Why You Should Celebrate Galentine’s Day

While relationships may be under the spotlight this Valentine’s Day, women this year can show a little love for their girlfriends the day before the 14th.

On the 13th of February, friendship is in the air and while significant others may be good for the heart, girlfriends are there for the soul, which is why reminding them of their importance every once in a while is just as necessary as buying for your loved one on Valentine’s Day.

A little originality and class goes into buying gifts for that group of close friends.

Brisbane Weekender have chosen three items from the best designers and brands to guide anyone who is unsure what to give their girlfriends this Galentine’s Day.


There’s nothing more feminine than hot cocoa and loose leaf tea, which the Seventh Duchess has down to a fine art. Other gorgeous products available include homely items such as cushions and mugs that will make your girlfriends want to cuddle up on Valentine’s Day and stay inside.

Our pick – Coco Loves Cacao $16.95



Boutiques worldwide prefer stylestalker apparel for its ability to master the art of trend prediction. Not only are their products on point, the wearability of the clothing makes it highly desirable.

Our pick – Don’t Worry Be Yonce Shirt $39.95



Frankie Magazine is notoriously indie, and while some may even go as far as to call it ‘hipster’, the publication’s cuteness, girlyness, and intellectual wit still makes it the coolest magazine on the stands.

Our pick – Frankie Subscription (12 months) $59.95
