Sure, I get that Valentines day is all about romance, but can we talk about some of the most important loves in our lives AKA our BFFs? Who else is always going to have your back, understand when you DM them ridiculous Instagrams, and, let’s be real, listen to you complain about your on-again, off-again, uh, friend.

What is Galentine’s Day. Let me explain.
Galentine’s is the day to get all your girlfriends together, have fun, share the love and reflect on your achievements. Your girlfriends are there for you through thick and thin, so why wouldn’t you want to show them the appreciation they desire. In my opinion, this day should be marked on your calendars every year. Haha! Yes, romance is great, but I welcome any chance I get to have girl time and to have a girlie party. 😉

10 Galentine’s Day Ideas
If you’re looking for a unique way to spend Galentine’s Day, I have 10 ideas to give you inspiration for this unique day.
Either visit a spa or host a spa day at your house. Face masks and cucumber water will leave your gal pass relaxed and rejuvenated.
If you live in a warmer climate, try spending this special day in February at the beach. Bring along a picnic to snack on.
Plan a road trip with a few friends to celebrate Galentine’s Day. Create a playlist of all your favorite tunes that you can sing along to while en route.
Plan a day in the great outdoors for you and your friends. Find a local hike with a view and spend the day climbing to the top.
Breakfast Food Binge
Visit your favorite diner or breakfast place and order a little bit of everything. This way everyone can try a little bit of everything and you can discuss which dish is the best.
Celebrate Galentine’s Day with a mimosa brunch. Pair a DIY Non-Alcoholic mimosa bar with finger foods like quiche or muffins.
Host a karaoke celebration this Galentine’s Day. Invite everyone over to live out their rockstar dreams. Take the party to the next level with fun wigs and costumes.
Do you admire your BFF’s style? Plan a clothing swap where people can bring items from their wardrobe and swap them for something new.
Host a movie marathon. Pick a movie genre or a television series and play the shows back-to-back. To truly get in the spirit, start by watching the Galentine’s Day Parks and Recreation episode.
Shopping is always more fun when you’re with friends. Spend the afternoon at the mall, in search of a stylish new outfit.
And what’s a party without gifts?!? To help celebrate these amazing ladies, I’ve compiled a few gifts they will love you for (pun intended) — and don’t forget…..no boys allowed.
