If you've been in a grocery store recently (or any store, really), you know that Valentine's Day is almost here. But instead of your run-of-the-mill Valentine's Day gifts, here at Studio Marigold & Grey, we're celebrating Galentine's Day instead. It's the perfect chance to show our love and appreciation for all the ladies in our lives and yours. Okay, time for a little 'how-to' just in case you want to show some love to your best girlfriends in the form of a curated gift box. You know, our favorite love language! (psst - you can also browse our ready-to-ship Valentine's Day gift box collection for a gift if you don't have the tie to DIY!)
We love mugs but it can't just be any mug. We searched high and low for the perfect pro-girl-power-yet-still-fun-and-feminine mug phrase and after countless examples of "ovaries before brovaries" and "uteruses before duderesses", we almost gave up. But then it happened. We fell hard for this adorable "You're The She To My Nanigans" Mug. Not a mug fan? Other great options include tumbler cups, travel coffee cups or even wine glasses. By the way, wine tumblers even come in stainless steel these days and we can't get enough.
To pair with your cup of choice, add a beverage. We chose to go with a bag of Ceremony Coffee in their signature black and white packaging. Tea, a great bottle of wine, or especially champagne would work perfectly as well.
Silky pajamas from Plum Pretty Sugar are the next item. We loved the adorable botanical print - perfect for a woman at any age. With tons of patterns and styles to choose from, you can find the perfect set for your bestie.
A Galentine's Day gift wouldn't be complete without a spa item. We chose mint julep bath scrub but any color-coordinated bath product would do as long as it smells amazing and actually does what it says it will do. Perfect for an evening of self-care!
We selected a modern, floral-scented candle to provide a feeling of spring. A great smelling candle is the perfect addition to any spa-themed box.
A Galentine's Day gift wouldn't be complete without a heart-shaped item. We selected a heart-shaped bath bomb with rose petals but truthfully, the possibilities are endless here. It is the perfect addition to the spa-themed gift but anything with a fun Valentine's day flair will do!
Gift Tag & Notecard
Don't forget to add a customized gift tag and notecard to your gift. We dreamed up a classic black and white "XO" set by Just Write Studios. The best part about receiving a gift is knowing the thought behind it, so be sure to include a heartfelt, handwritten note.
For a touch of traditional Valentine's Day, don't forget the blooms! We chose tulips for yet another nod to springtime. Once you tie the ribbon around the box, you can easily slide the stems underneath the ribbon and the florals act as part of the gift in addition to a gorgeous finishing touch!
Voila! You're ready to share the love with the gals in your life! Be sure to check out our Instagram and Facebook in the next few days for our Galentine's Giftaway announcement! Yup, you guessed it. We're giving away the gift box you see in this post. And because we believe it's always better to gift than receive, if you're the winner, we'll drop-ship the gift to your galentine of choice! Good luck!
