Galentine's Day Gift Guide

I recently noticed that Galentine’s seems to be trending on Instagram and Twitter just about and maybe even more so than Valentine’s. I ‘m kind of loving the fact that Galentine’s is starting to catch on. During my college years everyone used to refer to Valentine’s Day as National Singles Awareness Day, and Galentine’s is just so much more empowering than titling the day National Singles Awareness Day, which is kind of depressing…

The one year in college I didn’t have a boyfriend around Valentine’s Day one of my friends told me ‘welcome to National Singles Awareness Day’ and the whole day was kind of depressing, because even though I felt content in life the whole day became centered on something I didn’t have at that moment. Which was completely ridiculous because I had great friends, a fun social life, had awesome grades, and I didn’t even really want a boyfriend at that moment in time, but still the comment bothered me. If my friend was like ‘are you excited for Galentine’s’, I would have been so excited for the day. I for one am glad that Galentine’s is starting to make it possible for everyone to have something to celebrate and enjoy on Valentine’s, regardless of your relationship status.
Since Galentine’s has gained so much momentum over the past couple years I couldn’t resist putting a Galentine’s Day gift guide together. So whether you are looking to just treat yourself or a fellow girl friend here is my Galentine’s Day Gift Guide!

  1. Haha, even though Ben and I have been in a relationship for 10 years, I STILL think Valentine's Day is a tad bit ridiculous. I mean... Come on, you'd better be feeding me chocolate WAY more often than once a year! But, it's a perfect excuse to treat yourself. I know I've learned how to use it as an excuse to get my favorite burrito dinner! That alone is worth the hype!

    1. So agree about the chocolate! I'm kind of the hopeless romantic so I think it's kind of nice to have a day once a year that centers on love, even if it should be an everyday thing. But it is definitely the perfect excuse to treat yourself and a great excuse to have your favorite dinner!

  8. I love this post! Personally I've had a Valentine for the last few years but I'm wishing I had a Galentine to be honest. Sometimes all you need is a cosy night in with your girlies! x
