33 Valentine’s Day Treasures Good Enough For Your Best Pal

·13 min read

For those of us who are boo’d up, Valentine’s Day is an excuse to splash out on romantic experiences – dinners that we wouldn’t normally splurge on, a drink (or several) more than we’d usually enjoy, maybe some sentimental gifts to mark the achievement of couplehood. However, the folks who are currently relationship-free are usually left feeling WTF-ish. Why should couples have all the fun? The theme of this holiday is love, and it shouldn’t be restricted to those entrenched in monogamous pairs.

We suggest forgoing the limiting romantic approach and seizing Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to celebrate all of the relationships that you cherish — particularly, the friendships that have allowed you to survive life up until this point (especially the extra-trying 12-month period that we all recently experienced). So, if you’re in the market for some special gifts for your nearest and dearest besties, look no further — we’ve rounded up 33 options that will put a smile on your ride-or-die’s face come February 14th.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
