Give a quick thought to the most important woman in your life—whether that’s your mom or your best friend or your S.O.—and one thing is clear: The term ‘weaker sex’ does not apply.
Which is precisely why this Valentine’s Day, instead of going the classic flowers-and-a-box-of-chocolates route, it seems way more on point to celebrate just how strong your leading lady is—no matter if she’s your Valentine or your favorite Galentine. After all, it’s precisely why you (and everyone else!) love her so much.
And Hollywood seems fully on board with celebrating women’s strength. Just take a look at the golden pendants ahead that we’ve recently spotted dangling from the necks of Kristen Bell, Sophia Bush, and Emma Roberts. Each is inspired by historical icons worthy of aspiring to—Cleopatra, Sojourner Truth, Joan of Arc...even Medusa.
Bravolebs all about empowerment right now, too, with Southern Charm’s Kathryn C. Dennis making a GRL PWR statement every time she pulls out her iPhone affixed with a PopSocket stand that makes the statement loud and proud.
Ahead, 10 Valentine’s Day presents for the most powerful girl in your life.
Ban.Do ‘Strong Female Lead’ Tee
Let’s make it plain: She’s always been the lead in the story of her life.

What do Kristen Bell, Sophia Bush, and Emma Roberts have in common right now? The trio of Hollywood sirens have made this goddess-embossed pendant their personal amulet.
DVF for Lingua Franca ‘Fear Is Not an Option’ Cashmere Sweater
Inspired by design icon and entrepreneur Diane Von Furstenberg famous quote, this cashmere sweater’s message says it all.
Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Cleansing Ritual Duo
This beautifying duo gives a nod to the Greek goddesses who were early scene in modeling what being a strong woman is all about.
Everlane Bralette and Panties
A much more welcome take on the (arguably kinda selfish) tradition of giving her lingerie for Valentine’s Day. Everlane’s focus on a comfort and their dedication to using ethical factories that empower women around the world make this bra-and-panties set perfect fit.

PopSocket ‘GRL PWR’ Design
If it’s good enough for Southern Charm’s Kathryn C. Dennis...

A classic V-Day card is totally fine—and always, always welcome—but why not give her one that offers a compliments really wants to hear?
Alison Lou ‘Girl Power’ Single Earring
She can dangle this super-luxe gold Venus emblem (a.k.a. woman symbol) in honor of all the women who inspire her.
The Boss Mug
Because everyone knows exactly who’s in charge.
