We all know that Valentine's Day is a made-up holiday meant to torture singles and couples alike across the U.S. This fact was the inspiration for Leslie Knope of "Parks and Recreation" to create "Galentine's Day:"
"Oh, it's only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It's like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas." -- Leslie Knope
Basically, it's an opportunity to celebrate and appreciate your best girlfriends, who are, after all, more important than a stupid relationship anyway (says the single girl).
So in the spirit of Leslie and Galentine's Day here are 16 gift ideas that could put a really silly smile of some of your friend's faces. And hey, who's to say we can't celebrate each other all year long? Like Leslie says: "Ladies celebrating ladies."
I'm all for it.
