Today marks the unofficial holiday of Galentine’s Day. A day to be spent with your closest and bestest Gal pals, Galentine’s Day originated in a Parks & Rec episode back in 2010. Whether your single or in a committed relationship, Galentine’s Day is a great way to embrace the women who know how you tick, answer those cryptic texts, and always have your alibi readily available. There are so many ways to celebrate your gals, here is a list of fun activities for your ladies only day!
Spa Visit– Whether you opt for a 45 minute relaxation in a Salt Cave or do a full body massage with your besties. A spa visit can easily massage all of your worries away and give you the rejuvenation.
A trip to the vineyard– Wine with my besties sounds like the perfect way to spend a Galentine’s Day. Plan out your menu and divvy up appetizers for everyone to bring, then enjoy the vino of your local winery.
Ladies dinner– Have you been itching to go to that local tapas restaurant but your man wont even consider? Today is the day! Grab your girls and order tapas for all, but not just any tapas, order all of the cauliflower, eggplant, and veggies your stomach can handle. There will be no man demanding steak and potatoes at your table!
Manicures– This may be considered an oldie, but who doesn’t feel their very best with a fresh coat of paint on their nails? Splurge and opt for a deluxe manicure that includes a massage, warm towel, and gel paint.
Yoga– My girlfriends and I could always use a little zen in our lives. Between schlepping kids to activities, PTA, work, room parent, basketball, dance, deadlines, or whatever else you have going on, a little time of meditation and relaxation will have you feel ready to take on the daily To Do list.
Brunch– I’m a sucker for brunch so I always try to incorporate it into any activity. There’s just something about waffles and bacon in the afternoon that makes me smile. Brunch is a great option if a dinner with your girls doesn’t fit into your schedule. Find a nice brunch buffet and top it off with a round of mimosas.
No matter where you are located, there’s sure to be something to do for some quality girl time. Whatever you decide to do this Galentine’s Day, be sure to include your few and true and enjoy the day!
