What Can You Do On Galentine’s Day?

Galentine’s Day is all about spending time with your gal pals and enjoying the comfort that friendship brings.

If states and countries separate you, opt for a virtual hangout. Use a virtual platform to play trivia games, host a watch party, or catch up on conversations and moments you've missed. There are many different ways to hang out with your girlfriends, even if you can't get the group together for an evening celebration.

If your friends are available to meet in person, take the opportunity to go out for brunch on an upcoming morning! A delicious waffle and mimosa combination will forever be a hit. If you don't have time to meet during the morning for brunch, opt to meet up in the evening or on the weekend to spend time together making arts and crafts, see a romantic comedy in theaters, take a local vineyard tour, or shop until you drop at local boutiques. The possibilities are endless.
