If you want to spoil your girlfriends (and yourself!) rotten on Galentine’s Day this year, we’ve rounded up some over-the-top ideas, courtesy of renowned event planner Marcy Blum and HomeGoods:

Make it a cozy movie night. February can be one of the coldest months of the year, so make sure your Galentine’s Day celebration delivers on all the cozy vibes,” Marcy says. She suggests heading to HomeGoods for super affordable and adorable décor to plush up your space like faux fur and knit blankets, pillows and velvet poofs for cuddling up with your best gals for a girl power movie marathon.

Beautify your beverage. Bring your Rosé game and serve everyone’s favorite wine in a “instagramable” way, like blush and gold wine glasses accompanied by a fun reusable curly straw. “You can grab both at HomeGoods for a total of $10!” she says.

Serve up the self-care. Indulge your guests and create an at-home spa station of goodies including lavender essential oils, luxurious soap petals, aromatherapy eye masks, fuzzy faux fur slippers and bath bombs – all which you can find at HomeGoods for prices better than you’d find at your spa.

Set out sweet treats. And don’t forget good snacks! “Make sure your guests have something to nibble on throughout the evening,” Marcy advises. In addition to the savory ones, find unique sweet treats at HomeGoods for under $5, such as lipstick shaped chocolate bars or sour pink and red gummies. Plus, grab some, on theme ceramic serving bowls to display them in!

Personalize the space. “Make your girl gang feel extra special by printing out your favorite photos together to frame around the space.” Aw, how sweet. Marcy suggests grabbing beautiful frames that will add to the décor.

Go big with game night. A little friendly competition never hurt anyone! HomeGoods has a variety of classic board games, as well as, fun options that are just for the girls, like #GirlsNightIn trivia.

Always thank your girl gang. At HomeGoods, find heart-filled ceramic mugs, reusable tumblers and mercury glass champagne-scented candles to gift your best gals as a thank you for celebrating the evening with you!
