hilariously savage, but these all-natural soy wax candles are phthalate-free, cruelty-free, and 100% vegan.
Another feature of a great Galentine's Day gift is spoiling your BFF with something she wouldn't get for herself. This Slipsilk pillowcase is the perfect example of such an indulgence. Made from 100% pure 22 momme mulberry silk, this pillowcase comes in a range of gorgeous colors and boasts a number of skin and hair health benefits.
Take her pamper game to the next level with this luxe sugar-based exfoliant. While the sugar buffs away dry patches, the blend of shea butter, Moroccan rose, and coconut oil is deeply hydrating, ensuring that her skin is left healthy and glowing.
For a truly personal and touching gift, this little book is a great way to tell your best pal why she is your favorite. With 112 fill-in-the-blank pages, you can customize the message to make it cheeky, funny, or sweet; for a unique gift that she can enjoy over and over again!
If your best friend loves minimalist jewelry, she will adore this elegant 14k white gold birthstone ring. Simply select her birth month and ring size, and voilà, you have a stylish and thoughtful gift that will last a lifetime.
An exfoliating shower brush is another skincare indulgence that your bestie wouldn't usually spoil herself with. We love this option as it boasts a double-sided head with both soft and stiff bristles, and the long handle design allows you to scrub and massage those hard-to-reach areas.
Although our bodies need direct sunlight for the production of vitamin D, the sun's harmful UV rays can do irreversible damage to our skin. A decent sunblock is therefore not a luxury but a necessity, and we love this hydrating primer because it boasts both SPF 40 and blue-light protection. Treat your BFF, and her skin, to this skincare must-have, and both she, and her skin, will thank you!
If your best gal hasn't discovered the stress-relieving benefits of coloring yet, why not treat her to this appropriately named "Love Ya, Bitch!" adult coloring book. Full of hilarious cuss words and friendship-related phrases, this book has tons of detail for hours of relaxing entertainment.
While we're on the topic of art therapy for stress relief, this coloring markers set is a great addition to a coloring book gift or the perfect G-day present on this own. If your bestie enjoys being creative, she will love how easy these pens make it to turn a simple doodle into a watercolor work of art.
Another fabulous self-care gift to treat your best friend with is this variety face mask and exfoliating pad set from the Korean beauty buffs at Lapcos. The set included seven sheet masks, each with its own active ingredient and range of rejuvenating benefits.
There are few things as relaxing as a foot massage, but for those of us who don't like our feet being touched, or who don't have the time to visit the spa, this soothing foot spa is the ideal gift. Treat your BFF to a stress-relieving foot bath with vibrating massage action to ease away the tension after a long day, all in the comfort of her own home.
If you are looking for a cheap and cheerful way to tell your friend how much she means to you, then a funny greeting card is the best way to do it. We love this "Bitch Ur My Soulmate" Galentine's Day card from Etsy, printed on high-quality silky smooth board, the card is blank inside, allowing you to include your own special message.
Whether or not you and your gal pal were around in the '80s and '90s to enjoy the antics of Rose, Dorothy, Blanche, and Sophia, everyone can appreciate the iconic friendship of the Golden Girls. This gift box features four gorgeous stemless wine glasses, each sporting one of the characters with a classic one-liner from the show, ideal for bringing a giggle to ladies' night in.
Give the gift of an indulgent sensory atmosphere with an innovative plug-in wall diffuser. This aromatherapy set comes with two heavenly fragrance vials and the bestselling Pura diffuser, which doubles as an LED ambient nightlight with adjustable color and brightness modes. Plus, the diffuser connects to an app allowing you to conveniently adjust scents, timing, and intensity from your smartphone.
A chaotic and messy environment has been shown to increase cortisol levels (also known as the stress hormone), which is why we tend to feel more relaxed in a clutter-free space. Spoil your bestie with the gift of a happier, clutter-free environment with this adjustable rotating organizer. We love this option as it is large and sturdy enough to hold all your cosmetic and skincare products while allowing for easy access from every angle.
Sporting the classic Leslie Knope quote, "Uteruses before Duderuses," this gorgeous ceramic mug is another fab budget-friendly Galentine's Day gift.
