St. Valentine’s Day is all about love, right? Well, who do you love more than your best friends? Instead of only thinking about boys this year, why not spend some time focusing on your girls and make this the best Galentine’s Day yet!
We’ve got some super sweet ideas that will show your friends just how much you care. And like always, planning, prepping and giving can be more fun than getting. Below we give you a bunch of fun ways to celebrate your Galentine’s Day and just how to make them happen.
Girls only party
Invite your bffs over for a super fun girls-only night, starting with a little something to eat and ending with a good old-fashioned slumber party. Do breakfast for dinner with heart shaped pancakes (use cookie cutters to “cut” out the shapes). And add festively red toppings like strawberries or colored sugar. Download an classic chick flick like High School Musical, one of the Pitch Perfect films or 13 Going on 30. Serve pink frosted cupcakes, pink lemonade and some mini chocolate hearts. Then cozy up in your favorite sleeping bags at bedtime. Perfect girls’ night in.
Give your gal pals a little something to celebrate the day. The best–and least expensive way–is when you make the gifts yourself. It’s so fun and easy to do. We like heart or lip shaped soaps that are easy to make with just a few ingredients, bath balms or facials, friendship bracelets or eye masks you’ve dolled up yourself.
A few words
Sometimes the best gift of all is just a note to let your bffs know how much they mean to you. Take a pretty pieces of stationery or decorate a plain piece of paper yourself and either write a note straight from your heart or with some fun, festive and meaningful phrases sprinkled all over the page. We are thinking of phrases like girl time, best friends, love you, secrets, laughing, shopping, sleepovers, sweet times, all-nighters, sharing, caring…and more!
Just remember, no matter what you plan or do, that your Galentine’s Day can be the sweetest day of the year!
