Valentine’s Day is notorious for being the one calendar day of the year to shower your special someone with gifts that show how much you love and appreciate them. And while traditional celebrations of years past are perfectly fine and well, also on our list of meaningful days to look forward to in February is one you may be less familiar with.
Popularized by the fictional Leslie Knope from the television series Parks and Recreation, Galentine’s Day is coming up on February 13–the purpose of which is exactly what its name suggests. It’s a special day solely meant to celebrate the special women we know, love, and who bring a unique richness to our lives.
When you really think about it, the women in your closest circle have been by your side through thick and thin—and the rollercoaster has been real over the last few years. From missing out on brunch dates due to lockdowns to squeezing in time to check-in while you’ve been working from home and helping your kids in virtual school—maintaining strong friendships with the women in your inner circle has presented a unique set of challenges. Yet, despite all of the ups and downs, those relationships are as strong as ever.
If successfully navigating the chaos of the world alongside your closest friends is not a cause for some serious celebration, we’re not sure what is. So, this year, why not show your GALentines some extra love by showering them with gifts that are as fabulous as they are? Let’s keep Leslie Knope’s Galentine’s Day tradition alive on this side of the television screen. We’ve got the perfect list to get you started.
Galentine’s Day Gifts She’ll Love
Let’s jump in and talk about something that we’re sure ranks high on the wishlist of women everywhere this year: plenty of deep, undisrupted sleep. Is there anything better than experiencing a perfect night’s sleep after a challenging day? We don’t think so.
Still, getting quality rest is often the first thing that gets crossed off of our to-do lists to make room for the thousands of responsibilities we have to take care of each day. To help turn things around for your best girlfriends this year, consider sending them something specially designed to help them stop sacrificing sleep and start getting the rest they need to wake up refreshed and ready to take on whatever life throws their way. We’ve got just the thing.
Luxury Silk Pillowcases
Perfect for Galentine’s Day, 100% Mulberry silk pillowcases make elegant gifts to give your friends some well-deserved R&R. Luxuriously sleek, they’ll appreciate that our 22 momme, top A6 rated silk is extra gentle on delicate skin while helping their hair maintain vital hydration throughout the night.
Available in four beautiful colors, our Pure Silk Pillowcase features thoughtful designer touches, like a seamless zipper closure to keep your galentine’s pillow secure and matching piped seams for a chic aesthetic. As a bonus, each pillowcase comes with a mesh bag to make laundering a smooth and simple process.
Zensory™ Weighted Blankets
Another great sleep-friendly comfort item to consider for Galentine's Day is the gift of warm, weighted wellness. Perfect for snuggling up beneath for extra relaxing warmth during the fall and winter months and for lulling you to sleep during the spring and summer months, Zensory™ weighted blankets make the coziest gift to send everyone on your list.
Purecare weighted blankets are available in two different calming weight options for adults (15lbs and 20lbs) with three 100% machine washable blanket covers to choose from. No matter which blanket cover you choose, your friends will love how soft and cuddly their blanket and cover combo is without having to worry about any complicated wash and care instructions.
Aromatherapy for Relaxation
There’s something so luxurious about aromatherapy. Help your loved ones sneak in some extra self-care this year with an aromatherapy gift that's earned a coveted Women’s Choice Award:
● Essential Oil Diffuser by Ellia Homedics. Great for taking any aromatherapy practice further, the WCA recommends Ellia’s Essential Oil Diffuser to infuse your home living spaces with your favorite scents to relax, improve your mood, and more.
