We are just going to give it to your straight: we don’t care much about Valentine’s Day around here, but fully and wholeheartedly celebrate Galentine’s Day. Because nothing is more important than celebrating and showing appreciation for our girlfriends. And just like Leslie Knope on Parks & Rec says, Galentine’s Day is the best day of the year.
“Oh, it’s only the best day of the year! Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas. — Leslie Knope
So, if you have an Anne to your Leslie in your lives, a Rachel to your Monica, the Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte to your Carie, then celebrate February 13 with them. These Galentine’s Day gifts will make the day that much more fun, but also in true Leslie fashion, don’t forget to eat waffles, throw a party and volunteer!
