Have You Heard Of Galentines Day?

So Valentines Day is nearly here and this year we thought we’d focus on something a little different. Celebrating with your girl (gal) friends (although to be honest we think any friend is worth celebrating) and this is the best excuse ever.

Social media over the past few weeks has been flooded with ideas for girly get togethers and highlights have been food and of course a little drink or two!

Read on for some places to visit to get inspiration if you fancy spreading the love to your favourite ladies this year….


Brunch is the perfect excuse to create something a little different and these heart shaped food ideas from Hello Fresh are perfect. We particularly like this Egg In A Heart Toast.

…and if you really wanted to go all out most supermarkets are selling heart shaped food at the moment like these heart shaped sausages from Asda (which we’ve already test and they are yum!).

If brunch isn’t really your thing but snacks are, there are so many available. Here are our favourites…

Jelly Love Letters from M&S

Valentines Hearts and Hugs Donuts from Krispy Creme

Valentines Biscuits from BBC Good Food


Whether you fancy cocktails, fizz or hot chocolate we’ve got it all covered below…

For hot chocolate why not make a hot chocolate bar with different flavours and toppings like heart shaped marsh mallows, sprinkles and spoons.
