Get Ready for Galentine’s Day & Valentine’s Day with Kroger Dos and Don’ts!

Love is in the air, and whether you’re celebrating with your besties on Galentine’s Day or your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day, Kroger is here to help you make it special. But with so many options available, navigating the aisles can feel daunting. Fear not, lovebirds and BFFs! With our handy guide, you’ll be prepped for both holidays like a pro.

Dos & Don’ts for Galentine’s Day:


  • Embrace the spirit of friendship: Galentine’s Day is all about celebrating the amazing women in your life. Plan a potluck party, get crafty with DIY projects, or host a movie marathon with comfy clothes and delicious snacks. Kroger’s selection of frozen pizzas, dips, and finger foods makes hosting a breeze.
  • Think beyond flowers: While flowers are always appreciated, consider gifting something personalized that reflects your friend’s unique interests. Does she love to bake? Gift her a cute apron and baking supplies. Is she a bookworm? Pick out her new favorite read. You can even create a custom gift basket with Kroger’s wide variety of goodies.
  • Get creative with decorations: Turn your space into a haven of friendship with festive decorations. You can find balloons, streamers, and themed tableware at Kroger to set the mood. String fairy lights, add some fun throw pillows, and don’t forget the Galentine’s Day playlist!
  • Make it memorable: Take photos, write heartfelt notes, and capture the laughter and joy of the day. These memories will become cherished keepsakes.


  • Forget the importance of communication: Let your gal pals know you’re thinking of them, even if you can’t celebrate together. Send a heartfelt message, drop off a small gift, or simply give them a call to catch up.
  • Stress over perfection: The focus is on celebrating your friendships, not creating a picture-perfect scene. Embrace the imperfections, have fun, and enjoy each other’s company.
  • Neglect self-care: While celebrating others is important, don’t forget to take care of yourself. Take a relaxing bath with Kroger’s bath bombs and aromatherapy candles, or indulge in a spa day with your favorite face mask.

Dos & Don’ts for Valentine’s Day:


  • Set the mood: Create a romantic ambiance with candles, soft music, and dimmed lights. Kroger’s floral department has stunning flower arrangements to set the scene, and their selection of scented candles will transform your space.
  • Cook with love: Ditch the reservations and cook a delicious meal together. Kroger has everything you need, from fresh ingredients to easy-to-follow recipes. Don’t forget to pick up a bottle of wine or sparkling cider to make it extra special.
  • Plan a thoughtful gift: Personalized gifts go a long way. Consider a framed photo, a piece of jewelry, or a book by their favorite author. You can even create a personalized gift basket with their favorite snacks and drinks from Kroger.
  • Go beyond the traditional: If you’re looking for something unique, plan a special activity together. Explore a new restaurant, take a scenic hike, or try a fun class like pottery or painting. Kroger has gift cards for a variety of experiences, making it easy to find the perfect one.
  • Express your love: Don’t underestimate the power of words. Write a heartfelt letter, tell them how much you appreciate them, and shower them with affection.


  • Make unrealistic expectations: Don’t compare your Valentine’s Day to what you see on social media. Focus on creating a meaningful experience that celebrates your unique connection.
  • Forget the small gestures: Grand gestures are lovely, but it’s the little things that often matter most. Leave a love note on the mirror, make them their favorite breakfast, or offer a relaxing massage.
  • Neglect communication: Talk to your partner about their expectations and desires for the day. Communication is key to ensuring you’re both on the same page and can create a Valentine’s Day you’ll cherish.
  • Overspend: Showing love doesn’t require draining your bank account. You can create a romantic and memorable evening without breaking the bank. Kroger’s affordable selection of Valentine’s Day essentials will help you celebrate without overspending.

Bonus Tip: No matter how you choose to celebrate, don’t forget to pick up a Valentine’s Day card at Kroger. It’s a simple way to express your love and appreciation in a lasting way.
