1. Brownie Box, £18.99 | Cutter & Squidge

Galentine's Day is all about celebrating the wing women in our lives. And I can think of no better celebration than a box of mouth-watering brownies delivered to the door. Handmade in London, flavours include strawberry shortcake, salted caramel, and red velvet. Order up until 4 pm for next-day delivery.

2. Eleanor Bowmer 'You Are Amazing' Hearts Bone China Mug, £11.95 | John Lewis

What good is a box of brownies without a cuppa? This bone china mug is the perfect Galentine's gift if your bestie loves a brew. It perfectly captures the Galentine's sentiment since it's adorned with hearts and positive, empowering statement. Plus it's dishwasher and microwave safe.

3. Caroline Gardner Tape Measure, £10 | John Lewis

We all have that one amazing gal pal who's a dab hand at DIY. Celebrate her this Galentine's Day with this super cool tape measure neatly tucked inside a classy Caroline Gardner box. Whether she's a dress-maker, crafter or a builder, she's sure to cherish this practical pressie.

4. Pink Pepper Eau De Toilette, £11.95 | Marks & Spencer

From the practical to the frivolous, this limited-edition fragrance is the perfect Galentine's gift for that friend who deserves to feel beautiful. Pink Pepper is a sweet but spicy scent with hints of vanilla and floral jasmine. It comes with a tester of Warm Neroli so if I were you I'd pop that little extra in your handbag and keep it as a reminder that you're pretty special too!

5. Percy Pig Scented Nail Polish Duo, £15 | Marks & Spencer

Talking of frivolous... if you've got a mate who goes mad for Percy Pig (and we all know someone who can't resist...) then treat her to this wacky polish duo - that even smells like Percy Pigs once it dries! It's not just a gimmick though. This is the Nails.INC long-wear formula and it comes with their patented wide brush for perfect application every time.

6. Bath Bomb Heart Trio, £12 | Tesco

Lucky old me received this beautiful heart-shaped gift set in the post from Baylis & Harding this week and I couldn't leave it out of our best Galentine's gift roundup. You get three luxurious jojoba, vanilla and almond oil bath bomb fizzers inside which smell divine and leave your skin feeling super silky. But the best part is the packaging - you can't help feeling like a million bucks when you unbox this heart-shaped box. It also makes a lovely keepsake.

7. Under Water LED Disco Light, £10 | Oliver Bonas

If bath bombs seem a bit sedate for your party-loving gal pal, treat her to a boogie in the bath with this fabulous underwater LED disco light. It's 100% waterproof and projects multi-coloured light patterns through the water. The reviews are rocking. 'Great packaging - bought as a gift and one for myself,' wrote one happy customer. 'Works brilliantly and gives a luxury spa feel to a bubble bath. Love it!' 


Image

8. You're My Jam Purple & Gold Ankle Socks, £7.50 | Oliver Bonas

Tell your Galentine how much you love her with these cute pink and purple socks with gold sparkly heels and toes and a stripy hem. They're embroidered with the phrase 'you're my jam' so she'll feel the love from her head to her feet! 


Image

9. La Gioiosa Prosecco Gold, £12 | Amazon

If Galentine's means getting together for some fizz, spoil the girls with this delicious prosecco presented in a beautiful gold-coloured bottle. I've sampled this and it knocked spots off my usual choice of bubbles. The fruity flavour of crisp apples and the dry, fresh taste is definitely something to be savoured with friends.


Image

10. Kylie Cosmetics Matte Lip Kit, was £28, now £22.40 | Boots

If your Galentine loves a beauty fix she'll be blown away by the Kylie Cosmetics Matte Lip Kit. It contains a liquid lipstick and matching lip liner and comes in a range of high-pigment and long-lasting shades for the perfect pout.

11. Seven Days of Hearts and Kisses Countdown Calendar, £40 | Moonpig

This is my go-to gift when I want to spoil a girlfriend and it never fails to impress. Instead of one gift you get seven lovely items hidden away inside the box. It's a bit like a mini advent calendar containing 7 days of treats. It's such a lovely gift to receive and is guaranteed to make your Galentine feel lavished with love.


