Ladies, single or not, this February 13th celebrate the love for your favourite females by hosting your own Galentine's Day celebration. Galentine's Day which was introduced by NBC's Parks and Recreation, has transcended the television screen and become established in everyday culture. It's a day where we can gather our closest friends and bask in the glorious love and friendship of the women around us. Every February 13th, women around the world leave their significant others at home to celebrate what’s truly important in life: their best friends.

The invite list is truly the most important part. What makes Galentine’s Day special is that you’re spending time with the ladies you love most. The company is key. It's important to surround yourself with women who lift you up, support your dreams, and will help you be the best version of yourself. Diets are also out the door on Galentine’s Day, so make sure to stock up on your favourite sweet indulgences- cake, chocolate, sweets, ice-cream - anything you like best. So make this year's Galentine's Day one to remember with some of these fun ideas:

Host a movie night
Save the cheesy rom-coms for Valentine’s Day. Host a Galentine’s Day movie night that only features movies with strong lead female characters. Some suggestions: The HelpThe Hunger GamesErin Brockovich

Take a ladies road trip
You don’t have to spend Galentine's Day inside. If you’re not near the beach, you can take a day trip instead. Some ideas include going for a hike, or exploring that nearby small town you’ve been meaning to hit.

Have a brunch date
Dinner dates are for your significant other, brunch dates are for your girls. Nothing says friendship like scrambled eggs, waffles, and a bottle of fizz! 

Organise a friendship photoshoot
Get dressed up (in outfits from your closet or ones that you bought on your Galentine’s shopping spree), and host your own photo shoot. Take turns modeling outfits while the others take pictures paparazzi-style.

Go for a spa day
Treat yourselves to a spa day together. Pamper yourselves with a manicure or massage all the while catching up on the latest with your favourites.

Throw a pyjama party
Keep it cosy, throw on your favourite pyjamas and have a lounge-about with your best friends. Make it a lazy day… aren’t those the best kind?

Host a dessert party
This could be a potluck where everyone brings a different dessert (and recipe to share), or everyone could all make desserts together. Either way, it’s the perfect excuse to give in to your sweet tooth for a sweet little indulgence together.
