Movie Marathon

Who doesn’t love a good movie marathon with their girlfriends? Sometimes, though, life gets in the way, especially during and after the holidays. That makes Valentine’s Day the perfect time of the year to get together with your friends for some much-needed girl time, and what better to do than watch your favorite movies? Whether you need a little bit of a cry-fest to a Nicholas Sparks movie or want to laugh your head off at a comedy, a movie marathon may be just what you need!

***

To make the movie marathon even more memorable, why not theme it around love and friendship? You could line up classics like "Thelma & Louise" or "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" to celebrate the power of female bonds. Don't forget to stock up on popcorn, sweets, and your favorite drinks. To add a personal touch, everyone can bring a beloved movie from their teenage years to share a piece of their past. Laughing, crying, and reminiscing with your best friends by your side is the ultimate way to honor the spirit of Valentine’s Day!

Galentine’s Day Brunch

Thanks to Leslie Knope, Valentine’s Day is slowly becoming more and more about spending time with your girlfriends rather than eating chocolate alone in your apartment all night. Honor Leslie Knope, and the imminent Parks and Recreation series finale, and host a Galentine’s Day brunch with your best friends!

***

Galentine’s Day is a day to celebrate female friendship, and what better way to do that than with a brunch? Whether you’re single, taken, or somewhere in between, it’s a great way to get together with your girlfriends and celebrate the relationships you have with each other. Gather around the table with your besties, share stories, and enjoy a delicious meal. And don’t forget to toast Leslie Knope and the Parks and Recreation series finale!

Craft Night

If you and your friends love crafts but don’t have the time you’d like to devote to them, round everyone up for a night in making crafts together! Create a group Pinterest board for everyone to pin their favorite ideas to, and then pick a few from that group to make together! You may even get some cute DIY home décor out of the event!

***

To make the evening extra special, consider assigning each friend a different crafting supply to bring, such as different types of paper, ribbons, beads, or paints. This will ensure you have a variety of materials to work with, sparking more creativity and fun. Share crafting techniques, exchange tips, and if someone is an expert in a particular craft, have them do a mini tutorial for the group. End the night by exchanging some of the crafts you've made, giving everyone a personalized keepsake that will remind them of a delightful evening spent with friends.

Beauty Night

Everyone loves a good spa night, but it can be hard to schedule time for one when you also went to spend time with your friends! Make an event out of it, and bring your favorite spa and beauty products to chat about while completely pampering yourself and relaxing!

***

Grab those facial masks, nail polishes, and scrubs, and transform your living space into a delightful home spa. You can exchange beauty tips and try out new looks together, all while indulging in some chocolate-covered strawberries and sipping on sparkling beverages. Remember to create a tranquil playlist to set the mood, and don't forget the scented candles to complete the serene atmosphere. This kind of pampering is not just about looking good, but feeling fabulous and cherished in the company of your closest pals.

Have a Classic Valentine’s Day Party

If the memory of elementary school Valentine’s Day parties make you as nostalgic as they make me, the idea of bringing that back for your best friends may just sound like a great time! Re-create the magic of your elementary school days and play games, bring Valentine cards and candy, and indulge in adorable Valentine’s Day treats!

***

To amp up the nostalgia, decorate with red and pink streamers, heart-shaped balloons, and glittery table confetti. Don't forget a photo booth corner with funny props for those Instagram-worthy shots. You could even set up a DIY craft station where everyone makes their own Valentine's Day card—glue sticks and construction paper galore! For snacks, think pink frosted cupcakes, chocolate-dipped strawberries, and conversation hearts. And of course, no party is complete without some classic tunes—create a playlist with all the love songs from your school days to really set the mood.

A Cookie Exchange

Cookie exchanges are usually reserved for Christmas, but that shouldn’t be the case! There are a lot of cute Valentine’s Day cookie recipes, especially with the help of Pinterest that will make it such a fun party, and one that you and your friends will definitely remember!

***

Gather everyone in your circle for a sweet treat swap. Have each friend bake a batch of their favorite Valentine-themed cookies to share. Think heart-shaped sugar cookies, red velvet crinkles, or chocolate-dipped shortbread. Not only does it give everyone an opportunity to show off their baking skills, but you’ll also end the day with a delicious assortment of goodies. Plus, it’s a great chance to exchange recipes and bond over a shared love of dessert. Don’t forget the cute boxes or tins for guests to take their new treats home—it's like a little piece of the party to savor later.

A Binge-Watch Night

Don’t we all have shows that we’d love to watch, or that our friends are begging us to watch, but we just don’t have the time? Capitalize on a night in with your girlfriends and use your hangout to binge-watch your favorite shows together! You may just find your new favorite show together!
