Valentine's Day is all about celebrating romance, which is totally fine, but there's no guarantee you'll be in a pro-romance mood when the holiday rolls around. Galentine's Day, on the other hand, is all about "ladies celebrating ladies" — and when would you *not* be in the mood to do that? Especially because finding the perfect Galentine's Day gifts is one of this holiday's most important traditions, and shopping for Galentine's Day is pretty much like shopping for Valentine's Day, "minus the angst." (In case you somehow don't know, Galentine's Day is celebrated on February 13. But it lives in your heart all year long.)
Shopping for this pre-VDay holiday is more fun because if you follow the example set by Galentine's Day founder Leslie Knope, gift-giving will be a process that's just a million percent fun. Leslie would have sooner given up waffles than give someone a less-than-fabulous present. And she knew that the best gifts are the most personal, like a mosaic portrait made from the crushed bottles of a person's favorite diet soda or a 5,000 word essay on why someone is so awesome. She also understood that the best gifts are the ones given while bottomless mimosas are being poured and frittatas served. (Also, those aforementioned waffles. And whipped cream. On waffles.)
True, Leslie's gifts always tended towards the DIY. It's quite possible that you don't have the time or inclination to create DIY masterpieces for your whole squad. (Or any of said squad.) Don't stress it. You can still come up with some super-personal Galentine's Day gifts — just use each gal's unique personality as a guide.
