With Valentine's Day peeking around the corner, all women in your life deserve the best. Be it a hardworking mother, a pampered daughter, a beautiful wife, or even a best friend who stood by your side at all times.
And this is where the much anticipated, Galentine’s Day comes into the picture. Celebrated just a day before Valentine’s Day, Galentines is the perfect excuse to spoil the women in your life. From brunching out at fancy tea houses to enjoying an at-home spa, 13th February receives equal importance because friends are special, and deserve to be treated special too.
So, to make the planning easy for you, here is what you should be doing on Galentine’s Day with your besties,
Stressed about what to wear for Galentine’s day?
Women love dressing up, so what’s better than starting off the planning with an outfit check. Schedule a casual shopping spree with your girls or take them on FaceTime and put together outfits from your wardrobe.
DIYs are always a thing to do, not only does everyone gets to explore their creativity and at the end of it, they have a personalized gift for themselves.
To organize the party, list down the supplies needed and split up the cost with your ladies. It is best to use a standard subject/inspiration if you are painting so that at the end of it you all can see different perspectives of the same subject. You all can also make greeting cards and spill creative juices. And at the end of the day, each girl will have a memorable keepsake for Galentine’s Day.
Treat yourself and your girls to a lovely at-home spa. You can either go out to a local salon for a spa day to enjoy a soothing body massage or plan one at the comfort of your home. But don’t worry, there is no need to revamp your entire house into a grand well-ness retreat.
A spa date at home with friends can be as simple as lighting up some freshly scented candles around the house and putting on a sheet mask. Or you can soak up your feet in warm water with crystalized bath salts while you read your favorite book. And alas! a perfectly relaxing day with your gals pals.
Friendships are all about learning something new together? From getting your first piercing together to bungee jumping, friends do everything together. So, if you are running short on ideas for Galentine’s Day then get a crochet kit and knit together chunky throw for your couches or if you want to polish your culinary skills then take a baking class.
However, regardless of what you decide to do, the goal is to have each other’s back and make a progress in learning something new.
Of course, gifts are an integral part of celebrating Galentine’s Day so be on the top of your game to honor the female relationships in your life.

Take pictures, record videos, or journal your road trip to save it as a memory.
Before you make plans with your special someone on Valentine’s Day, be sure to capture the true spirit of Galentine’s Day with your girls.
