Galentine's Day Gift Ideas

19th January 2022

Unforgettable Gifts For Galentine's Day

Over the past few years, ‘Galentine’s Day’ has seen a rise in popularity and you may be wondering what it is! Fun fact - It originated from an episode of the TV show, Parks and Recreation and although it’s not an official holiday, it’s taken on a life of its own.

And we can see why! Galentine’s Day - not to be confused with Valentine’s Day - happens on February 13th and is a celebration of female friendship. It’s a day to show the ladies in your life what they mean to you and celebrate the strong friendships you share.

So, to help you create the best gift ever, we’ve pulled together our favourite Galentine’s Day gift ideas.

Picture Perfect Prints

You can’t go wrong with the personal touch. Why should your fondest memories live in your phone? Instead, get creative with Photo Prints. Retro Prints are a fab way to remind your friends of fun you’ve had in the past and they come in a beautiful presentation box, so they can be kept safe forever. If you’re after another style, Mini Prints have a fun, fresh-out-of-the-photo-booth feel.

Design Tip: Have fun and play around with matte and gloss finishes and text or write a special message to complete your gift.

A particularly special way to present lovely memories of a friendship is with a CEWE PHOTOBOOK. We love the idea of collating your favourite memories from the previous year or maybe even your entire friendship. If your friend is into fashion, why not make a keepsake book of their most stylish looks? The potential is almost limitless and it comes with a beautiful hardback cover, so that they can keep it on their coffee table.

Phone Case

Let your loved one take a little piece of loveliness everywhere they go with a Personalised Phone Case. If you’re buying Galentine’s gifts for friends in a group, or a partner or matching ones are a sweet idea. They’re available for all of the most common smartphone manufacturers and a style to suit any taste. Choose from silicone, sleeve, leather, sideflip and more.

Greetings Cards

A personalised greeting card is so precious and a great opportunity to let your creativity run wild. Choose a fabulous photo and think of something lovely to say - you could even try your hand at poetry.

If you’re celebrating a gal pal who’s far away, pop it in the post. Why not print a set of 10 and dish them out to all of the lovely ladies in your life? Including a photo means it can stay on display for a long time, or even be popped in a frame.

Photo Mugs

Imagine being reminded of happy times every time you make your morning brew? That’s the magic of a Photo Mug. The beauty of this gift is that it doesn’t need to match their decor, as it will include beautiful pictures.

Once you’ve picked out which photos to use, choose the style of mug that your loved one will like. If they can’t start their day without caffeine, choose a Latte Mug. If you’re unsure, go for the classic Porcelain Mug. Or, for some real ‘wow’ factor, give someone the Magic Mug as the photo only appears once hot liquid is poured in. So. Much. Fun!

A Galentine’s Day Gift Basket

One of the joys of a gift basket is that you can fill it with all of the things a loved one adores. You can fill it with sweet treats or even make it into a pamper hamper and add some skincare. A little basket of chocolates, along with a card and a photo keyring would make a perfect gift. If you’re after some more inspiration, we wrote a blog post full of lovely ideas to create the perfect wellness hamper.

Happy Galentine’s Day!

Sometimes, the ladies in our worlds are the true loves of our lives. Ready to get creating? The personal touch makes for the best Galentine’s gifts - it’s time to gather the girls and have a good time.
