Valentine's Day can mean and look like so many different things to everyone. Maybe it’s time to get all loved up with your special someone. Or maybe it’s time to love yourself a little bit extra. How about a night celebrating all your gal pals? Either way, this love month is not necessarily about that one special someone. No matter if you’re embracing and celebrating Valentine’s Day or avoiding it, we have a special day for you you’re sure to love.
Que: Galentine’s Day.
So, whether you’re looking to host a small gathering for your gals or throw a massive party, it’s a time that should be full of laughs and love! To help you through the ultimate Galentine's, we have put together a few of our must haves for you and your girls to celebrate Galentine’s Day.
Do we need to say more? Grab a bottle, or a few. Nothing brings a group of gals together quite like a few glasses of great wine! Make sure you also have some cute wine glasses on hand to complete your set up! Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday this year in Australia, did someone say a boozy brunch or Sunday sesh?!
Oh yes. Big yes. Need an excuse to treat yourself to those comfy, cozy looking slippers or the cutest puppy soft toy comforter? Look no further. Nothing bonds a tribe better than a pair of fluffy slippers. If you want to take it that little step further, grab some matching pairs and have them ready on arrival for your guests! A gift that keeps on giving, each time you slip these babies on you’ll remember a night full of laughs and loves with your best gals!
The fluffier, the brighter, the pinker, the better.
Snacks. A must for any day, gathering or occasion! Make sure you have a generous amount of snack options for your guess. A little something something to choose from, a little something for everyone. Some of our favourite savoury snacks include vege crisps, popcorn, crackers, cheese and dips! For the sweet tooth we’re thinking chocolate (a lot of it), berries, brownies, cookies and cake.
Even better, hold a bake off! If you need any recipe inspo we’ve got a whole heap for you! You can find a tonne of tasty, peanut butter packed treats to fill your soul and tummy in our recipe section. We’ll be whipping up a batch of our almond cacao butter kiss cookies and peanut butter cookies that’s for sure!
Yes, before you ask - this is a must. By having a theme that everyone can get in on, this will make it way more exciting! This little detail will make all the difference. Really, who doesn’t love a pajama party? Cozy up with a pile of blankets and movies and you’ll be good to go.
The only thing that’s really proven to cure all the feels. Comfort food comes in many forms. We do not discriminate. We accept all comfort foods in all their glory! The more carbs, the better, we say! We’re talking rich and creamy soups to warm the soul, big bowls of pasta, comforting, aromatic curries and spoonfuls of peanut butter from the jar. Yes, you heard us.
The heart, and belly knows what it wants so do yourself and your girls a favour. Treat yo’ self!
That’s all of our must haves for your ultimate Galentine’s day with your best girls. Whatever you choose to do, we hope that it is filled with lots of laughs, love, chocolate and preferably wine and fluffy slippers too!
