If you've never heard of Galentine’s Day, let me be the first to introduce you this entirely made-up, completely magical holiday invented by Leslie Knope, the main character on NBC's Parks and Recreation. Knope introduced the fictional holiday in a 2010 episode of the show as a way to celebrate platonic love between female friends. Celebrated on the eve of Valentine's Day, this fanciful on-screen holiday has blossomed into an annual tradition and I'm 100% here for it.
My love language is food, so naturally I'm giving edible gifts this Galentine's Day. Read on to find out this editor's picks for the best treats to shower your gal pals with, and maybe even treat yo' self while you're at it.
1. A set of pink and red spices
This set of six spices is the gift that keeps on giving—your galentine will be able to season their food for months to come with Spicewalla's assortment of red and pink spices, including Himalayan Pink Salt, Sumac, and Pink Peppercorn.
2. Adorable mini cupcakes
True decadence is a pack of 25 mini cupcakes you don't have to share with anyone. That's right! Eat them all! Your galentine will cry tears of joy when they receive Baked by Melissa's Love Gift Box, and you'll be stoked because it's a delicious and thoughtful gift for under $50.
3. The happiest Blue Valentine
If you've never watched the 2010 tear jerker Blue Valentine, featuring the dreamy duo of Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams, you might not get this reference, but trust me, there's nothing sad about this limited-edition collaboration from Pineapple Collaborative. I'm a huge fan of this brand's olive oil and I absolutely love a monochromatic moment, which is why I love this celebratory cerulean pair.
4. Saucy bakeware from Great Jones
That's right, Great Jones just released its ceramic bakeware in a shade of red called "Marinara" to make this holiday saucier than ever. If your galentine is into making homemade lasagna or perfectly baked pies, they might fall in love with these scarlet dishes.
5. Tickets to a virtual chocolate and cheese pairing class
This gift could be a fun thing to do together (virtually) with your galentine, especially if you'd typically celebrate with an elaborate dinner or wine and cheese night. The folks at Jasper Hill Farm are partnering with Dandelion Chocolate (the company behind the Tesla-engineered chocolate chips we love) for a cheese and chocolate pairing class on Friday, February 12 at 5:30 PM ET.
The cost of one ticket includes a tasting kit with everything you need for the tasting, to be shipped to your giftee so it arrives in time for the event.
6. A bottle of celeb-owned wine via Drizly
If your galentine is constantly texting you about the latest celebrity gossip, they'll probably appreciate a bottle of celeb-owned wine. We've rounded up our favorite bottles available for delivery via Drizly, the online alcohol marketplace.
