How to Celebrate National Girlfriend Day

National Girlfriend Day Blog Header

Today is National Girlfriend’s Day! Or is it National Girlfriends’ Day? Let’s investigate. Because after all, grammar matters.

The former iteration declares today the day to honor your romantic counterpart. Perhaps it means a charming dinner date or a trip to the movies, complete with a thoughtful gift (like jewelry, of course). Or maybe that’s completely wrong! Because if today is actually National Girlfriends’ Day, that implies the day is all about girls having fun and celebrating friendship.

So for the sake of neutrality, we’re going to proclaim today National Girlfriend Day. Ladies can gift their besties small tokens of appreciation, while guys can give their girlfriends something to excite the relationship. Consider it a win-win!

To the Gal Pals

Make National Girlfriend Day all about showering the ladies in your life with affection. Whether she’s your best friend or your soul mate, these geometric earrings promise to give a cute angle to her wardrobe. And they’re right on trend! JCK recognizes this style from the 26th annual JCK Las Vegas show saying, “The prevailing shapes among jewelry designers this year feature sharp lines that signal a return to geometry class.”

To the Lovers

When she looks good, she feels good! So gift her a beautiful accented diamond necklace to show endearment and win her heart this National Girlfriend Day.

To Tie the Knot

Maybe we’re slightly biased, but if today were, in fact, National Girlfriend’s Day, wouldn’t you agree it’s the perfect opportunity to get down on one knee? Not only will she be completely surprised, but each year on this day she’d happily recall how she went from gleaming girlfriend to faithful fiancé (and eventually wifey). Don’t let her become the one that got away! Need ideas on how to pop the question? Follow The Knot’s @HowHeAsked Instagram.

Not Quite Ready?

Not ready to get engaged? While we love gushy proposal stories, take as much time as necessary. Instead, use this opportunity to solidify your relationship status. A promise ring makes a perfect choice, and it doubles as a friendship ring, promising companionship to last a lifetime.

So what are your thoughts? Do you think today is for celebrating romantic relationships, friendships, or both? Let us know how you feel about National Girlfriend Day in the comments below!
