Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and whatever your relationship status is, February 14th is as good a day as any to celebrate the special people in your life. So, this year, make it a point to celebrate your friends with fun gifts that show you care. Whether they're a cocktail aficionado or like to get creative in the kitchen, here are 23 gifts to shop this Valentine's Day. (Or, should we say, Galentine's Day.)

Charcuterie boards are as popular as ever — and we can't get over how cute this Valentine's Day-themed one is. It will arrive at your bestie's doors chilled and pre-arranged, and this one includes a selection of 15 cheeses, meats, dried fruits, nuts and chocolates. It will arrive on an acacia serving board and comes with a box of crackers … so its truly ready to eat!

Regardless of your relationship status, Valentine's Day is the perfect occasion to indulge in a box of chocolates.

If you do want to keep it a little more classic with a box of edible chocolates, the Petit Valentine's Day boxes from andSons are a great option.

If you shop between January 30 through February 8, you'll save 30% on select Truff products, including this bundle — just use code VDAY30 at checkout.
