If you don’t have a plan with your best gal pals yet- it’s time to make one! Cheers to Galentine’s Day. This celebration of female friendships is always celebrated on February 13th, the day before Valentine’s Day. It’s the perfect time to celebrate all those late calls, emergency brunch dates, and crazy nights out with gifts and appreciation!

This holiday is all about supporting and encouraging the women in your life. It has Pure Romance written all over it! If you are new to Galentine’s Day, or you are just need fabulous ideas, we’ve got you covered! Here are some gifts that you can get your girls to let them know how much you love them!

Self-Care Kit

This is something that can be as simple, intricate, personalized, or general as you want. Anything that lets them step away from the stresses of life and helps them recharge is perfect! This can look different for everyone, which is where the personalization comes in.

Some people recharge with skincare and a nice bath, some people recharge with a nice dinner, and others do it with hobbies such as reading or crafting. Get creative and build a basket that shows how much you know and love your friend.

For example, if your friend loves making their bathroom into a mini spa, put together a kit that reflects that. Grab some bubble bath, CBD-infused Epsom salts, and hydrating body oil to give them the alone time they deserve. The combination of delicious fragrances and nourishing ingredients make for a skincare routine that your friends are sure to love.

Plan an Experience

Fun memories and experiences are the things you are going to remember about your friendships, not the gifts you were given along the way. So, take this opportunity to plan a fun activity for you and your friend(s) and make some memories together!

Slumber Party! At what age did we decide that we were too old for a classic slumber party? Get out the cheesy rom-com movies, stack up the candy and popcorn, get comfy pajamas and face masks, and just enjoy each other’s company.

Brunch! Get together and have a late breakfast. This can be as fancy or as casual as you want! You can get all dressed up and go out for brunch, or you can do it in your pjs at home after your slumber party! Class it up with some love-themed drink or treats from our Pinterest page!

Go thrifting! Plan a trip to the thrift store and give each person a budget. Each of you find the most Valentine’s-themed outfit possible, and then have a competition/fashion show back at home. This is not only a fun-filled afternoon full of laughter, but you’ll also make memories to last a lifetime.

Personalized Photo Album

Give your friend a very sweet gift that they can hold on to for years to come. Get a cute photo album and print off all your favorite pictures. If you want to get crafty, you could do a scrapbook instead of a photo album! Looking back on a book like this will remind them of your love and can also give them a good laugh or smile if they are having a rough day.

Galentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to relax and have fun with your friends. So, start a Galentine’s Day tradition this year and make it a day you will never forget! And use these gift ideas to show your girls how much you love and appreciate them! Still scratching your head? Find the perfect gift at Pure Romance!
