Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, which also means that the holiday all about celebrating friendships — Galentine’s Day — is coming up on Feb. 13. Galentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to show your besties how much you care by planning a fun brunch or night in with mimosas, games, and a White Elephant gift exchange. If you’re stumped on what to get for your BFFs, these White Elephant gifts for your Galentine’s Day exchange are sure to be a hit.
While you know your besties better than anyone, you may still need some inspo for Galentine’s Day gifts to get. You could always go the homemade route like Leslie Knope on
Parks and Recreation and make your BFF a hand-crocheted flower pen or mosaic portrait using bottles of their favorite sodas. However, these on-trend White Elephant gifts are probably more of what they’d actually like to unwrap for Galentine’s Day on Feb. 13.
Depending on what your crew likes to do whenever you get together, you can find a White Elephant gift that matches your tribe’s vibe.

You could also treat yo’ friends to some self-care must-haves like a sleep mask kit or a basket full of snacks for your next movie night in. Since you know your friends so well, it’ll be easy to find the present that will be a big hit at your Galentine’s Day White Elephant exchange just by looking at this list of 22 unique gift ideas.
