Looking for novel ideas for the best Galentine’s Day gifts for friends?

Valentine’s Day and Galentine’s Day (which falls the day before Valentine’s Day, on February 13th each year) are definitely not holidays “for lovers only.”

What would we do without the love and support of our girlfriends who sometimes understand us better than anyone else?

Sometimes, a small gift or even a note from a friend can lift our spirits and bring a smile to our faces. Here are some ideas for people-pleasing girlfriend gifts for Valentine’s Day.

These are the type of things I love to give or love to get!


The Best Galentine’s Day Gifts for Friends


Half Moon Ring Dish

Ring Dish

Ring Dish

My friend Linda once sent me a ring dish that I keep on my nightstand. It’s where I keep my earrings overnight after taking them off for bed. Each time I use the dish I think of my friendship. 

This little half moon ring dish is very small (a little large than a lipstick tube) but big enough to hold a ring or earrings.

It comes in white, black and blue and also in a two-pack if you think she needs more space.

Set of Silk Scruncies

This beautiful set of three Cozy Earth 100% Mulberry Silk hair scrunchies come in neutrals of black, champagne and ivory.

Your friend will enjoy using them day or night, perfect for tying back her hair when washing up before bed, too.

They come in a drawstring pouch that makes them great for travel.

Wrapable Reusable Shopping Tote

Wrapable Reusable Shopping Tote

Whether we are going to the supermarket or visiting a museum in the city, we often wind up shopping. I always keep a tote in my purse so I have it available for those unexpected purchases.

The reusable totes from Wrapable come in a variety of colorful designs that fold up in their own matching pouch. Although they are ultra-light, they can carry up to 50 pounds. Each time your friend uses it, she’ll think of you.

Alessi heart-shaped mug

Alessi Heart-Shaped Mug

First I bought two, then I bought two more, and then two more again. Then when I had no more space on my kitchen cabinet shelf, I began buying them as gifts for friends (they come packaged in a pretty box).

This heart-shaped, bone china mug has an attractive, eye-catching shape with a thin lip that’s pleasant to drink from. The handle is easy to grip as well. Designed by Miriam Mirri for Alessi, it’s my go-to morning cup for coffee or cappuccino.

Each morning she’ll think of the bonds between you when she drinks coffee, tea, or hot chocolate from this white ceramic mug. (If she’s your bestie, you can probably guess her morning beverage of choice.)

Cozy Earth Kimono Robe

Best Galentine’s Day Gifts for Friends: Cozy Earth Robe

Cozy Earth Kimono Robe

This buttery soft, sensual robe drapes over your body (after the shower, at breakfast, or when you just don’t feel like getting dressed). Figure flattering (with an inside tie and belt attached to the outside), it’s ethically made from bamboo.

The breathable, moisture-wicking, machine washable fabric keeps you comfortable even when the room is too warm. Comes in black, gray or white in sizes from XS to XXXL.

Reusable Magnetic Cable Ties

Magnetic Cable Ties

Magnetic Cable Ties

I fell in love with these colorful silicone twist ties. When I travel I typically bring several devices with charging cords (my phone, Kindle, etc.). When I first purchased a package of these ties, I wondered how I would ever use 24 cables ties. Now i’m on my second bag! I found all kinds of uses for the ties at home.

The set includes eight different colors and the magnets are strong enough to hold most cords with you twist the tie twice and fasten the magnet. The heavy cord to my Dyson hairdryer was the only one that was too thick to hold.

Mionetto Extra Dry Prosecco Rose DOC

Mionetto Prosecco Rose

Mionetto Prosecco Rose

A bottle of Prosecco is a gift meant for sharing.

This sparkling Prosecco Rose, made with Glera and Pinot grapes from Veneto, Italy offers honey and bread crust aromas. This versatile wine is great for making a pink spritz aperitivo (see recipes), to sip throughout dinner, or after.

Male or female, you can never have enough socks because one always seems to get lost. That’s why socks are such an appreciated gift.

The whimsy of these colorful socks lives up to their name. The collection of Happy Days socks for Valentine’s Day is adorned with hearts. The two- and three-pair sets come in gift boxes. Not only will they keep her feet warm but they’ll bring a smile to her face.

Serenity Sleep Mask

Serenity Sleep Mask

Serenity Sleep Mask

This cozy, uber-soft, and comfortable mulberry silk sleep mask blocks out light and enhances sleep. Wearing an eye mask helps improve sleep; a recent study reported in The Washington Post found that wearing one even improves memory.

The mask comes in five different colors but the red one will never get lost. If your friend wears it on her next long-haul flight, when she awakes, people will probably ask her where she got it. The mask is unisex and hand-washable.

