Everyone deserves to feel special on Valentine’s Day whether they’re coupled up or rocking life as a single chick. And you should know by now that you don’t need a date on Valentine’s Day to make it a memorable one.
This year, rather than go down the traditional path, we’ve decided to pay tribute to the main flames in our lives; our gal pals aka the sisterhood. They’re the ones who make life all the sweeter for us, after all.
We’re calling it: Galentine’s Day! It’s time to bend that rulebook backwards and ask your girls – the ones who always have your back – to be your Valentine’s. Here are some epic bae-friend date ideas that will help you toast the kind of love that never lets you down – friendship.
Signed, sealed, delivered
Kinda like Secret Santa, only you and a group of pals draw names and then deliver a Valentine’s Day themed item like chocolates or flowers. That way everyone can have a Galentine! Hint: Pamper Club Box makes for the perfect gift…
It's a party!
You know, the kind of night that fills your heart and makes your soul dance. Think dressing gowns, slippers, pizza delivery, nail polish and masking (of course). Pair that with body scrubs, candles and drinking chocolate from our Galentine’s Day Box and to sweeten the deal, just like our customers sweeten our lives, we’ll give you $4 off each box when you purchase more than two boxes (because pampering is meant to be shared).
Go out and about
If you’re all feeling single and fabulous, there’s no way you should allow each other to stay in. Put on those dancing shoes and go find that d floor! Don’t forget to dance like no one’s watching (it’s cardio, after all).
Girls on the road
Why not? Book your flights with a group of friends, and get on out of here. There’s plenty of cool vacay options over on Air BnB. Or round up your crew, pack a picnic lunch and go on an adventure for the day. Whether it’s beach side or out in the mountains, plan a fun road trip to remember.
We know we said we’re celebrating chicks only, but Tinder has this cool new feature where you can actually team up with other groups to a have a ball. Whether you match with another group of gals or guys, you’ll be in the presence of good company!
Galentine’s Day isn’t just for group situations and just because you’re single doesn’t mean you’re alone! Revel in your ability to have an amazing time, whether it’s with Ryan Gosling or Johnny Depp, by binge watching your favourite movies and treating yourself to an eye candy marathon.
Since you aren’t spending your dough on dudes, head to the shops with your tribe and treat yourself to something special like a new necklace or a mani-pedi. You all deserve it after all.
Fifty shades of awesomeness
Round up your chicks and go and see the new Fifty Shades of Grey in Gold Class. We are. And it’s going to be AWESOME!
Girls just wanna have fun!
Who better to celebrate V Day than with the gals who love you unconditionally? Invite friends over for drinks and canapés, gossiping and good times and make it a themed party. Suggest everyone wear black or pink, and throw on your favourite empowering tracks like ‘Girls Just Wana Have Fun’ while you dance around in your underwear.
Buy that choc... for you and only for you
Who says you need someone to buy it for you? Chocolate is so readily available on this day, and all the couples are too busy making out to actually eat it! All the more for you (and your crew!).
