February 13 is upon us and you know what that means—it’s time to get together with your best friends and celebrate Galentine’s Day! If you’re new to Galentine’s Day, let us fill you in.
Galentine’s Day is a holiday created by Parks and Rec character Leslie Knope to celebrate the love you have for your closest gal pals. Check out these five ways you can celebrate Galentine’s Day this year.
1. Enjoy a Galentine’s Day Brunch
Grab your friends and head out to your favorite food spot to enjoy a Galentine’s Day brunch. Take this time to chat about what everyone has been up to while enjoying some mimosas and tasty food (preferably waffles if you want to follow in Leslie’s footsteps). At brunch, have each person write down their favorite quality or memory of each other, then share them out loud. Remember, Galentine’s Day is all about celebrating your friendship with your girlfriends!
2. Plan a Gal Pal Movie Night
Assemble the squad and grab some blankets and popcorn for a movie night! Stock up on your favorite girl power classics (all Leslie Knope approved, of course) and rom coms to get the night off to a great start.
3. Take a Road Trip
Pack your bags and head on a road trip with your closest girlfriends. Explore a new town, make an appointment at a spa, visit a winery, or explore a national park! No matter where you all are headed, you’re sure to have a great time spending the day together. For an added surprise, keep the final destination a secret to surprise your best friends when you arrive.
4. Host a Wine Tasting
Use this upcoming Galentine’s Day as an excuse to host your very own wine tasting with a group of your gal pals. Make sure to include a few of everyone’s favorites, along with a lineup of new selections. Have everyone bring a small plate of food to snack on through the tasting.
5. Give Your Galentine an Anthurium
As an added bonus to the Galentine’s Day festivities, exchange gifts with your Galentine(s). Give your best friend a unique gift, like an anthurium! Anthuriums are bold colored, easy to care for plants that will put a smile on your Galentine’s face. This beautiful plant also features heart-shaped blooms that really show your love for your best friend.
Now that you are full of ideas, it’s time to start planning your Galentine’s Day activities. Don’t forget to browse the entire collection of our anthuriums here to find the perfect present for your closest friend.
