I’m all for female empowerment and this day does just that!
Galentine’s Day is celebrated on 13th February (the day before the all so, and not really important Valentine’s day) and it’s all about “ladies celebrating ladies.”
When did it begin I hear you ask?
Well, interestingly it started in a sitcom!
In the US sitcom Parks and Recreation, the main character Leslie Knope first invented Galentine’s day almost a decade ago! Held the day before Valentine’s, it was seen as a chance for the female characters in the sitcom to get together, socialise, and celebrate “ovaries before brovaries.”
I’m all about empowering women, and nothing makes me happier than celebrating my gal pals, so I’m totally on board for Galentine’s Day!
If you are too, then I have the perfect present – just for you!
If you want to celebrate your closest gals, and show them how grateful you are to have them in your life, then have a look at these beauties below…

2. Personalised ‘Things We Love About’ Our Friend Print

I believe one of the greatest gifts you can get anyone in life is a present just like this!
Some people find it very hard to know what their personal qualities and talents are, so heighten their confidence and perhaps redden their cheeks with this thoughtful gift.
Plus, we are all guilty of not appreciating the little things in life, or telling close ones how grateful we are to have them in our lives. So show your gratitude for your best gal with this cute personalised present.
3. F.R.I.E.N.D.S pilot t-shirt
£12.99 – NEW LOOK
F.R.I.E.N.D.S is a series that is very relevant between me and my girls – we just LOVE it! As we find that every situation in life somehow relates back to the best-selling US sitcom.
Plus we all remember the very first pilot episode that had our heart’s captured and invested in the show from here onward.
Relive this episode over and over again with this t-shirt – it’s a must-have item this Galentine’s Day!
4. Book: What would the Spice Girls do?
£8.99 – ASOS
Nothing says female empowerment quite like the 90s girl band, Spice Girls! As the group empowers all types of females: sporty, posh, scary, ginger and baby.
The beloved group are so great that they’re coming back this year on tour (minus Posh -boo!) – hope you’ve got your tickets!
So give your greatest gal this book and ask yourselves…
What would the Spice Girls do?
5. BFF MUGS

They say tea solves everything, and nothing solves a problem more than a cup of tea with friends.
Even if your pal prefers coffee or even a naughty hot chocolate, then these mugs are the perfect pair for you to use when catching up and having a really girly gossip.
The only thing that’s missing is a nice slice of homemade cake, mmmmm…
