With so many unique plans to choose from, like having a Bridgerton-themed tea night or taking an online dance class, you may be overwhelmed. But, the goal is to have fun, and you can't go wrong with any of these ideas.
Everyone can vote for their favorite virtual Galentine’s Day idea, or you can consider what your group has been gossiping about. If everyone’s been gushing over the new To All The Boys movie that drops on Netflix on Feb. 12, plan a themed movie night to stream it at the same time. If the group votes to spend Galentine's Day sipping and savoring, enjoy a wine tasting. Each friend can pair their fave glass of wine with different chocolates and share their thoughts with the group. Or, if dancing is on everyone’s mind, consider taking a virtual dance class where the squad can learn some smooth moves to show off on TikTok.
Since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests celebrating holidays virtually to prevent potentially catching and/or spreading the coronavirus, you already know everyone will be safe in their own homes. You just need some inspo from these eight unique virtual Galentine's Day ideas so you can firm up the rest of the party plan. Then, sit back and enjoy many laughs together.
