Valentine’s Day is fun… but celebrating and cherishing our girlfriends can be even more delightful! Today I’m sharing some perfect Galentine’s Day gifts for your bestie and an easy DIY basket to put them in.
My Galentine’s Day gifts are sponsored by iHerb, but all opinions are my own. As always I only write about companies I enjoy and feel like you will too! Thanks for supporting posts like this that allow me to keep publishing Running in a Skirt.
How was your weekend? Mine was good, although a bit busy. I ended up with planned events Friday, Saturday and Sunday… so there was a lot of running around. I got to see a lot of people I haven’t seen in awhile, so that is always nice though. I hope your weekend was just as good.
Last week, I met my dear friend Marilyn for another walk at Biltmore. If you’ve been a long time reader of the blog you might remember how much the two of us like to get together to walk and hike during the week. If the weather is too cold, we’ll meet for brunch at one of our favorite local restaurants. She is my kindred spirit and I can’t even begin to tell you how much I cherish our friendship. Working from home can get lonely and it’s so nice to meet up with her when I can.
I’m bringing up Marilyn because I recently learned about a new twist on Valentine’s Day called Galentine’s Day. It’s all about showing a little love for an important woman in your life on Valentine’s Day in addition to your sweetie. Valentine’s Day is nice, but I’ve never been a huge fan. Galentine’s Day is something I can wholeheartedly get on board with!
As soon as I learned about the holiday, I knew what I wanted to do! I wanted to surprise Marilyn with a Galentine’s Day gift. She is always doing such wonderful things for me, and I was so excited about the excuse to spoil her back.
I’ve been short on time lately (ok… always… ) and I did all my shopping for Galentine’s Day gifts on iHerb. iHerb is a wonderful website packed full of healthy and natural products. They feature supplements, herbs, bath and beauty finds, grocery products and sports related buys like protein powders and bars. They even have goods for babies and pets! I love that iHerb focuses on stocking healthy, natural products at wonderful prices.
You might have picked up a theme here, but I was going for a stress relief and sleep basket! Marilyn’s sweet baby Evelyn is celebrating her first birthday this week and needless to say my dear friend hasn’t been getting much sleep this past year.
Btw can you believe she’s almost a year old? Remember her winter themed baby sprinkle?!
It was SOOOO simple to get together all the items for my Galentine’s Day gifts with iHerb. I even searched for ideas right on the site! I often struggle with presents and honestly coming up with gift ideas with this site made the process a breeze.
