No, we didn't misspell 'Valentine's Day.'
Most of us reserve Valentine's Day for romance, but February 13 is when the real fun begins. Galentine's Day, the faux-turned-actual holiday conceived by Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) on Parks & Recreation, is an opportunity for women to celebrate each other and we're officially here for it!
Whether you're sisters, besties, co-workers or otherwise, there's no better time than the day before Valentine's Day to assemble your tribe, especially if someone is nursing a bad breakup or fed up with relationships in general.

While material possessions aren't what define our bonds, let's be real: we'll never turn down a thoughtful gift. And if you're a sucker for pretty packaging, Etsy is the best place to discover beauty trinkets that your bestie will actually put on display and use. There's nothing worse than watching a gift gather dust.
And if you aren't already showing appreciation for your girlfriends, let this serve as a friendly reminder. Sometimes, we're all we've got--right ladies?
