Want to throw a galentine’s gifting party? 

We did and it was a b-l-a-s-t. If you don’t – that’s fine, because I’m chatting about not only how to throw a Galentine’s Day party but *also* how to throw yourself your own successful non-fomo Valentine’s night if you’re single like this lady. So sweethearts, what did me and the girls do, you ask? We feasted on heart-shaped waffles, dined in on heart-shaped cinnamon rolls, 2 pizzas – grapefruit mimosas with raspberry embellishments, and sweet treats. All. the. things. Plus, of course, tons of girl chats, Chloe snuggles, dance parties and more. And also gifting. What did we gift? Beauty goodies, most of them under $20–all from Walmart. Don’t believe it? You should check out their Valentine’s Gifting shelf and you’ll be smitten.

Don’t have a ton of gal pals or want to spend the extra dime? What I do on the actual holiday – Valentine’s Day  – (still single b-t-w) is draw myself a bath, bake a few cookies, read a really good book and call it a night. Scroll below for tips and tricks on a single girls’ night – but if you want to throw a little gal pal party too – keep reading. You don’t need to go all out with the balloons and such (I admit it: that was just me getting extra at Party City). Just find a few of your favorite gal pals, gather the girls – grab some sweets, treat foods – and tell each gal to bring a beauty gift from Walmart.

The recipes that will melt your heart:

The gifts for gal pals: 

Highlighter Palette (this is my favorite highlighter palette ever; it works just as well as the designer palettes)

Philosophy Bath & Shower Gel

Matted Lip Gloss – Satin Ribbon

The Cutest Maybelline Gloss – LOVE the packaging and the way it looks!

 

What to gift yourself on Valentine’s if you don’t want to throw a party: 

Draw yourself a bath and get yo’self a spa night:

Philosophy Bath & Shower Gel

Bodycology Sweet Love Fizzy Bath Bombs with Vitamin E

Olay Fresh Reset Pink Mineral Complex Clay Face Mask

Rose Shea Sugar Scrub

And lastly, treat yourself to this pretty Lip Gloss
