Some people warn against mixing business and friendship, but BaubleBar founders Amy Jain and Daniella Yacobovsky wouldn't have it any other way. Amy says, "We are extremely lucky. We know having a successful partnership while staying best friends is rare. Our relationship is unique in that we met in a work setting, in our first jobs out of college. So, we knew how the other would approach many work situations and we ultimately trusted each other."

As BaubleBar keeps expanding with jewelry, accessories, and home essentials, their bond has only gotten stronger. With Galentine's Day around the corner, who better to ask for gift ideas than best friends with a brand that specializes in gifting? Amy says she loves Galentine's Day because it allows her to "take a moment to show appreciation for those meaningful relationships" in her life.

In an exclusive E! interview, Daniella and Amy shared their Galentine's Day and Valentine's Day gift ideas, including picks from the BaubleBar sale section, Valentine's Day Shop, and NFL collection.

E!: Tell me about this year's BaubleBar Valentine's Day Shop.
AJ: It's all about items you want to give as gifts and wear for a fun date night. So, we have a mix of giftable initial jewelry, semi-precious stones, and meaningful motifs like hearts.

Add a modern aesthetic to you ensemble with these heart drop earrings, which come in 4 styles.

BaubleBar Juno Rose Quartz Necklace

Bring positive vibes to your day with BaubleBar's Juno Necklace. Choose from 7 stones, which are meaningful and aesthetically pleasing.

E!: Share a custom BaubleBar Valentine's Day/ Galentine's Day present. Why is a personalized item such a special gift?
AJ: I always love our custom blankets as a gift. It's super soft, machine washable and you can get a ton of use out of it.  I have the large size for snuggling up at home and the small size for travel. Personalized items allow you to really tailor a gift to the person you're gifting. While customizing a name is always popular, a lot of people incorporate words that represent an inside joke or numbers that symbolize something unique. It's those little touches that highlight those relationships you hold so dear.

E!: What is your advice for anyone who wants to go into business with a friend?
DY: Make sure you know how to have hard conversations. Know how to disagree, talk through differences, and come back together without carrying anger or resentment.

E!: BaubleBar's motto is "Embellish Every Day." Why is this such an important mantra?
DY: It's about finding joy and optimism, and it's important to us as a brand that we are always creating those moments for people.  It could be through wearing a product you love, having an amazing experience with our care team, or just seeing something we posted on social media that made you laugh. 

E!: Amy, what's your favorite gift you've received from Daniella?
AJ: Her friendship. Ha! I'm kidding. When Daniella had her youngest son, Charlie, I went to LA to meet him. When I got to her home, Charlie had just woken up from his nap. She told me I could go get him from his crib. I melted when I saw Charlie!

I completely missed what was on his onesie. And then I saw it, ‘"Will you be my Godmother?" I started hysterically crying with joy. We don't have the concept of godparents in Indian culture and while I consider both of Daniella's kids my own, this one really made my heart burst!

E!: Daniella, what's your favorite gift you've received from Amy?
DY: Many years ago (I won't say how many!) Amy had big plans for our birthday (we have the same birthday). She was having this big fancy dinner with her parents and her then-boyfriend, now husband. I didn't have any big plans or anyone coming to celebrate with me, and she insisted I come to dinner with them. It was at a restaurant with a REALLY hard reservation to get so I have no idea how they were able to squeeze me in.  It was such a special night and such a core memory that I always hold very dear.
