First thing’s first, what is Galentine’s day? Observed on February 13, the day before Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day celebrates platonic friendships. There are so many epic ways that you can celebrate, but the only truly important thing is that you and your vinas have a fabulous day. Here are five ways to get your creative side rolling for some fun, VINA-tines dates!
Massages, pedicures, manicures, face masks: You can have it all! If you can’t afford to go to your local spa or salon, then make your own spa day at a friend’s house.
SHOP TILL YOU DROP
Grab your favorite gal pals and go on an endless shopping spree to your favorite mall. Buy yourself or your friends something you wouldn’t normally buy, such as clothes, gadgets or any random trinkets that may catch your eye this holiday. We dedicate this day to girl power. Even though Treat Yo Self falls on October 13th, use this Galentine’s day to think about yourself and your girls for once. You can never go wrong with treating yourself to chocolates. Or, you can always wait until the day after Valentine’s Day for some discounts.
If new movies come out that your friends might want to see, a movie night can always act as a relaxing way to spend Galentine’s Day. You and the girls can always make it a wine night as well by buying a box of wine…. or five. (Only if you’re of legal drinking age please.)
WINE AND DINE
Invite your vinas over, choose a recipe that you’ve been dying to try and enjoy some quality wine with your vinas as you cook together. Combine it with a movie or two and some face masks. Voila, the perfect night in with your best vinas. What could be better?
Why not give a gift to show your appreciation for your best friends? It doesn’t need to cost you an arm and a leg to give the most meaningful gifts to your friends. Forget the roses (but not the chocolate) and get some gifts that might serve more purpose this year. You won’t believe the look on your bestie’s face when she unwraps a framed copy of her favorite photo of you two with a heartfelt note taped to the back.
