Speaking someone’s love language doesn’t just apply to romantic relationships. We can and should practice them in our friendships and family ties, too. And what better place to start than with the women who love, inspire, and lift us up? A thoughtful Galentine’s Day gift idea is a natural opportunity to express just how much she means to you this holiday.
After decades of counseling and research, Dr. Gary Chapman, author of The 5 Love Languages, discovered that everyone “speaks” a primary love language. Each love language is both a way to express and experience love emotionally. He explains the five love languages to us here.
If you want to give better this Valentine’s Day—or really any day—find out your mother, grandmother, sister, mentor, or best friend’s primary love language(s).
