When was the last time you did something special for your girlfriend/bestie? For that someone you call “your only real friend” – like Selena Gomez described her friendship with Tayloe Swift. Celebrity news aside, your girlfriend might be your BFF, soulmate, childhood friend or even once-upon-a-time benchmate in school.  Agree, you don’t need a special occasion to remember and cherish your girlfriend. But if you haven’t caught up in a while or told them recently how much they mean to you, today might be a good day to do that. Because today, August 1, is National Girlfriend Day!

What’s About August 1?

The first day of August is celebrated as National Girlfriend Day in the US. We do not know how such a day came about. But to heck with all that. When it gives you a good excuse to do something extra special for that extraordinary woman in your life, why miss it?

Remember, this day is not just for your “girlfriend”, your female romantic partner. We have Valentine’s Day (1) for that, don’t we? (Well, it could be that your BFF is also your girlfriend.) But today is especially for the girlfriend who you can be yourself around, with whom you can let all your guard down, the one who always has your back, who knows your deepest secrets that even your boyfriend might not know, who’s been with you through thick and thin.

How to Celebrate National Girlfriend Day?

There’s no one way of celebrating national girlfriend day. Just like there are no rules when it comes to the friendship between you two. But you can always send out a gesture to remind her of how much you care. And to remind yourself of how grateful you are for having this person in your life.

How about a surprise dinner date so you both can spend some time together?

Or a special gift to show how much she means to you. Something that is meaningful to her. Maybe even flowers? Who said flowers are only for wooing? What woman doesn’t love a surprise bouquet at her door on a mundane week day?

Or maybe you have a unique way of celebrating this day that is exclusive to your friendship. Because every friendship has its own shared memories and special sense of camaraderie.

But we understand that not everyone has the time or means for such material celebrations. And in fact, a warm message is all it takes to make her day, make her feel special and valued. A true message from your heart. 

But for those who need some help with expressing their feelings in words, we have you covered. Here are some quotes you can send her today.

Happy National Girlfriends Day to the incredible woman who lifts me up, stands by my side, and makes every day a little brighter. You make the world a better place.

Dear girlfriend, I feel lucky to have you. Thanks for making every day worth living.

I’m forever thankful to you for coming into my life. Happy Girlfriend Day to You.

A true friend is someone who thinks you are a good egg even when they know you’re slightly cracked. Thank you for being that friend for me. Happy National Girlfriend Day!

Thank you for coming into my life and making me so happy. I loved you yesterday, love you still, always have, always will! 

You’re the sunshine in my life and I know we will always be there for each other. I miss you.

You’re the best friend that makes my good times better and hard times easier. We are friends for life, and no one can replace you.
