Relationships come and go, but friendships are for life! We agree with Parks and Recreation’s Leslie Knope, it’s the best day of the year-Galentine’s Day! A day for girls celebrating their girls. Whether you have a bae or not, you can always show your appreciation for the lovely ladies in your life. Just like Miley, we can buy ourselves flowers. This year, we’re giving you the best ideas to spend your day sharing the hot goss, a drink or two, and pampering yourselves!
Make Charcuterie Boards
We’re writing love notes for our cheesy girls. Get creative with a delicious spread of your favorite savory and sweet combinations. Cut your meat and cheeses into hearts to have an Insta worthy photo op. Feel free to get creative and make your own macarons or mini cupcakes. You can even have a theme and make it a BYOB- bring your own board party!
Take (or Make) a Mixology Class
Mix up a Pink Lady for your ladies in pink! Sign up for a mixology class and shake up the love in your life. Take a shot at a fun twist to a night of girl talk with a side of drinks. Stir, shake, and blend your way to mastering the art of cocktails with expert tips. If you’re wanting a night in, buy a couple mixers and create your own colorful Cupid concoctions! Or check out this Galentine’s event in the historic downtown Riverside!
Paint and Sip Party
It’s time to dip into your creative side. Enjoy a glass of wine (or bottle, we won’t judge!) and try your hand at painting a cute canvas for your living room wall. Book a paint and sip event, or be everyone’s sweetheart and host one of your own. It can be easy to pull up a follow along video in the comfort of your own home. Jam out to your favorite feel good playlist-or scream at that ex to some Adele. Whichever you’re in the mood for-having a painting party at home is the perfect setting.
Binge Your Favorite Rom-Coms
Whether it be a tear-jerker, rebound relationship, or friends to lovers film, there’s a rom-com to satisfy all our imaginary scenarios. Grab your girls and some snacks to spend the night watching the best comfort movie classics. Its an easy way to escape reality and live out the Meg Ryan romance we all deserve-from the couch.
Move over Santa, it’s Cupid’s time of year! If gift giving is your love language, we’re aiming for your heart with this one! Have all your besties pick a name to surprise with a present. Make it as special or spicy as you’d like. Picture frames, candles, affirmation journals, and perfumes are just a few sweet ideas for your girls.
Recharge with some much needed relax time. What better way to do it than with those you love? The sweethearts at Spa LA is your stop!
