Looking to Treat Your BBBF? Galentine’s Day Guide!

The ultimate guide to Galentine’s day – what to do, what to buy and how to treat your BBBF (Big-boobed best friend!) to show them some love this year!

What is Galentine’s Day?

You may be familiar with the term Galentine’s day if you’re a fan of the hit US Comedy Parks and Recreation! The iconic Amy Poehler, who plays Leslie Knope, dedicates a day to shower her best friends with gifts and love. Since then, the day has come into its own with people everywhere celebrating their female friendships and galmances all over the world!

When is Galentine’s Day?

While February 14th is synonymous with roses, teddy bears and romantic love, February 13th is the dedicated Galentine’s day (yay!). The bond you have with your BBBFs is something to celebrate, so whether you’re loved up this year or flying solo, there’s a day for everyone to celebrate love – everybody say love (any RuPaul fans in the room?!).
