We can all thank Leslie Knope from Parks and Rec for perhaps one of the best holiday celebrations… Galentine’s Day. Galentine’s Day is all about celebrating your girl gang because who needs boys, right?? So how can you prepare for February 13th and throw the best party, well here are some guaranteed good time Galentine’s Day ideas.
1. Fancy Dinner
A date night with your best friends? Doesn’t get much better than that! Have everyone get dressed up and go eat at a nice restaurant in the city. This makes for cute pics, good food, and lots of memories. This is one of the best Galentine’s Day ideas!
Girls night out is always a good idea but especially a good Galentine’s Day idea. Go out for a night on the town after your fancy dinner or eat dinner at home then go, whatever works! Make sure everyone is looking and feeling their best and make it a night to remember…or not to. ;))
3. Spa day
A spa day is the perfect way to spend some quality time with your girl gang and treat yo’ self (thats another Parks and Rec shoutout for any fans out there). Get some much needed relaxation and unwind with a massage, manicure, pedicure, or facial.
4. Pajama Party
Nothing like an old fashioned pajama party. Make it a potluck too and have everyone bring their favorite foods to have a dinner at home or snack on throughout the night! Watch all your favorite rom coms and play some games for the perfect night in. Also, decorate your house/apartment to make it feel festive.
5. Card/Gift Exchange
Remember when you were younger and everyone brought a Valentine for the class? Well, throw a grown up version. Have everyone bring a shoebox and a gift or cute card to share with the group. Spend the first part decorating your shoe box and then you can all share what you brought!
6. Photo Shoot
This Galentine’s Day idea is such a fun one! Schedule a photoshoot to go take pictures with all your girls. Taking the pics will be fun and you’ll have it all documented to remember forever!
Painting can be done at home or at a studio! Set up your own painting night with food and drinks or go to a paint and sip near you and create a masterpiece.
Grab the popcorn and go see a good chick flick or a movie with a string female lead! This is an easy Galentine’s Day idea thats sure to be a good time. You can even grab dinner before or after if you want to make a night of it!
Finding a concert on the 13th might be a tough task but plan to celebrate Galentine’s Day at whatever concert you might want to attend around that time. Spend the night celebrating your gals by singing your heart out with all of your best friends.
10. Take a Trip
Why not make Galentine’s Day a whole weekend? If you’re really committed then this Galentine’s day idea is for you. Find someplace thats an easy weekend getaway, gather your girls, and hit the road.
