February is known for having one of the most significant holidays in our social calendar: Valentine’s Day. That’s right, every February 14th - and often even weeks and months before - our supermarkets, social media feeds, and stores are filled with gifts and flowers designed to celebrate romantic love. From bouquets of roses to heart-shaped chocolates, Valentine’s Day is a global phenomenon that is virtually unrivaled as the best holiday to celebrate love, devotion, and partnership.
That is, until Galentine’s Day came on the scene. That’s right, there’s a new holiday that celebrates love in all its myriad forms in town and it’s beginning to take the world by storm! Galentine’s Day is special because it honors female friendship and gives every woman - regardless of her relationship status - the chance to celebrate the friends in her life and feel celebrated herself.
Of course, despite its name, Galentine’s Day can be celebrated by anyone! After all, who needs an excuse to send a friend some flowers to show you care? With that in mind, and to get you ready for this year’s Galentine’s Day, here’s everything you need to know about this holiday, from where to find the best Galentine’s flowers to our tips for the best Galentine’s Day gift basket.
What is Galentine’s Day?
If you haven’t heard of Galentine’s Day gifts before, let’s take a moment to talk about this holiday. Created by the fictional character of Leslie Knope in the famous U.S. TV show Parks and Recreation, Galentine’s Day is all about “ladies celebrating ladies.” In the show, Leslie gathers all her closest female friends for a sentimental brunch in which she gives out gifts. The idea of celebrating friendship - particularly female friendship - took hold all over the world and now this unofficial holiday is a popular occasion for sending flowers and gifts to your nearest and dearest.
When is Galentine’s Day?
Galentine’s Day gifts are exchanged on February 13th, the eve of Valentine’s Day. The holiday is seen as an alternative to its romantic neighbor, championing platonic relationships over romantic ones.
What gifts can you give on Galentine’s Day?
As this is a new - and mostly made up! - holiday, you can give any gifts you want! Whether it’s a bouquet of flowers, or some Galentine’s gift boxes filled with your friends’ favorite things, the sky’s the limit when it comes to giving presents on this holiday.
When should you order your Galentine’s Day gift delivery?
As this holiday falls right before Valentine’s Day, it’s a good idea to order your flowers or Galentine’s day gift delivery in advance to ensure it can be prepared and delivered on time. However, if you choose to send flowers, you can get lucky and find some flower companies who offer same day delivery on some of their Galentine’s Day flower bouquets.
The best flowers to send on Galentine’s Day
With that in mind, what flowers should you be sending to your gal pals on February 13th? Here are some of our favorite blooms that make stunning additions to friendship bouquets.
- Pink Roses
We’ve chosen these flowers as many of them have strong connotations of affection, admiration, loyalty, love, and friendship. Pink flowers are generally a good choice when it comes to sending friendship bouquets, as are yellow-colored blooms, whose cheerfulness signifies the joy of good pals.
To make it easier to find the right flowers to send on this holiday, there are myriad online delivery websites with specially designed arrangements to choose from. Here’s our top three flower companies for the perfect Galentine’s Day flower delivery.
FromYouFlowers offers same day delivery on an array of beautiful flower arrangements that commemorate this holiday with the very best friendship flowers. Affordably priced, these flowers are perfect for the last-minute gift buyers who still want to show a pal how much they mean to them!
For truly indulgent flowers, it has to be the experts at ProFlowers. As the name suggests, this company offers the best in professional flower arranging with their original ‘The Galentine’s Bouquet’ mixing purple and white mini calla lilies, hot pink veronica stems, and purple roses for a flower arrangement as wildly wonderful as your friends!
For bouquets in which roses reign supreme, it has to be the flower arrangements at Teleflora. Roses are such a wonderful expression of so many kinds of love that they are the perfect gift for a special friendship and thus the perfect Galentine’s flower delivery. We think red roses should be for friends as well as partners and you will certainly find lots of these flowers in Teleflora’s Valentine’s and Galentine’s Day collections.
For the ladies who don’t like flowers
If your friend isn’t a flower lover, don’t worry! There are lots of other ways to show you care.When it comes to Galentine’s delivery gifts that aren’t flower arrangements, we don’t think you can go wrong with a thoughtful gift basket.
FTD has the perfect hamper to celebrate this holiday in style with its ‘Girls Night in Gift Set’. Featuring chocolate hearts, champagne gummies, and more luxurious treats, this gift is the perfect non-flower gift to share with your best pal. Also, who says flowers are the only things that can come in a bouquet? FTD has a donut bouquet that is the perfect addition to a night in with your bestie.
While we don’t think you need a reason to send a friend flowers or a gift basket, it’s nice to have a day that gives you full permission to celebrate the ladies in your life. It doesn’t matter whether you say it with flowers, a cardalloon, or a simple hug, the important thing is that you say it. ‘It’ being, of course, that you love them!
