Galentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Your Adult Besties

Galentine’s day? Once upon a time I thought made-up holidays like this were ridiculous. As I get older, I realize that we should look for silly excuses to celebrate more often.

With busy schedules and constant stressors, sometimes we need the Hallmark holidays thrust upon us, or we will never see each other! My friends and I used to have a regular girls’ night. For years, we would make a point to get together at least once a month. This post contains affiliate links.

Over the years, life has seemed to pile on more and more reasons why our girls’ nights get pushed off. Our core group of friends got together ONCE last year. ONCE.

So, if it takes a silly day like Galentine’s Day to change that, I’m here for it! And these gifts are perfect all year; I just happen to be writing this around Valentine’s Day.

Of course, gifts are never necessary to have a blast with friends. But, if you are looking for cute gift ideas for your pals, here are some ideas. Hey, I like PALentine’s Day better; it’s more inclusive!

Gift Ideas for Galentine’s Day

I was sent some of these items, so I could see if they are gift-guide worthy. Anything I try and dislike will not make it into my posts!

For the Bath and Body Babes

If you have a bestie who loves bath and body products, here are my thoughts on a couple of products I was able to try out. These make good self-care gifts since many of us forget to treat ourselves in this area!

Lip Scrub

As the cold season retreats but leaves its mark, this all-natural lip scrub is an excellent gift idea. Perfect for anyone looking to smooth out winter-chapped lips, it’s a pampering essential that promises soft, kissable results. Add in a lip balm for a cute little gift package.

Lotion

The Soothing Peony Milky Lotion has me extremely impressed. I’ll be honest, I am terrible at putting lotion on because I hate having it on my hands after applying it to my body.

In fact, I was sitting here with cracked and bleeding knuckles when I tried this lotion. When I tell you I was shocked at how lightweight and absorbent this lotion was, I am not being dramatic. I was waiting for extreme pain since my skin was so damaged from the cold, but what I felt was soothing, hydrating comfort.

I went back to typing on my keyboard right after I rubbed the lotion on. There was zero greasiness or any reason to go wash my hands. The scent is so refreshing and light. I’m obsessed.

If that’s not enough to love, the packaging is another level. Their sustainable refill system consists of a pretty container that you snap a pouch into. After your first purchase, you then just order the refill pouches, making it kinder on your wallet and the planet.

MyKirei by KAO Soothing Peony Milky Lotion
$17.64

This fresh and light lotion comes with an innovative refill system that you can feel great about. The lotion itself is incredibly hydrating with ZERO greasy afterfeel and the most clean floral scent.

Features:
  • Sustainable holder and refill system
  • Lightweight lotion
  • Refreshing and clean fragrance
  • Nourishing and hydrating without heaviness

Perfume

If you have a friend who always smells amazing, Lavanila’s Pure Vanilla perfume is a real treat. As someone who rarely wears perfume, I actually love this scent.

As I said in my post about trying to eliminate chemicals in my home, I am very sensitive to scents and chemicals. So, know that I am a tough sell when it comes to perfumes. I also believe that perfumes react differently with each person’s chemistry.

The clean ingredients and natural scent are so pleasing to my nostrils, that I believe this might just be a scent for anyone and everyone!

Lavanila Clean and Natural Pure Vanilla Perfume
$72.00 ($21.18 / Fl Oz)

This light vanilla fragrance is perfect for day and night. Even sensitive noses will enjoy the sweet, cozy, and romantic aroma of this healthy perfume!


Features:
  • Vegan vanilla fragrance
  • Free of harsh chemicals
  • Great for sensitive skin
  • Cruelty-free

Good hair accessories are a great gift idea for people with long hair. Even those of us who rarely style our hair in this phase of adulthood love a good scrunchie!
