We’ve been celebrating our Friendaversay since long before Leslie Knope declared Galentine’s Day a thing, but we’re certainly not the kind of people to decline another reason to celebrate each other, as well as the many other wonderful ladies in our lives! February 13 is fast approaching and, some may say an even more important holiday than the one the day after it. It’s not always the norm to let our closest friends know that they’re loved and appreciated every day of the year, so here are some of our favorite ideas for gal-pal-ing around for the upcoming holiday!
Pull An Olivia Pope
Nothing says love like cozying up with your bestie, 2 glasses of your favorite wine (full pours, please), some freshly popped popcorn and your favorite episode of Scandal. This is definitely on our go-to list of friend date nights, and we only have the White Hat Wearer herself to thank!
Take a Hike, Ride Some Bikes, or Lay Down Your Mat
Show your bestie what’s up by getting moving! We love getting good and sweaty on friend dates. Can we suggest a sunset hike for your Galentine’s Day festivities? Or perhaps a leisurely bike ride to your favorite pizza or ice cream shop? Too cold for outside activities where you are? Meet up with your favorite gal pal to take a class together, whether it’s spin, yoga, or kick boxing!
Host a Spa Night
Get Crafty and DIY Some Stuff
Hosting a crafting party is sure to inspire your best gal-pals.
You can even make the refreshments craft inspired. Check out these adorable snacks that Shaveh made for her daughter’s birthday.
Skype Your Long Distance Besties
Are you and your besties separated by many states or miles or more? Fret not, for we live in the future! Galentine’s Day can still be extra special and extra celebrated even from afar! Our favorite Skype tactic is to get multiple time zones involved! Someone might be having a breakfast mimosa to celebrate while another friend is toasting alongside their dinner. Whatever time it is, making time for far-away friends is a great way to show them you’re thinking of them!
