The Best Galentines Day Ideas in 2024

Valentine's shmalentines - February is HERE and you know what that means: Galentine's Day is just around the corner! If you're looking for some fun ways to celebrate the women in your life this year, look no further. We've got a smorgasbord of fun Galentine's day ideas for your whole crew.

What Exactly is Galentine's Day?

Galentine's Day is the day you celebrate your gal pals! The invention of the holiday is credited to the brilliant writing staff for the series Parks and Recreation, but we're almost certain that people were celebrating Galentine's Day on their own long before Leslie Knope made it a national holiday.


Galentine's Day is all about women empowering and uplifting each other and celebrating their achievements. It's a day to celebrate friendship and show your girlfriends you love and care about them - and okay, to maybe have one too many mimosas at brunch.

7 Fun Ideas for Celebrating Galentine's Day

Looking for Galentines day ideas? Look no further! We've got Galentine's day party ideas, activities, and more to help you celebrate Galentine's day in style this year.

Wine Tasting

Okay, we'll admit this maybe isn't the most original Galentine's day idea, but that doesn't make it any less fun! Get the wine lovers in your life together for some fun snacks, cheese, and your favorite wine - or try something new!


A wine tasting doesn't necessarily have to be a big expensive outing. Why not host a wine swap at your house? Have each of your friends bring their favorite wine and have fun sampling each other's contributions!

Girls Trip

If you're looking to make a big splash this Galentine's day, consider a trip! Get your friend group together for a road trip to a nearby spot you've been wanting to check out, or go all out and spring for a full-on Caribbean vacay! (February is a great time of year to visit the tropics!)


Slumber Party

Remember staying up all night giggling and talking about your latest crush? Bring those days back with a fun Galentine's Day party! We're talking PJs, makeovers, heart shaped pizzas, face masks, the whole shebang!


You could also combine your slumber party with a game night (have everyone bring their favorite board games) a fondue night, a fancy dinner, or just a cozy night reading. The best part? Now that you're no longer in high school wine is one hundred percent allowed.

Dance Class

Some of the best Galentine's day ideas are those that will have you in stitches laughing at yourselves and each other, and let's be honest, there's no better way to do that than to get out of your comfort zone and take a dance class!


Trying something new on your own can be daunting, but it's much easier to make a fool of yourself when you're doing it with your closest gal pals (plus, it's a great opportunity to show off your new athleisurewear!)

Secret Cupid

For a low-key Galentine's Day celebration, why not do a secret Santa or secret Cupid with your friend group? No party required: simply choose names from a hat and send flowers, or write a heartfelt message or card. You can exchange the cards at a Galentine's day brunch, or simply exchange them next time you see each other.


This is a great way for long-distance friends to stay in tough and celebrate Galentine's day too!

Karaoke Party

Is there a more fun time to be had than a night of karaoke? We don't think so. Whether at a karaoke bar or just in your living room, a karaoke party is a great way to cut loose and have some fun. Make it a Galentine's Day party with a polaroid camera to capture the memories.


Afternoon Tea

Perhaps you'd like your Galentine's Day celebration to be a little more refined. After all, your best friends are sophisticated ladies with polite tastes, not reckless heathens who eat melted cheese and dance hand in hand atop the tables at your favorite bar (right?)


Okay, so maybe you're reckless heathens on Saturday. That still leaves Sunday afternoon for an elegant Galentine's Day party with fun hats, fancy teas and personalized goodie bags.

Spa Day

Are you happily single and looking forward to spending time on your own? Practice self love this Galentine's Day with a solo spa day. It could be as simple as a day trip to the nail salon, or a full-on weekend retreat to an exclusive resort. To borrow another phrase from the Parks and Recreation lexicon: treat yo'self!


Celebrating Gal Pals is Timeless

These fun Galentine's day ideas are just a few ways to celebrate the incredible friends in your life. Don't stop here! Let your creative juices flow and come up with your own Galentine's day party ideas - no matter what you decide, as long as you're having fun and making memories, it's all good.
