4 ways to pamper yourself this Galentine’s Day.
If you and your girlfriends haven’t hopped on the Galentine’s Day train yet, you are seriously missing out. What is Galentine’s Day, you may be wondering? February 13th, one day before Valentine’s Day, is all about celebrating your love for your favorite gal pals.
Galentine’s Day originated from the beloved character Leslie Knope of ‘Parks and Recreation.” Leslie is well known for her top-notch gift giving abilities and over-the-top love and adoration for her lady friends. Thanks to this sweet show, ladies all over the globe are getting creative and creating their own Galentine’s Day traditions.
If you don’t have a special someone this year, don’t have Valentine’s Day plans, or just want to show your girlfriends just how much you care, you should consider starting a Galentine’s Day tradition of your own. If you’re not sure where to start, we have a few fun ideas.
1. Kick it Parks & Rec style, and throw a Galentine’s Day brunch. Leslie Knope says it best: “Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst, plus frittatas.”
2. Go old fashioned and grab dinner and a movie. Don’t have a date this year, but you want to grab some grub and catch up on the latest rom-com? Take your bestie!
3. Throw an Anti-Valentine’s Day game night. Feeling a little salty over your singleness? Throw some darts at an old picture of your desk or retell cringey stories of your worst date nights over a bottle of wine.
4. Raid each other’s closets and go out for a night on the town. If you’re ballin’ on a budget, pick out your favorite LBD from your best friend’s closet and show all the guys out there just what they’re missing.
No matter what you decide, you’re sure to have the best Galentine’s Day ever with your friends by your side.
