THE GIFT OF GIVING
Prezzies aren't and essential but we sure love em! Why not chip in on an experience instead? whether you all put money into the kitty for an amazing take-away or have a DIY at home pamper sesh using up those Green Tea bags no one drinks. If you are going to spend money on each other be sure to communicate it well so no-on feels in a pinch or left out. Want to really mark the day? Why not toast each other in this super cute Galentine's mug from Megan Padovano Designs? I'll drink to that!
GET ALL SENTIMENTAL
Let's get all soppy over some old pictures and stories. Why not get real personal and write a card? A few I've pictured in this post are made with the same love and care as you have for your chum. These two card are from Kristin's Esty shop, Grace and Serendipity and Olivia's Etsy shop, Atiliay. Save the hassle of handmade cards to these pros!
SET THE SCENE
Whether it's a night out on the town or Netflix and Chill BFF Edition fill your hope with love! That's right, why not go all out with the decorations? Besides with decor as cute as this gold foil print from Grace and Serendipity you can keep it on display all year round. Who wouldn't want be surrounded with love 24/7? Opt for some adorable heart garlands or basically anything pink and fluffy.
FOOD FOR FUN
I love food and I will never pass up an opportunity to enjoy some comical themed food. It's time to dash out and get some red food colouring, heart-shape cookie cutters and basically any red, pink or heart-shaped food you can find. Pinterest is great for finding some amazing yet simple recipes. But when it comes to a girls night, sustenance should come soley from Pizza, Popcorn, Chocolate and Ice Cream. A huge Pizza Addict myself, I'll be giving my (very lucky) BoyF a bouquet of Pizza Roses.
