When Is Galentine’s Day 2022
Lucky for you, Galentine’s Day falls on the Sunday 13th February, perfect timing if you’re looking to spoil your friends outside of uni hours.
It essentially came into our lives with the knowledge that being single isn’t a bad thing whatsoever, and we shouldn’t pull ourselves down JUST because we don’t have a partner in our lives *PREACH*
We shouldn’t live our lives just by the status of our relationships, or in fear that we’re going to be single forever, we should be spending this time celebrating our best friends and focusing on the positives in our life.
Enough of the pep talk, let’s celebrate Galentine’s Day in style and dive into our incredible list of the best gift ideas this year…
1. Mini Ugg Boots
If you’re on Tiktok then you’ll understand where we’re coming from – these Ultra Mini Ugg Boots are to die for! Fashion predictions in 2021 (somehow) knew these boots were going to come back into fashion and we’re not mad about it.
You might struggle to get them in your size as they’ve been sold out for a hot minute, but when they do come back you need to pick them up ASAP. They’re the perfect gift to get your bestie this Winter time, and they’re even wearable through till spring considering they’re so mini.
2. Makeup Revolution Bright Light Highlighter Strobe Champagne (Charlotte Tilbury Dupe)
Keeping on with the Tiktok theme, have you spotted the Charlotte Tilbury dupe on Tiktok? It’s obviously by the one and only – Revolution – and is said to be one of the best dupes of all time.
You may want to add more to your budget ‘cos this is the sort of present you’re going to want to buy for yourself as well.
3. Dyson Airwrap Dupe
Okay so, if you’ve got a FYP like ours then you’re bound to be inundated with Dyson airwrap videos – right? It’s painful, especially when you’re a student with no income and it’s £450 altogether…
However, the best case scenario is buying them the BaByliss Air Style, a pretty impressive dupe which will blow your bestie away. Featuring detachable heads, this is the perfect present at an extremely affordable price – what’s not to love?
4. Wowcher Mystery £99 Holiday Deal
