Hey!

Whilst the 13th of February marks Pancake Day, it also marks Galentine’s Day! Galentine’s Day is a day for celebrating the wonderful pals you have in your life who identify as women. It’s about celebrating what you do for each other and the love that you share. So in honour of all of that loveliness, I’ve compiled a list of cute and sassy cards and gifts from indie businesses that you can give to your pals, should you wish to!

1.Best Gal Pals Card - Liz Harry £2.50
How sweet is this card by Liz? I’m getting major My Little Pony vibes from this card design. This design is taken from her original hand drawn lettering, which just makes this even more beautiful.

Well this is the second card from Liz on the list because as you might be able to tell, I love her work! This super gorgeous pastel and dark pink sweetheart design is perfect for sending to your best gals.

3. Best Friends Interlocking Keyrings - Wren and Wilson £16
How cute are these zombie style laser cut wooden keyring designs? The little fingers can interlock so that you and your gal pal can make pinkie promises on the go! They are super sweet and unique and I love that they started life as original hand drawn illustrations.

5. Love Heart Pin - LauraGirlingIllo £6.00
These gorgeous pins are hand made and hand painted from polymer clay, so they are able to be customisable. There are three colours to choose from and you can choose the style of the design painted on the front. I just think these are super cute and would be perfect to send out to each of your pals.

6. Parks and Rec Candy Hearts Pin - Bunny Designs Shop £8.93
I don’t know about you, but Parks and Recreation pretty much started Galentine’s Day for me. I absolutely love Leslie Knope and everything she’s about so the fact that these three phrases from the show have been immortalised in cute love heart form. As far as enamel pins go, this one is giving me major 90s, cutesy vibes. Perfect for giving to your best gal.

7. Girl Gang A6 Postcard Set - Girl and Cat Studio £7
How beautifully illustrated are these feminist postcards?! “Never underestimate the power of a girl gang”, now that is a power phrase that is perfect for sharing with the best ladies in your life. You get 4 in a pack too so you won’t have to miss anyone out!

Now that you’re full to the brim with Galentine’s day gift inspo, I think my job is complete! How amazing were those ideas? And all from indie businesses that are going to be doing happy dances left, right and centre when they get an order. I hope this inspires you to shop small and independent this year!
