Reading Time: 2 minutes

If you’re single this year, and feeling a bit down about Valentine’s day, gather a group of your friends and celebrate Galentine’s Day! Use this as a time to celebrate not just romantic relationships, but platonic ones too. 


  1. Fun Snacks

The first way you can celebrate Galentine’s Day this year is by making a bunch of Valentine’s themed snacks. Chocolate covered strawberries, mocktails (or cocktails), heart-shaped pancakes, the possibilities are endless!

2. Pajama Party

Why go out on Valentine’s Day when you can just stay home? Invite your friends over for a pajama party! Treat it like a middle school slumber party! Make snacks, watch movies, gossip, and just let yourself have fun. 

3. Movies

Whether you’re single or taken, Gal

entine’s is a perfect opportunity to watch a bunch of romance movies with

your friends. You can laugh together, cry together, and have a good time. Remember, this holiday is about spending time with and cherishing the people you love.

4. Order Out

One of the best parts of Valentine’s Day is treating yourself and a loved one to dinner. So even if you’re with some friends, eat out! Either by going to a restaurant or ordering in, celebrate Galentine’s Day by not cooking. Give yourself a break. You deserve it!

5. Go out!

There’s also no need to stay in on Valentine’s, gather your friends and hit the town! Get dressed up, explore the city, try a new place to eat, go dancing-there are so many different ways to have fun with the girls this month!


Overall, remember that Valentine’s isn’t only about celebrating romantic love, but all love. Friends, family, pets…use this day to celebrate them all, and value the impact they’ve made on your life. Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
