Gifts for Your Gals: Because They’re Worth It!
There’s no better time to show your best girls how much you appreciate them than on February 14th right? Buying gifts for Galentine’s day is a new-ish concept, but it’s one I am absolutely here for.
We spend so much of our twenties and thirties searching for that perfect romantic love. But perhaps some of the deepest and most meaningful connections of our life are already right there in front of us, in the shape of our girls, our mates, our ‘day ones’. Don’t get me wrong, I love the idea of being showered with gifts by my husband, or a jaw-droppingly handsome secret admirer on Valentine’s Day (chances are slim to none). But when it comes to buying gifts, I’m more inclined to splash out on my pals.
Buying gifts for Galentine’s Day (it’s got a great ring to it dontcha think!?) and handing them over to your nearest and dearest friends is about saying, thank you for always being there. Through the good times, the bad times… and the terribly hungover times. You don’t need to buy Galentine’s gifts just for single friends either… this ain’t no pity party! Think of it as a token of your love, after all, our platonic love stories often long outlive all the other types. Gifts don’t have to be super expensive of course, but if you’re really wanting to splash out you might want to invest in a presidium gem tester for any vintage finds you decide to invest in.
If there’s a fabulous friend in your life who deserves a treat for this February, then you have to check out Daisy London’s latest collection. I’ve only just recently discovered their divine jewellery and I can’t wait to share it with my girlfriends.
I’m obsessed with low key, pared back, timeless pieces and Daisy London is brimming with them. I absolutely love the fact that they’re a British brand. In fact the brand started out on Portobello Road, which was my absolute favourite place to go and browse for trinkets and treats when I lived in London.
I was lucky enough to be gifted a few pieces from their current collection and… well… you know when you open a package and you immediately think ‘This is gonna be GOOD’? The packaging and presentation is just sublime and feels super luxurious and high end. You also get a beautiful Look Book packed with styling ideas to make you swoon.
When it comes specifically to purchasing gifts for Galentine’s Day, my three top picks would be one of their stunning sterling silver stacking rings, their beautiful signature Daisy necklace, or for something super fun and a bit quirky, you should check out their Aphrodite range.
Daisy London also stock beautiful pamper packs stocked with everything your best pal will need to relax and recharge her batteries. There’s literally nothing this brand hasn’t thought of.
So there you go, I hope you have a wonderful day on February 14th, whether it’s with your Valentine, your Galentine… or whether you decide to just treat yourself instead. Call it self care!
