I made you a Galentine’s Day playlist on Spotify. If you know me at all, you know that Galentine’s is my very favorite holiday of the whole year. It may not be an “official” holiday, but it’s legit. Ladies celebrating ladies. A day dedicated to female friendship. In non-covid years, my girlfriends and I celebrate Galentine’s with a potluck brunch, cocktails, and favors. (Actually, last Galentine’s was the last time all of us got together before everyone started quarantining. Crazy how we had no clue what was about to happen). We’ll probably have a zoom celebration this year, but I still wanted to make party favors, so here is a fun mixtape for all you poetic, noble land mermaids out there. No sappy love songs here. All badass women.
If you are throwing an in-person celebration (safely, of course), check out my post on hosting an easy and festive Galentine’s brunch. There’s menu ideas, the world’s easiest cocktail. a dessert charcuterie board made of everything you can find at Trader Joe’s, & more. May I suggest (shameless plug) my Leslie Knope compliments coffee mug as a gift for your bestie? Books also make a great party favor, especially if you add this DIY Friends peephole frame corner bookmark.
However you celebrate this year, make sure your girlfriends know how much you treasure them, because if 2020 taught us anything, it’s that we need them more than ever.
