Both Valentine’s Day and Galentine’s Day are just around the corner and Hallmark delivers some great gift ideas for both holidays. If you are unsure what Galentine’s Day is allow us to educate you. Inspired by the NBC hit series Parks & Recreation, Galentine’s Day occurs every year on Feb. 13, the day before Valentine’s Day. Basically, it’s like Valentine’s Day, only instead of celebrating the love you have for your significant other, you celebrate the love you have for the women in your life- be it your sister, mom, daughter or gal pals. This year, why not exchange a few Galentine’s Day gifts before you exchange those Valentine’s Day gifts?
