The Holiday You Need To Be Celebrating

We all know about Valentine’s Day on February 14th, but what about plans for Galentine’s Day on February 13th? This great holiday probably isn’t officially on your calendar considering it was only created nine years ago, but it may just be the most important day in all of February - in our opinions!

First thing’s first, how did Galentine’s Day become a thing? Fictional character Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation invented Galentine's Day in 2010. Celebrated on February 13th, Galentine’s is for celebrating the love you have for your lady friends.

Now that you know about this holiday you’re probably wondering how to celebrate. There's no wrong way to celebrate, but here are a few suggestions:

1. Host a brunch or a wine and cheese night for you and your ladies
2. Make a reservation at a fancy restaurant
3. Shower your friends with gifts (we have suggestions, of course)
4. Marathon your favourite movies
5. Make a group mani-pedi appointment

Of course if you’re looking to shower your friends with gifts, we have some super fun Galentine's worthy suggestions:
