We’ve all heard of Valentine’s Day. Falling on Sunday 14th February 2021, this extra special day is perfect for showing your partner just how much they mean to you. But there’s another important event that falls the day before, on Saturday 13th February — Galentine’s Day!

What exactly is Galentine’s Day?”, you might be asking. This annual celebration was created by Leslie Knope of the TV series Parks and Recreation over ten years ago, as a way to celebrate her closest friends. Almost a decade later, and this fictional celebration is celebrated by many around the world; spending the day with their closest friends eating delicious food, sharing gifts with each other and just generally having a good time!

Of course, with the current lockdown restrictions, Galentine’ Day 2021 will be unlike any other we’ve had. In this blog post, we share some popular gift ideas to make sure that your Galentine’s Day is one to remember.

Home Pamper Kit

With many of us stuck at home for a significant part of the last 10 months, self-care is more important than ever. So, why not treat your closest friends to a luxury home pamper kit full of scented candles, body lotions, bath bombs, face masks and sleep mists? Visit the likes of Amazon, Lush or Boots to find pre-made pamper gift sets or if you’re feeling adventurous, you could even create your own personalised pamper sets for each of your friends!

Deliveroo Voucher

A Deliveroo voucher may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a present, but a good old takeaway could be just what your friends need during lockdown. At the very least it will save them from cooking a meal, which is always a welcome break. Even better, you have complete freedom over how much you spend on the voucher — and they have complete freedom over what they spend the voucher on.

Gemstone Rings

Do your friends have any earrings, rings, necklaces or other types of jewellery? Even if it’s just a selection of basic fashion jewellery, most of us have some sort of jewellery box. This Galentine’s Day, what better way to add to your friends’ jewellery collection than by treating them to a vintage solid gold gemstone ring? At Hatton Jewellers, we have a wide selection of diamond rings and gemstone rings that would make the perfect Galentines Day gift, ranging from just £112 to £3,999. If you want an extra special gift, be sure to choose a gemstone ring that features their birthstone.


Alcohol is considered a safe bet when it comes to buying a gift, whether your friends are craft beer fanatics, gin lovers or even just the occasional drinker. Some popular gift ideas include a selection of miniatures (like this rum set), a bottle of their favourite tipple or, for a gift that keeps on giving, a regular subscription box — we love this three-month cocktail subscription!

Wall Art

There’s no better time to spruce up your home than during lockdown. Why not give your friends the gift of a new year home makeover with some beautiful wall art? From traditional landscape paintings to contemporary art, framed motivational quotes to photo collages of loved ones, and everything in-between, there’s so much to choose from. If your friend has recently been furloughed or generally has a lot of time on their hands, you could even treat them to a challenging “Paint by Numbers for Adults”.
