Coined by Leslie Knope from Parks & Recreation, Galentine’s Day is “only the best day of the year.”
This Galentine's Day 2017, show your girlfriends how much you care. Regardless of whether you're taken or single, be sure to plan a pre-Valentine’s Day soirée celebrating friendships with your best gals.
We've gathered some Galentine’s Day ideas that your besties will surely love.
Brunch and Spa Date
Gather your girls and start your morning with a delicious brunch and bottomless mimosas! Aim for a brunch spot that offers nice outdoor patio seating for the best ambiance — we love places like Fig & Olive, with locations from New York City to West Hollywood. Afterwards, spend the day pampering yourself with a spa mani and pedi at the nearest salon. You gals deserve it.
Have a girls night (in)
Not a huge fan of crowded restaurants and pre-fix menus? Host a potluck or wine and cheese night and create your own Galentine's Day party at home! It’s your night, so you decide on the fun details. Feeling high school nostalgia? Turn up the speakers with your favorite R&B slow jams and make it an epic dance party. Feeling crafty? Deck out your space with red confetti, heart-shaped balloons and personalized pretty pink cards for a glam and girly setting. Remember: It’s all about ladies celebrating ladies.
Send a surprise gift
Let's be honest, we're all still old-fashion lovers of hand-written messages and mail packages. If distance is what's keeping you ladies apart for Galentine's Day, surprise your bestie with a Bijou candle in her favorite scent or send a care package that includes all of her favorite things. She’ll feel the love from afar.
Try something new together
Find an activity that you and your girls have never done together before. Plan a day trip and hit the slopes — and make sure they have a fondue spot nearby. Take a group cooking class or a paint class — where they serve up wine. Planning is half the fun.
