Galentine's Day, officially created by the beloved Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) from NBC's Parks and Recreation, is a way to honor the women in your life and expand the impact of this heart-filled holiday. In this now-infamous episode of Parks and Rec, Leslie Knope picked a few choice gifts for her favorite gals.
"If you look inside your bags, you will find a few things," she said in the Galentine's Day episode. "A bouquet of hand-crocheted flower pens, a mosaic portrait of each of you made from the crushed bottles of your favorite diet soda, and a personalized 5,000-word essay of why you are all so awesome."
While these gifts might be a stretch, the sentiment behind celebrating the best "gals" in your life is one we can all get behind. So in honor of Knope and the power of female friendship, here are some great ideas to celebrate Galentine's Day.
