Who needs a boyfriend or girlfriend to celebrate Valentine's Day? There are many types of love in this world, not just the romantic type. Let's celebrate the bonds we hold with those closest to us, like our best friends and family. Here are 25 Gal-entine's Day ideas that you can do with your friends in celebration.
1. Host a Movie Marathon
Whether you enjoy romantic comedies or horror films, settle down on the couch with some popcorn for a movie night. If you have trouble choosing a film, I would recommend Blended (2014) or Isn't It Romantic (2019) to start off. They are hilarious and always bring a smile to my face.
2. Spa Day
Why not have a spa day to celebrate you and your bff? You could do face masks and paint each other's nails while listening to relaxing music. It would be a great break from the stressful lives we all live.

3. Get Crafty!
Make some memories by completing DIY projects together. You could find a local art class to attend or plan something at home based on your favorite Pinterest posts.
4. Baking Night
Instead of eating store bought candies, get in the kitchen and whip up some Valentine's Day themed treats with your besties. Cooking is more fun when friends are involved!
5. Game Night
Take the time to bust out your favorite board games or your game consoles.

If you can't take a trip to the beach, why not make your house the beach? Spend the night thinking of sand beaches and unruly ocean waves. Decorate your living room and make some tropical drinks.
