Gather the Girls for an Epic Galentine's Day 2023 Celebration

Ok, so there's no doubt that everyone feels different when it comes to the topic of Valentine's Day. Some love the opportunity to spoil their significant other. Some despise it. And others couldn't care less. 

Personally, I think it's an overly commercialized holiday that paints a limiting picture of love and what it means. Because the truth is... love manifests itself in many forms and relationships in our lives. 

Which is why I'd much rather celebrate Galentine's Day! A celebration of the deep & nurturing friendships we've cultivated with our best gal pals 👯‍♀️💞 Honestly, don't know what I'd do without my girls. They've supported me unconditionally on my journey through the ups and downs. And we love spoiling each other every chance we get. 

I want to encourage you to honor & celebrate the meaningful relationships you've built with your best gal pals in life, which is in complete alignment with the intentions I've set for 2023. In case you missed it, check out my previous blog on setting new year intentions! 

So, let's get into it! The deeper meaning behind Galentine's Day, ways you can celebrate this year, and some Jester Swink gift ideas for spoiling your best gal pal.

Celebrating Healthy Friendships for Galentine's Day 

Galentine's Day is coming up right around the corner, as it is usually celebrated on February 13th. Just a day before Valentine's. It's the perfect day to get the girls together and shower each other with lots of love. 

An authentic, healthy friendship is filled with communication, mutual respect, trust, and giving/receiving support. A friendship should act as a beautiful mirror to reflect your beauty as well as areas for growth. One that helps you remember that you are not alone. 

And if you feel like your closest relationships are lacking any of these qualities... then, I highly recommend you open up a safe space to speak with one another about how you can cultivate a deeper friendship. Galentine's Day may be the perfect opportunity! 😉

There's a saying I love that goes like this. . . “make new friends and keep the old; one is silver and the other gold.” It's a lovely reminder of how fulfilling it is to make new connections that spark joy in your heart and help expand your perspective. While on the other hand, remember to cultivate those long-lasting friendships that have been there with you on the mountain's high and in the valley's low. Both are equally valuable and important.

Sharing this makes me think about my beloved bestie, Drea "Bear," whom I've been friends with since 1990! Something I value about our relationship is that we get each other. We celebrate the wins and support the loss. And, of course, we LOVE spoiling each other with small unique gifts. It's our way of saying..." remember your worth, and remember how much you are loved." I mean, look how stinken cute she is!💞

Now, if you've been thinking about a few specific gal pals... then keep reading to gather up some ideas about how you can spoil each other this Galentine's Day 🥳

6 Ways to Celebrate Galentine's Day

Put your phone on airplane mode and set up that out-of-office email. Because your Galentine's Day celebration should be dedicated to you, your gal pals, and the meaningful connection you share. 

Here are some ways you can celebrate Galentine's Day in style: 

  1. Host a Galentine's Day brunch or dinner: Gather your friends and treat yourselves to a special, consciously-cooked meal. You could make it a potluck and have everyone bring their fave dish to share, or you could go out to your fave restaurant or cafe. For more ideas, check out Martha Stewart's Galentine's Day potluck tips here.
  2. Go to a movie or watch a favorite show/movie at home: Invite your friends for a movie marathon, binge-watch your favorite show on Netflix, or go out to see the newest release in theaters. Schitts Creek, anyone?? Definitely, a must if you have yet to see it!
  3. Plan a spa day: There is nothing better than pampering each other with self-care! Schedule a relaxing spa session at your local salon - or meet somewhere in between. For my spa day in Santa Cruz I'll be going to: Well Within! Oh, and for those who want to spoil yourselves for a spa day in San Francisco, there's always Kabuki Springs!
  4. Have a craft or DIY Party: If you and your gal pal are the artsy types. Do some inspiration research on Pinterest and/or Etsy to gather supplies and spend the day creating something special together. Make it an intentional space for discussing & honoring the joys of your friendship. And hey! Why not make a DIY wall hanging?!? Check out my DIY wall hanging blog here 🙃
  5. Go on a fun adventure: Plan a fun outing or adventure, like hiking or a day at the beach, maybe a fancy dinner cruise, or even a quick day trip to the next town over or the nearest national park. Wine tasting is one of my favs! 
  6. Host a wine or cocktail tasting party: Invite your friends for a wine or cocktail tasting party. Try out some new flavors from your local winery, and share giggles while enjoying a beautiful sunset. 🥂

Whatever you choose to do, the most important thing is to spend quality time with your friends doing something that you both love! It's a special opportunity to make new memories, deepen your relationship, and honor the special bond you share.
