You may have heard of Galentine’s Day, which is a play off of Valentine’s Day except you get to spend the day with your best friends. Honestly, I couldn’t think of a better way to spend February 14th. So, I decided to create a list of cute, inexpensive gifts you can give to your besties in honor of this day.
I created a theme with little gifts that you can put in a makeup bag. The bag I chose from Forever 21 is only $6! I added small things like themed earrings, a face mask, a small candle and some lip balm. It’s the perfect way to gift all these items to your friends. The entire gift itself is less than $35 dollars. Of course, you can opt for one or two of the gifts if you have a large friend group!
So, I’m sure you’re wondering how you should celebrate Galentine’s Day with your friends. Here are some of my favorite ways to spend a girl’s night in on February 14th!
Go all out and treat yourself to a pamper session. Whether you buy face masks or look up DIY recipes to make yourself, you’ll appreciate the much needed TLC. Make sure you have plenty of nail polish and essential oils to share with your friends!
Wine & Chick Flicks:
What better way to spend time with your friends than bottles of wine and line up of hilarious movies (I always recommend Bridesmaids and 27 Dresses.) Or, you can create your own cocktails for the night as well! I’m definitely interested in this Sweet Strawberry Sangria!
Order Food In:
Instead of going out for sushi, have the sushi come to you! For those who don’t know, sushi is one of my favorite foods to eat—plus, it won’t be heavy meal like pizza or Chinese food. You can also opt to make your own sushi at home if you have the tools and ingredients to do it!
If there’s an opportunity to get creative, I’m always on board. You and your friends can search Pinterest for DIY projects to do at home. I’m personally loving the idea of this coffee mug or this heart wall decor! Choose projects that are simple and inexpensive so you don’t break the bank.
If you and your friends have a sweet tooth, you’ll love a baking party. Each friend brings ingredients and a recipe for a different dessert, and you all make them. After, everyone gets a little of each dessert to bring home! Need some inspiration? Try this Champagne & Raspberry Cupcakes recipe.
Some of the best memories I have are when my friends and I get together to play Cards Against Humanity or Scattergories. Go old school by bringing out some of your favorite games. You won’t believe how much fun you’ll have—it’s the little things in life!
