We're a big advocate for celebrating Galentine's Day. What better excuse to show your friends how much you love and appreciate them than by spending the day embracing your pals and exchanging meaningful gifts?
Friends bring out the best in us, support us, share experiences with us, and make life a lot more fun! A genuine friendship is something that should be treasured and celebrated.
Galentine's Day is the perfect excuse to honour those special people in your life. And we think there's no better way to say "Happy Galentine's Day" than to gift your besties with nail and beauty products they'll love.
But if you're stumped on what to get them, not to worry! We've rounded up some of the best Galentine's Day gifts from Mylee that will spread the love and warm fuzzies to your friends.
What is Galentine's Day All About?
First though, what is Galentine’s Day?
Well, the day falls on 13th February (the day before Valentine’s) and is dedicated to celebrating female friendships.
Like all iconic things, it started with an episode of a TV show. In Parks and Recreation, the character Leslie Knope celebrates her BFFs by giving them gifts and having brunch in their honour. That idea caught on, and since then, Galentine’s Day has become a time for women to celebrate the powerful female friendships in their lives.
It's the perfect chance for you and your gang to get together, have fun and show each other just how much you care.
We know that there are no traditional gifts associated with Galentine’s Day, but one thing's for sure – there are plenty of ways to make your gal pals feel special on this day.
But if your friends are nail enthusiasts, we've got just the thing!
