Galentine's Day Ideas

Galentine's Day Ideas

The demands & responsibilities of everyday life, don't always make it easy to catch up with your closest friends (and let’s be honest, FaceTime is just not the same).

Since GALentine's Day is almost here (and we’re Huge fans of Galentines Day), we want to make celebrating you & your friends a little easier with a round-up-list of Galentine's Day ideas. Sure, this “holiday” is entirely made-up, but it’s a great opportunity to celebrate your friendships in all their forms.

Galentine's Day came about thanks to a 2010 episode of Parks and Recreation, where Leslie Knope (a fictional character) gathers a group of her closest gal pals for a brunch full of waffles and love. “Every February 13, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home and we just come and kick it, breakfast style,” Leslie says in the episode. “Ladies celebrating ladies.” The episode was naturally called “Galentine's Day”.
So here are some ideas:


Grab some nail polishes (HOT TIP: trending colors this spring are soft lilac, canary yellow, hot pink & sky blue). Also grab a pair of (chilled) VREA eye masks, some snacks, drinks, get some candles going or a diffuser (for aromatherapy), turn on the girls-playlist and have yourself a Galentine's for the books!


If 2020 brought anything to us in terms of viewing behavior, it was binge-watching. Grab the snacks, the wine or mocktails, fire up the popcorn, get a few cozy blankets ready and push PLAY. Some of our favorite movies are: Clueless, Legally Blonde (1, not 2), The Other Woman, Devil Wears Prada, Pretty Woman, Along Came Polly, The Proposal and 50 First Dates.  


Planning a dinner always seems to be more difficult with everyone’s schedule and such, doesn’t it? So why not do brunch instead? Mimosas, catching-up time, a plate half-full with veggies (because we love taking care of our gut), how could the day possibly start any better?!


Literally one of our favorite things to do because the two go really well together. Loading up on Resveratrol won’t turn us into overnight Picassos, but you’ll have a heck of a time doing this.


You can go to a class, or you can "host" one in your home or outdoors. Listen to music, get the body moving and the blood pumping. Friends who work out together, stay together.


If you haven’t gone karaoke yet, you are missing out!
Karaoke parties are prime for creating amazing memories.
Purchase your own microphone and karaoke set, or go to a karaoke club. Either way, it’s looking like an amazing time ahead for you and your friends.


Lastly… in a digital world, physical mail has become a luxury. How would you feel if You got a care package from a friend? Pretty amazing, right? If you can do that for a friend this year, here are some ideas: throw in some herbal tea, a box of VREA eye masks (of course!), a candle, bath bomb, a coloring book or mindfulness cards, and of course a note of love.


Share the gift of good, hydrated skin, by gifting your friend(s) a box of VREA eye masks. You know they’ll LOVE IT & right now when you buy ONE box, get a second box FREE. Offer ends Wednesday, February 9th.
