Celebrate Galentine’s Day This Year With Plenty of Self Care

Each year, on February 13th, we celebrate Galentine’s Day! You read that right—Galentine’s with a G, not Valentine’s with a V. Galentine’s Day is a special day dedicated to celebrating your closest female friends. Your gal pal’s have been with you through it all, and let’s face it, they’re not going anywhere! Why let romantic partners get all the hubbub during February? Celebrating your female friends is integral to your mental health and the strength of your friendships. Giving yourself and your girlfriends some products and experiences that will aid in their self care journey is a great idea for Galentine’s Day. This is especially important if you or the other gals in your friend group are single, and don’t care much for Valentine’s Day. Getting gifts that help set the tone for self care will help all your gal pals remember what strong, independent, and intelligent women they are all by themselves—no partner needed. If you want to do it right this Galentine’s Day, here are some self care products and experiences that you can gift to them or to yourself!


Ylang Ylang & Rose Soy Candle

If you want a sweet-smelling gift for yourself or for a special gal in your life on Galentine’s Day, the Ylang Ylang & Rose Soy Candle from NaturalAnnie Essentials is a great idea. Ylang Ylang & Rose is a combination of unique herbaceous tones, soft floral scents, and a bit of fruitiness. It’s a girly, romantic, distinctly “pink” smelling candle that is perfect for any gal pal to whom you want to show love and gratitude. 


Cherry Blossom & Berries Candle

Another great candle gift option is the NaturalAnnie Essentials Cherry Blossom & Berries Soy Candle. This candle just exudes love and romance with its fruity and floral scent profile. Even platonic gal pal friendships need a bit of romancing every once in a while! Cherry blossoms are also such springy florals that the Cherry Blossom & Berries candle is on the nose for mid-February—it will get you or your gal pal ready to usher in the springtime season!


Sip and Pour Candle Making Experience

If you really want to treat your girls right so you can have a Galentine’s Day experience that people in relationships only wish they could have, you can’t go wrong with a NaturalAnnie Essentials’ Sip and Pour Candle Making Experience. These intimate, limited space events in the NaturalAnnie Studio are the perfect place for gal pals to bond over a new experience: making their own hand-poured candles! Having a new experience and learning something new together is one of the best things you can do to strengthen your relationship with someone. Plus, one of the best things about the Sip And Pour events is that you get to drink wine while you make your candles. This cozy, romantic, boozy candle making session is going to be just the thing to make your Galentine’s Day one to remember.
