Valentine’s Day holds a special place in my heart but it’s not because I’m happily married. To be honest, my husband and I don’t even celebrate. Rather, February 14th is meaningful and special because it’s the day I was adopted and brought to the U.S. from Seoul, South Korea. In my family, V-Day is affectionately known as A-Day (Adoption Day) and we celebrate with tons of love and gratitude.
You may not be adopted, but I hope that you are inspired to let the people you care about know it. Especially your closest girlfriends. Which brings me to Galentine’s Day and honoring and celebrating the love we have for our closest girlfriends.
If you don’t know what I’m referring to I need you to STOP what you’re doing immediately & start watching Parks and Recreation (if you’ve only got time for 1 episode, then go directly to Season 2, Episode 16)
While you certainly don’t need to buy gifts to celebrate your female friendships, Galentine’s Day can be a fun way to show your love and appreciation for your besties.
We’ve rounded up our 10 favorite gifts from our very own card subscription to handcrafted soap to clay earrings. And all these gift ideas are from female owned businesses. Leslie Knope would approve.
