Galentine’s Day has officially become a household holiday with events happening everywhere to celebrate with your gal pal. What is Galentine’s Day you ask? Well, it started as a fiction dating back to 2010 on an episode of Parks and Recreation. The character Leslie wanted to celebrate the joys of female friendship, so she set Galentine’s Day as a festival that would fall, each year, on February 13: Valentine’s Day eve and now the rest is history. It has been a tradition of mine in the last few years, to celebrate friendships and I really enjoy doing so. Whether you celebrate with you BFF or your girl gang, I put together 5 fun ways to celebrate Galentine’s Day.
Go see a movie
Go see a good chick flick with your girlfriends. If you want to save money and time, have your girls bring over their favorite movie or you guys can make it a Netflix and chill night for ladies. There are always great movies that are released in February. I plan to go see ” The Photograph” which is a cute little love story featuring Issa Rae.
Treat yourself to something nice
Remember that cute dress you’ve been eyeing all week? Treat yourself to it and you can even encourage your gal pal to grab her one as well. I have been eyeing this pink Dior bag for a few months, I think Galentine’s Day will be the perfect time to purchase it.
Have a spa day
What better way to spend Galentine’s Day than with a nice relaxing spa treat. Try and good facial or even a mani, pedi. You can even book and couples massage, nobody has to know *wink.
Have a Galentine exchange with your girlfriends.
Put everyones name in a hat and draw names. Get your person chocolates, roses or even a nice bottle of wine. You can even have them delivered to their job as an added bonus.
Have an Anti-Valentine’s Day
Remember the movie “Valentine’s Day” when Jessica Biel’s character throw an Anti-Valentine’s Day party? Dress in all black, make a dinner reservation with girls and take shots with the girls. Make it a fun night!
