Grab your girlfriends and leave your partners at home, we’ve got some amazing ideas for Galentine’s Day this year that you definitely won’t want to miss out on!

What’s Galentine’s Day, you ask? Oh, only the best day of the year! It’s a day for besties to celebrate besties, an opportunity to show your best friends how special they are and shower them with oodles of cheesy cards and candy hearts.

For many of us, Galentine’s Day means going for brunch or hitting up the nearest bar and grabbing a few drinks, but we thought we’d switch things up this year. You can still grab a bite or a drink, plus add on a fun activity you'll remember always.

We’ve put together a list for you and your girlfriends that will not only be a great way to spend some time with each other, but will also give your crew the opportunity to bond over your unique and quirky experiences together. Plus – some activities give you goodies to take home as a memory!

Here are our fav 2023 Galentine’s Day ideas:

Spa Date


Henkaa Galentine's Day Spa Date

An ever-popular choice, the spa can mean so many things these days. You can go for a massages, facials, body scrubs, Turkish baths or Asian-style sauna and therapy. Everyone deserves some self-care - why not spend Galentine's doting on yourself and your friends? Many places also serve delicious food so you can spend the whole day relaxing. 


Make Your Own Jewellery



We found some super cool classes where you can create and design your own jewellery. How cool would it be to book a class with your friends and create a keepsake that you can wear to remind you of the special bond you have? At places like The Devil's Workshop in Toronto, you can do a two hour workshop or take a 6 week course with a friend so you're guaranteed to have more quality time with them and learn something new. 


The Ever-Popular Paint Night



Paint night is always fun - and there are lots of options in just about every city. If you like to have some drinks too, look for an adults-only workshop. Already tried paint night? How about another arts activity like a clay workshop or a mosaic lamp workshop? It’s a great way to get creative and spend time together with lots of laughter and fun.


Get Active with a Dance Class



Get your sweat on and have fun in a group dance class! Depending on how many friends and friends of friends you can gather together, you might even be able to get a private class going. There are so many dance styles to choose from, like hip hop, bollywood, jazz and contemporary - you'll be sure to find something that everyone likes. If you want to go lowkey, you might decide to do a group yoga or mediation class instead. 

Plan a Girls Getaway 



We get it, life can get busy and you might not be able to plan something in the next couple of weeks. But what about planning a trip later in the year? It could be a cottage trip nearby to visit some wineries or a cut your own local flower farm to create beautiful bouquets you can take home, or a big trip to celebrate a milestone birthday. Cozy up with your friends at home, a bevvy of your choice and maybe a Netflix marathon in the background while you plan your fun trip together.


Don’t know what to wear?



Check out our Ivy Convertible Dress! It’s the perfect everyday dress that you can wear out for brunch with the girls, or dress it up and take it out for a night on the town.

You can also take our Dress Quiz to find more suggestions based on what activity to decide on.

Most importantly, take this Galentine’s Day to show your besties how much you love them and spend some well deserved time together.
