Ladies, it's time to break out the bubbly and celebrate the most important holiday of the year: Galentine's Day! This day, dedicated to celebrating the bond between best friends, is the perfect excuse to gather your girls, indulge in some good food, and show your appreciation for each other. Here are some fun activities and gift ideas to make this Galentine's Day one for the books.
Have a DIY spa day: Gather all the face masks, nail polish, and bubble baths you can find and have a DIY spa day in your own home. This is the perfect opportunity to catch up, relax, and treat yourselves.
Binge-watch your favorite show: Get cozy on the couch with your besties and binge-watch your favorite show. Whether it's "Friends" or "The Office," you're sure to have a good time. Bonus points if you make a themed snack, like Central Perk coffee or Dundies.
Have a cooking competition: Put your culinary skills to the test and have a cooking competition. Assign each person a dish to make, set a timer, and let the cook-off begin. The winner gets to choose the next Netflix show to binge-watch.
Play games: Break out the board games, card games, or video games and have a game night. Whether you're playing Monopoly, poker, or Mario Kart, you're sure to have a blast.
And, if you were thinking of something along the lines of gift ideas, I have you covered, too:
Customized jewelry: Show your bestie how much she means to you with a customized piece of jewelry. Get her initials engraved on a necklace or bracelet, or choose a charm that represents a special memory between you two.
A subscription box: Give the gift of monthly surprises with a subscription box. Whether it's a beauty box, snack box, or book box, your bestie is sure to love it.
A personalized photo album: Put together a photo album filled with memories of you and your bestie. This is a thoughtful and sentimental gift that she'll cherish for years to come.
A funny mug: Give your bestie a laugh with a funny mug. Whether it's a sarcastic quote or a silly picture, she'll be sure to smile every time she uses it.
No matter what activities or gifts you choose, the most important thing is spending time with your besties and celebrating your bond. Happy Galentine's Day!
