Yes, it’s February already (yikes, weren’t we just knee deep in the holidays?!) and we all know that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. While some of us dream of champagne-filled, candlelit dinners complete with fancy chocolate desserts, many of us cringe at the mere thought of this hallmark holiday.
So instead, we’ve chosen to channel our inner Leslie Knope from Parks and Recreation and celebrate Galentine’s Day! Amy Poehler’s character Leslie created this brilliant holiday to give you and your girlfriends an opportunity to celebrate each other. In the show’s 22nd episode, Leslie declared “Oh it’s only the best day of the year – every February 13th, my lady friends 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.” We think it’s pure genius.
The Summer House gals will be embracing Galentine’s Day over the next two weeks and would love to help you pick out those perfect gift for your girlfriends. From candles, jewelry, and furry throw blankets to coffee table accessories and one-of-a-kind artwork, we have an extensive selection of great gift ideas to make your girlfriends feel super special!
And never fear, all of our gift ideas can be used to celebrate the traditional Valentine’s Day as well!
