How to give meaningful gifts to your girls on Galentine's Day without breaking the bank.
So Galentine’s Day is almost here! Which means you might be scrambling for some meaningful gift ideas for your gals! I wanted to share with you some foolproof gifts that I give my besties on Galentine’s Day!
My hubby gets my attention all year long and I make sure to do something special on Valentine’s Day just for him, but this year, I wanted to do a gift guide for my girls! My best friends are like family. They have stood by me through my hardest and most joyous times - I find that I do not say thank you or I love you enough to them! So this list of goodies is dedicated just to my girls! My love language is Gifts. I am always on the search for wants to give meaningful gifts without breaking my bank account. Each of the gifts below comes with a physical item and a way to personalize it just for your friend.
A Fun Throwback to Growing up together - The Scrunchie - Who doesn’t love a good 90’s Throwback. Okay, I am going to be honest, I wasn’t on board when scrunchies started making a comeback, but then my sister got a few and I needed a hair tie one day. So I borrowed her scrunchie and I was obsessed. My hair didn’t pull and my hair wasn’t creased afterwards! You guys! It was so nice! So I have become obsessed with scrunchies and ordered 3 yesterday! I get my scrunchies from Little Ella Rae. This throwback can be paired with an old picture of you and your bestie with a note about how much her friendship has meant to you over the years.
All Natural Self Care products for an at home Spa Day - Primally Pure has changed my life! I was introduced to them by a friend when I was pregnant with Addie. After losing our first baby, I wanted to give my body the best chance at growing my tiny human, so I cut out products that were full of chemicals I couldn’t pronounce. Not all natural products are created equally. Primally Pure is a HUGE step above anything else I have tried and I adore their spa items. I love introducing friends to Primally Pure, because it has changed my life and I have watched it change my friends lives. Some of the items I like to give are their deodorant, their lip balm and their spa kit! Their bath soaks soothe achy muscles and you get one free during the month of February! Every women deserves some pamper time! One way to make this special is remind your friend of all of her amazing accomplishments. She has worked so hard at caring for her family, being a good friend, loving others well, that she deserves some time for relaxation and self love!
A book that encourages her to live out her dreams and who she is! It is no secret that I am a HUGE Rachel Hollis fan. H. U. G. E. It might be because not only does she encourage women to be entrepreneurs and dreamers, but she actually tells you how she does it! She empowers women with steps on how to plan and chase their dreams. If you have a friend who wants to start her own business, wants to create and sell something or has a dream that seems so big but you know that she can do it - what a more impactful gift than saying you believe in her dreams!!! Seriously though - Amazon Prime it! Either Rachel Hollis’s book Girl, Wash Your Face or Pre-Order her book Girl, Stop Apologizing and on the note you get when you send a gift, write “I Believe in You! I Believe in Your Dream!” As a dreamer and entrepreneur, you have NO IDEA how much it means to hear that those closest to you believe in you.
Get matching sunglasses! This is another Amazon Prime winner! I love a good pair of sunglasses. They can make me feel unstoppable. I also love matching my friends. I think it brings a sense of security and unity. When I wear my sunglasses that match my sisters, I think of her. I am reminded of how close we are and how she has my back no matter what. That makes me feel strong, confident, like I can take on the world! It also helps that the glasses look amazing on! Get something that is matching for the two of you. Let her know that it is your special thing and that when you wear your pair, you will think of her - maybe even send her some fun selfies in your pair! It will make her feel thought of and appreciated. grinderPUNCH is a California brand that makes durable, fashion-forward sunglasses. They have a twinning pack: 2 pairs for under $20.
Getting a meaningful gift doesn’t have to be stressful or expensive. You can find ways to give your bestie something she will love and make it special. When buying gifts, think about ways you can add a personal touch - like a handwritten note, or a memory of the two of you. Remind her of how much she means to you and the ways she has spoken into your life.
We are not meant to live life alone. Grab your girlfriends and love on them this Galentine’s Day!
