Where did Galentine’s Day Come From?
According to Urban Dictionary, Galentine’s Day falls the day before Valentine’s Day (February 13th).
Where you celebrate with your lady friends. Either they are single or even in a relationship. This day is for all my ladies out there!
The idea of Galentine’s Day was also brought up in 2010 from a show called Parks and Recreation. Which now has been a staple for some women today.
I love the idea of having a day just to celebrate your friendship with your girl squad!
How to Host The Best Galentine’s Day
In order to host the best galentine’s day for you and your friend group, here are a few things you have to do;
1. Create A Guestlist
Do you want your Galentine’s Day party to be small or big? Create a guest list of all the girlfriends you have in your life. This can also include your siblings, in-laws, and cousins.
Remember to not make anyone feel left out on purpose. Even if you think they’ll say no, still send an invitation.
2. Come up with a Menu
When playing a Galentine’s day, some people may ask “What food is eat on on Galentine’s Day?”
Honestly.. Basically anything. You can get the food catered, have someone come in to cook the food (we’ll speak on that later on.) Or have a potluck where each person brings a dish.
This will all depend on the theme and activity you choose, which goes to my next point…
3. Prepare a Theme and Activities
This is always the fun part. Preparing what you and your girls are going to be doing. This could be something outside of the house or an activity that can be hosted right inside your home.
If you want to go the extra mile you can come up with a theme that both you and your guestlist have to follow. This could include dress code, items that they bring, and so much more.
Down below are some great Galentine’s day Ideas For you and your ladies to enjoy!
12 Galentine’s Day Ideas To Try Out!
1) Having a Wine Tasting
Wine tours charge a lot of money just to sit down for a few hours get tipsy then go home. Why not have a wine tasting in the comfort of your home?
Buy a bunch of wine, grab some wine glasses, create a cheese board, and have the girls come over! You can place the dress code. It could be Pj’s theme or wear something casual.
Look on Pinterest for some creative Cheese boards you can try!
Not only is this for couples but also for friends. If you’re unable to go out to a paint night, have it at home. You can have the girls come on over or you can do it via zoom.
Find a video on YouTube that covers DIY paint nights. Similar to this Paint and Sip video.
You can buy all the supplies at your local art store or even the dollar store near you!
3) Mixology Class
If you and your girls know some cocktails, why not share them? Each person creates a cocktail and bring them the party!
Each cocktail can have a theme that goes along with a snack.
Another thing you can do Is all attend a mixology class. A mixology class will teach you how to make cocktails for you and your girls to enjoy.
4) Game Night
For This Galentine’s day, have some fun at home and have a Games night! I have found the best times and laughed so hard at game nights.
Have each person bring a board/card game to the party and have fun!
5) Spa Day
We ladies need a break! If you and your girls want to unwind and take a break. Go and have a spa day!
This Galentine’s day idea is great for the women who need time to relax. Some spas offer group manicures and pedicures to be done together.
Want to bring the spa treatment to your home? I have seen all over instagram mobile spas that will come to your house and do your manicures and pedicures for you.
6) Beach Day
If you live in a warmer climate why not take a trip to the beach? Pack some sunscreen, a lunch, and enjoy some time with your girls.
Used this Galentine’s day activity to take some instagram pictures and have a fun day in the sand.
7) Go For Brunch
Who can’t say no to brunch and bottomless Mimosas. Get dress, and hit the streets with your friends and have brunch!
If you are looking for an alternative, have everyone bring a breakfast dish or even cook together! This is a great time for your and your girls to bond this Galentine’s day.
8) Slumber Party
You’re never too old to have a sleepover with your friends. Purchase some snacks, plan out some slumber party activities and spend some quality time with your girls.
If you wanted to make this slumber party special? Why not create some goodies bags. You can include; matching pajamas, face mask, mini bottle of wine, nail polish, and so much more!
This adult slumber party will be way better than the ones when you were 12.
9) Wine Tour
Something I always wanted to do with my group of friends. Go on a wine tasting tour.
Depending on the packages you find, it will include; a meal, the wines you are trying, and transportation to each winery.
Some tours cost between $60-$120 depending on whats included.
This is a great Galentine’s day idea for you and your friends to make fun (and tipsy) memories.
10) Weekend Getaway
This idea will need some advance planning. If it’s a drive away then it could be planed in a month. Although if you need to take a plane to the location, it’s best you give everyone up to 3 months to plan.
Planning a weekend getaway with your girls can be the best Galentine’s day idea. A way to take a break from the everyday rush and just catch up.
Want to know how to plan a Galentine’s weekend getaway, here are a few things you need to know;
- Location of the getaway
- Resturants and food
After figuring it all out. It’s time to come up with a cost that everyone is able to attain to.
Want to cut down on some cost? Book an airbnb! You can cook some meals, and plus airbnb’s are much more affordable to stay at versus a hotel.
11) High Tea Party
Want to try something new? Dress up in your finest clothes and attend a high tea party.
This activity is great for people who want a calm atmosphere and love the finer things in life.
Some high tea parties offer a package for groups larger than 5. Some high tea party locations will catered the food and drinks for a small fee.
12) Pole Dancing Classes
Pole dancing class is a great workout for you and your girls to do. A Pole dancing class will help you gain confidence, strength, and also have a good laugh.
Some locations will allow you to book a private lesson with one of their instructors. Which will be less nerve racking for your friends knowing it’ll just be you gals.
After your pole dancing class you and your girls can go grab lunch!
