Your Besties Deserve Roses This Galentine’s Day

Yes, it’s Galentine’s Day, the one day of the year devoted to the love you have for the women in your life, and you can thank a television show for giving it to you. In 2010 on an episode of NBC’s Parks and Recreation the idea for a day spent celebrating female friendships was born when main character Leslie Knope rounded up her ladies, took them to lunch, gave them gifts and proclaimed February 13 “Galentine’s . . . only the best day of the year.”

Here at The Flower Bucket, we’ve got an idea about what you can give your girl gang to show them how much you care.

It all starts with the roses, which are on point already for Valentine’s Day. But instead of going the long-stemmed red route, we suggest doing something less expected, and more in line with expressing your appreciation of friendship. And for that, it doesn’t get more perfect than these Lovely Lavender Roses.

This makes a great arrangement to send to your mom, sister or bestie on Galentine’s Day, with its interesting hue that reads as a little more stylish than classic red roses. Get these to her office on February 13 and you’ll be ensuring that she’s the first one there to get flowers that week. You can send along a card with a great quote about friendship and how much she means to you, too.
