With February 14th rapidly approaching, it’s important to remember that you do not need a relationship in order to enjoy Valentine’s Day. The season of love provides an excellent opportunity to celebrate a different kind of love: the love you have for your incredible friends. Organize a Galentine’s Day get-together to spend time with your best friends and show how much you appreciate each other. Here’s 14 Galentine’s day ideas for you and your best friends.
1. Movie Marathon
Get a bunch of movies; any genre you like. You can pay tribute to V-Day by going the RomCom route, or rebel against the standards of the holiday and go for something like horror or action. Whatever you and your girlfriends want! Set out blankets and pillows so everyone can get super comfy and settle in for the evening. Don’t forget, no movie night is complete without popcorn!
2. Beach Day
If you live by the coast, take your girls out for a day in the sun. Wear your cutest bathing suits and don’t forget your sunglasses. Bring a portable speaker so you jam to your favorite tunes together! Definitely one of the best Galentine’s day ideas!
3. Go Out To Dinner
Who says that going out to dinner is only for date nights? Hit your favorite restaurant with your ladies and spend the night talking, laughing, enjoying each other’s company, and eating good food.
4. Cook Together
As an alternative to going out to eat, opt to stay in and make a meal together. Cooking with friends and then enjoying the food that you’ve made is a recipe for a good time. Set fresh flowers on the table and create a pretty place setting for an aesthetically pleasing dining experience.
5. Baking Party
Have everyone come prepared with their best recipes and baking supplies. This is a good time to try out those cool Pinterest recipes you have saved. Baking together is a fun activity with a tasty end result! Enjoy trying each others delicious creations.
6. Spa Day
Treat yo’selves because this is one of the best Galentine’s day ideas. Paint each others nails, do face masks, give yourselves the TLC that you deserve. No doubt that you all will ending up feeling amazing and refreshed.
7. DIY Crafts
For those who are crafty and creative, host a DIY party. You can trade your creations at the end, give them as gifts, or save them for yourselves. Hit up Pinterest for ideas on unique crafts to make.
8. Get Manicures Together
Make appointments for all of you to get your nails done together. Getting a fresh manicure is such a treat, and what’s more luxurious than getting pampered with your best friends by your side?
9. Slumber Party
Get your friends together for a good old-fashioned slumber party. Everyone can wear their comfiest pajamas, and you can watch your favorite shows, play hilarious games, like Cards Against Humanity, and tell funny stories. Bonus points if you build a pillow fort. Make sure to have lots of snacks on hand. Ice cream, pizza, cookies, and chips, are slumber party staples, and you can add any snacks that you and your friends like.
There’s nothing like getting together with your friends and going on a shopping trip. Head to your nearby mall and hit up all your favorite stores. Whether you decide to splurge and buy that sweater that you’ve had your eye on, or you stick to window shopping, you’re sure to have a blast spending the day with your best friends.
11. Have a Potluck Picnic
Have each person bring one dish and take them to a local park for a picnic. Potlucks are a great way to have a stress-free meal together, as it equally distributes the work. This is a fun way to try all of your friends’ favorite recipes, as well as spend time outdoors.
Brunch is a classic Galentine’s Day event. Spend quality time with your girlfriends over fancy waffles and bougie avocado toast. Ladies who brunch together stay together!
13. Road Trip
There’s nothing like getting away for a few days, especially if it’s with your friends. Plan a trip for you all to escape the outside world for a little while, relax, and have a good time in each other’s company.
14. Coffee Date
Coffee shops were made for spending quality time with friends. The chill vibe is the perfect atmosphere for good conversations. Head to a cute coffee shop to talk and hang out with your best friends while sipping lattes.