For the friend who prefers a shower over a bath, these highly scented steamers offer a great way to turn a quick shower into an aromatherapy experience. With ten different scents to choose from, each package contains six handcrafted tablets infused with essential oils, providing relief and comfort, and transforming the bathroom into a therapeutic spa-like environment.
A crystal facial roller is a must-have addition to any skincare regimen. The healing properties of the crystal promote healthier, happier skin, and when passed over specific acupressure points in the face, neck, and chest, the roller stimulates collagen production, which increases elasticity and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. With options available in Jade or Rose Quartz, your Galentine will love the skincare benefits of this little gem!
No matter how old we get, a friendship bracelet remains a classic way to say, "You are my favorite person." This elegant 14K rose gold bead and string bracelet can be customized with your choice of word or message in Morse code, reminding her that she is your "BFF," "Soul Sister," or "Amigas" every time she wears it.
For the wine lover, this gift set is our top choice. Not only does it include a stainless steel rose gold wine tumbler, but it comes with super cozy luxury novelty socks, sporting "If you can read this ... bring me some wine" on the soles. Stylish, functional, and humorous, this set gets our vote for best Galentine's Day gift!
Back on the self-care gifts, why not treat your bestie, and her hair, to a silicone-free, weightless, multitasking hair oil. Created by Jonathan Van Ness of Netflix's Queer Eye fame, this styling oil hydrates, protects, reduces frizz, and leaves a high-shine finish, plus it is cruelty-free and ideal for all hair types.
Staying with hair care gifts for the moment, you can't go wrong with spoiling your best friend with this super light and comfortable hair towel. Boasting ultra-lightweight AQUITEX® technology, this nifty little turban cuts drying time by half while controlling frizz, reducing breakage, and leaves hair healthier-looking with vibrant color.
Kick your BFF's bath time routine up a notch with this versatile bathtub caddy tray. Boasting a foldable stand for a book or iPad, a slot for her wine glass, and another round compartment for a candle (or a wine bottle?), this gorgeous Teak tray promises to transform a relaxing bath into an indulgent self-care experience.
For the girl who loves her bling, a stylish and functional jewelry organizer is a fab gift choice. We love this 5-tier, black and Walnut tabletop display stand, ideal to keep all her accessories safe and perfectly organized.
Just because our lips spend a significant amount of time hidden behind a mask it doesn't mean that they should be neglected. Spoil your best friend with this award-winning, deeply moisturizing balm and ensure that her lips are always hydrated, nourished, and perfectly kissable.
A massage is another luxe indulgence that usually requires a trip to the spa. You can treat your bestie to unlimited deep-tissue massages from the comfort of her own home with this 3D Kneading Massage Pillow. Compact and portable, this powerful massager helps to soothe and relax tight and aching muscles and can be used on the neck, lower and upper back, abdomen, calf, and thigh areas.
If you are looking for a Galentine's Day party favor, these "All we want for Valentine's Day is a Cute Messy Bun" velvet hair scrunchies will make the perfect gift for all your lady friends.
After spending most of the day standing on them, it is important to occasionally show your feet some much-needed TLC too. These hydrating foot mask socks are loaded with deeply nourishing ingredients, including essential oils and botanical extracts, to moisturize, soften, enrich and heal. The six-pack is perfect for a self-care pamper party with all your favorite gal pals.
When juggling multiple balls (kids, partner, family, career) it is crucial to get as much relaxation as possible out of the limited time you get to yourself. This weighted neck wrap is the perfect gift for the busy woman who needs something extra to help her relax and unwind. Besides the ultra-soft contoured fit, the pillow boasts built-in speakers, three calming nature sounds and can connect to Bluetooth devices to stream music, podcasts, meditation playlists, and more. Plus, the design includes four scent pads that, with a few drops of essential oils, can add an aromatherapy element for the ultimate stress relief.
While we're on the topic of stress relief, there is one guaranteed way to release tension... This personal massager is rechargeable, waterproof, and discreet, and with 30 patterns and eight speeds, it will compete for your position as the recipient's new best friend!