Image

12. Sisterhood Bar Necklace, £25 | Moonpig

Jewellery can be a tricky gift when it comes to Galentine's Day - you don't want to risk outshining her fella - but this sisterhood necklace has stolen my heart. What a lovely trinket to treat your bestie to and the perfect way to remind her that it'll always be sisters before misters.


Image

13. Love & Friendship Jar, £12.99 | Amazon

This is a pretty lovely gift to show your girlfriends just how much they mean to you - all year round. Inside the jar are 31 positive, uplifting quotations to remind the recipient of all the reasons why your friendship is so special and worth celebrating every day.


Image

14. Dear Love, With Love Journal, £16 | NOTS

This has to be one of the best Galentine's gifts you could choose - especially for any female friend who loves words and journalling. Inside, she can write letters to those she loves, has loved or has lost. The purpose of the journal is to bring closure to relationships that she might not have had the opportunity to turn the page on, and there are lovely encouraging quotes printed throughout. 


Image

15. You Are My Fave Human Bean' Cookie Letterbox Gift, £17 | Not On The High Street

This is adorable! Show your Galentine that they're your fave with this cute cookie gift set featuring a pair of cuddling beans in a personalised cookie can, along with six hand-iced cookie bean friends. The letterbox packaging is fully recyclable and you can personalise the gift card inside.


Image

16. Serene Pink Vegan Zip Around Wallet, £49 | Labante

This is a little more spendy but if you're looking for a sustainable gift for your fashion-loving friend to mark Galentine's Day, this luxurious zip-around wallet is a lovely way to encourage her to think about your friendship every time she reaches for her wallet - without costing the earth. It has an internal zip pocket, multiple interior card slots, and a note compartment.


Image

17. Personalised Face Cushion, £15 | Prezzybox

For the gal pal who's found her other half, the ultimate Galentine's gift to make her smile is surely a cushion with his face on! Or, if you wish you saw each other more often, pop your own face on it so she can give you a hug whenever she likes! You can also add some personalised text to the back and the cusion is machine washable. 


Image

18. Boobalicious Porcelain Mug, £12.95 | Not On The High Street

A cheeky present that'll hold their cuppa or morning coffee. This boob mug is sure to be received well by your bestie and will no doubt serve as a sweet reminder of you when going in for a slurp too. We love the chic colour combination of gold and pale pink, which makes it look way more expensive than the £13 price tag.


Image

19. F*ck Marry, Kill? Card Game, £7.99 | IWOOT

One of the best Galentine's gifts for friends. You know the game - except here's all the horrid concoctions and ridiculous suggestions to help you play it properly. From celebrities like Gordon Ramsay and Meghan Markle to TV favourites like Homer Simpson and 'your friend's grandmother'. Here's the only thing you need for a great Galentine's night in.


Image

21. Joma Jewellery 'A Little Friendship' Heart Bracelet, £20 | Moonpig

Nothing is more personal or sentimental than a piece of jewellery, picked out by someone who knows and loves you well. We've found this friendship themed bracelet that fits the bill perfectly - without breaking the bank. One of the best Galentine's gifts for friends who favour some silver embellishment. And it comes with a sweet message too!


Image

22. Lyre's Pink London Spirit, £17.60 | Lyre's

Crafted to capture the essence of a Pink Gin, this premium, non-alcoholic tipple is just the thing to toast a sober sister with. Team with ice, a slice and your favourite tonic. And serve alongside some tasty nibbles to complement your girly gossip.


Image

23. Lindor Blood Orange, £6 | Lindt

Trust me when I say that this new enticing flavour from the Lindt Master Chocolatier is outstandingly good. If your bestie is a Lindor lover - and who isn't? - then she'll adore you for gifting her a box of her fave milk chocolate truffles filled with this new smooth and rich blood orange filling. Delish.
