Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and while that fact makes some people giddy with excitement, others … not so much. We’re not ones to force a celebration on anyone, and we’re happy to see this oft-maligned holiday morphing into things like Galentine’s Day, which celebrates your girlfriends and gives you the chance to tell your best galpals how you feel about them. Then there’s Palentine’s Day, which is the chance to celebrate all of your friends, regardless of gender.
For the record: Valentine’s Day is celebrated on February 14th, while Galentine’s and Palentine’s both take place the day before, on February 13th.
As you might guess, though, we at Goodly are all about celebrating. We also believe that any gift can be a Valentine’s / Galentine’s / Palentine’s Day gift if you know your person well enough. (Especially if that person is you!) The great news is that we’ve got so many gift ideas to choose from!
Let’s take a look at some possible moods this Valentine’s / Galentine’s / Palentine’s Day, and what gift ideas work best for them!
Mood: Relaxation (or Romance!)
Whether you’re looking to set the mood for romance or relaxation, it’s hard to go wrong with bath goods. A hot bath or shower is a great way to unwind and wash away the stress of the day. Looking for a little exfoliation in your de-stress routine? Check out the Choco Body Scrubs, decadent soap bars made from sugar and cocoa butter, that look and smell like candy bars! If you’ve got an actual bathtub, don’t miss out on our foaming bath tubes, which are available in multiple scents. We’ve got other soaps too, as well as candles and more, to really set the mood!
Wine or cocktails? We say, why choose? If you and/or your person are in a drinking mood this February 14th, consider one of our themed gift boxes (like the Cocktail Night Gift Box above), which has just about everything you need for a drinking party. We’ve got a gift box for Wine Lovers too! Need something a little smaller than a gift box? No problem! Check out our unbreakable wine glasses, or our cocktail kits and other goodies to elevate your cocktail game. You might consider a bigger step and get help from books like Wine for Normal People and the Bar None Drink Journal!
Mood: Practical But Fun
Oh, have we got you covered here. So many items in the Goodly inventory fall into this category that we suggest simply starting with our Best Sellers. But since we made the brought it up, think about your recipient and what they might like. (Don’t forget to include yourself as a recipient!) Maybe a fun, quirky pair of socks? We’ve got socks for every personality! Maybe a Leuchtturm notebook for organization and journaling. Or body care items like butter spread lip balm (above), which will banish dry, chapped lips in style. We specialize in things like home goods, office accessories (bet you never thought those could be fun!) and more. Dive on in!
If there’s anything we do better than “practical but fun,” it’s pure, joyful fun. Items that fall into this mood category include snacks and treats, a unique bottle opener (shown above), hilarious fridge magnets (like the one shown above) and even fun toothbrushes. These are great “just-because” gifts that will take on special significance for Galentine’s and Palentine’s Day gifts!
