GRL PWR: 5 Ways To Make This Galentine’s Day The Best Yet
By Glitter Girl
Before wishing a reluctant “Happy Valentine’s Day,” to those who observe, let’s take a moment to celebrate the *actual* most important holiday in February: Galentine’s Day. That’s right, we’re talking about the counterpart to February 14, aka the day dedicated to appreciating how much our friendships mean to us.
When it comes down to it, what is V-Day really about?
Celebrating loving, supportive relationships.
Who says those relationships must be romantic?
While lovers come and go, friends are what keep life rich through all the ups and downs.
They bring laughter, honesty, adventure, and a million other things to the table—hopefully margaritas are somewhere on that list.
This year, regardless of your relationship status, you and your gang should make plans to celebrate. Whether you learned it from the SATC girls, the Cheetah Girls, or the Golden Girls, the fact remains that your gals get you in a way that no one else can.
Gone are the days when Valentine’s Day is strictly the domain of loved-up couples. This year, we’re celebrating the real loves of our lives: our friends.
They’re the ones who stick by us through thick and thin (and all the breakups and makeups), so here’s how we’re turning this Valentine’s Day into Galentine’s Day and showering love on our besties.
1. Plan a friendship ‘date night’
We’re swapping a candlelit, romantic dinner for two for a date night with our closest girl (and guy) friends. Plan a night out at a restaurant (and who says it can’t be a little bit fancy?) and enjoy some quality time together.
If dinner isn’t your thing, make time for breakfast or brunch with your bestie to make sure they know just how truly special they are.
2. Give a gift that’s as unique as your friendship
Why not gift your gal pals an accessory that’s as unique and as bold as your bond? The fabulous new GG Phone Charms or the Glitter Heart Sunglasses in matchy matchy colours are super cute. And we know Besties always need to match.
3. Tell them what makes them so special
Gifts and quality time do go a long way, but sometimes, a bold declaration of love is the ultimate gift.
Go old school and write your besties a letter telling them just how thankful you are to have them around (bonus points for actually sending it in the mail) or harness the powers of social media with an Insta slideshow of your favourite friendship moments.
4. Throw a sleepover party to remember
Two years in a pandemic has taught us how to throw one heck of an indoor party – and nothing says “BFFs” like a sleepover.
Wear matching pyjamas, spread pillows and blankets across your living room floor, prepare the popcorn and get your Netflix queue sorted with some flicks celebrating friendship.
5. Pamper your gal pals with a spa day
Whether they’re new friends you’ve formed an instant bond with, or they’ve been by your side for years, treat your friendship soulmate with a spa day for the ultimate show of appreciation.
Book a mani-pedi for two or give them an hour to themselves with a relaxing massage. If DIY is more your style, set up a ‘rejuvenation station’ at home with scrubs, face masks and moisturisers for a cheap and cheerful night in.
Whatever your relationship status or plans this February 14, there’s one thing we know for sure: all forms of love deserve to be celebrated, so take some time to honour that unbreakable bond you share with your bestie.
