Valentine's Day is coming up, and as far as we're concerned, it's a great excuse to show your love to anybody that's special in your life. So why not celebrate Galentine's Day - or Palentine's Day - by sending a thoughtful gift to your friends? Single or in a relationship, the idea is to show your besties how much you care about them.

When is Galentine's Day 2023?
As per the wise guidance of Parks and Recreation's Leslie Knope (who we can thank for the notion of Galentine's Day in the first place) the special day is actually supposed to be celebrated on 13 Feb - though we'll let you off either way.
"What's Galentine’s Day? It's only the best day of the year!" she says during an episode in the show's second series, which prompted the popularisation of the term. "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," Amy Poehler's character says.
What's not to love? It's the perfect day to show your closest friends you care by sending a thoughtful gift - scroll down to see our suggestions...
