As we enter a seemingly tumultuous time for the world at large, we have never been so proud to belong to a country where compassion and love are the guiding principles. Valentine’s Day is all about sharing the love, meaning all kinds of love. This Valentine’s day, we’ll be celebrating friendship, and encourage you to do the same! So, let’s make this Valentine’s Day FTL (for the ladies) and celebrate GALENTINE’S Day! Even if you have a significant other waiting at home with some chocolates, don’t forget to show your girlfriends some love this year. Surprise your bestie with a gorgeous personalized gift or a fun night out on the town together, instead of a solo night in with your sub-par pals Netflix, Ben and Jerry. Or perhaps you want to join her, Ben and Jerry for a movie night marathon. It’s whatever floats your boat, so long as you are together and feeling the love! Here are a few fun ideas to get you started on planning the ultimate Galentine’s Day event!
Girl’s Night Out:
Dinner Out on the Town
Been meaning to check out that hot new restaurant? Treat yourself. No hot date? Nonsense, take your bestie(s). Just be sure to book in advance- those tables book up fast!
DANCE DANCE DANCE!
No- there is no such thing as being “too old.” No matter your age, hitting the dance floor with your best girls and letting loose once and a while is the best form of therapy. If you’re worried about feeling a little, um, “dated”…. Do some research first and choose a spot that caters to your demographic.
This hot new trend is an awesome way to have a fun night out, while expressing your artistic side. They offer both guided classes and free form, so the world is your oyster! It’s fun to see what you and your friends come up with, and a great way to spend quality time while simultaneously creating something meaningful. Oh, and did we mention they are licensed? Nothing like a little vino to get you’re your creative juices (and gossip) flowing. https://www.paintnite.com/
Girl’s Night In:
Netflix and Chill
Sounds basic, but there are ways to spice up this otherwise normal evening. First, find some common ground on what types of movies you all love. Once you’ve agreed, you can either select a variety of films or a series with multiple sequels to ensure maximum marathon potential. Equally as important- the snack choice. Go crazy, treat yourselves- one night won’t kill you. Sleepover and sugar-hangover included. Games Night
Want a little more action than a movie marathon? Break out the games! Whether you’re into board games like monopoly, or more interactive ones like twister, cards against humanity or charades, get the laughter and competitive spirit flowing on Galentine’s day. Adult Slumber Party
Remember those middle-school sleepovers with makeovers, facial masks and mani-pedis? Host a “13 going on 30” themed throwback sleepover with several of your best gals, and include all-of-the-above! What better way to spend Galentine’s day? You can even incorporate gift exchange with fun Valentines’ Day themed gifts like our personalized notepads, notecards and sticky notes
We hope these ideas have inspired you to celebrate friendship and treat yourself to a fun Galentine’s day with your best friends this year!
