What initially began as a goofy TV holiday -- born from an overenthusiastic character who supports her friends to a degree that borderlines with the fanatic -- has become a beloved tradition in recent years. Galentine's Day, as it's known, is a day to celebrate the "awesome" people in your life that you are not, in fact, dating. Whether they're family members, coworkers, or lifelong friends, Galentine's Day is a wonderful excuse to gather them all together and just revel in each other's glory.
Or just get drunk and reminisce about old times. Whatever's on your agenda, really. But the one integral part of Galentine's Day, regardless of how you choose to celebrate? The presents.
Oh, the presents. You can go the handmade route, of course, but who has the time? Plus, there's just something about shopping for friends that feels extra-special.
