Thanks to Valentine’s Day, romantic relationships tend to get all the love in February. And don’t get it twisted, the partner who has had your back through thick and thin deserves homemade Valentine’s Day breakfast, awesome gifts and maybe even a special night out if that’s your thing. But for those of us who don’t have a special someone, or want to celebrate their pals too, don’t forget about Galentine’s Day. This illustrious holiday, first created by Amy Poehler’s character on Parks and Recreation, lands on February 13. Traditionally celebrated with breakfast foods, mimosas and heartfelt professions of love for you besties, Galentine’s Day is about celebrating that unbreakable bond you share with your ride-or-die friends. They’re there for you when you need a shoulder to cry on, a marathon shopping sesh, someone to bounce outfit ideas off of or all of the above.
And despite the name, Galentine’s Day isn’t just for ladies. Regardless of your gender identity, everyone can celebrate the love between friends with Galentine’s Day gifts, cards and lots of warm fuzzy feels. For those who want to share some sweet sentiments, we rounded up a mix of cute, sweet and hilarious Galentine’s Day cards that will help you put into words just how much your friends mean to you!
