Galentine’s Day is celebrated annually on February 13th, the day before Valentine’s Day. This day celebrates non-romantic love such as that between friends and family. There are many ways you can celebrate Galentine’s Day without breaking the bank. Let’s explore some ways you can celebrate Galentine’s Day with your friends and family.
Galentine’s Day Ideas
BFF Movie Night
Invite your friends over for an at-home movie night. Everyone can bring a plate or a bottle to share, or you can offer to serve simple appetizers. Reserve dessert for the movie and have the popcorn handy. Consider starting off movie night with a heart-throb action hero movie, then settle down for a tear-jerker to end the night.
Chocolate and Wine Night
On such evenings, dinner and movies are optional. Depending on the weather, you can treat your guests to chocolate and wine night outside around a fire pit. Add some flair to the party by playing your group’s favorite music in the background. You might even consider seeing who remembers how to dance the Macarena or learning one of the latest TikTok dances.
Combine wine and chocolate night with karaoke. This can be a fun way to find out which one of your friends has been hiding their vocal talents. Be sure to tip off the neighbors before the howling starts. If you don’t have karaoke equipment, you can ask guests to chip in and help cover the equipment rental costs.
Not all games have to involve drinking. However, Paint and Sip can be hysterical. The longer the game goes on, the more bizarre and funnier the pictures become. Pictionary is another great game to play with friends and family, however, you need to have a least four people.
Attend a dance class or pay for a dance instructor to come over. The more people the merrier. This should include dancing in stilettoes with partners. For a big group, try a line dancing class. Singles can invite a date. What a perfect way to celebrate right before Valentine’s Day!
G and V-Day Brunch
Have a combined Galentine’s and Valentine’s Day brunch with an emphasis on friendship. Hosting a leisurely brunch is a great way to catch up without having to clock watch. Set up a photo booth with a G-Day backdrop and take photos of each other and with each. This is a great way to create special memories with friends and family.
At-home Spa Day and Fondue
To give it the spa feel, we suggest everyone wear a robe. Although the men may not want a facial, insist on it for fun. In fact, the men must earn a back massage by having a facial first. The women can watch before having theirs! Then, the men can be gallant knights and prepare the fondue while the ladies receive manicures and pedicures.
Plant a Plant Party
This is a good idea if you plan on including younger guests. Have guests bring a plant that they can easily transplant into a planter or a pot. Alternatively, buy the plants and have them waiting. In addition to the planting, you can make commemorative wooden signposts for the youngsters to write on. Take a photo of your guests with their plants. This is a great way to create living memories and fun times with your family and friends with kids.
Galentine’s Day is the perfect time to make desserts for Valentine’s Day. Invite a couple of friends over and start baking! Be sure to outline the agenda before uncorking the wine. A baking party is also another great idea if you plan on inviting younger family members. You can also invite grandma for an afternoon of floury fun.
If you are unable to see close friends and loved ones on Galentine’s Day, devote time writing each of them a note you can drop off. Who doesn’t love hearing that they are loved and appreciated? Mention a specific quality that you admire and tell them what they mean to you.
The bond of friendship is a special thing. One way to strengthen that bond is to create custom T-shirts for you and your circle of friends. This is way better than any BFF necklace! Bring your idea to Omaha Shirts and we’ll help you bring it to life!
