What to Write When You Send a Galentine to Celebrate Your Girlfriends

Galentine's Day is a real thing. It's a fun holiday where you celebrate your favorite girlfriends. Ideally you'll get together with them for brunch like Leslie Knope, the founder of Galentine's Day, suggests. But if you can't do that, celebrate them by sending them a card.

Here are some ideas of what to say in the card.

  • Things you love about her.
  • A compliment.
  • A favorite memory of her.
  • An inside joke.
  • An invitation.
  • A thank you.
  • A wish for her.

Three sentences is enough.The whole message can focus on one of the above prompts, or you can use three of the prompts and write a sentence about each. 

Here are some examples of what this looks like (and these may or may not have been taken directly from Galentines I sent).

Happy Galentine's Day! I'm excited for your new role as Nana. If I got to pick a grandmother, I'd want one as cool as you. 

I'm so lucky to have you as a Galentine. No one tells a story like you do, and your chocolate cake is to die for. I hope we can have a proper Galentine celebration soon.

Happy Galentine's Day! I'm so proud of you. You're handling your new life with a confident and adventurous heart. I'm excited to see what this year hold for you.

I'm so honored to have you as a Galentine. When I think of who are my funniest friends, you're on the top of the list. And when I think of who are my wisest friends, you're on the top of that list. You're also on the top of the weirdest friends, but that could possibly be a result of the unusual combination of being on the other two lists.

Happy Galentine's Day. Remember that picnic we had at the lake in high school when we laughed so much we peed in our pants? We should do that again soon.

Happy Galentine's Day! I can't believe we've been friends for over 30 years.Thanks for all the late phone calls, free babysitting and lunch dates. Thanks for all the other stuff that I can't write so that we both have plausible deniability. Looking forward to 30 more years of shenanigans. 

Happy Galentine's Day! Our friendship is the best thing about working at ABC. You are better than caffeine, break room snacks and Secret Santa. Don't ever quit, but if you do, take me with you.

Those should give you a good starting point about what to say in your cards to your Galentines this year. And the best part about Galentines is that it is sort of a made up holiday which means you can celebrate it any time of the year. So if you're super wrapped up in your Valentine plans, know that it is perfectly acceptable to send a Galentine this summer.

And as always, contact me if you need help.

Celebrate every day,
