Just search #GirlsSupportingGirls and the most incredible stories pop up. From your girlfriend speaking up in meetings when a male boss credits a male colleague with work you did, to random kindness from strangers on the subway, not to mention all the listening, hugs and thoughtful messages that help you navigate the daily difficulties that life throws at us.
Female friendships are truly special. You always know that you can rely on your girlfriends to answer your call or text, with honest, reliable advice. To say the things you know, but are trying to ignore. To help you find perspective, debate solutions to problems, and to hold you accountable for creating change… But most importantly, to have fun, and make you laugh!
Strength comes from vulnerability, and our ability to connect, share, understand and relate to our own, and each other's emotions. After all, we are stronger together. So how do we say thank you to the wonderful women we are so lucky to have in our lives? Here are some ideas:
Write a LUV Note
Receiving a handwritten note is one of life’s delights. In the age of technology when writing a text is quick and convenient, taking the time to write a handwritten note shows someone that they are worth your time.
Luxurious stationery makes receiving a letter all the more special. We love Smythson for its classic and beautiful handcrafted designs.
Buy them a First Edition of a Beloved Book
Tracking down a first edition can be difficult but it really is one of the most special gifts you can give a book lover. Whether it’s a book you know they cherish, or a much-loved children’s story that will bring back memories, going to the effort of finding a first edition really shows how much you care. Try one of New York’s best antiquarian bookstores to find a gem.
Send a Luxury Hamper
Discovering the contents of a luxury hamper is guaranteed to make her feel special.
What could be more special than a luxury hamper from the fabulous Harrods of London? The Charbonnel et Walker Champagne Selection Hamper is our favorite: a decadent combination of champagne truffles as well as a bottle of rose Moet champagne - the perfect Galentine’s Day (or any day) gift.
Give the Gift of Fitness
Working out together is one of the best ways to spend time with close friends. Gift them a Classpass subscription so that you can try out different classes and studios together. Our recommendations for the most fun: aerial yoga and belly dancing!
Give the Motivation to Move
We’re obsessed with minimalist luxury activewear brand, Wone. The female-owned brand is dedicated to performance, sustainability and innovation. Working with the world’s best manufacturers, it has created a beautiful and sleek collection which will definitely make you want to get active.
The LUV Travel Yoga Mat is the perfect companion to your Wone outfit. Made of biodegradable natural tree rubber, it gives great grip and is easily folded into a bag or suitcase, making it the perfect gift for a friend who travels. Not only that, but for a limited time, if you buy the LUV Travel Yoga Mat you’ll get a free BKR LUV soda lime glass water bottle - whether you keep that or gift it, is up to you!
Remind Them of the Importance of Self-Care
We all know that women have a tendency to put themselves last, so encourage your closest friends to be as good to themselves as they are to you, with some luxurious self-care gifts.
The gift of energy and sleep: the LUV CBD All Day Tincture Set has three unique blends of CBD designed especially for morning, noon and night. For a limited time only, this set also comes with our beautiful gold clutch bag.
The gift of pleasure: for that friend with whom no conversation is off-limits, a Lelo vibrator is the perfect empowering gift.
Escape Together for the Weekend
Quality time with close friends is rare and precious. Commit to a weekend away with each other (with no partners or kids!) once a year, and treat yourselves to some spa time for a health reset, and some much-deserved pampering. Here are some of our favorite weekend spa getaways.
