6 Relaxing Ways to Celebrate Galentine's Day in 2023

Galentine’s Day (February 13th)  is a special holiday for celebrating the amazing women in your life. While it’s important to honor and appreciate your friends, it’s also important to practice self-care on this day as well. Here are some great ideas for getting the girls together, as well as how you can take the time to show yourself some love this Galentine's Day

Take a Spa-Inspired Bath

Nothing says relaxation like a warm bath with all the luxurious details. The combination of hot water and aromatherapy can help reduce stress and increase feelings of well-being. Light some candles, turn on your favorite music, add essential oils or salts to the bathwater, and sip refreshing cucumber-infused water. Taking some time to relax and focus on yourself will make all the difference in your mood and outlook. 

Go for a Hike and Get Some Fresh Air 

We often forget that spending time outdoors has many physical and mental health benefits. Whether you go for a walk on the beach, at the lake, or in the mountains to spend some quality time with nature, getting out in the fresh air will boost your energy levels, improve your mood, and clear your head. 

Treat Yourself to Something Special 

Whether it’s buying something like flowers for yourself or indulging in pretty underwear,  a pedicure, or a massage, treating yourself is always a good idea! Being generous with yourself is an important part of self-care and setting aside money specifically for yourself will remind you that you are worth it.

Plan a Girls' Spa Day 

Nothing says “I love you” like a relaxing spa day. You can either plan a group trip to go and get pampered—like getting mani-pedis then going out for lunch afterward—or you can bring the spa to you! Set up an at-home spa retreat with a professional, or go the DIY route and gather all of your favorite face masks, nail polishes and body care products. Play some calming music, and light some candles. Offer healthy snacks and drinks so that everyone can just relax together. 

Host a Ladies' Movie Night 

Sometimes we forget that our friendships need love, too. On Galentine’s Day, take the time to reconnect and appreciate each other with a movie night. Ask each person to bring a snack and then spend the evening like an old-fashioned slumber party. Watch a chick flick, binge Sex and the City, eat popcorn and talk about everything going on in your life. 


Go Out for Brunch  

One of the most popular things to do for women is brunching! Get dressed up in your favorite outfits (maybe even themed or matching ones!) and head out for a delicious brunch with all of your gals. Talk about upcoming plans or just gossip over mimosas. No matter what you do, it will be sure to be an unforgettable experience with your closest friends!  

Galentine's Day is all about celebrating female friendships and showing appreciation for those amazing ladies in our lives who have been there through thick and thin. Whether it's spending quality time together or exchanging small tokens of love, taking part in meaningful activities is sure to leave everyone feeling loved and appreciated. So gather up your besties and start planning the perfect Galentine's celebration, but don't forget your own self-care rituals!                       

It’s important to remember that taking care of ourselves should be our top priority every day of the year—not just on Galentine's Day. Whether it’s taking a break from social media or simply giving yourself permission to relax once in a while, taking steps towards self-love is essential for physical and mental health.
