How to Plan the Best Galentine’s Day | Party Ideas and More  

Just yesterday it seemed like we were all getting ready to celebrate the new year, and yet now it’s already February. That means Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Don’t worry, you still have time to put something together.

If you’re looking to spend some important time with your gal pals, don’t forget the ever popular Galentine’s Day. Whatever day you decide to celebrate, if you’re looking for some party ideas for a group, or some date ideas for a couple, here are a handful of things you can do at home or around town.

Wine, Chocolate and French Fry Movie Night

Why not make it a girl’s night? And, while you’re at it, why not include some kind of a theme? Have all your gal friends bring over a bottle of their favorite wine, and then share the wine with everyone.

Toss in some much required chocolate, because, after all, it is a Valentine’s Day party for you and your friends and you can’t have such a party without chocolate. And then, to top it all off, order eegee’s ranch fries for delivery right before the movie starts. Nothing pairs better than something sweet and something salty.

Painting and Drinking

Who says you have to go to some sort of class to paint and have a drink? Sure, you could go out and book yourself an evening at one of the local wine and painting locations, but it’s going to be busy, and you’ll end up sitting around strangers you may not actually want to spend time with. Instead, why not just set up a painting and drinking evening at your home?

There are pre-stretched canvases available at any local arts and crafts store, and you can pick up starter paint sets as well. You may even want to consider buying larger amounts of paint, because if you end up having fun, you can always schedule future painting evenings.

The best part about having your own painting and drinking party is you can pick your beverage of choice. Maybe you’re not a wine person. Perhaps you’d much rather crack open a beer. You could even order an eegee’s Fun Pak and then use it as the base of a delicious frozen cocktail.

The beauty of this activity is it doesn’t need to be specifically for Galentine’s Day. It can also be an excellent Valentine’s Day activity.

Secret Galentine’s Cupid/White Elephant

Secret Santa gift exchanges are so overdone. Why not instead do a secret Galentine’s gift exchange? With this, you can put together a fun gift bag for one of your friends. Just make sure to place a price tag on however much you all feel like spending and then have fun with it.

You can also do the classic white elephant gift exchange, where everyone brings a random wrapped gift and then guests take turns picking out a present. You can add this activity on top of other party games you have planned for the night. It’s a fun way to break up the movie night festivities and to jump start the festivities if things start to die down a bit. Who knows. Maybe even bring an eegee’s gift card. Might end up being the best item available.

Try Something Totally Different

Who says you have to do the ordinary dinner date for Valentine’s Day? Oftentimes it’s the thought that counts, so why not think outside of the box? February is the perfect time to get outside in Arizona, and there are all kinds of activities you can book to really elevate your V-Day game in 2022.

There are plenty of horse riding activities you can book throughout the state. Whether you look it up on Trip Advisor or you head out to Groupon, you may be surprised as to how many horse riding activities there are.

Or maybe you opt for a hot air balloon ride, or you simply grab a sack full of quarters and head to the arcade. The fact is, you know your significant other better than anyone else, so what would they have fun doing?

If they are an avid gamer, then definitely head out to the arcade. There’s just something about a quarter-fed machine that brings back all kinds of nostalgia. Or maybe they love animals. In this case, you can go to one of the outdoor wildlife locations found in metro Phoenix and Tucson, or you can donate some of your time to spend with dogs and cats at a local animal shelter.

Don’t want to spend a lot on one date? Plan a picnic at the park. You don’t have to spend loads of money to have a great Valentine’s Day. Grab some eegee’s on the way to your picnic spot. It’s all about creating a memory and experiencing the moment, and that’s something you can do without breaking the bank.

Or Skip it all and Grab eegee’s

Maybe you just don’t feel like going out and planning an elaborate and cute party. If that’s the case, why not just plan an eegee’s date?

Whether you have a significant other and both of you would rather avoid the crowds over at The Cheesecake Factory, or you and your best friend want to have a low-key Galentine’s Day date, head on over to eegee’s. You can make it as special as you want to – flowers are a nice touch!

From grabbing a quick meal on the way home to ordering a feast of grinders and fries, eegee’s has your back. So make this Valentine’s and Galentine’s day your own and include some food from the legendary local fast food destination.

What!?! FREE eegee’s? Yes!
