Valentine’s Day. A day symbolising love and affection and celebrated for centuries by couples around the world. However, there’s another celebration hot on its heels… Galentine’s Day.


Falling on February 13th, as the name suggests, Galentine’s Day is a day for women to celebrate their female friendships and best gal pals. First coined in 2010 by US Sitcom ‘Parks and Recreation’. Character Leslie Knope starts a celebration where her lady friends can:

“Leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies.”

But what started as a comedy show joke has exploded onto the market in a big way. In the past few years alone, Eflorist has seen an increase in Galentine’s gifting on February 13th. As ladies recognise that there is more than one kind of love, and celebrate their female friendships.
