As a kid, I had a hard time making and keeping friends. Actually, it’s something I still struggle with. I’m not 100% sure why that is, I’m sure there’s actually a whole lot of things working together, but over the course of the last couple of years, interacting with groups like Female Geek Bloggers, Pixelles and even Geek Girl Brunch, I’ve finally started to realize how important strong female friendships are and have started working harder at maintaining and nurturing my relationships with the awesome women in my life.
Which is why this year for Valentine’s Day, I’ve decided to make up a little gift guide celebrating everyone’s favourite holiday honouring lady friends: Galentine’s Day. I’m sure most of you are familiar with this made up holiday, created for the show Parks and Recreation, but just in case you aren’t, Galentine’s Day is celebrated on February 13 as a way to tell all the amazing women in your life how much you love and like them.
In keeping with the theme I’ve chosen handmade items all inspired by Parks and Rec, focusing on things I would like to give to or receive from my best gal pals.
1. Pawnee Goddesses Patch – Ferdinand Works| 2. Be The Leslie Knope Mug – Charm & Gumption | 3. Leslie Knope Inspired Candle (Waffle Scented) – Folklore Fragrance | 4. Best Friend Waffle Necklaces – Scrumptious Doodle | 5. Sisters Before Misters Cross-Stitch – Bananya Stand
I’m extra excited for Galentine’s Day this year because Geek Girl Brunch Montreal is going to be hosting our first Galentine’s brunch, complete with waffles and mimosas!
