Our good friend Leslie Knope once wisely said, “Galentine’s Day is only the best day of the year!!” Obviously, we totally agree with her. Valentine’s Day is for celebrating with your significant other but Galentine’s Day is a chance to celebrate your favorite gal pals for sticking with you through thick and thin. Need some new ideas on how to celebrate and make this the best Galentine’s Day ever? We’ve got you covered!

Host a self care night

You know the dozens of tiny skin care samples that have taken over your medicine cabinet? Those are the perfect ingredients for a self care night with your besties. Put on your favorite rom-com and spend the night giving each other manicures, trying out new face masks, relaxing, and enjoying each other’s company. Keep the good vibes going and send everybody home with a Self Care Index.

Shower them with sweet treats

Your gals might get candy hearts and a box of chocolate from their valentine but nothing beats homemade treats baked with love. From waffles to cake pops, the options are endless. Make them a sweet treat and surprise them by dropping it off or leave it at their doorstep to come home to after a long day.

Make them their own playlist

Curate a one of a kind playlist for your galentine. You probably know her guilty pleasure artists better than anybody else. Whether she listens to it during a sweat sesh at the gym or on a long commute home, she will be thankful for being able to press play and enjoy the jams.

Brunch with your babes

In our opinion, brunch is the most important meal of the day. There is no better way to bond than over waffles and mimosas. Try out a new restaurant or head to your favorite spot. For Clevelanders, we love going to Jack Flaps to get pancakes the size of our head, biscuits and gravy from Lucky's Cafe and making our own crepes at Townhall.
