Galentine’s Day is the unofficial holiday the day before Valentine’s Day. It’s a day for celebrating the love you have for your female friends, whether they’re single or not. The notion behind Galentine’s Day is to embrace, empower and shower your girlfriends with love. It has a more expansive take on love as compared to Valentine’s Day. Here are ways to celebrate a day that is purely platonic and also encourages self-love.
Gather with your girls, order in and unapologetically binge watch all your favourite
shows on Netflix. Host a karaoke evening and belt out your favourite songs that are a feel-good and mood lifter. Take a short left outside the city for a much needed bonding session and relaxation. Book an Airbnb for a day or the weekend. You’ll be guaranteed an aesthetically pleasing home away from home you can call your own for the weekend.
A large, spacious house encourages bonding, which is great for catching up with your girlfriends all night. Host a cooking dinner party. Instead of doing all the work, invite your girlfriends over to each cook a dish in your kitchen and spend the evening “breaking bed” together. Surprise your girls with a bouquet of their favourite flowers at their workplace or drop them off at home. Remember, it’s always wise to give them flowers while they can still smell them. Spread more love and give back to the community by visiting an old age home or shelter. Shower them with gifts, your time and affection.
