Let's Celebrate Galentine's Day

Posted on 07 February 2019

February is here and it’s time to celebrate your partner, your partner in crime that is, because we're talking Galentine's Day, ladies.

If unfamiliar with this most sacred of holidays, thank Amy Poehler’s Parks and Recreation character Leslie Knope: “Oh it’s only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus, frittatas.

Your girl squad deserves celebrating as much as any relationship. Friendships enrich your life, they make you a better person and scientific studies claim they benefit your health. These are facts you can remind your significant other of as you're getting dolled up for a night on the town. Because science.
Before you’re eye-rolling your way through the annual Valentine's Day social media blitz, blast some Beyoncé and partake in a girls’ day celebration. No matter your Feb. 14th plans, show some Galentine’s Day love to the ladies in your life who will be there for beach days, breakdowns, and everything in between! Pick a weekend and lock your girls’ day in now! Need inspiration? We've got you covered.

MORNING:

Brunch

Dress up, bless up, and eat up. Throw on your best brunch attire, order whatever your heart desires and treat yo’ self. Brunch is the OG way to celebrate Galentine's Day. Sip on breakfast cocktails while exchanging laughs and stories at your favourite spot or try somewhere new!

DAY:

Picnic

Everyone chip in and start planning right away to make it a picnic fit for a queen! Prep your baskets with sweet and savory favourites and plenty of libations to go around. Make it a proper event with the right decor, music and entertainment; pack your faves, and if you need help, we've got you covered. Check your weather apps and stake out a spot or, if the weather turns foul, indoor picnics are all the rage! Binge-watch chick-flicks and have a girls’ day in.

Get Active

What's more “strong, independent” woman than challenging yourself to a hike, or getting fit in sister solidarity. It’s perfect time for that fitness class you always say you’re going to do but never actually get around to (can relate). Find a special fitness event or, get active for a cause, and sign up for a fitness fund raiser.

Afternoon:

Tea Time

If you want to make brunch last all day long, attend afternoon tea. In the spirit of treating yourself, dress in your Sunday best and put your pinkies up. It’s the ultimate girls’ day out. Eat finger sandwiches, and drink from an incredible selection of Galentine’s libations, from teas to bubbly. And pretend that you do this, like, all the time.

High Notes

This Valentine’s Day season, the only tears rolling down your face will be tears of laughter. Make memories and laugh the night away with your girls. Head to your nearest Karaoke bar and belt your hearts out. It's a fact that, after a few drinks, everyone is amazing at karaoke. Hit those high notes with your biggest fans cheering you on.

NIGHT:

Night on the Town

A girls’ night out, of course! Get glammed up with your girl squad and head out for a night of painting the town red. Any educated establishment should know, Galentine’s Day deserves respect, so there’s likely to be specials and events all around you. Check out that dream-restaurant you’ve had your eye on, they might be offering a deal, or dance the night away, surrounded by your favourite ladies.

Popcorn Time

Load up on your best guilty pleasure snacks and head to your nearest cinema, soak in the girls’ day finale surrounded by film, food and friends. Take your pick from the chick-flick selection of your local movie theatres, and don’t forget the popcorn! Make it a real night at the theatre, there's a whole host of musicals and plays with Galentine’s Day perfect titles. Treat yourself to something out of the ordinary and check what’s on at your local play-theatre.

Keep It Simple

Don't forget, it's your day too, so don't stress the details. Grab your girls. Grab a mimosa (grab two). Galentine's Day comes but once a year!

Cheers!
