I’m super excited for this 5FF from The Nerdy Girlie. Galentines day is the day before Valentines day to celebrate all the wonderful ladies in your life. As someone who is a deep skeptic of arbitrary holidays, ummm do we really need a donut day? Also if you aren’t living everyday as a chance to eat donuts and celebrate donuts… what are you doing? I do however believe wholeheartedly in celebrating the amazing women in your life. So without further ado here are my top 5 Galantines day gifts.
2.) Make a donation to a cause they support in their name. Planned Parenthood, ACLU, RAINN, Natural Resources Defense Council, Human Rights Campaign, and The Southern Poverty Law Center are just a few. You know what is important to the ladies in your life, give a meaningful and lasting gift in their name.
3.) Do you have a wine lover in your life? You should get them a wine glass that holds an entire bottle of wine! It is both a funny and practical gift for any wine loving lady in your life.
4.) Okay this is a little corny, but I also think it is also sweet and unique. What better way to say BFF than with giving them a star to name! I found a site, StarNamer that has a package to name a star for only $15. Better yet you could buy two stars next to each other so you and your bestie will have your place in the cosmos forever. Or you know until that star dies, but that probably won’t be for hundreds of thousands of years.
5.) Inviting your BFF(s) over for a home cooked meal and in home spa day is always a treat. Rachel from By the Pounds and I will get together and color our adult coloring books, watch a movie, and do a face mask. It is a lot of fun to spend quality time with your BF where you can be silly and talk about all the things going on in each other’s lives. Let’s be honest, I love texting, but it’s hard to communicate the bigger stuff in life or get tone from texting. Sitting down and having face time with your friends is so very important. You can try one of these DIY facemask recipes or treat yourself to a nice one from Lush.
There are endless ways to show the awesome ladies in your life some love this Galentines day. Even if you don’t want to celebrate this holiday, you should still make time to celebrate your lady friends!
