Friendship Is in the Air! Here’s How to Celebrate the Ann to Your Leslie This Galentine’s Day


If you’ve never had the chance to celebrate Galentine’s Day, now’s the time to break out the crushed diet soda cans and get to work on the handmade mosaic portraits. OK, maybe we’re not all as ingenious as Leslie Knope when it comes to gift giving, but her fictional Parks & Rec holiday has given us plenty of ways to show the women in our lives how much they mean to us. So, how exactly do you do that when you’re in a (temporary or permanent) long-distance friendship?

Founded on the idea that friendship is a relationship that is just as meaningful as anything romantic, Galentine’s Day – which takes place every Feb. 13 – is a time for declaring love and affection to the beautiful, glowing sun-goddesses in our lives, aka our closest friends. Sure, that could mean going all out and hand-crocheting each of them a bouquet of flower pens. But it can also mean writing them a personalized note to remind them how awesome they are, or even just taking some time to sip mimosas and reminisce about the good old days together over fritattas.

Whether you’re in a romantic relationship or not, it’s important to take that time ahead of Valentine’s Day to show your appreciation for the other relationships in your life. A friendship like Ann and Leslie’s is hard to come by – there are entire reels of their compliments for each other, after all. But if you’re lucky enough to have a friend who tells you how amazing you are on a regular basis and will wholeheartedly assure you that your sleeve will not catch on fire during your next date, remember to show them a little extra love this February. Check out a few ways to shower your Ann Perkins (or April or Donna or even Mona-Lisa) with all the affection she deserves ahead, because friendship is a kind of love all its own.
