“What’s Galentine’s Day? Oh, it’s only the very best day of the year.” That’s how Amy Poelher’s Leslie Knope described Galentine’s Day in a 2010 episode of NBC's Parks and Recreation and we’d have to agree with her.
“The ladies celebrating ladies” holiday on February 13th is a day to honor your best girlfriends. You know the women we’re talking about - the ones who’ve been a part of your life since high school, won’t hold it against you if you return their favorite sweater with a coffee stain, and would have a box of tissues and a pint of Ben and Jerry’s waiting for you after a bad day.
Galentine’s Day provides the perfect opportunity to show your appreciation for these smart, savvy, sanity-saving ladies. Here are three great ways to show your best gal-pals just how special they are.
Write It Up!
In our digitally driven world, getting a note from a friend is a rarity, so what better way to show you care than to drop a Galentine's Day card in the mail? As the popularity of the holiday grows so does the variety of Galentine’s cards to choose from. From classic cards to LOL cards, you’re sure to find one as unique as your friendship.
Hosting a brunch is by far the most classic way to celebrate Galentine’s Day. In Leslie’s own words: "It's like Lillith Fair, minus the angst, plus frittatas." Follow Leslie’s lead by hosting an enviable brunch that includes waffles, frittatas, and of course, mimosas. Looking for a chic table-top piece? We are totally crushing on these Kate Spade polka dot champagne flutes.
Best Gal Gifts
No holiday is complete without gifts and Galentine’s Day is no exception. From BFF-worthy jewelry, to bestie mugs, and even a perfect man (chocolate, of course!), we’ve rounded up everything you need to create the perfect Galentine’s Day.
So go ahead and plan a romantic night with the man in your life on Valentine’s Day but save February 13th for your favorite lady friends. After all, it’s “ovaries before brovaries,” right?!
Happy Galentine’s Day!
