Galentine’s Day :: Let’s Celebrate our Gal Pals!


Valentine’s Day is a great day to celebrate the ones you love. This could include your significant others, children, parents, or your friends—especially your gal friends! Whether you all decide to stay in or go out, I have some ideas that can spice up your Galentine’s Day.

Places To Go: 

High Point Climbing and Fitness Birmingham

4766 US-280, Birmingham, AL 35242

Climb with your friends and become a part of the strong community of female climbers! The month of February will include heart themed challenges. 

The Hive

1006 20th Street South Birmingham, AL 35205

$14 Mimosa Pitchers? SAY LESS! They also have arcade games such as duckpin bowling, pool, shuffleboard, golden tee, and claw machines. If you go for Galentine’s day you can pay just $10 for all you can play arcade games. 

Corbin Farms Winery

800 Co Rd 87, Calera, AL 35040

This is one of the cutest wineries I have been to! There are constantly Groupons so check that out before you head over there. If you love wine, or just want to relax and listen to live music by a fire, then this is the place for you. It’s so cute (great for picture ops), and it’s child friendly (they have an amazing slushy for the kids). 


2908 Riverview Rd, Birmingham, AL 35242

Sunday Fun Day: After 6 p.m., bowling games are $2.99. They also have a half-off deal for arcade cards. Bowling is so much fun, especially when you are just hanging out with your friends! There’s nothing wrong with a little friendly competition, especially with games this cheap.

At Home Activities:

Sip and Paint

Go to the dollar stores to get cheap canvases and paint. Everyone can bring their own bottle of wine to your house, then you can all spend the evening playing some good music and painting away. 

Game Night

Do you need game recommendations? Well I have some for you! Some of my favorite games are Yahtzee, Monopoly, Phase 10, Trouble, and Never Have I Ever. Or, everyone could bring a game and you can all challenge each other to your favorites!

Movie Night

These are some Rom Coms I recommend that you can find on Netflix. 

  • The Half of It
  • Holidate
  • The Kissing Booth
  • Five Feet Apart
  • When We First Met
  • Someone Great 

Pick one (or a few), get some popcorn, candy and snacks at the Dollar Store, then sit back and relax while you all cry and laugh together. 

I hope you have a Happy Galentine’s Day! Go all out to celebrate your gal pals. Where would we be without our girlfriends that cheer us on, laugh with us until our bellies hurt and dry our tears? It’s time to celebrate them and our friendships.
