A Case for Celebrating Your Gal Pal’s on Valentine’s Day
When we think of Valentine’s Day we tend to focus on romantic partners, but as a holiday meant to celebrate love and affection its reach extends far beyond just honouring our significant others.
This Valentine’s Day, consider taking the time to celebrate the friendships that are there for us through thick & thin— your gal pals!
All too often we get caught up in our crazy busy lives and months go by without connecting. What better way to say thanks for being with me through it all than hosting a girl’s night on a holiday celebrating connection and affection?
Here’s some fun ways to mark the occasion with your gal pals and remind us all that celebrating love isn’t just for lovers. Fair warning though, these may make your coupled friends just a little jealous.
Champagne & Fondue Night
Dress to the nines or party in your pj’s. Crack open the bubbly and sip away while you watch a favourite rom-com (our suggestions: My Best Friend’s Wedding or Leap Year) and indulge in bite-sized pieces of cheesy goodness. The recipe for a perfect night-in if you ask us.
Murder Mystery Dinner
Channel your inner Hitchock and host a murder mystery dinner night. Give each friend a part that involves dressing up. Take lots of pictures and make sure to document it all on Instagram! #GalentinesDayMurderMystery
Martini & Magazine Night
Break out the olives and bring out the magazines, what better excuse for a chill, relaxing night than a day of celebrating you and your favourite ladies. Bonus points if you break out the old photo albums and reminisce on all your fashion favourites (and faux-pas) of the past!
Have a great hotel nearby or know of a great AirBNB? Plan a weekend getaway and hang out at the pool, get a massage, or enjoy happy hour with appetizers followed by a night on the town. No Galentine’s Day is complete without a little pampering!
Just a couple of you? Soulful gal pals in warmer climates will love the idea of grabbing food from a favorite haunt and heading out to the beach to walk and talk.
Galentine’s Day Gift Exchange
Nothing says “I love my friends” like a BFF Valentine’s Day gift exchange. Treat your girlfriends to something they may not buy for themselves -- a bold nail polish, fun sunglasses or a small box of handmade chocolates.
