The idea of Galentine’s Day was first hatched in an episode of “Parks and Recreation” — all the way back in 2010. In the show, Leslie Knope threw a party to celebrate her best gal pal the day before Valentine’s Day. The idea took off in real life, and from then on, February 13 become known as “Galentine’s Day,” a day for ladies celebrating ladies.

Fast forward to 2022 and we could all do with a bit of Galentine’s Day cheer in our lives. In recent years, we haven't been able to hang out with our gal pals, our mom tribe or our work wives as much as we used to. But we can still honor these special people from afar with some thoughtful gifts crafted by Seattle-area BIPOC businesses — because these artisans deserve our love and need our support, too. Here are six sweet gift ideas from awesome businesses to help share the love this February.

A beautiful brass necklace

The Cura Co. is a local, female-forward Seattle shop that sells apparel, jewelry, accessories and home wear all crafted by BIPOC creators. This stunning circular brass necklace would make a great gift, and it's a fair-trade product so you know your dollars are going directly back to the producers. 

Superwoman earrings

These metallic gold lightning bolt leather earrings from Mountain Fox Goods will make any woman feel like a superhero. All products from this Pike Place Market store are handcrafted with a focus on design minimalism and durability. 

A pretty painted scarf

Misha Zadeh is a local Seattle artist who sells her work on Etsy. Head on over to her store to find beautiful hand-painted stationery, housewares and textiles. We think this whale and coral watercolor shawl would make an awesome Galentine’s Day gift for a favorite friend. 

A whimsical wind chime

This beautiful green owl wind chime from Kobo in Seattle creates soothing sounds and will brighten up any front porch or backyard. Check out Kobo (meaning artist's workspace in Japanese) for lots of other beautiful and unique gift ideas for your gal pals. 

A stylish mug

Our daily cup of joe has become even more sacred during the pandemic, and this stylish Salish pattern cup will elevate your daily ritual. This beautiful cup is inspired by traditional Coast Salish weaving design. 

A fresh new scent

With kids (especially teenagers), it can be hard to keep your home smelling fresh. So, most moms will appreciate a fragrant and refreshing candle like this grapefruit mint one from Sukie’s Candle Company. All candles from Sukie’s are handcrafted, vegan and eco-friendly, and Sukie herself is a Seattle native.
