Valentine's Day is quickly approaching and while some people can tend to feel upset about not having a significant other to share the holiday with, we’re here to show you it’s actually a chance to celebrate something just as spectacular as being in love! With a quick switch of a letter, Valentine’s Day becomes “Galentine’s Day,” which offers you and your friends the perfect opportunity to celebrate each other. It was started by the TV show "Parks and Recreation;" but it's turned into its own bona fide holiday, celebrated on February 13th. Who doesn’t want to celebrate all the wonderful women who have made a positive impact on their life?
Here are four ideas for celebrating “Galentine’s Day,” with other incredible women, that will make you smile:
One thing that is guaranteed to be a huge success on Galentine’s Day is brunch; because, who doesn’t love waffles and mimosas? Whether you’re having a fancy get together near the beach, or all at home in your PJ’s enjoying a cup of VitaCup, you and your ladies have the chance to spend time with people who lift you up and make you laugh. Take a look at this delicious avocado toast recipe for a simple, but crowd-pleasing breakfast!
The possibilities are endless when it comes to all the fun things you can do with your friends on this adorable take on the traditional V-Day! Whether your crew decides to go shopping and get facials, hit up a yoga class, or keep it simple with a snack-filled movie marathon, Galentine’s Day is about spending time with the friends you love the most.
Put the Phone Away
Once your friends all gather together, it’s important to put social media and technology away in order to be fully present. Engage, listen, and spend quality time with them. Use Galentine’s Day as the always necessary excuse to giggle and make memories with your girls.
Go All Out
If you really want to make this day special for yourself and your friends, throwing a Galentine’s Day party is a great idea! Get inspired on Pinterest and collaborate with your friends on the perfect party vibe. Food, drinks, decor, and games make for the perfect evening with the ladies to prove this day of love is about more than a significant other! We love this adorable sparkly cocktail recipe: Blood Orange French 75 and this vegetarian-friendly Veggie Frittata!
Love is Love
We couldn’t get all the way through this post without pointing out that we want everyone to enjoy this day of love! Galentines, bromances, and everything in between - V-day is all about celebrating the people you love.
Being single doesn't mean you have to skimp on the love. It might even make it easier to reflect on how many people around you truly love you to your core. Valentine’s Day is not about how you celebrate, it’s about who you are celebrating with. So go out and spread the love, people! xoxo
