Are you ready for a Galentines Night In? We defos are!
We may not be with our Galentines in person this year, but we can still celebrate virtually, babe!
Given that this celebratory day is a Saturday this year, it’s practically mandatory to have a cyber party. So we’ve listed our top ideas for making your night in with your true ride or dies one to remember!
- Send your besties an invitation to your Galentine’s night with a card. Let them know ya love them and that they have plans for the weekend! If you wanna be really extra, you could send this with a lil hamper of the ingredients needed to make your cocktail of choice. What says I love you better than a boozy tipple?

- Create the ultimate and most empowering feel good playlist you can think of with your chicas. Each adds 5 of their favourite ‘girls night in’ songs and get the volume turned up on your speakers. The closest to the club we’re getting! Every time you listen to it you will think of your besties and it's seriously uplifting on a bad day...
- Watch a classic chick-flick together on Netflix Party; 10 Things I hate about you, Sex and the City, Mean Girls… the list goes on! Discuss the heartthrob hunks and the sassy 90’s and 00’s fashion on the chat option, whilst sipping on a homemade Cupid's Arrow from your bedroom Teleparty (netflixparty.com)
- Secret Santa, but make it sassy? - Why not put your twist on this gift exchange and do a Secret Cupid edition! Give your gal a gift that you know she’ll love; new PJ’s, a pamper hamper or a lush set of Lola’s Lashes. Unveil all on your zoom call and try to guess who got what (if you haven’t spilled the secret already!) Gift Exchange Generator (drawnames.ie)
- GRWM - We can’t have the usual pre-drinks whilst getting ready with the gals, but can do our own version of a GRWM! Grab your fav Lola’s Lashes and have a good old gossip on zoom whilst you make yourself look FAB for the night ahead!
- Speaking of competition, why not put your friendship to the test with a BFF quiz, full of friendship trivia. A good way to dig up some of those long lost memories and laugh about the good times you’ve had together!

When you’re done with these, you’ll be left feeling like the queen you are! Valentine's day, who?
