Friendships deserve a day of recognition, too! Spend Galentine’s Day with your best girlfriends on February 13, the day before Valentine’s Day. Now is the time to make plans with your ladies to do something special together.
Every year, my girlfriends and I bake up a storm and eat cheese and drink wine. However, this year I wanted to take it one step further to make it even more special. I took a trip to my local Dollar Tree (where I always get all of my inspiration) and decided to get my gal pals a card this year as well that I felt spoke to each of them.
Thankfully, Dollar Tree has a great selection of 2 for $1 Heartline, a Hallmark Company, and $1 Expressions from Hallmark greeting cards that are perfect for Galentine’s Day. I was able to find a few different ones to suit each of my girlfriends. I also decided to write a special and sentimental note inside of each one as well as a reason why I love them. I can’t wait to see their faces when they open them!
So, head to your local Dollar Tree now to pick out the perfect cards for your loved ones!
Eat Sweet Treats
Dollar Tree stores will be stocked with candy and chocolate, so it’s the perfect time for baking desserts! Gather up sweet ingredients and invite your even sweeter friends over to decorate cookies, bake brownies, or frost a Galentine’s Day cake. Get fancy by serving cupcakes in martini glasses with this fun Cupcaketini Recipe. Put on your favorite show or movie and enjoy fresh-from-the-oven treats.
Host a Craft Night
Do you and your friends love to craft? Galentine’s Day is a great reason to get together for a craft or activity night. Shop $1 supplies from Dollar Tree and create Pint Jar Floral Bouquets or Wintry Deco Mesh Wreaths. Sign up for a paint night at a local gallery or create your own paint night at home. Check out Dollar Tree on Pinterest for more crafty inspiration.
Give Them Gifts
You give your significant other a Valentine’s Day gift, so why not give your girlfriends gifts, too? Create something fun, thoughtful, and budget-friendly, such as this Manicure Gift Set, for each of your friends. Better yet, spend Galentine’s Day enjoying a DIY manicure and pedicure together! You can even put together your very own gift baskets to give to your girlfriends on a budget.
Conquer Your Resolutions
If your friends are working hard toward their New Year’s Resolutions, you can spend Galentine’s Day offering support and encouragement. Make a gym date, take a yoga class, or go out to a healthy lunch or dinner together. It doesn’t matter what you do on February 13, just be sure to spend some quality time with your best friends doing something you all enjoy!
