Don't forget to show your bestie some love this Valentine's Day!
Best friends

Galentine's Day is the perfect way to show your best friends some love. Introduced by the popular TV show Parks and Recreation, the character Leslie Knope created Galentine's Day, celebrated on February 13th, as a way to share some love with your best girlfriends before the big V-Day celebration. 

Sure, you could DIY some elaborate gift or cook your bestie a four-course meal to celebrate (which would be awesome). But here are some Galentine's Day gift ideas for the not-so-crafty of us out there that still want to celebrate in full force!

The Sporty BFF:

Have a friend that's constantly on the move? A fitness lover would adore these sweet little gifts for Galentine's Day.

Sporty Polyvore Set

Products: 1. Watch2. Yoga Mat,  3. Water Bottle4. Armband

If your friend is super into staying fit, an accessory like a fitness watch to track her steps, calories and sleep is a crazy awesome gift. Alternatively, a fun patterned yoga mat and chic water bottle are perfect additions to her fitness equipment - and if they match her gym bag, that's always a plus! I also love the idea of gifting an armband for her smartphone. (Because who wouldn't want to jam out to Beyoncé during their workouts?)

The Cat Lover:

Don't we all have that friend who is obsessed with cats? (Or maybe you are that friend? No judgement here.) Well, here is a little inspiration to help you find the puuurrrfect gift! (Couldn't resist.)

Cat Lover Polyvore Set

Products: 1. Jewelry Tray2. Phone Case3. Ring4. Earrings5. Book

Every girl loves receiving jewelry around Valentine's Day. A cat-shaped ring or earrings are adorable and are bound to make your BFF super happy! And to hold them, we have a cat-shaped jewelry tray. If she's not super into jewelry, there are so many different variations of kitten-themed phone cases out there. Or you could always gift her "100 Reasons To Panic About Being A Cat Lady", which is a funny and cute read.

The Tech Savvy Friend:

Got a friend that's always up to date with the newest technologies out there? Try some of these chic-looking gadgets.

Techie Polyvore Set

Products: 1. Tassel Charger2. Portable Charger, 3. Phone Case4. Monogram Decal5. Metallic Charging Cord

No one ever wants to be caught without their charger when their phone battery gets low. This keychain charger can clip right on to a backpack, car keys, or anything else for on-the-go charging. Bonus: It's so cute that no one will realize it's a charger! For a more modern look, this marble portable charger doesn't need an outlet to juice up your BFF's phone. I'm loving clear phone cases, and this one shows your friend's personality with a cute turtle decal on a clear background. If your friend loves monogram everything, why not get a monogram computer decal for your bestie's laptop? They come in tons of styles. Finally, a pretty metallic charging cord is way more stylish than your standard-issue white one.

The Homebody Homegirl:

If your best friend would rather spend the night in pampering herself than out at the club, these are the gifts for her:

Products: 1. Face Mask2. Bath Tea3. Candle4. Heart Mug5. Slippers

If your BFF is the kind of girl who loves to pamper herself, grabbing her some fun sheet masks or bath tea will help her have a perfect spa day. Adding a sweet candle, some slippers featuring her favorite animal, and/or a cute mug to hold her tea will make her spa day the coziest ever.
