With our holiday decorations packed away and our new years’ intentions freshly inked, we find ourselves in the middle of January in a blink of an eye. We’re starting to look ahead for the new year and what’s coming up? Valentine’s Day is less than 1 month away now! We absolutely love the trend of celebrating your girlfriends with “Galentine’s Day.”
Celebrated one day before Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day is a day to celebrate your non-romantic relationships and friendships with your girlfriends. Love it!
At T.E.D, we’ve been thinking of some creative ways you can celebrate your friends. Here’s what we came up with!
- Keeping it socially distant? Organize a Galentine’s Day Zoom dinner party with your friends. As the organizer, assign everyone a “dinner fairy.” As the dinner fairy, you are in charge of what your assigned friend eats for dinner. Door Dash Thai Food, Sushi, Pizza, or whatever the person would like and surprise them! Eat together on the Zoom and have a dinner party! You are treating a friend to dinner while getting dinner and all being together.
- Send Snail Mail. Depending on where you are sending mail in the country, your correspondence can take anywhere from 1-5 days. Plan accordingly. Grab some cards (we’re partial to The Paper Source’s collection of Galentine’s Day & Valentine’s Day Greeting Cards!) Take the time to write a nice message about your friendship and how much you appreciate your friend.
- Treat your friend to a small gift! A small gift that brings a smile to your friend’s face is a great way to show appreciation. There is always chocolate or flowers (no shortage of either in the month of February) or consider some of our favorite items at T.E.D. below.
Pom-pom cardholder keychain pouch – We love this fun, colorful and useful key chain pouch. Perfect for storing your credit cards, ID’s, and a bit of cash along with your keys. It’s priced right at just $12.00. It’s the perfect little something for your Galentine.
Gratitude Journal -- Perfect for your introspective, gratitude practicing friend. This hardcover journal has 365 papers and is full of details like a pink ribbon page marker, pink gingham interior covers, and gold foil imprinting. A tip? Write a short message in the front of the journal letting your friend know why you are grateful for her!
Pen & Notepad Set - A little something for your friend, we love this gift set of the pen & pad that reads, “Throw Kindness Around Like Confetti.” At under $20, this gift set will let her know that you’re thinking of her
