The Best Valentine’s Day Gift for Your Galentine

Galentine's Day, Build-a-Bear, BAB, Best Valentine's Day Gift, Best Friends         Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays–not just because I love showing my family how much I love them, but because I love getting together with my girlfriends to celebrate Galentine’s Day! Each year one of best friends hosts a Galentine’s Day party at her boutique and it’s honestly something I look forward to every year!  I actually started bugging her about when Galentine’s Day would be back in December!

Galentine's Day, Build-a-Bear, BAB, Best Valentine's Day Gift - Valentine's Day- Pittsburgh With that being said, it can be tricky to come up with a unique Valentine’s Day gift for my Galentines that will last longer than chocolates or flowers!  This year, I found the best Valentine’s Day Gift for your Galentine! Have you ever heard of Build-a-Bear?  It’s been a go-to of mine for special occasion gifts that are high-quality, unique, customizable, and of course…cuddly! I was used to the idea of shopping in the Build-a-Bear store itself, but I didn’t realize how easily I could create a bear with the Giftshop on their website! There are stuffed animals for all occasions and tastes, and just a few clicks can make each one personal and heartfelt. I even spotted a Rosé bottle and glass set to go around the bear’s wrists! How adorable?!

Galentine's Day, Build-a-Bear, BAB, Best Valentine's Day Gift - Red Roses Teddy Bear

      This year, Build-a-Bear came out with the most beautiful Red Roses Teddy Bear for Valentine’s Day.  I immediately thought this was going to be the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for my Galentine.   This bear is an online exclusive item and can also be personalized with outfits, scents, sounds, accessories, and the cutest outfits! The most unique thing about this teddy, though, is the tulle-enhanced red rose design that serves as its fur. I was blown away by the intricacy of the flowers.  This bear is just as beautiful as a bouquet, but will last much longer! Even though the flowers appear to be delicate like real roses, the bear is still incredibly soft and meant to be cuddled!  I knew I had to bring my new pal with me to the Galentine’s Day event.  She was definitely a hit!  All the ladies loved her and were passing her around.

        The collection has so many more amazing options for Galentine’s and Valentine’s Day, including other animals besides bears! Between the pink sloth, lion with a heart-shaped mane, unicorn, bunny, (and even a skunk!), you’ll be able to find the perfect furry friend for just about anyone! The ability to customize each animal is what makes these gifts truly unique. I’m able to record my own message to go inside or even dress them up in outfits that remind me of my gals! I can’t wait to give these to my friends, and thanks to Build-a-Bear, you can use the code ROSES to get $5 off your purchase of $25 or more on Build-a-Bear to personalize your own gifts! I’d love to hear what fun creations you come up with!
