Galentine's Day: gifts for the gals in your life


Galentine's Day: gifts for the gals in your life

There is nothing like an (extremely commercialised) American holiday to remind you, and make you feel sad about being single.

Whilst you’re probably just as happy as your loved-up friends, having those around you get delivered flowers, chocolate and even singing bears can make you forget just how much you enjoy riding solo.

So, if you’re single and want to show your favourite gal pal how much you love and appreciate their friendship this Valentine’s Day, we have you sorted with the best gifts.

No matter the type of friendship you and your bestie have, this gift guide will suit any friend combo. The best part of it: these gifts are guaranteed to last longer than those overpriced long stem roses.

A deliciously scented candle

Yes, candles can be the cliché gift. However, with a beautiful scent, is the perfect gift to help your gal pal relax and rejuvenate.

Matching silk pyjamas

Everyone loves a good sleep, so a fresh matching pyjama set is literally gifting beauty sleep- you can’t go wrong.

A kick ass lipstick

No matter how tired your friend looks or feels, a swipe of lipstick can give you her an immediate confidence boost.

Moet and Chandon has been an integral part of special occasions since it began in 1743, so it’s a good thing that Galentine’s Day is a special occasion. Make it better by gifting this limited edition version that comes with a box to keep it cool for 2 hours- that’s if it lasts that long.
