As we all know, Valentine’s Day is just days away. Some people don’t like this holiday or feel like they have no reason to celebrate it, but that’s not true. This day is not just about people in romantic relationships, but a day to show love to yourself and the people in your life. You can still celebrate love on Galentines Day on February 13! These vacations are the best way to spend quality time with friends, especially if you like to change things up. These 13 ideas will help you celebrate this holiday safely with your girlfriends.
1. Dress for the occasion
Just because you’re staying indoors doesn’t mean you shouldn’t dress up! Set a dress code with your friends and have fun with it. Putting on a cute outfit that gives you confidence and makes you happy will set you in a good mood for the rest of the day.
2. Gift exchange
Giving and receiving gifts is a lot of fun during the holidays. The best part about choosing gifts for your daughters is that the possibilities are endless. Giving gifts allows you to be as creative as possible. The best gifts aren’t the most expensive, but the thoughtful and most personal ones. For this gift exchange, you can choose who you want to give a gift to, or you can make it more fun by randomly picking a person and keeping it a secret until that day.
3. Photo session
You will definitely want to take some pictures of your pretty outfit, so you might as well organize a little photo session with your friends! To keep safe, you can install props like balloons, banners, backdrops, etc., around your house or in your garden. Set up a tripod or take turns with your friends to take the photos. Show off your outfit, change poses, take photos alone and others with your friends, put music in the background and have fun.
Delicious homemade meals are always a good idea. It doesn’t matter if you’re not an expert, the most important thing is that you have fun. Don’t be afraid to research and try something new, recipes and food trends are always circulating online. If you want to spice things up and make it more competitive, have a cooking contest! Ask friends to be the judges and may the best dish win. Find delicious recipes here!
If cooking isn’t your thing or you and your girls are craving something sweet, whip up some sweet treats! You can make cookies, cakes, chocolate covered fruits, brownies, pies, truffles, barks… the possibilities are endless. After baking, spend some time decorating according to the holiday theme.
