People dismiss Valentine’s Day as just another for big corporations to make money, but I’ve always believed it’s a nice excuse to show your other half you love them – just like Galentine’s Day.
I love being able to treat my friends, and although I don’t necessarily need an organised day to do so, it gives us a reason to get together and celebrate our friendship. There’s nothing wrong with that, eh?
When is Galentine’s Day?
Galentine’s Day is celebrated the day before Valentine’s on 13th February.
I’m getting more organised with my gifts in 2022, so I’ve started planning what to buy my mates early this year. There are loads of sales still on, so it’s a great time to get started.
I’m not suggesting you buy every single one of your friends a huge, costly present (unless you want to, in which case go right ahead), but a little something – be it a card, a cute mug or some flowers – will go a long way.
So here are some ideas to inspire you to treat your mates this year. After being separated from them in 2021, it’s time to give them the attention they deserve.
