While we all know 14 February as Valentine’s Day, do you know the significance of Galentine’s Day? Falling on 13 February, the day is reserved to celebrate female friendships. Originating from the popular TV show Parks and Recreation, the day is all about showing love and affection to the girls who are part of our support system.
Take this upcoming Galentine’s Day as an opportunity to show your girlfriends how much they mean to you! After all, they’ve been there for you through thick and thin – holding your hair while you puke your guts out, stopping you from texting your ex, and overall just having your back. From gifting them friendship jewellery to spending a day at the spa, Here are some of the best ways to express your appreciation for the gal pals in your life!
Gift them an arm candy
Friendship bracelets are accessories that transcend trends, time and distance. From the friendship bands we used to hand make for each other as teenagers, today we’ve grown up and moved on to classy bracelets adorned with genuine crystals and gemstones. TerraaGems creates crystal jewellery with a meaning and purpose that resonates on an individual level, and we can’t think of anything more meaningful than customizing a piece for the BFF(s) in your life.
Spend a day at the spa
There's nothing like having a spa day to help rest your body and mind, and what’s better than sharing that experience with your girlfriends? G-spa is a one-stop spa treatment and retreat perfect for pampering yourselves. Equipped with sauna and steam rooms, hot pools, relaxation lounge and even a buffet spread and WiFi, you can quite literally spend a full day here.
Share a yoga session
Hold each other accountable and show up on the mat together by getting the 50 Share Pack from Yoga Movement, where you and your besties can split the sessions together. The all new flagship studio at Orchard boasts stunning interiors – think tall ceilings, an expansive space, finishings of warm wood and splashes of terrazzo. It also has a patio that overlooks the street as well as a coffee bar for your post-yoga fuel and hangs.
Spill the tea
Got some good news (or hot gossip) to share? Spill the tea over some actual tea, savoury bites and sweet treats at one of our city’s classy tea rooms. With its wide selection of afternoon tea delights, ANTI:DOTE is one of the most highly raved about high tea spots in Singapore. Check out this list to see some other tea rooms people voted for!
Go for a staycation
Revisit those sleepovers you had when you were young at one of Singapore’s many hotels! Spend the night soaking in the tub, giving each other mani-pedis, braiding each other’s hair, watching a movie and having heart-to-heart talks till the sun comes up.
