Parks and Recreation’s fictional politician Leslie Knope may the one responsible for the genius advent of Galentine’s Day, but the pre-Valentine’s Day event (honored February 13 of each year) is now a beloved and bonafide day of self-love, and of course, the perfect excuse for getting to indulge with your besties—whether you’re single or attached. Valentine’s Month has always been one of my favorite parts of the year. I personally adore the quintessential ‘Hallmark Holiday”— not because I find it to be particularly significant in sentiment per se, but because I love all things red and pink, eating copious amount of chocolate sans the guilt (um, it’s a holiday people!), and heart and cherub motifs are my absolute favorite.
Regardless, Galentine’s Day is just a straight-up fun reason to celebrate yourself and your die-hard girl gang, who’s there for you whether you’re happily coupled up, in the process of a gut-wrenching breakup or charting the murky waters of dating on the apps. Basically, your girls (or guys) have your back, so the fact that Galentine’s Day wasn’t even an actual thing until 2010 is frankly, kind of surprising. Alas, it’s been going strong for a decade, and if you want to gift the leading ladies in your life this holiday, we have some pretty stellar ideas at a wide array of price points to cater to just about any budget. “Every February 13, my ladyfriends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas.” – Leslie Knope. Cheers!
