Galentine's Day 2021: 5 Unique Ways To Celebrate Female Friendships
1/5 Build A Time Capsule
Celebrate your friendship with a virtual time capsule!
Compile all your best and worst photos, from the millions of 2020 Zoom screenshots to holiday snaps that didn't make it onto Instagram and blurry pictures of nights out, and reminisce on all the milestones celebrated together and apart.
Whether you decide to open the time capsule next Galentine's Day or 10 years from now, the journey of building one together will make you appreciate your friendships more than ever.
2/5 Clear Out Your Closets Together
If you and your friends, like many others, spent most of 2020 engaging in much-needed online retail therapy, your closets are in much need of a ruthless Marie Kondo-style clearing out.
Recreate that scene of Carrie Bradshaw's walk down memory lane of her most iconic Sex and The City looks as she cleared out her apartment, stage a virtual fashion show for your friends to get their opinions on what to axe and what to keep.
But caution: this activity may unearth outfits borrowed that have not been returned for weeks, months or even decades.
3/5 Delve Into The Mystic Arts
From tarot card readings to astrological exploration, the mystical art of divination can bring you and your circle of friends closer together. Consult an expert online or explore this mysterious world together.
Whether you are learning about your rising sun or drawing The High Priestess tarot card, this activity will allow you to have open and meaningful conversations about what the future holds, which relationships to nurture, and how to manifest personal goals.
4/5 Sip And Art
It is important to have a creative outlet to de-stress from the horrors of existing during a pandemic, not to mention the added (and unnecessary) pressure put on single women just trying to live their lives in the month of February.
Plan a virtual get-together with your girlfriends to express your feelings through art, whether it is painting, nail art, crocheting or colouring. And of course, a good bottle of wine is essential to get the creative juices flowing.
5/5 Bring Out Your Planners
Have you always talked about starting a podcast, planning an exotic holiday, or even building a business together with your girls but nothing ever materialises?
If 2020 has taught us anything, it is that now is as good a time as any to start manifesting your goals. This Galentine's Day, sit down with your friends and make a plan.
Not only will you set the tone for a more optimistic and purposeful year ahead, you and your friends will also be flipping the tired stereotypes depicting single girls sobbing into a box of chocolate nearing Valentine's Day.
