“What’s Galentine’s Day? Oh, it’s only the best day of the year.” Ever since Amy Poehler’s fictional character on Parks and Recreation embraced the holiday for girlfriends, real women have been inspired to celebrate the love and support of their best gals. On February 13th gather for a festive ladies’ brunch, exchange gal-worthy gifts, plan a girls’ trip, or get ready to party. So go ahead – “Treat yo self” AND your friends!
1. Brunch Time: Waffles & Mimosas
Waffles, frittatas, or any of your favorite brunch foods, and you’re ready for quality time with your best friends. Get creative in the kitchen with new brunch recipes, like waffles with strawberry-rhubarb compote, and then pull out the champagne glasses for a celebration-worthy mimosa bar.
2. Gal-Worthy Gifts
Reward your most loyal girlfriends with our favorite gift picks. Share the love and gratitude with inspiring words, personalized crafts, or the forever-popular BFF jewelry.
The theme of the day is friendship, so gather the girls on Saturday night and entertain them in style with a buffet spread, shake things up with a cocktail party, or stock the bar for an all-out dance party.
4. Plan a Girls’ Trip
When it’s time for a little adventure, plan some fun with a girls’ trip. Take a weekend drive, plan an outdoor hike, or book that beach getaway (it’s Summer somewhere!).
