Celebrating Galentine's Day!

As Valentine's Day approaches, the spotlight often falls on romantic relationships, leaving the beautiful realm of friendship in the shadows. However, there's a delightful alternative that puts friendships at the forefront - Galentine's Day. Originating from the popular TV show "Parks and Recreation," Galentine's Day, celebrated on February 13th, is a day dedicated to cherishing the bonds of sisterhood. And what better way to illuminate those connections than with the warm and comforting glow of candles?

Friendships are like candles - they bring warmth, light, and a touch of magic to our lives. Galentine's Day is the perfect occasion to celebrate these cherished connections, whether with your lifelong besties or the incredible women you've met along the way. The flickering flame of a candle symbolizes the enduring flame of friendship, casting a warm glow that mirrors the joy and camaraderie shared among gal pals.

Selecting the perfect candle for your Galentine's celebration is essential in setting the right ambiance. Consider your friends' preferences and personalities when making your choice for a Galentine Gift.

Choose scents that evoke pleasant memories or match your friends' favorite fragrances. Floral scents like Rhubarb & Rose or Strawberry & Rhubarb can add a touch of elegance.
Fruity scents like Thai Lime & Mango can bring a sense of freshness. Or a pure Vanilla scent such as our new Vanilla Royale may do the trick.

Maybe gift your friends a set of candles that represent different aspects of their personalities.A trio of candles, each with a distinct scent or theme, makes for a thoughtful and cohesive gift.

Once you've chosen the perfect candles, plan a Galentine's Day gathering filled with laughter, shared memories, and the cozy glow of candlelight. Here are some ideas to make your celebration extra special:

Candlelit Dinner: Host a candlelit dinner at home for a cozy and intimate setting.

Candlelit Movie Night: Set up a movie night with your favorite chick flicks, surrounded by an array of candles for the ultimate cozy atmosphere.

Candle Exchange: Encourage a candle exchange among friends. Each person can bring a candle that they feel represents their friendship with another, creating a heartfelt and personalized gift exchange.

Galentine's Day is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the incredible women in your life. A friend, girlfriend or best friend, by incorporating candles into your festivities, you not only create a warm and inviting atmosphere but also symbolize the enduring flame of friendship. So, light up those candles, surround yourself with your favorite gals, and bask in the glow of the love and laughter that only true friendships can provide. Happy Galentine's Day from Kettleby Kitchen!
