Shine Together: Galentine's Day Jewellery Gifts for Your BFFs
Cheers to the season of love and friendship! As Valentine's Day approaches, it’s time to celebrate your nearest and dearest. Whether you’re single or attached, your friend group has been at the centre of your life through good times and bad --- and that’s why we love the idea of Galentine's Day! This celebration of sisterhood is all about honouring the importance and beauty of female friendship. This year, why not send a message of love with a thoughtful Galentine's Day jewellery gift?
To help you find inspiration for that unforgettable Galentine's Day gift that she’ll cherish for years to come, let’s look at some of the pieces that our girls in Ireland and around the globe have been loving.
What Is Galentine's Day?
Before we dive into Galentine's Day gift inspiration, let’s take a quick look back at the history of this unique holiday. The Valentine’s Day alternative (or extra celebration, depending on who you ask!) is celebrated on the 13th of February. This modern holiday came from an episode of Parks and Recreation back in 2010. In the episode, Leslie Knope took her female friends out for a brunch of waffles and mimosas. The world fell head over heels for the idea and women around the world have united to celebrate those fabulous friendships on this day ever since.
Welcome Palentine’s Day
Of course, it’s not just the gals who have relationships worth celebrating. To honour friendships of all kinds, the gender-neutral Palentine’s Day quickly came to life on the internet following the iconic Galentine's Day episode. Today, you’ll find people celebrating Galentine's Day and Palentine’s Day alike. And, why not? When it comes to reasons to celebrate, we say: the more, the merrier!
Galentine's Day Jewellery Gifts
Long gone are the days when we had to wait around for a man to buy us a sparkling bauble. Galentine's Day jewellery gifts are all about treating that someone special to something special. Whether it’s your sister, partner in crime, or childhood BBF, we could all use a token of love. Here are a few Galentine's Day gift ideas to get you inspired.
PÓG Spinning Bracelet
If you’re after a Galentine's, Palentine’s, or Valentine’s Day gift idea, the PÓG Spinning Bracelet is a perfect pick. They come in every colour of the rainbow, just like our friends, so you can find the right shade for everyone in your crew.
If you want to give your friend a kiss (or a póg, as we say in Irish) that they can touch, see, and feel anytime they need a little boost, these spinning bracelets are a gorgeous gift for Galentine's Day.
And it’s tactile! Here at PÓG, we celebrate neurodiversity and know how magical it can be to always have a fidget bracelet at hand. That’s why we added reversible and tactile charms to our PÓG Spinning Bracelet so that you can have a focus aid or anxiety relief anytime, anywhere.
Planning Tip: Got a friend who is always on the go and into a more sporty style? Check out the PÓG Sport Bracelet. It’s also a fidget bracelet and comes with a woven nylon and silicone band that makes it waterproof and easy to clean.
PÓG Spinning Ring
Another fun and fabulous piece of fidget jewellery, the PÓG Spinning Ring gives a kiss to all the special people in your life. This fidget ring offers a comforting tactile experience for any time you need a bit of positive reinforcement (and don’t we all sometimes!).
Choose from a range of vivid colours with a silver band or go with a gold and black spinning ring for a classic style.
For a lovely Galentine’s Day gift that your marvellous mates can wear near and dear to their hearts, go for the PÓG Locket. This colourful locket has a hidden kiss inside that they can always keep close to them.
Looking for a bold minimalistic look? The Gold Locket is a prime pick for that friend who loves a chic and understated style.
Things to Do for Galentine's Day: Inspiration
Rather than dazzling the object of your affection with whirlwind romantic gestures, Galentine's Day is more of a down-to-earth, lighthearted celebration. Think brunches, spa days, and wine tastings. When it comes to Galentine's Day, there are no rules or crazy expectations. This is the day to do what makes you happy and celebrate what makes you remarkable.
What Is the Secret Cupid for Galentine’s Day?
Galentine’s Day Secret Cupid is a smart and simple way to celebrate the holiday and add some fun to your February. Just like many of us do a Secret Santa for Christmas, a Secret Cupid for Galentine’s Day takes the stress and expense out of shopping for the group. Rather than getting something for all of your friends, keep it simple by choosing a name at random and having everyone matched up with just one person they are going to buy a gift for.
Supporting Local Businesses in Ireland
When you’re gift shopping, go local and sustainable. Here at PÓG, we are proud to have waste-free packaging and give 2.5% of our profits to JIGSAW, a leading mental health services charity for young people in Ireland.
