Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. While it’s always nice to receive a thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift from a new love interest or long-time partner, love isn’t only about romance. Whether you realize it or not, love surrounds you each and every day—regardless of your relationship status.
If you have a friend in your life who has been there for you through your life’s up-and-down, you should let them know how much they mean to you this Galentine’s Day.
Galentine’s Day is a relatively new “holiday” that debuted in 2010 thanks to Amy Poehler and her character, Leslie Knope, on Park and Recreation. So much emphasis is given to romantic love, but those strong female friendships are the ones that got us through breakups and career woes before “the one” was even a thought. All of the cheesiness that surrounds Valentine’s Day aside, it’s pretty special that we now have a day to celebrate our female friendships.
Even though Galentine’s Day isn’t an “official” holiday, it’s meant to be celebrated on February 13th. If you want to let the women in your life know you love them, consider one of the Galentine’s Day gifts below.
You also shouldn’t forget the love you have for yourself. In order to have a successful relationship with anyone, you must love yourself first. So why not gift yourself this Galentine’s or Valentine’s Day as well?
