10 Things To Do For Valentine’s/Galentine’s Day

January 26, 2021

At Danielle Gibson Events, we love celebrating Valentine’s and Galentine’s Day! In 2018 we designed a Galentine’s Day party with our Take Time To Toast industry vendors, friends and followers. Since we can’t gather this year due to Covid, we want to inspire you to find something you can do at home with your household or Quaranteam. Get inspired by the all the pink at our Take Time To Toast parties here and here (that look like they could be a Valentine’s Day party) and 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 for 2021. Enjoy!

1. Good Things Come To Those Who Bake.

Sarah from Broma Bakery has a delicious line up of things to bake for the one you love! Check out her top 10 list just for Valentine’s Day.

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

Local to the San Francisco North Bay – Teeny Cake bakery is offering an array of treats for pick-up and delivery.
(They also have gluten free options!)
La Saison, local to Napa County, is offering a cookie making kit that
is also available in a plant based/gluten free option. (ships nationwide)
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 as a happy hour (or dinner?) with some heart felt touches. Here we used heart shaped crackers and a heart 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 Message ON A Bottle.

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

5. Flower Shower.

If you want to shower yourself or others with flowers in the San Francisco Bay Area, consider Soulflower Design Studio, they’ve partnered with Pretty Please Bakeshop who’s offering fun dessert boards and sweets kits for all ages!  Outside of the area try their everlasting bouquet for long lasting flowers.
Need a little self care pick me up? You can shower yourself or others with flowers by ordering a eucalyptus shower bouquet! (ships nationwide)

6. I Love You More Than Chocolate…and CBDs!

A modern take on the traditional Valentine’s Day chocolates from andSons Chocolatier. Check out their beautiful box cover here.
Yup, Martha Stewart is getting into the CBD game! Her traditional shaped Valentine’s Day heart sampler offers 6 different flavors of CBD gummies.

7. 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.
Are you a Pandemic Puzzle Person? (PPP)
