What is Galentine’s day, you ask? Well if you’re a Parks and Recreations fan, you might already know.
But if you aren’t, and this is news to you, like it was to me, Galentine’s day is the day before Valentine’s day and it’s all about women celebrating women. And I think we need more of that these days.
In the Latin culture, Valentine’s day is “El dia de el amor y la amistad”. Meaning, a day to celebrate love and friendship. And I grew up celebrating it that way. It wasn’t until I was passed my awkward teenage stage, that I started having a “Valentine”. So I’m all for celebrating with girlfriends on Galentine’s day.
Why not celebrate the smart, wise, and strong women in your life that make you who you are?
Here are 6 awesome ways to celebrate with your closest girls:
- Send them snail mail
No emails, no texts, no Instagram posts. Send them a nice note through the mail. Let them know you value their friendship. Something tangible is much more meaningful.
- Give them flowers
Do you have any friends that are single? Maybe this is the only gift they’ll get. And who doesn’t like flowers?
- Make a collage
A real collage not an app generated collage. Something she can hang on her wall.
- Give her a framed artwork (like the ones on the Styld by Grace Etsy Shop)
Frame a motivational, fun, silly, or inspiring word/quote that she can hang.
- Volunteer to help her with errands
If she has kids, she will thank you so much for this.
- Organize a girls night in
No makeup, no phones, no heels. Just the girls, messy buns, wine glasses, and some chick flicks. Oh, and popcorn.
Cheers to celebrating your gal pals this Valentine’s season!
