Celebrating Galentine's Day with Your Bestie
Welcome to February! We are getting ready for all things LOVE! And in addition to romantic love, this is a great time of year to celebrate the love you have for your besties as well. That's why we, at ELL Holiday Co. are celebrating GALentine's Day!
What is Galentine's Day?
GAL-entine's day's is celebrated on February 13, and this is the perfect time to celebrate the ladies in your life. This holiday originated from an episode of the TV Show Parks and Recreation.
"What's Galentine's Day? 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."Leslie Knope, Parks and Recreation, Season 2 Episode 16
Why WE Celebrate Galentine's Day
ELL Holiday Co.'s mission is to celebrate the spirit of giving all year long, and we especially want to celebrate and highlight the powerful ladies in our lives. I especially find it important to keep the spirit of collaboration over competition alive, so I make sure to share and support other small, women-owned businesses. And Galentine's Day is the perfect opportunity to do that.
How to Celebrate Galentine's Day with Your Bestie this Year
In previous years, my lady friends and I have gotten dressed up and met at restaurants for brunch. But this year, with many places closed, I wanted to find a unique way to celebrate.
- Find something online that your bestie loves, and mail it to her secretly.
- Host a virtual Galentine's Day Brunch (keep reading!)
- Shoot your bestie a text with a cute Galentine's day graphic (you can download one of ours!), and list three reasons why your life is better with her in it!
I hope my besties aren’t reading this because I’m working on a surprise box and (hopefully) they will meet me on Zoom for a virtual Galentine’s Day brunch!
In the box:
- Cosmetic bag
- Exfoliating bath ball
- Jade face roller
- Galentine's day t-shirt!
- Handwritten note
On the note, I have included a link to the Zoom meeting (I used bitly to shorten those long Zoom links, lol). And I asked them to bring their fave breakfast, rock their shirt with pj bottoms, and meet me on Zoom!
I can't wait to reconnect, chill, and get a little face-to-face time with the ladies!
