Let’s face it, Valentine’s Day isn’t for everyone… but Galentine’s Day is. Specially designed to replace Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day is the celebration of the best kind of love: the love between you and your closest friends. Besides being an excellent play on words, Galentine’s Day is an excellent excuse to get together for a long catch-up session, and maybe exchange some gifts! In the spirit of showing love, we’ve put together a list of gifts for Galentine’s Day that are also from local, cruelty-free brands – because showing love to animals and the homeland is important too.
For the glam galentine, Velvet Vanity’s creamy matte lipsticks are the perfect Galentine’s Day gift. Featuring 10 luxurious shades ranging from a nude to deep reds and browns, Velvet Vanity’s lipsticks mirror the luxury of high-end brands without the crazy price tag. All their products are 100% vegan and cruelty-free, and sure to please even the most fussy of galentines!

We here at MissMafia know that make-up isn’t quite for everyone. Some may choose to embrace the bare-faced beauty aesthetic (a la Alicia Keys) for all kinds of reasons, whether it’s due to sensitive skin or due to the fact that they just aren’t that into make-up. Perfect for the low-maintenance galentine, Wunderbath’s products range from candles, soaps, bath bombs and lip balms to essential oils, and are all natural, handmade and paraben-free. Perfect for that guilt-free pampering session 😉
