Oh, February! The shortest month but with the biggest bang around when it comes to birthdays (wink, wink) and festivities! Over the last year, I got to reconnect with my friends and really bond over our sisterhood. It may or may not have been frequently fueled by bad food choices.
I've been feeling particularly blessed over our friendship that I teamed up with Babbleboxx to give my Galentine-enthusiast readers the top gifts to give. Less time searching, so you can have more time bonding.
Below, you'll find the perfect gift that will be sure to bring a smile to that someone special.
For the Beauty Maven: Perfumania Has Got You Covered
Ever since I first stepped into a Perfumania, I've been obsessed with their vast array of delightful scents. Back then I used to pester my dad into getting me the latest scents but now I'm old enough to treat gal pals to a new signature scent. I tested out the Dolce by Dolce & Gabbana at Perfumania and fell in love with the floral feminine mix that blends Neroli and White Amaryllis. The end result is a flirty but sophisticated scent.
Have a gal pal that's more undecided (i.e. she's a chronic returner) then the next best gift is a Perfumania gift card. With the help of fragrance experts, she'll be able to find her very signature scent in store or online.

For the friend with a Sweet Tooth: Let her Know Edible Arrangements Are Meant for Sharin
Go above and beyond with Edible Arrangements Edible Signature Chocolate Box or their Valentine's Day Bouquet. The brand is synonymous with the holiday of love, and who can blame them? Their fresh fruit and gourmet chocolate are a crowd pleaser. My favorite part about getting any of their bouquets are chocolate covered strawberries - so good! In case you'd like more chocolates to share I recommend adding on the Signature Chocolate Box which features recipes by master chocolatier Jacques Torres. There's a hazelnut crunch flavor in it that's absolutely amazing.
I'll be placing an order for Galentine's Day so dessert is covered on my end :). I highly recommend getting in your order sooner than later, but hey life happens which is why they offer same day delivery too.
Check out their website here and let me know what you get :).
Right now they’re offering everyone $10 off when they spend $39+ through 2/11/17 with code SAVE3966!
The Adventurous Friend: A Casio Watch that Won't Quit
If you haven't noticed by now, Casio is making a comeback and in the best way possible. Their watches are equal parts tough yet equal parts trendy making this perfect watch for the friend that's done for anything. Right now, I'm showcasing their G-SHOCK S Series GMA-S110CM-2A watch which features advanced technology, is water resistant, shock resistant, and so much more.

For the Creative Subway Dweller: Faber-Castell Adds New Dimension to Every Commute
As an art-school dropout, I would absolutely love to get gifted anything from Faber-Castell. Everything I've used is such great quality. But since this post isn't about me, it this whole shebang would make a great gift for friends that dabble in the arts or spend their subway commutes doodling to pass the time. You know, the creative type :).
Here's a quick rundown of my all-time favorites:
- Castell 9000® Graphite Design set: a favorite among illustrators thanks to its 16 degrees in hardness (great for writing, drawing, and sketching)
- PITT® Artist Pen 8 count Wallet in Black: another favorite among illustrators and doodlers
- PITT® Artist Pen Studio Gift Box of 24: lightfast inks in vibrant colors wont bleed through most paper (great for coloring books)
- Gelatos® Dolce 2 Gift Set: these are super pigmented and are great for mixed media projects since they're so easy to blend
You've been warned, their site is like heaven for those that love to color outside the lines. Check it out here.
For the Office Gals: Sunsweet PlumSweets are Healthy + Yummy
Stand out with sweet and delicious decadent dark chocolate plums. These bite-size scrumptious pieces are always a hit at the office or a cute way to thank your work wife. I definitely love how chewy these are when you first bite in. If you're still following your resolution diets (go you by the way!) you'll appreciate the fact there's no high fructose corn syrup and eating prunes support bone health. There's a tons of facts out there on why prunes, especially these tasty ones, are great for you but it's better just to pick up a package of Sunsweet PlumSweets.
Would love to hear if there's anything you scooped up for your BFF in the comments down below :).
