Thanks to Leslie Knope’s endless witticisms and wisdom on Parks and Recreation, we now have Galentine’s Day - an entire day to celebrate our most powerful and long-lasting friendships! According to Leslie, February 14th is for romance but February 13th is for the ladies (and we agree, it should be a national holiday).
Instead of being stressed out about Valentine’s Day, celebrating Galentine’s Day with your friends is the perfect way to actually have a fun, zero-pressure day to celebrate the amazing women in your life.
13 Ways to Celebrate Galentine’s Day
Here are 13 different ways you can celebrate the best day of the year with your gal pals!
Join Sips by's Galentine's Murder Mystery Virtual Tea Party With Your Bestie!
Join us Monday, February 13, 2023 from 12-1 pm CST for Sips by's Virtual Galentine's Murder Mystery Tea Party! If you and your besties are tea-lovers, join us for a killer tea party as we sip tea together over Zoom and solve a spooky mystery.

Pizza + Movie + Wine Party
When you’re with friends you don’t need much else to have a good time. Keep it simple and fun for Galentine’s Day by ordering a pizza, pouring some wine, and watching a movie together.
Galentine’s Spa Day
Get your gals together for a spa day out! Or, treat yourself to a relaxing Galentine’s with at home manis, pedis, and face masks while you chat.
Host a Virtual Game Night
Find an app to help you and your friends pay your favorite game online, or enter a virtual trivia contest!
Galentine’s should be all about what you and your gal pals want to do. If you're interested in wine, why not visit a winery or take a wine tasting class together, so you're all that much more knowledgeable.
Have a Paint Party
All you need are a few blank canvases, brushes, and paint to channel your inner Bob Ross.
Host a Galentine's Brunch
Take a page out of Leslie Knope's handbook and start Galentine's Day off right by sharing brunch with all of your gal pals - because who doesn’t love bottomless mimosas, obviously.
A Leslie-approved waffle breakfast is a fun and easy way to celebrate Galentine’s. Whip up a bunch of heart-shaped waffles and decorate them with different toppings like fresh fruit, chocolate chips, or whipped cream! Eating waffles with your friends feels like a great way to honor Galentine's this year, when we can't be together.
Pick up a few succulents and have a crafty planter party for Galentine’s Day. You can buy mini planters, or use things around your house (like cute teacups or tea and coffee tins!) for a creative DIY. Everyone can use what they already have around the house, or you can even get supplies from your favorite nursery.
Dance Your Cares Away
Your besties won’t judge you! Let loose, blast your favorite female powerhouse tunes, and dance your worries away.
White Elephant Exchange (with weird gifts from your exes!)
We’ve all been given a gift at some point that just missed the mark. See who received the weirdest gift and throw a white elephant party for you and your friends on Galentine’s Day. And if you don’t have any of those weird gifts from your ex anymore, you can use any strange gift you’ve received that you just don’t know what to do with.
