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!


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!


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!


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!

Famous Quotes

Silence at the proper season is wisdom, and better than any speech.


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!


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!

How are you celebrating Valentine’s Day? Will you celebrate with your girlfriends? If you’re planning on celebrating with any of these ideas, I want to hear about it! Sound off in the comments!
