The Geeky Hostess is gonna help you get your manners on! Each Monday, we’ll focus on a topic of etiquette. We’ll take a look at the classic rules (using Emily Post as a guide), and then evaluate the rules for our daily lives, creating a guide to “Geek Etiquette.” Have an etiquette question or topic suggestion? Email tara@geekyhostess.com!

Happy Galentine’s Day! To celebrate this day of strong, independent women, I’m going to let one of the strongest, most independent women I know take over this etiquette column: Leslie Knope. Take a look at her guidelines for a great Galentine’s Day and see if you can put something together quickly. I’ll be at brunch with some of my gals, trying to follow her rules!

Find more tips from Leslie here!

Stay tuned for a post later today with gift ideas (and a fun cupcake recipe!) for all the gals and guys in  your life.
