3 Ways to Celebrate Galentine’s Day With Your BFF


By Jae Curtis

Hey, not everyone plans on spending Valentine’s Day with a sweetheart, and if your BFF is your “significant other,” there’s no reason you should have to miss out on all the festivities. That’s why Galentine’s Day—a V-day celebration with your best friend—is the best way to ditch the hearts and romance for something a little sassier this year. You love your BFF, so why not check out some of these gift ideas for best friends to show her she’s your girl? This year, celebrate Valentine’s Day by popping in a good movie, cracking open a bottle of wine, and getting a little tongue-in-cheek with the holiday with one of these totally BFF-approved gifts.

Spa Night Kit

Fire up a chick flick, order ingredients from FreshDirect for a tasty dinner, and pamper yourselves with a spa night. You can put together your own kit, or bring over a treat like the Triple-Action, Rapid-Resurfacing Facial Kit for your BFF to indulge in during the festivities. Slather on your facial while you catch up on celeb gossip or watch your favorite rom-com. The best part? You get to join in the pampering, too.

Tickets to a Concert or Movie

But, then again, why stay in when you can plan an amazing night out? Concert tickets from Live Nation give you the chance to gift an unforgettable experience while you tag along. No matter where you call home, you can choose from cities with huge headliners around Valentine’s Day. If your BFF is more of a showtunes gal, you can also score amazing tickets on Broadway.com. Who says Valentine’s Day needs to be all romance and flowers? For Galentine’s Day, gift your BFF a couple of movie tickets to a comedy or fun foreign film you’ve both been dying to see—popcorn mandatory. Not sure what movie your friend wants to see? Go for a gift card from MovieTickets.com instead, and let her pick.

BFF Jewelry

Who says you need a honey to gift you jewelry? Galentine’s Day is all about celebrating your independence, so celebrate your BFF with a piece of fun costume jewelry that represents your friendship and commitment to one another. There are a ton of gorgeous options—like cocktail rings, charm bracelets, and statement necklaces—plenty of great gift ideas for best friends. It might be fun to find two of the same items in different colors (that way, you get a little something, too).

Whether you’re going out or staying in, your Galentine’s Day can be the best ever with the right gift. Show your BFF that she’s your partner for life by making her feel special.
