Whether you’re single or taken, there’s nothing like spending time with your homegirls. We keep one another together, and we lift each other higher and higher. Our loyal cheerleaders are usually the sister tribe that we’ve chosen to experience different parts of life with, so Valentine’s Day should be no different.

In case you and your crew are looking for some last-minute ideas on how to spend your Valentine’s Day (or weekend), ILY has a few suggestions that lead to fun, relaxation, and the quality time that you always need from your power circle.


We all have a girl gang, so besides showing love and support to each other 24/7/365, what better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than to go on a fancy dinner date with your besties? There will be food, libations, and stories–old and new–to make this night one of your best bonding experiences.


Life can get overwhelming; sometimes we need a break to get some self-care hours in. Get pampered, rest, relax, and relate during a spa day where for two hours it’s all about you and them. No stress.


Whether you order in or do a potluck, grab your favorite pajamas, curl up with your favorite bottle of vino, complete with your Olivia Pope wine glass, and get ready to indulge in your favorite flicks of all time (Dirty Dancing, Clueless, & Two Can Play That Game are musts).


Instead of a night, make it a day of museum hopping. Keep your mind stimulated by taking in some art with your mains. When you’re done, end your field trip at a bomb brunch that’s bottomless because what is brunch without mimosas, Bellinis, and a kiki.


Instead of toasting to the douchebags and assholes, toast to the good life with your friends by taking a day trip to a winery. During a tour, you’ll have time to do a little wine tasting, chat, and truly enjoy each other’s company.
