How to Celebrate Galentine's Day With Your Friends

Valentine’s Day can literally be the worst. If you don’t have a “special someone” to spend it with, it can feel like a day to reflect on your own loneliness. But it doesn’t have to feel that way!! What better way to spend it than with the ones you love the most-- your friends! Here are 5 things to do with your friends to have the best GALentine’s day yet:

1. Get food with your friends!

Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to get some cute food with your friends and take cute pictures for Instagram or Snapchat ;) Go to somewhere cute that you normally don’t! Try a new ice cream place, bakery, acai place, or just a cute coffee shop. Make it even more fun by dressing up and making a date out of it (but with your gals!!)


2. Go shopping

What better way to let go of any Valentine’s Day blues than a little retail therapy! Go thrift shopping or to your nearest mall with your friends and pick out outfits for each other to try on. Sounds cheesy, but that’s what Galentine’s Day is all about!


3. Have a photoshoot

This doesn’t have to be as superficial as you would think. You can set up a really cute background or go to a beautiful location and take pictures with your ladies! After, make them special by making them your phone background, framing some of them, or putting them on your wall to remind you how special your friends are.


4. Throw a party!

Bake some brownies, put on some music or a movie, and invite a bunch of your friends to a Galentine’s Day sleepover. This is honestly one of the best ways you can bond with your friends.


5. Do a spa night

Treat yourself!! Put on facemasks with your friends, light some candles, do each others’ hair, and watch a movie. Enjoy a night of relaxation with your favorite people.