Londontown Nail Concealer

Londontown Nail Concealer

Londontown Nail Concealer

 

Good things do come in small bottles. I first read about this nail concealer in a woman’s magazine and never thought it would be as good as it is. If you don’t have time for a manicure before leaving home, you can put on two coats of this polish in less than 5 minutes. It makes your nails look clean and blurs any imperfections.

It is also long-lasting and easy to remove with nail polish remover. I purchased the pink one, but it comes in four different colors. Great little product to give or get!

Tweezerman Rose Tea Petite Set

This Tweezerman tweezer set comes in a lovely pink leather case. It includes a stainless steel slant tweezer and a stainless steel point tweezer. The size is perfect to slip in a purse or travel case so it’s with you when you need it.

It comes with a lifetime warranty in case the implements ever need sharpening. I love Tweezerman products! One you try them, you won’t go back.

Heart-Shaped Panettone

Best Galentine's Day Gifts: Heart-Shaped Panettone from Veneto

Heart-Shaped Panettone from Veneto

The storied pasticceriaOlivieri 1882, has been making delicious baked goods for 140 years. I received this last year as a gift and it was smashing.

If your friend likes a moist and delicious panettone, she’ll  fall in love with this special edition, handmade “San Valentino” heart-shaped panettone cake. The decadent sweet bread is laced with Valrhona dark 55% chocolate and candied strawberries.

Beautifully packaged, it’s sourced from the bakery in Italy and arrives 48 hours after ordering.

An Apple Air Tag

Apple Air Tag

Apple Air Tag

If your friend is prone to losing things (like I am), she’ll appreciated having an Apple Air Tag to track her belongings. 

Last year, Apple sold some 35 million AirTags, 20 million more than last year. The highly practical device is soaring in popularity because it offers peace of mind.

The AirTag sends out a secure Bluetooth signal to iCloud that allows you to trace your luggage or other belongings (e.g., a purse or attache) on your phone. It’s a great little gift.

Tag Vault

Tag Vault

Tag Vault

Speaking of discreetly tucking an AirTag in your wallet, the female police officer in my town suggested that I look into a featherweight, flexible AirTag holder called TagVault. You might consider this an offspring of the Air Tag.

It is just about the size of a credit card (although slightly shorter, so it stays hidden in any card slot) and adds no thickness to the AirTag. I bought a set of two, one for me and one for my husband. It comes in three different colors.

Cupid Valentine’s Day Basket

Supermarket Italy Gift Basket

Supermarket Italy Gift Basket

If you really want to make a splash send her the Cupid Valentine’s Day Basket. It is filled with sweetness for the person who brings so much joy and kindness to you.

Filled with food, toiletries and more, it comes in a beautiful wrapped basket with a Teddy Bear and Valentine’s Day balloon. I love this company for the quality of their products and their reliability.

Sometimes, I like a little gift so much that I also want one for myself. These handy little folding brushes can be purchased in a choice of colors in multiples of two or four, for yourself and your BFF, or BFFs if the case may be.

They are lightweight and compact so you’ll have it with you when you need it. As a bonus, there’s a little vanity mirror inside the handle.

Pink CordBrick

This cute and clever accessory is perfect for your friends who are always organized and neat. The patented Cordbrick is made of silicone and weighted with steel to stay in place on any charging station.

It weighs down and gathers cables in separate channels so they stay put on a night table or desk, and don’t get tangled. Easy in and easy out. It’s portable, too. It comes in a variety of colors but the pink one is perfect for Galentine’s Day!

Heart-Shaped Waffle Maker

Heart-Shaped Waffle Maker

Heart-Shaped Waffle Maker

I’m a big fan of Dash products. I love their little rice maker (which I use all the time) but for Galentine’s Day, this little heart shaped waffle maker is a novel gift.

It makes perfect mini, heart-shaped waffles in just a few minutes and is inexpensive and easy to clean.

This gift definitely deserves the prize for “cuteness.”

Bagsmart Clear Toiletry Bag

The reason why I like these Bagsmart toiletry bags is clear and simple! You can immediately see where everything is.

The set of two comes in two sizes, large and medium, and the medium one is sized right to meet the TSA 3-1-1 liquids rule. Both have full zippers for easy access. If you are giving them as a gift for a friend, you can tuck something cute inside. The trim comes in a variety of colors.

Layered Travel Makeup Organizer

If you want to take your makeup with you but want it to be organized and compact, this layered travel makeup organizer can be a lifesaver.

This inexpensive travel bag is made of a waterproof faux leather and has lots of pockets and compartments to keep things separated and easier to find.

It comes in a choice of colors and if it’s too tiny for your needs, it does come in a larger size.
