Galentine’s Day: 12 Gifts to Give Your BFFs

1

Everyone knows that Valentine’s Day is typically dedicated to your SO, but I like to think of February 14th as so much more than a couple’s holiday. It’s a day to celebrate everyone that you love—especially the people who finish your sentences, always share the last slice of pizza, and understand you like nobody else. Yes, I’m talking about your best friends. This year, gift each of your closest galentines with a thoughtful zodiac-inspired present that shows her how much you care.
