As we all know, Valentine’s Day is coming up and the world is splattered with shades of pink and red in preparation of the day that is all about love. My absolute favorite thing about Valentine’s Day though, is the fact that because of Leslie Knope from Parks and Recreation, Galentine’s Day now exists. Galentine’s Day is held on February 13th of each year and it is ALL about “ladies celebrating ladies.”
Here at Candelles, we’re all for women empowerment and uplifting one another, so we get very excited for any opportunity to spoil our gal pals that we love and cherish most. This is a day for encouragement, love, friendship, celebration and maybe even cards and gifts if you’re into those types of things. (Spoiler alert, we definitely are!) Of course, we always love to shop small and support local businesses when treating our gal pals, and we hope you do too! There’s no better way to kick off celebrating a holiday about love than to put together a little round up of gifts to help you love on the ladies in your life.
Below you will find some of our favorite items from our favorite small shops who also happen to be all about gals celebrating gals and community over competition!
We encourage you to support any and all of these fabulous women-owned businesses while spoiling the best women in your life too. Each image above is clickable and will take you directly to the product listed. Give them a follow on Instagram too -- you won’t regret it!
