Haute Houston boutiques gear up for Galentine's Day with great gifts for the besties
IT'S ABOUT BESTIES, Y'ALL
Valentine's day is around the corner, but this year, forget the fancy restaurants, red roses, and heels. Instead, gather a gang of fun and powerful women, and throw on a comfy set to celebrate Galentine's Day on February 13.
What is Galentine's Day? It is a fictional holiday created by Leslie Knope of Parks and Recreation in 2010. In the Galentine's Day episode, Leslie gathered a group of her besties for a waffle brunch. "Every February 13, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast style," she explains. "Ladies celebrating ladies."
Since then, Galentine's Day has become a great excuse to throw a party and shower the girl gang with gifts and affection. We've crafted a list of unique items available locally that are worthy of any Galentine's Day celebration.
