It may have started out as a fictitious holiday on Parks and Recreation, but we’ve embraced Leslie Knope’s idea of Galentine’s Day more than wholeheartedly.

It’s the time to celebrate and treat the incredible women in your life – oh, and yourself too.

1. philosophy body wash, $30

Not only is this Instagram-worthy product a serious multi-tasker as a body wash and bubble bath, it’s also CINNAMON BUN scented. Who needs a relationship when you can literally smother yourself in dessert-scented goodness? It’s also the gift that keeps on giving as there’s a genuine cinnamon bun recipe printed on the bottle.

2. Jo Malone Red Roses Floral Box, $260

Maybe it's your mum, maybe it's your best friend - either way we think any woman will love this luxurious gift box from Jo Malone. Proving flowers alone just don't cut it, it features their red rose cologne nestled in a box of beautifully arranged deep red roses.

4. Lush Prince Charming Shower Gel, $19.95

6. Burt’s Bees 100% natural lipstick in ‘Ruby Ripple’, $19.95

Got a friend who won’t wear lip colour because she was born without the Proficient At Applying Lipstick gene? These lipsticks are the solution. While the pigment is beautiful, it feels more like you’re applying a nourishing balm than a lipstick. And it can be layered - one quick swipe and a lip smack will give you a light stain, two swipes will give you full-on colour. It’s idiot proof, I assure you.

Available exclusively in selected David Jones stores throughout March 2016. From April 2016 onwards it’s available in David Jones, Myer, Priceline and selected pharmacies.
