You know what they say. Lovers will come and go, but best friends are forever. With that said, Valentine’s Day isn’t just for romantic partners; it’s an opportunity to celebrate anyone you love, namely, the friends who have been there for all your highs and lows. But what kind of celebration can appropriately convey the immense respect and appreciation you have for your besties? In this blog, we’re bringing you seven ideas for Galentine’s Day Activities to consider.
7 Galentine’s Day Activities for your Valentine’s festivities
Get out of your comfort zone and put on an impromptu performance. This is an easy lift- just throw your favorite song on YouTube and grab a hairbrush to use as your microphone. If you want to get extra fancy, raid your closet for a makeshift costume to really play up your part. Also, serve a round or two of Ladykind’s famous Margarita Mocktails to help shed those inhibitions for a little liquid courage.
If you’re looking for activity ideas that require minimal effort, a potluck-style event is always a go-to option. Lighten your load by creating a cute Canva menu graphic and sending it to the group chat for each person to sign up to bring a specific item. Then, browse Pinterest for a fun theme and go as crazy as your budget allows on party favors and decor!
DIY spa day
Going to the spa for a facial or massage is such a great way to spend quality time with your besties. Something about the quiet, serene environment brings out the most intimate conversations that in time, make up the substance of our connections. So why not recreate this vibe at home?
Gather some of your favorite self-care items and create an agenda. Your at-home spa aeshetic can include DIY facials using your favorite skincare products, portable shiatsu back and neck massagers, or giving each other mani-pedis. More importantly, don’t forget to include some cucumber-infused water or detoxifying green tea imbued with Ladykind’s Wind Down tincture for the ultimate relaxation.
Netflix & chill night
Another great way to max out on chill vibes with your galentines is to host a movie marathon. Pop some popcorn and serve it in these cute box buckets with a tray of our popular Madras cocktails which also feature the award-winning Wind Down tincture. Add some matching pjs to your party plans, and consider this the perfect way to unwind!
Wine & paint
For the creatives and arts and crafts fanatics, wine and paint events are a great way to foster connection. All you’ll need is paint supplies and something to paint on, and some newspaper to protect your table or floors. Once you have those ready, search socials for an artsy landscape or portrait photo for the group to recreate or draw inspiration from.
To level up your party vibes, we also recommend making a playlist ahead of time with all your favorite feel-good songs to listen to while chatting with your friends. Oh, and don’t forget the snacks!
Who doesn’t love to play games? No matter what ages are in your friend group, board games, card games, and even digital games will naturally create a night full of guaranteed fun. Stick with the classics like Jenga or Monopoly, or turn it up on the interaction with charades or a group game app you can download on your phone, like Heads Up!
If a backyard is accessible to you, rent a tent or use some sheets and pillows to create one. Bring out some games, snacks, and some CBD-Infused Hot Chocolate to keep it cozy outdoors.
