Our most beloved Parks and Recreation is sadly ending its run this year. In its time, Parks has given many miraculous gifts to the world; Chris Pratt, Leslie Knope’s idealism, permission to Treat Yo’ Self, and Chris Pratt, to name but a few. I think the show’s most important contribution is that celebration of female friendship, only the best day of the year, Galentines Day! This February 13th, follow in Leslie’s footsteps and celebrate your best lady friends by kicking it, breakfast-style. Any holiday built on a foundation of delicious breakfast food is alright by me.
To celebrate, we’ve rhapsodized over some of our favorite female friendships, real, fictional and well, imaginary.
Leslie and Ann
The beautiful friendship that started it all! We all need a friend like Leslie who will shower us with outlandish compliments and meaningful gifts.
Tina and Amy
They’ve known each other since they were both members of a Chicago based improv group. Now, they’ve each got an amazing sitcom to their name, they’re the best award show hosts in the business, and they have a new movie coming out this year. How do we get to be part of their gang?
Ilana and Abbi
If you haven’t had a chance to see Broad City, rectify that now. Ilana and Abbi are young, broke, and carefree in New York and having amazing adventures together. It’s rude, crude and hilarious, and these gals are the new best friends we want to get in trouble with. (The show is also produced by Amy Poehler so you may sense a theme here.)
Taylor and everyone you’ve ever wanted to be friends with
Taylor Swift’s Instagram feed is a portal into another world where all the coolest girls hang out together, having the most fun, and looking amazing. Emma Stone, Lorde, Tavi Gevinson, Lena Dunham, they’re all here. She’s got it figured out, that one.
Hillary and Meryl
This may have been a one-time encounter, but I like to imagine them hanging out, plotting to take over the world and solve all our problems. I, for one, welcome our new overlords.
Treat Yo’ Self (and your friend!) this Galentines Day!
If you would like to treat a friend to a Galentines day gift, you’ll find gorgeous trinkets here, and because you’re such a good friend, why not treat yourself to something new from here? You deserve it!
