The season of love doesn’t have to be all about romantic relationships – it can include friendships as well. While Galentine’s Day is not as popular as Valentine’s Day, Cupid can still shoot his arrow at some gal pals. Read along to find out how to ask someone to be your galentine, what to get your galentine and what to do on Feb. 13.
Asking someone like a sister, roommate or friend to be your galentine should be the start. Something as simple as baking a cake with the word “Galentine?” frosted on will do the trick. If you would like to keep it in the spirit of food, Taco Bell sauce packets have witty sayings on them to easily lead into asking someone to be your galentine.
Another low-cost way of asking someone to be your galentine can be making a homemade card or poster that is made with love. Using lots of pinks and reds can really set the mood for this love-centered holiday.
Getting your galentine a present does not have to break the bank. Some inexpensive gift ideas can be cookies to bake, mocktails to make or board games to play. Each of these gift ideas can be done with items found around the house. These are also a great way to spend your Galentine’s Day with your friend(s).
The most important part of Galentine’s Day should be the quality time you and your friend(s) spend together. Watching a movie, making dinner together or gossiping can be fun ways to stay in and enjoy each other’s company.
If going out is more your style, grabbing drinks, ice cream or shopping can be a fun way to be together. Shared experiences can be the greatest gift of all.
While it is fun to have a valentine, it can be just as (if not more) fun to have a galentine to spend this lovey holiday with. Love can mean many things, and loving your galentine(s) can be just as important as a valentine. Thankfully, Cupid has enough arrows (and advice) to make it through Galentine’s Day, and Valentine’s Day!
