Six Galentine’s Gifts That Are Guaranteed To Please

Six Galentine’s Gifts That Are Guaranteed To Please

Who says that February has to be about your other half? At GLOSSYBOX, we believe in showing all the people we care about a lot of love – and that, of course, includes our best girlfriends. So why not celebrate your friendships and treat them with some Galentine’s gifts? It’s the perfect way of thanking them for always being there!

1. Glossier Valentine’s Bundle

If you’re on the hunt for Galentine’s gifts, you can’t go wrong with Glossier’s special Valentine’s bundle. Featuring their iconic lip gloss, pro tip brush point liquid eyeliner and a full-size you eau de parfum, it is guaranteed to please.

GLOSSIER Valentine's gift set

  • About the lip gloss: Forget the sticky lip glosses from the 90s that made your hair cling to your lips, this gloss is seriously comfortable to wear. Its thick formula is infused with vitamin E and jojoba oil, both of which leave your lips feeling soft and moisturised. You just sweep the clear, transparent formula onto your pout and it will give it a shiny, glass-like finish that lasts for hours. Better yet, you can choose between a clear, red or holographic shade.
  • About the pro tip brush point liquid eyeliner: This eyeliner is every makeup lover’s dream. Pairing a highly-pigmented, quick-drying and smudge-proof formula with a flexible brush tip, it allows you to create a smooth-looking, flawless winged eye every time. Sweep it along your lash line and it will stay put for up to 12 hours!
  • About the Glossier you eau de parfum: Who would have thought that a perfume could adapt to your skin? You boasts warm base notes of musk, ambrette and ambrox with earthy top notes of iris root and spicy pink pepper that smell slightly different on everyone. The result? A clean, fresh scent that is unique to whoever is wearing it.

Trust me, she’s going to love these three makeup bag essentials. Plus, she can flaunt them all year round and constantly be reminded of how much you value her friendship. Gift-wise, it doesn’t get much better than that!

2. An Accessory From Dorothy Perkins

Dorothy Perkins Galentine's Gift ideas

Your gal deserves only the best, so I’ve scoured Dorothy Perkins’ fabulous range of accessories to find the perfect Galentine’s gifts. Here are just three I love (all for £12 or less) that she’ll love too!

  • Coral Zip Top Cross Body Bag: They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but we all know it’s a great new bag. So why not spoil your bestie with some new arm candy? I mean, every girl loves a good handbag – especially when it’s a convenient cross body one in a gorgeous coral colour. Plus, this bag is big enough for everyday use, but also elegant enough for a night look. Ideal, right?
  • Hot Pink Satin Knot Headband: Whether it’s a headband, hair slide or simply a scrunchie, hair accessories are the perfect treat for your BFF. Personally, I’m obsessed with this sassy headband. A bold, vibrant colour and a stylish statement knot? Yes please!
  • Yellow Large Pocket Front Purse: An elegant new purse is another great choice! While Dorothy Perkins sell a wide range of sizes and styles, I’ve got a soft spot for this stunning yellow one. Simple yet sophisticated, your bestie will love it.

Take your pick from the above or check out Dorothy Perkins’ website for more ideas.

3. A GLOSSYBOX Gift Voucher

I might be a little biased, but you have to admit that a GLOSSYBOX Gift Voucher is a great Galentine’s gift! It will not only be a monthly reminder of how much you value your friendship, but you could even share the products and have fun, pamper nights together.

Choose between a 3, 6 or 12-month subscription and we’ll email the voucher over in just 30 minutes. Your friend can then redeem it and we’ll send them a box filled with 5 beauty-must haves every month! They’ll also earn GLOSSYCredit which they can spend on lookfantastic and have access to exclusive discounts on The GLOSSY Lounge. Trust me, she’s going to love it!

4. An Interflora Planter

Who doesn’t love getting a house plant? It may be cheesy, but a plant really does make a house a home. Plus, they last a lot longer than flowers yet still feel just as personal. So why not send some to your best friends as Galentine’s gifts?

Interflora, the wold’s largest flower delivery network, deliver a range of bouquets and plants around the world, but there are three that I’m particularly fond of (and they’re all £30 or less!):

  1. A Chic Pink Echeveria Planter: This plant not only looks great, it makes you feel great too. By producing oxygen, it refreshes the air, helps you to focus and can even help you sleep better. Plus, it comes in a stylish ceramic pot with feet.
  2. A Sweet Pink Orchid: Orchids are definitely one of my favourite flowers. They look so classy and are really easy to look after. This adorable pink one is delivered in a pink pot that looks like a flower cup.
  3. A Perfect Peace Lily: I’ll admit it, I have a soft spot for peace lilies because my grandmother used to keep them. You have to admit, though, they really are beautiful!

Interflora pack your plant with care and will even include a card with a personalised message. Better yet, it you want to send one outside of the UK, they deliver around the world.

5. ESPA – Time For Calm Gift Set

Every woman can always benefit from a moment of serene tranquillity. If your best gal deserves some time off, then why not treat her to the ESPA Time for Calm gift set? It includes three of their iconic restoring products: the Restorative Bath Oil, the Restorative Body Oil and the Limited Edition Restorative Balm.

All three boast a soothing scent of sweet orange, rose geranium and palmarosa which work together to uplift your senses and relieve stress. If she’s in need of some downtime, she’ll love this gift set!

6. An Adorable Disney Top

Disney is a classic that you just can’t go wrong with! I mean, who doesn’t love a bit of magic in their lives?

Zavvi sell a wide range of Disney tops that feature all of the original characters like Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Pluto, Donald Duck and Daffy Duck. They even sell your childhood favourites like The Lion King, Winne the Pooh, 101 Dalmatians and so much more! Of course, they also have a wide selection with our much-loved modern-day heroes from Frozen and Moana. You can explore the full range here. All of them make great Galentine’s gifts!
