10 Favorite Things To Do For Valentine’s and Galentine’s Day

January 21, 2024


At Danielle Gibson Events, we love celebrating Valentine’s and Galentine’s Day! Have you seen this Galentine’s Day party we curated with our Take Time To Toast industry vendors, friends, and followers? Hoping all the pink at our Take Time To Toast parties here and here get you inspired! (They look like they could be a Valentine’s Day party!) Need more inspiration? Check out our Valentine’s and Galentine’s Day Pinterest boards for our hundreds of pins over the years.

Below is a list of our 10 favorite things to do… Enjoy your Holiday!

1. Good Things Come To Those Who Bake

Sarah from Broma Bakery has a delicious lineup of things to bake for someone in your life. Check out her top 10 list just for Valentine’s Day.

2. Call In A Flavor! (Order your sweet goods instead of baking)

A favorite for birthday cakes through the pandemic, Milk Bar is also offering special treats available to ship nationwide.

3. Eat Your Heart Out!

Create a charcuterie board with some heartfelt touches as a happy hour (or dinner?). Here we used heart-shaped crackers and a heart shaped nut dish for our Fantesca Estate & Winery DG Events photo styling project. You can watch our Instagram Reels on how we put this together.

4. Send A Valentine’s Day Message “ON” A Bottle

Fantesca Estate & Winery is collaborating with a local Napa Valley calligrapher Napa Note to offer beautiful custom calligraphy messages on their red wine bottles for Valentine’s Day. (photo styling by us!)

5. Flower Shower

Need a little self-care to pick you up? You can shower yourself or others with flowers by ordering a eucalyptus shower bouquet here or here!

6. I Love You More Than…Chocolate

A modern take on the traditional Valentine’s Day chocolates from andSons Chocolatier. Check out their beautiful box cover here.

7. You Had Me In Stitches

Lingua Franca started as a small line of sustainably-sourced, fair trade luxury cashmere sweaters, all hand-stitched by women in NYC. Today, they have expanded to include several categories of hand embroidered items for you to customize as well as seasonal ready-to-wear collections, several accessories, and even wallpaper! So many “lovely” options to give or wear on Valentine’s Day!

8. Think Inside The Box!

Bestowe, a woman-owned small business based in the San Francisco Bay Area, creates gift boxes for every occasion imaginable and of course, for Valentine’s Day.

9. Did you become a Pandemic Puzzle Person? (PPP)

Heart-shaped, puzzles with your own photo can be ordered through Minted.

10. You Warm My Heart ♥︎

Put some love into your waffles and make them for breakfast, dinner, or dessert!
Mini heart waffles will make everyone happy any time of the day on Valentine’s Day!

Wishing you a happy and healthy Galentine’s and Valentine’s Day from Danielle Gibson Events in Napa, California.
