As Leslie Knope once said, “February 13th, Galentine’s Day is about celebrating lady friends.” And that’s exactly what we’re here to do! Though nowadays you can celebrate not just your lady friends- as you can have non-binary friends who also happen to be riding solo this Valentine’s Day season and want to participate, which all are welcome to!
Dress up or dress down, go to a fancy restaurant or order take out and spend time with some of your favorite people the day before Valentine’s Day. Or if you don’t have any big plans, send a surprise last minute Galentine’s Day gift to your friends as a way to show them you’re thinking of them and just how awesome you think they are. Heck, you can even treat yourself to a last minute Galentine’s Day gift with GiftYa!
