GALENTINE’S NIGHT IN + GIFT GUIDE.

it’s that time of year again, babes. the time where we forget about boys and celebrate our love for our favorite gals. GALENTINE’S DAY!

now don’t get me wrong, i definitely will be celebrating valentine’s day with the boy, but it’s so so important to celebrate your FRIENDSHIPS. your girlfriends get you through a lot..amiright? seasons of singleness, break ups, break downs, hyping you up at your best and always being there with wine and/or ice cream at your worst.

so, i thought let’s plan the perfect little girl’s night IN for galentine’s day this year. sister brought the snacks, i brought the bubbly and we had a grand ole time!

keep on reading to find out how to create the perfect GALENTINE’S NIGHT IN!

(ps: also threw in a quick lil gift guide for your gals down at the bottom, so scroll for that heheh)

step one: grab your gal(s)

step two: set the mood

where else would you go for CUTE & CHEAP holiday decor if you don’t go to target? okay maybe hobby lobby or etsy, but for this GNI i snagged all this cuteness from target. the “happy gals day” sign, heart garland, to-go boxes, champagne flutes, XO stirrers..legitimately everything.

step three: sips & sweets

it wouldn’t be a proper GNI without snacks right? we grabbed those awful, yet so good sugar cookies, popcorn & m&m’s for the sweet and salty girls, and of course candy. DUH. — also pizza. always a good idea.

i also really wanted to create some sort of signature galentine’s day drink, so if you’re a bubbly kinda girl, listen up. it’s nothing crazy, but so yummy!

bubbly pink drink

just mix a little rose and some sprite, toss in a few raspberries and YOU ARE SET, BABE!

step four: celebrate!

turn on some netflix or go “old school” and pop in a dvd and watch your favorite chick flicks and rom coms! play some card games! catch up with everyone! whatever you want to do to spend some quality time with your gals. 🙂

gift ideas for your GALS!

i’ve linked some PERFECT gifts for your girlfriends down below, but if you’re yearning for more check out my galentine’s post from last year!

T-MINUS ONE WEEK, BABES! is anyone still not done with their christmas shopping? yeah..me too. #YIKES

i’m sharing one more gift guide with y’all today before we officially run out of time. these gifts aren’t only great stocking stuffers, but also secret santa gifts or just for when you’re on a budget!

ENTER: a girl’s guide to stocking stuffers

bandana scarves – wear them as a neck scarf, tie them around a bag, wear it as a belt, or a as a top, YOU NAME IT. such a fun versatile piece and they’re usually under $30! my faves are from madewell & anthropologie!

screen wipes – great for the tech girl in your life. they’re cute and practical to throw in with your laptop or purse and go!

blowout besties gift set – best hair products i’ve ever used & they smell amazing. ’nuff said.

personalized pouch – a cute little gift for any gal with a personalized touch.

face spray – i swear by this spray. a good mid-day refresher. the rose scent is SO NICE.

phone cases – CaseApp is my favorite place to get phone cases because you can customize them to whatever you want! add a favorite quote, color, picture of your boo (or your pup), etc!

BEST eye shadow palette under $20 – no joke. super affordable & crazy pigmented. perfect for the beauty babe in your life.

hair clips – what girl doesn’t need some good hair clippies? i would use these daily to wash my face!

makeup setting spray & beauty sponge – best setting spray. best beauty blending sponge. that it all.

face mask trio – PTR is my FAVE. secretly hoping santa slips this set in my stocking!

two words: bath bombs – never met a babe who didn’t like these fizzy little balls of joy.

PERSONAL trait cuff – a Pieces of Me Co. cuff is another amazing personal gift to give this season. i have the CONFIDENT & STRONG cuffs and love how chic they are while reminding me daily who i am.

two more words: fuzzy socks – a classic stocking stuffer that i feel doesn’t need explaining. 😉
