Give the gift of spa days.

Romantic love is cool—but what's purer, more worth celebrating, than the love between best friends? Don't let the holiday's intimate underpinnings stop you from honoring it with those closest to you. Here's what to gift your pals, gals, and best friends forever.

Many of these products were chosen by our editor from the Shops at Seattle Met, the city's first online marketplace bringing the best local businesses together in one place. Keep shopping for more products from Seattle-area merchants:


Top Picks from the Shops at Seattle Met

We absolutely condone a true-blue spa day—but there's something about a self-care gift that keeps on giving, like 10 ounces of rose-scented exfoliating scrub from Seattle-based French Girl.


This sweet, red-and-pink box of chocolate-topped French pralines from Redmond-based chocolatier Wild Peaks Chocolate says, "All you need is love, and chocolates." But it screams Valentine's Day.


Celebrate the single life (or lament it, in a tongue-and-cheek sort of way) with a card, a bottle of wine or box of chocolates, and, perhaps, a wingman-escorted night on the town. 


For a truly special, sentimental take on the best-friend necklace, pick a custom quantity of pearls on a 14-karat gold chain from GLDN—two for you and your number one, perhaps, or three per person for an inseparable trio.


PNW-based Jennifer Fujimoto takes inspiration from Japanese folk art when handcrafting her cute ceramics. This flirtatious side-eye planter packs some serious, holiday-worthy personality. Just like your friend.


Is there a more classic Galentine's Day gift than a bottle of red wine? Pike and Western Wine Shop calls this their "favorite $20ish Washington bordeaux blend." Don't read too far into the name Involuntary Commitment—or do.


A friend who loves to bake will appreciate this festive riff on the classic bundt pan, especially since it comes from Nordic Ware (the trusted folks behind the original bundt). Pair it with a cutely printed recipe and some ingredients, like a really nice cocoa powder or a jar of decorative cherries, for a well-rounded gift.


Splurging on your bestie? Look no further than metallic, heart-heeled, vegan-leather shoes that are as unique as she is.


This adorably packaged (and Valentine's Day pink!) peony and citron scent from Antica Farmacista looks great on a bathroom counter—and proves that good scents come in small packages.


For a perfectly sweet gift that doesn't come with a hefty price tag, we frequently turn to Seattle-based (but internationally adored) Chunks. This raspberry-cream-swirl claw clip looks like something you'd find in an especially fashionable box of chocolates.

 

 

 

Top Picks from Other Retailers

Both spending Valentine's Day single? Celebrate that with a champagne toast in two matching pink borosilicate glass champagne flutes from Maison Balzac. That's a couple we can get behind.


A dedicated home chef who's equally dedicated to home aesthetics will swoon over this holiday pick from Le Creuset. We especially love it in neutral, moody black.


Elevate Coffee, Partners Coffee Roasters

$17.00

Available in a variety of grinds to suit your pals' coffee-brewing preferences—from Chemex to cold brew to good, old-fashioned whole bean—this is the perfect, just-personalized-enough gift to spread around the friend group. 


If your best friend has four legs, they probably need this sweet, heart-adorned Little Beast sweater (the dog equivalent of an It-girl brand).
