Who said Valentine’s Day is just for lovers? Get your gals together and plan your next ‘Galentine’s’.
Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to honour the love in your life. And it’s not just romantic relationships that deserve to be celebrated, but forever friendships too! If you’re keen to show your besties how much you care on the 14th of February, what better way than organising a fun-filled Galentine’s event?
There are plenty of ways you can celebrate, whether you’d like to stay in or head out on the town. Here are six ideas on how to spend Galentine’s with your favourite friends.
- Bottomless brunch
Glass of fizz? Check. Delicious dishes? Check. Top-quality chat? Check. What more could you want on a fun day out with your besties?
Bottomless brunch is always going to be a hit with your gal pals, so this is a great option for celebrating your friendship this Valentine’s Day.
Why not head to a local karaoke bar to belt out classics with your besties? Pick a song you all love to bring the good vibes, whether that’s a track from your childhood or one you always play together before hitting the town.
It’s also a great excuse to get dolled up in pretty evening dresses and heels. You could all get ready together at your place with some great music to get in the spirit!
- Trivia night
If making melodies isn’t your thing, you could head to a trivia night with your friends. Come up with a funny team name and put your thinking caps on to answer questions in the hope of winning a prize (or at least pride).
Choose a good pub quiz near you with a range of rounds, like music, general knowledge, and pictures.
- Secret swap
If you like the idea of getting your best pals a prezzie this Valentine’s, you could do a secret swap. Think Secret Santa but Galentine’s themed – where you set a budget for the group and head out to get fun and/or thoughtful prezzies for each other.
You could set a theme, such as heart-shaped items or anything red and pink, and let your imaginations go wild. Glamour put together a useful list of great Galentine’s gifts you can check out for inspiration.
- Cocktail night
Another great option is to host a fun-filled cocktail night at your place. Ask each person to bring their tipple of choice or make a cocktail that best suits their personality.
Once you’ve got your cocktails in hand, you could simply have a natter, enjoy a girlie movie, or paint pottery while you sip.
- Bake off
Are you and your friends fans of the Great British Bake Off? Then you could organise a bake-off-themed event, where you all get together to take on a challenge in the kitchen.
You could bake cookies or cupcakes and have a decoration contest using a range of coloured icing, sprays, and any other edible items.
Whatever you choose, you and your friends are sure to enjoy celebrating this Galentine’s. We hope you have the best time!
