What do you think of when someone mentions Valentine’s Day? Hearts, flowers, teddy bears, everything pink and red? Sure, it can be a beautiful celebration for those in loving relationships… But let’s be honest – the magic has gone out of it for many – it doesn’t really surprise a partner anymore! So WE think it’s much more fun for best friends to exchange little love notes and messages and truly surprise their favorite person or people by telling them how much they love each other. Who says a soulmate has to be romantic? Over recent years, February 13th has become increasingly known as ‘Galentine’s Day’. A play on the celebration of the following day, Galentine’s Day is when we show some love to the ladies in our lives, whether single or not, and celebrate platonic female friendship as opposed to romantic love. But the ladies don’t have to have all the fun!
So go on, show your appreciation for the gals or guys in your life that brighten it up in a platonic way. Discover a boatload of ideas of Valentine’s messages for friends below, to be sent on Galentine’s or Valentine’s Day, to make sure everyone feels the love this year. There’s even a special inclusion for anyone who’s hoping for a friendship to turn into something more at the end. Share the love, people! 🙂
By the way: If you’re searching for Valentine’s Day card quotes for your (not-platonic) special someone, here are six messages for you.
