Hey there Fashionistas! Let’s talk about Galentine’s Day Date Ideas! The ever-popular “Galentine’s Day” first debuted on the series, “Parks and Recreation”. Celebrated the day before Valentine’s Day, this fun holiday was designed for women to celebrate their female friendships, “sisterships”, and even devote the day to self-love and self-care.
This gal-focused day allows for women to appreciate themselves and their amazing power. So, let’s get into a few Galentine’s Day Date Ideas for you and your girls!
Prefer a Virtual Date?
Since we are amid a pandemic, some may be a little bit leary of large crowds but may feel better about doing something virtual. Well, we got you covered! There are so many virtual activities that could really make Galentine’s Day special!
Virtual Spa Day
One that is very popular and so much fun is a Virtual Spa Day! Plan ahead with a list of items each gal pal should have in the comfort of their own space. The easiest way to do this is to create a private list on Amazon with amazing, affordable items such as one-step face cleansers, moisturizer, a bathrobe and face towel set, a scented candle, or a personalized wine tumbler cup (don’t forget to tell them to buy wine)!
Share your Amazon Wishlist with your Galentine’s Day crew and plan a time for everyone to set up. Create a mini-itinerary so everyone is on the same page with the self-care, spa day moment. Once prepped, jump on a scheduled Zoom call and enjoy your time together! Pick out a playlist that everyone can enjoy, a few games, and celebrate each other!

Virtual “Dinner and a Movie”
Since we are on the subject of Amazon, why not have Dinner and a Movie! Amazon Prime has a feature where you can enter your name and click on Create Watch Party. Twitch has an entire article dedicated to hosting a watch party worthy of sharing with your Galentine’s Day date crew!
Now, what about the dinner part, right? Make one person the designated “Dinner Matchmaker”. That person will be responsible for getting all food allergies and dietary restriction information along with addresses, etc…
The matching process will be kept a secret, only to be revealed on the evening of Galentine’s Day. Once everyone is matched, pick a favorite food delivery app and make sure that everyone schedules each delivery in advance so that all dinners could be delivered around the same time. The intricate details of this, you’ll be able to figure out! I personally love Charcuterie Boxes and Wine! No-fuss and super easy!
Daytime Date Ideas
If you decide to meet up during the day to celebrate February 13th, then definitely know that you have options! If you want to be outdoors, think about a nice hike or even a yoga session on a lawn or at a park. Afterward, make it a picnic, where everyone brings a dish, blanket, and even a bottle of wine.
If being outdoors isn’t your thing, then bring the party indoors! Find a local brunch spot that may be celebrating Galentine’s Day with specials! Play “Secret Galentine” and exchange gifts over Watermelon Hibiscus Mimosas! If brunch is too early, try an early supper. Whatever you decide, make it fun and don’t forget to celebrate!
Want to connect with your gal pals at night? Having a night out is the ultimate Galentine’s day date idea! Paint the town red and party until the sun comes up! Don’t want to be out and about? Keep it cozy and fun with an Adult Pajama Party! Plan for matching PJ’s, pick out some great movies or your favorite series, eat, drink and be merry!
Enjoy Fashionistas! Happy Galentine’s Day!
