Galentines Day is a relatively new tradition, but it's becoming increasingly popular each year – and with very good reason...

For those of you who don’t know, Galentines Day is all about celebrating our important female relationships and is fast becoming a prominent fixture on the feminist calendar. Celebrated on the 13th February (the day before Valentine’s Day), Galentines provides the perfect opportunity to lavish a little love on the brilliant women in our lives (as if we needed an excuse) and of course, not forgetting the other brilliant woman in our lives – ourselves!
