It’s February. The month of love! (Cue hearts and all things pink)
But who says romantic love is the only one that matters? You and your gals have been through everything together — career changes, life changes, endless travel plans, and so much more.
Galentine's Day started as a little joke in a 2010 Parks and Recreation episode, but 12 years later, it’s still a thing! Galentine's Day is celebrated on February 13th, and it’s the perfect time to kick it with your friends, or as Leslie Knope would say, “celebrate one another.”
You could go all out by planning a little soiree at home, and decorating your place, fixing some cocktails, and watching a bunch of sappy rom-coms. You could also do a cute little gift exchange, or go out for brunch.
No matter what you do on Galentine's Day, there are plenty of wonderful gift ideas that are the best gesture for this happy, heartfelt holiday.
Gift ideas for your girls
Subscriptions are all the rage these days. It’s the gift that keeps on giving
There are plenty of excellent flower subscription services on the market, based on your location. They deliver hand-picked flowers straight to your door, and you can choose from a weekly, fortnightly, or monthly delivery.
Simply choose how much you would like to spend each month, then decide how long you would like your subscription to last. We’d recommend looking out for an option that comes with recyclable packaging, and ideally plastic-free!
We can’t think of a better place than Grove Collaborative to get your hands on the best cleaning supplies. According to their website, “At Grove, we're driven by the belief that sustainability is the only future — and what we do now matters. Grove creates and curates 150+ sustainable, high-performing brands that meet our four-point standard: uncompromisingly healthy, beautifully effective, ethically produced, and cruelty-free.”
You don’t have to choose between a clean home and a clean planet. At Grove, you don’t have to. Every order you place is plastic neutral. Every shipment is carbon neutral.
Did I read that right?!
YES YOU DID!
Cocktail subscriptions have become a cool phenomenon of late. These boozy deliveries give you everything you need for a cocktail night in, delivered direct to your door. Generally, here’s how it works: They send you the ingredients, and you make the drinks yourself.
It comes in handy little kits, and while many of them are pretty basic, you can get some fairly high-end, delicious options that let you whip up a bar-quality cocktail in the comfort of your own home.
If you’re gifting a cocktail subscription, you can customize the number of drinks you want to send, how often you'd like your subscription to arrive, and you can specify your gal pals’ favorite spirits.
You can turn your friends into expert mixologists.
Girls night just went up a notch, eh?
Stylish House Shoes
And lastly...who doesn't have friends spending more time at home? Whether she's working from home or the hostess witht he mostess, gift your girlfriends a pair of Dooeys house shoes. You can choose between their House Loafers & House Mules, both equally stylish, supportive, and sustainable.
Remember, you don’t need presents to celebrate Galentine’s Day. It’s just a celebration of friendship and the women who stay by your side as romantic relationships evolve. It’s a day dedicated to showing the most important people in your life how much you care about them. It’s heartfelt. It’s cheesy. But isn’t that what makes it so special?
