Each year, the week leading up to February 14th has something special in the air. It's a time of Valentines, to celebrate childish, young love - and, of course, gift gifting.

Don't worry, because our article is here to help you answer all of your questions!

Be My Galentine Wine Bottle Label Stickers
Wine is a great way to celebrate Galentine’s Day. But how do you make others know you’re celebrating the occasion? Stick one of the labels from the Be My Galentine Wine Bottle Label Stickers, and it’ll do all the talking! We really liked how these gifts are inexpensive and tickle that funny bone while you’re feeling giggly on wine.
These labels are waterproof, extra durable, and can easily stick over any standard wine bottle - without the need to remove the original label. Gift this to your single girlfriends, and they’re bound to appreciate this special piece.
THE COMFY Original
Single or not, everyone loves that warm cozy feeling inside a blanket (it's even better with someone to share it with!). But now, you can gift this feeling to your girls, with the COMFY Original. This wearable blanket is one of a kind and was brought to the spotlight in an episode of Shark Tank.
We absolutely love how this can be worn anywhere, and you’d still feel pretty awesome. Made with comfortable, luxury material, it is designed to be oversized because the warm cozy feeling must go down all the way to your legs. There are few gifts that can match the experience of being a walking blanket.

Entertain yourself and your girls this Galentine's Day with the Big Dot of Happiness Be My Galentine set of icebreakers and games. These games are perfect to pair with the special wine you'll be sharing with your girls.

The set contains 4 games: This or That, Most Likely To, Drink If, and Gals. With these games, it is impossible to not discover something new about your girls and have a great time. But do remember, this is designed for a fun time together in a group, so be sure to include all those friends of yours!

So, how much does this Galentine mean to you? We found this gift to be a thoughtful one because customizing it can have you think about what your girlfriends truly mean to you. Placing yourself in the coffee cup from which your bestie sips her daily dose? Few gifts can keep you in their minds as much as this one.

This two-piece necklace makes a simple proposition – no matter how close or how far, this friendship necklace will always stand to be a symbol of your love for them.

Because it can easily be washed by hand, it is a gift that will last longer and can find use on any occasion.
Custom Best Friend Throw Blanket
It can be difficult to surprise your best friend when you are trying to find a gift for them. But we've got a feeling that this creative idea will not come across in even their wildest dreams. The Custom Best Friend Throw Blanket can be completely customized with colors and messages.
Made of high-quality warm fleece that will not shed, we loved this gift for the simple fact that the customizer knows the value of this gift and will go above and beyond to deliver the perfect rendering of your friendship. Whether it be with humor or an inside joke, this gift is perfect to show your best friend you really care.
Knock Knock Why You're My Bestie
There is just one way to describe the Knock Knock Why You’re My Bestie journal – it forces you to be honest to yourself and, by extension, to your best friend, about what their relationship means to you. While we know those emotions can all come out in a mess, the journal offers clarity by asking you to fill in the blanks on each page.
If this gift does not make your best friend laugh and cry at the same time, we’re sure they’re not human. If you ever wanted to put your relationship into words, this journal would be the medium to help you.

The Office BFFs: Tales of The Office from Two Best Friends Who Were There
The Office BFFs: Tales of The Office from Two Best Friends Who Were There is an unexpected gift from the show that already has our hearts. The book, which is due to be released in May this year, is a story of bonding between Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey, who play Pam and Angela in The Office.
Considering they grew into BFFs over the 9 seasons of the show and then co-hosted a podcast of their own, we believe this book has promise. The book contains exclusive stories about the making of the show and behind-the-scenes laughs we never knew about - and we can’t wait for it to hit the stands!
