Gift Ideas for Galentine's Day

Thanks to Leslie Knope, Valentine's Day isn't the only day to celebrate your loved ones in February. Galentine's Day -- that is, Feb. 13 -- is for the ladies to get together to kick it with some breakfast favorites (gotta have those waffles and frittatas). If you're planning celebrate the Parks and Recreation femme's favorite holiday with your own set of gift bags for your besties, here are a few key ideas to help you along to make it "only the best day of the year," Leslie Knope-style.

Flower pens

Leslie gave her gals some hand-embroidered flower pens, but if you don't have time to whip out the stitch kit, these floral pens should still do the trick.

Personal journal

You might not have the time or energy to tap out a 5,000-word essay on why all your friends are awesome like Leslie Knope did, but you can give them a sweet little journal so that they can keep notes on their general awesomeness themselves.

Running shoes

Ann might've hated running -- and, by extension, Chris Traeger's enthusiasm for the exercise habit -- but she still did it because she knew it was healthy. If your gal pal is like Ann and suffers through her routine to stay fit, a good pair of kicks could help ease the pain of the process.

Razor scooter

If there's one thing Leslie loves, it's the outdoors, and if we've learned anything from her at all, it's that there is no age limit on having some old-fashioned fun. Of course, she's also very safety-conscious, so if you decide to get your pal a scooter, make sure you throw in a helmet, too.

Get them both on Amazon (scooter, helmet)
