There is nothing better than taking a break from all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season to spend some quality time with your girlfriends.
Everyone is so busy throughout the holiday season and it’s hard to make time to see your friends. Clear your schedule for one night, invite your best gal pals over and enjoy some fun holiday activities. If all the ladies don’t feel comfortable gathering, turn the girls’ night into a virtual gathering.
Everyone has some sort of holiday pajamas in their closet — time to dig them out and get comfy for the ultimate girls night. If you want to take it one step further, have all the guests get matching holiday loungewear.
One of the best ways to get into the holiday spirit is by listening to Christmas music or watching beloved holiday movies. No matter your music streaming service, there are bound to be playlists with all the classics, including “Jingle Bells” or “All I Want for Christmas.”
If movies are more your thing, Freeform will play classics all December long.
While you have the holiday classics going, take some time to do holiday crafts. One that is a little time consuming, but easy and worth the effort, is making your own wreath. If this seems like too much for your group, try making your own ornaments instead.
Snacks are an important part of any night in. Have everyone bring holiday cookies for a cookie swap, or everyone brings their favorite snacks and dips for the gang to enjoy.
If all the ladies are of age, don’t forget the holiday-themed cocktails, like mulled wine or eggnog — these aren’t for everyone, but it’s always nice to have the classics as backups.
