February 14th is fast approaching and we’re here to help you have the best one ever, after all, that’s the least you owe to yourself! So, whether you’re happily coupled up, or busy just doing you, we’ve outdone Cupid with our plans for you.
Galentines DayIf you’re doing Valentine's solo this year, why not use it to celebrate your best girls instead?
What Is Galentine's Day?
No longer does February 13th have to be spent worrying about the upcoming romantic celebrations the day after. Thanks to Amy Poehler’s character on Parks And Recreation, the day has had the kind of rebranding we can totally get behind - a day to celebrate friendship!
After all, who said only romantic love can be celebrated? This is the perfect opportunity to ditch the cheesy cards, and massive bouquets and instead gather your best gal pals around for an evening of chocolates and wine.
Galentines BrunchStep one of having the best Galentine's Day is, like how most great days begin, brunch with the ladies!
For brunch, you won’t forget you need to head to your nearest EL&N cafe. Not only is every part of the cafe incredibly Instagrammable, but it also is home of the most delicious pastries, cakes and of course, coffee. This cafe is a pink haven and an absolute must to gather the girls too.
Or if a boozy brunch is more your thing (we’re not judging), find a list of all the hottest boozy brunches that London has got to offer here.
Galentines SleepoverIt wouldn’t be a girl's get together in our eyes if it didn't end in a sleepover! Our ideal Galentine's Day 100% involves lounging indoors with our faves, drinking wine and putting the world to rights. After all, with the current weather, who really wants to leave the house for a night out?
We say this is the perfect opportunity to get into cute PJs, stick on a film and have the ultimate chill night.
Our unicorn sleepover sack is perfect for a good ol’ girls’ night in! Its cute print is feminine and cute, and also comes with sleepwear accessories to assure you the cosiest night ever.
Galentines Gift IdeasWhy not play a game of Secret Cupid? Simply, put names in a hat, and the name picked out is who you buy a gift for. However, unlike Secret Santa, you’ll all end up with gifts you’ll like, appreciate, and actually use. For example, we love this fast food adorned makeup bag. Fries before guys after all.

If that’s not enough then the eclectic English meets Russian menu will be!
