It’s that time of the year again—Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! Although it is a big holiday for couples, it can also be a fun day to celebrate with your friends. I’ve been having Galentine’s Day celebrations with friends for a couple of years now, and it’s always fun to spend time with your gal pals and spread the love! If you are in need of ideas for some Galentine’s Day festivities, look no further.
- Go out to dinner together! This is a classic, and it truly never gets old. You can go to a restaurant, dress up a little bit with your friends, and spend the evening chatting while enjoying your meal. I went out to dinner for Galentine’s Day last year with a larger group of friends, and we all had a great time together. Especially since our schedules didn’t always line up we didn’t get to see each other often, so it was nice to have a day to all be together!
- Spend some time at the beach or a nice place outside during the day! Depending on where you are and what the weather is like this time of the year, there are a lot of places where you can go to spend Galentine’s Day with your friends. Whether it be a shopping spree at the mall, a day at the beach with a charcuterie board, or a morning taking cute pictures at a cafe, the choices are endless!
- Have a potluck! This year, my friends and I are deciding to stay in and celebrate at one of our apartments. For the potluck, we created a list that assigned each person a food or decoration to bring. I feel like this is a nice, homey option for Galentine’s Day that truly captures the spirit of cherishing the time you spend with those you love and care about.
These are just a few ways that you can enjoy this holiday with your best gal pals, and feel free to do a combination of some or all of these! With that being said, Happy Galentine’s Day!
