8 Adorable Galentine’s Day Gifts Under $20
Celebrate your best #girlboss besties without breaking the bank.
In the greater history of Hallmark holidays, Galentine’s Day is a fairly new phenomenon. It is a spin off of Valentine’s Day, traditionally observed on February 13th, where women celebrate friendship and female power with their best girlfriends. This much needed day of lady love was popularized by a 2010 Parks and Recreation episode, in which Leslie Knope (played by Amy Poehler) acknowledges the need to have a dedicated moment to cherishing her closest friends over brunch, while leaving the guys behind. Since then, the day before Valentine’s day has been widely reserved for spending precious time with gal pals—honoring fellowship and enjoying bottomless mimosas (ideally). And being that the best Galentine’s Day celebrations are centered around food—be it brunch, dinner, or snacks and wine—it only makes sense to gift your girlfriends a super cute, food-related gift as a token of appreciation for their unconditional support and friendship.
