Sure, Valentine’s Day is a great way to show a significant other that you love them, but you know what’s just as fun? Showing your girlfriends how much you care. Be the hostess with the most this Galentine’s Day. Use these tips to host an evening to love and cherish your best pals.
Take A Class Together
For a fun night of learning something new, take a class in calligraphy, painting, ceramics, cooking, or floral arrangement. Or, be bold and daring and learn to skydive or bungee jump! Learning something new together is a great way to practice holistic self-care and bond with your friends.
Plan A Weekend Getaway
The holidays are over and it’s been cold for months, why not plan a sunshine-filled girls trip? If the beach isn’t close enough, rent a cabin in the mountains and cozy up with fires, s’mores, good books, and your favorite nostalgic movies.
Get Your Fitness On
Gather up your best gals and have an instructor come over for a private lesson in yoga, pilates, or a HIIT class. Or, take your group to a spin or barre class at your favorite fitness studio and grab brunch afterward!
Have A Bake-Off
Baking relieves stress and increases happiness, plus, you’ll get to eat a bunch of yummy treats at the end! Spend an afternoon in the kitchen to see who will be crowned the winner of the Great Galentine’s Bake-Off!
Have A Viewing Party Or Book Club
Whether you decide to embrace the cheesiness of Valentine’s with a full-on rom-com marathon or romance novel discussion or watch the latest true crime docu-series on Netflix, spend the evening catching up over a good book or movie.
Get Your DIY On
An arts-and-crafts table is a great way to keep everyone entertained throughout the party. They’ll have something hands-on to do and something to take home after the party. Win-win!
