Gift ideas for your galentines + A giveaway!

Entertainment One sent me complimentary copies of A Bad Moms Christmas to facilitate this post and Penguin Random House Canada sent me The Wedding Date for an upcoming review. All opinions are my own and from the heart. 

What would we do without our girlfriends? Ideally we’d show them how much they’re appreciated throughout the year but sometimes we fall down on the job. (Well I know I do. Barb, if you’re reading this, I miss you!! Let’s make a date to catch up and watch Gabriel Suits!) Remember your galentines this Valentine’s Day and treat them to something they’ll love, whether it’s a few hours of babysitting so they can enjoy some time for themselves or an “I care” package of thoughtful treats. Here are some of my favourite gift ideas and a giveaway to share with a friend. ❤️ 

A Bad Moms Christmas Bad Mom necklace

Macarons, Loblaws. A Bad Moms Christmas (just released on Blu-ray™ and On Demand!), Amazon. Sequin heart mesh bralette, Forever 21.

A Bad Moms Christmas follows our three under-appreciated and over-burdened women as they rebel against the challenges and expectations of the Super Bowl for moms: Christmas. And if creating a more perfect holiday for their families wasn’t hard enough, they have to do all of that while hosting and entertaining their own mothers. By the end of the journey, our moms will redefine how to make the holidays special for all and discover a closer relationship with their mothers.”

FYI, it’s definitely not one for the kiddos (we’re talking 17+), with a fair bit of raunchy humour and adult content. The cast includes some of my favourite talents: Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn, Christine Baranski, Susan Sarandon and Cheryl Hines.
