Everything You Need for a Galentine’s Night In

WINTER 2018
By Wendy Rose Gould for Modern Muse

You could throw all your money at a three-course dinner at a five star restaurant, or drag yourself to an extravagant party for Valentine's Day. Alternatively, you could cozy up for an evening indoors with the girls watching movies, baking treats and pampering yourself with much needed chill time. Whether you're single or attached, a V-Day lover or hater, there's no denying that a sleepover-style Galentine's Day party is a great way to spend an evening. To help you jump-start the planning process, we rounded up the items that'll make the night even sweeter!

Sugar Cookies & Cute Platter

Snacks are a must for any get-together, and what better food to eat on Valentine's Day than sweet sugar cookies? Make them even more holiday-appropriate via some love-themed silicone cookie stamps, available at Williams Sonoma. The imprints come in a set of three, so you and your girlfriends can stamp together (or you can prep beforehand if you prefer). Once the baked treats are ready, display them on a cute Valentine's Day platter.

Pink-Hued Face Mask

While waiting for those cookies to bake, you might as well throw on a nourishing face mask. Boscia's Luminizing Pink Charcoal Mask is approved for all skin types, including sensitive. It's bright pink — rendering it ideal for a smattering of V-Day selfies — and utilizes activated charcoal to detox, purify and brighten.

Chic Robe

Your favorite sweats are great, but you'll be even more comfortable lounging around in a chic robe. This kimono-style number from Anthropologie is a deep red with pink embroidery and can be worn over a camisole, nightgown or alone. We like the idea of matching robes for all the gals, but an assortment can be equally as cute!

Cozy Throw

You've got the kimono and cookies, but you know you're all going to want to cuddle under a soft blanket once you press play on Netflix. Kate Spade's Seaport Throw — available in this dusty pink and five other hues — features a sophisticated knotted lattice and tassel trim, and will definitely keep you warm and cozy. Get it at Nordstrom.

Nail Polish Set

A mani/pedi is a classic sleepover activity for a reason. It's fun, therapeutic, allows you to chat or chill while you're painting your nails, and you get to walk away feeling extra pretty. For a Galentine's night in, you'll want to have options. Try this Ciaté London Nail Polish collection from Sephora, which features six glittery, shimmeryand neutral shades and comes packaged in an adorable snow globe.
