So, this February, celebrate friendship by going all out for Galentine’s Day. What’s Galentine’s Day, you ask?

It’s all about being with your girls, celebrating friendship and feelin’ the love!

Just grab a Bluetooth mic from Amazon and get ready for the ultimate girls’ karaoke night!

11. Wine Swap and Charcuterie Night

If you have a friend group of not-so-amateur wine connoisseurs, this one’s for you. First, charcuterie boards are a must. That’s a non-negotiable. Second, you’ll need to have a few bottles of wine open to sip on during the swap (not to be confused with the bottles actually being swapped). Now that that’s out of the way, here’s how it works: Everyone brings a wrapped bottle and places it on a table, then picks a number from a hat to determine the order in which they’ll choose. Imagine a White Elephant swap, but with just wine.

12. Galentine’s Gift Exchange

In the same vein, try a classic gift swap at your Galentine’s party. Have everyone bring a gift of a certain price, making sure guests wrap their items before the party. Then, follow the rules of a White Elephant gift exchange. While, of course, being in each other’s presence is a present, it doesn’t hurt to gift your girls something nice every now and then! We’ve included some gift ideas below to get you started.
