Galentine’s day? Once upon a time I thought made-up holidays like this were ridiculous. As I get older, I realize that we should look for silly excuses to celebrate more often.
With busy schedules and constant stressors, sometimes we need the Hallmark holidays thrust upon us, or we will never see each other! My friends and I used to have a regular girls’ night. For years, we would make a point to get together at least once a month. This post contains affiliate links.
Over the years, life has seemed to pile on more and more reasons why our girls’ nights get pushed off. Our core group got together ONCE last year. ONCE.
So, if it takes a silly day like Galentine’s Day to change that, I’m here for it! And these gifts are perfect all year; I just happen to be writing this around Valentine’s Day.
Of course, gifts are never necessary to have a blast with friends. But, if you are looking for cute gift ideas for your pals, here are some ideas. Hey, I like PALentine’s Day better; it’s more inclusive!
I was sent some of these items, so I could see if they are gift-guide worthy. Anything I try and dislike will not make it into my posts!
If you have a bestie who loves bath and body products, here are my thoughts on a couple of products I was able to try out.
The Soothing Peony Milky Lotion has me extremely impressed. I’ll be honest, I am terrible at putting lotion on because I hate having it on my hands after applying it to my body.
In fact, I was sitting here with cracked and bleeding knuckles when I tried this lotion. When I tell you I was shocked at how lightweight and absorbent this lotion was, I am not being dramatic. I was waiting for extreme pain since my skin was so damaged from the cold, but what I felt was soothing, hydrating comfort.
I went back to typing on my keyboard right after I rubbed the lotion on. There was zero greasiness or any reason to go wash my hands. The scent is so refreshing and light. I’m obsessed.
If that’s not enough to love, the packaging is another level. Their sustainable refill system consists of a pretty container that you snap a pouch into. After your first purchase, you then just order the refill pouches, making it kinder on your wallet and the planet.
If you have a friend who always smells amazing, Lavanila’s Pure Vanilla perfume is a real treat. As someone who rarely wears perfume, I actually love this scent.
As I said in my post about trying to eliminate chemicals in my home, I am very sensitive to scents and chemicals. So, know that I am a tough sell when it comes to perfumes. I also believe that perfumes react differently with each person’s chemistry.
The clean ingredients and natural scent are so pleasing to my nostrils, that I believe this might just be a scent for anyone and everyone!
If you know someone who’s always hot, there’s a fashionable answer for that! Hot Girls Pearls creates freezable cooling jewelry. From bracelets to necklaces, you simply freeze the jewelry before you wear it.
It’s like tiny ice packs disguised as chunky trendy jewelry! Pure genius for those of us entering the age where hot flashes are a real thing.
Good hair accessories are a great gift idea for people with long hair. Even those of us who rarely style our hair in this phase of adulthood love a good scrunchie!
The French twist clip and the modern hair pins even have me feeling like I can create a few cute styles using these helpful tools.
You can’t go wrong with food gifts if you know what your friends like! For your sweet tooth friends, I cannot rave enough about Crumbs Bakeshop. I just wrote a complete review of the cupcakes and cookies from Crumbs Bakeshop.
My husband asks me every day when we can order more cupcakes, so it is safe to say Crumbs Bakeshop is a good choice for a gift!
If sweet and savory is preferred, you must try Gourmet Prospector Popcorn. Not only do they have the most exciting popcorn flavors, but the Prospector Theater is dedicated to providing employment to people with disabilities.
Help support their mission when you purchase bags of scrumptious flavors like Buffalo Cheddar, Belgian Chocolate Toffee, and Chocolate Strawberry. Great gift for snackers!
Do you have a friend that’s always battling the dog smells in their home? I’m very sure that’s me in our friend group. Gift them the new Pawsitively Fresh products from the makers of Poo~Pourri!
The Funk Lock Technology permanently neutralizes pet odor molecules and works to eliminate 99% of odors naturally. They even guarantee that they will outperform leading chemical brands!
The odor-eliminating spray and candle are a must for any home with multiple pets. Simply spritz pet beds, dog houses, pet carriers, furniture, rugs, and even your car for an instant odor elimination.
Again, I’m often iffy about burning candles, but this one is veterinarian-recommended. It’s a clean-burning candle that has the most amazing fresh scent.
Speaking of candles, Lavanila also sent me their 100% natural soy Vanilla Sugarcane candle. Just like their amazing perfume, this candle fills the house with a wonderful aroma.
Finally, a candle I can burn without getting a headache from chemicals!
Cleaning products as a gift? Hey, we are adults here. I’m all about the practical gifts. If you think your friends will appreciate good cleaning products, I really like Force of Nature.
So, there are my gift ideas for your adult friends. A little bit of practical, some self-care, some fun, and some yummy. I hope these ideas helped you find the perfect gifts for your pals.
