It goes without saying — your girlfriends make the world go round. They teach you new things, inspire you to be the best you can be, and help you see the silver lining in whatever challenges come your way. August 1 is National Girlfriends Day, and it’s a perfect time to let your girlfriends know just how much you appreciate and adore them. Check out these great gift ideas you can pick up right here in Novato!
Virtual facial party, anyone? We know your girlfriends love to relax and unwind, and Moonstone Skin and Body Care is offering virtual spa parties to help friends connect and pamper together. An expert clinician will walk you through luxurious at-home facials as a group, so you can self-care and socialize all at once. For those 21 and over, pick up a nice bottle of wine from Mantra Wines on Grant Avenue, and propose a toast to celebrate your friendships! Mantra Wines is also offering free local Novato deliveries by appointment.
To celebrate your friends’ athletic sides, check out Bicycle Brüstop on Grant Avenue, where you can find an array of stylish summer accessories — like hydration packs, lite gloves, and comfortable jerseys. Enjoy a socially distanced bike ride in matching outfits, or swap photos from your solo rides! Just down the street is All Season Soccer, the perfect place to pick up footwear and fan gear for your soccer-loving ladies. You can also find cloth face masks with team logos on them, so your girlfriends can represent their teams while protecting their communities.
If your girlfriends like things that sparkle, stop by Valentino Fine Jewelers to find a beautiful selection of fine jewelry, or custom order matching pieces from owner and third-generation jeweler Mark Singerman. On Mirabella Avenue, Stained Glass of Marin has an array of gorgeous glasswork and decorative pieces to add some pizzazz to any room or fancy up a window display.
Finally, you can never go wrong with flowers! Morning Glory Florist on Grant Avenue is open for pick up or delivery and has the perfect summer bouquets to make your friends smile. From sunflowers to roses, the team at Morning Glory Florist will create stunning bouquets that are as unique as your friends are.
No matter where the day takes you, we hope you’ll think local on National Girlfriends Day!
