Celebrating “Galentine’s Day” with your Best Friends

Ever heard of Galentine’s Day? This day is very similar to Valentine’s Day, only with a slightly different theme. While Valentine’s is for lovers, Galentine’s is for celebrating platonic friendship, especially among the female folk.

How do you plan to celebrate Galentine’s Day this year? This post will show you some exciting ideas you can try out with your best friends this year.

What is Galentine’s Day?

Before we look at the ideas, let’s briefly explain what Galentine’s Day is. Galentine’s Day holds on February 13, just before Valentine's. Many people don’t consider it fun, but it can be even more fun than the day we celebrate romantic love.

On this day, females get to spend time with their female friends and express platonic love. There is no hard and fast rule to celebrating this day. It all depends on how creative you are and how much fun you want to have.

Ideas to Celebrate Galentine’s Day with your Best Friends

Now that you know what this day means, you are probably wondering how you will celebrate with your best friends. The good news is that there are tons of ideas you can tweak to enjoy the most amazing fun time of the year. Here are a few Galentine’s Day ideas you can consider:

Plan a staycation

Plan a staycation

As a nurse, you hardly have time to unwind throughout the year. However, you can seize the opportunity of Galentine to spend time with your besties. One way to do this is to plan a staycation. Reserve a room at one of the choice hotels in town where you and your friends can spend the whole day, and maybe at night. You all can get to lounge in fancy robes, order room service, and enjoy so much fun.

Get pampered

When last did you and your best friends get pampered? Galentine is a time of the year when you can spoil yourselves. Book a session at the spa, go with your friends to get a massage, have a manicure and pedicure session, and so on. There are too many ways you can pamper yourselves on this special day.

Movie night

Seeing movies is one of the best ways to relax. Pick a movie that you and your besties love or have been looking forward to seeing. You can either go to the cinema to see the movie or set up at one of your homes to watch a couple. While at it, you can enjoy some barbecue, drinks, and pizza.

DIY party

Spend some time in a DIY party with your friend

Who says you need to break the bank to organize a party? You and your friends can organize a DIY party at one of your homes. Simply decide on the theme and split the bill so that everyone gets to bring something to the table. Spend a few hours partying with them and catching up, especially if you haven’t seen each other in ages.

Game night

Finally, if you and your friends enjoy playing games, you can consider organizing a game night. Choose a set of games that you all love, it could be an old-school arcade, chess, poker, or a recent online game. Whatever you choose, ensure that everyone is on the same page so that you can all have maximum fun.
