As we all know, tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, but not everyone has a boyfriend or girlfriend. You know what everyone does have, though? A bunch of great gal pals! And even though we’re two days away from all of the discounted chocolates our hearts desire, today is Galentine’s Day, the most important holiday of the year!
What is Galentine’s Day, you say? Watch the video below and get educated!
So yes, it’s a day where we can grab our closest lady friends and bask in the glorious love and friendship of the women around you. We’re sure the guys can keep themselves busy the one day of the year — Grand Theft Auto, watching the Olympics, picking up last-minute flowers for tomorrow. Whatever. Us girls don’t care today.
(Taylor has a slightly different name for this day.)
How? Well, here are a few ideas as well as some Galentine’s Day necessities…
MUST HAVE: WAFFLES
As Leslie Knope notes on that fateful episode of Parks & Recreation, Galentine’s Day is the day before Valentine’s Day where the ladies leave their men and “kick it breakfast-style” which of course involves lots of pancakes, waffles (Leslie’s personal all-time fave) and frittatas.
NEXT LEVEL: DESSERTS
Who doesn’t love desserts?!
MUST HAVE: A GOOD LOCATION
A chic restaurant totally works…
NEXT LEVEL: PAJAMAS
But what’s better than staying in with your besties and not wearing real pants!
MUST HAVE: A SMALL TOKEN OF LOVE
A hug, a box of chocolates — something to make your besties feel loved! (Leslie Knope gives her pals mosaic portraits…we wouldn’t go that far).
NEXT LEVEL: HANDMADE CARDS
Just to make it extra special! (We have no clue what the following GIF is, but WE LOVE IT)
MUST HAVE: A FUN ACTIVITY
Catch up with your friends by playing board games, trading some hot gossip or just doing this:
NEXT LEVEL: FRIENDSHIP FLICKS
Boy do we have an ultimate list of friendship flicks coming up for you — stay tuned!
MUST HAVE: YOUR CLOSEST GAL PALS
NEXT LEVEL: INVITING OTHER GREAT DAMES
The more the merrier!
