8 Galentine's Day Ideas For A Celebration With Your Gal Pals!



Galentine’s Day is the holiday we all know best created by our beloved Leslie Knope, a character from Parks and Recreation show, made to celebrate the women in her life. 

Each year on February 13th, Leslie gathers her best girl friends to exchange gifts and “kick it breakfast style.” 




This year, we hosted our second Galentine’s/Puppentine's Day party filled with some mini tacos from Trader Joe's and lots and lots of sweet treats.

Here are some things we think will make you want to have every Taylor Swift song on repeat!  And your time with your girls that much more enjoyable:



  1. Rom-coms like “Love Actually”,  "Your Best Friend's Wedding", “The Proposal” or “500 Days of Summer.” You can’t go wrong with Sandra Bullock, Julia Roberts or Zooey Deschanel.
2. Or if you and the girls are in the mood for a cry-your-eyes-out movie, “The Notebook” or “Titanic” always satisfy. *Keep tissues nearby*

3. Another current favorite on Netflix, "Taylor Swift Reputation Stadium Tour" and dance your party away!

4. Magazines, such as Self, so you can read up on the latest trends to look fresh and feel fab for the new year.

5. Junk food. You can go all out and rob the candy aisles at Walgreen's, but balance the sweets with salty popcorn or chips. Don't be afraid to add some message hearts and sprinkles mixed into your popcorn for that sweet n' salty! 

6. Baking session. Baking together is an easy way to get everyone involved. Or bake cupcakes and cookies ahead of time for everyone to decorate for fun!

7. Decor. Cut out paper hearts or hang festive streamers in the party room. Making it rain glitter is highly recommended on Galentine’s Day. Red, white or pink carnations or roses are also a nice touch and smell delightful.

8. Crafts. Handmade Valentine’s cards for all your gal pals. Either before the party or during, make cards and write something thoughtful for each of your friends or for them to take home as favors.

Ultimately, your Galentine’s Day party is meant to cherish the women in your life and their friendship. Remind your friends how much you appreciate them, because sometimes, kind words get lost in our busy schedules.
