Galentines Day has always been something I have wanted to celebrate. I have had a Valentine for the past 10 years and wouldn’t change it at all but I also love to celebrate my gal pals. The problem with that is my best friends live hours away from me. But when I finally had the chance to plan special day with my Galentine I was so excited and headed to LOFT to pick up some of my favorite pieces and of course something to gift to her! I don’t think Galentine’s Day gifts need to be something big. Just something to show how much you appreciate your best gal pal and her never ending willingness to listen to you, shop with you, and be there when you need her the most! Keep reading to see what we gifted each other and how we celebrated!
Our day started off bright and early. Like I mentioned above Lindsey and I currently live over an hour away from each other. When we don’t have as much time and can’t plan a full weekend together we usually try to meet up somewhere half way. This time we met in Providence, RI which is full of beautiful historic buildings and great food. Luckily, the weather was gorgeous so we got to walk around a little bit and catch up before grabbing lunch.
Since we were celebrating Galentine’s Day we both picked up something for each other. Both of us love LOFT and decided we would do a little gift exchange! As I mentioned above, you do not need to go all out for Galentine’s Day. Just a little something to show your appreciation is fine! Sometimes we will even just have a bottle of wine to share instead of gifts. Lindsey loves jewelry so I picked out this pretty pair of earrings to gift to her. She knows how much I love faux fur and all things glam so she grabbed me this scarf!
While we were out heading to lunch we had TONS to catch up on! I actually hadn’t seen Lindsey in person since Cameron’s baptism in October so even though we keep in touch almost every day it is always so nice to get together to catch up. Since the day was beautiful we spent some extra time looking at all of the pretty scenery in Providence, RI.
We both will have our own Valentines Day Dates with our significant others, and I have been looking for the perfect outfit for my date! I am loving everything from LOFT’s Valentines Day Shop. There are pieces for your date, pieces to wear to work, or pieces just in case you love, LOVE a little extra! The pretty foil and embroidered details are just too fun! Plus my gorgeous pink chenille sweater is also from the collection! What’s not to LOVE about that!
In case you are still looking for ways to celebrate Galentine’s Day with your favorite gal pal here are a few ideas!
- If she is long distance – Send her a little care package of all of her favorite things. Include some chocolate, lotion, lipstick, and a card to tell her how much you love her!
- If she is close to you – Take her out for some drinks! What girl doesn’t love sitting and chatting with her friend over a glass of wine! Of course you can do this anytime so make it special by bringing her a handmade card!
- Host a slumber party! – This one would be super fun to get your group of gals together! Rent a movie and have everyone bring an appetizer or desert!
However you decide to celebrate your gal pal it will be tons of fun! Comment below on your favorite way to celebrate Galentines Day!
