After a long and tiring week, wouldn’t it be a great idea to just relax and unwind with your girlfriends? Go to the movies, have dinner, celebrate with drinks, have a fun night, or maybe sing your heart out in karaoke bars?

But in these times, it can still be a bit hard to go out and celebrate as there may be places that are closed or not allowed to go. It can also be a hassle to go out and wear masks or some, at some point, bars and restos may close early due to some restrictions.

With that in mind, how do you relax and have fun with your girlfriends?

Fortunately, there are ways that you can do to have an enjoyable and relaxing girls’ NIGHT IN! Yes, instead of going out, plan a great night in the comfort of your home.

And don’t look further! Here are amazing night-in ideas to keep you relaxed while enjoying yourself with your girlfriends.

Spa night

Who doesn’t want to have a relaxing spa after a week of stress and tons of work? I do! To create your spa night and make it as tranquil and relaxing as possible, be sure to prep the area where you will have your spa.

Tidy up the main areas of your home such as the bathroom, living room, and kitchen. Vacuum and mop your floors and make sure that all dishes are washed and kept in their designated places. Clear out a space on the kitchen or dining table where you can lay out your snacks.

Prepare your foot spa machine and add some essential oils or salts. Light some candles and play some soothing music to start the spa session.

Chick flick Movie Night

No date night movies? Create it in your own home. Spend enjoyable nights watching the movies you’ve missed or want to reminisce with your friends. If that’s not enough, do a TV series marathon as well. Pop up some popcorn in the oven and have some refreshing drinks on the side.

Cooking Night

Realise your dream to be a chef – even just for the night. Busy moms will definitely love this idea as you and your girlfriends cook your hearts out. Experiment and try out new recipes that you’ve been dying to cook for ages. Exchange tips and tricks with your girlfriends as you perfect your favourite recipe – and who knows, you might be the next Masterchef!

And while you are at it, open a bottle of wine and share it with your girlfriends as well!

Be artsy and crafty

I am not a very artsy nor crafty person but it is such a relaxing treat to create and tinker on different things. Do projects that are interesting with your friends like candle-making, creating a bag, or some cute clothes for your pet companion.

What’s great about this idea? It is always interesting how the project turns out and see if this can turn not just a hobby but maybe something you can earn with as well.

Do a food tasting party

Ditch that diet for a while and have some delicious foods prepared. Ask your girlfriends to bring foods that are their specialty or better yet pick a  food theme for the night. You may choose different cuisines such as Italian, Korean, Japanese, barbecue, or anything that you fancy. But of course, food will not be complete without any booze, right? Add a few cans of beer, wine, or other beverages that you fancy and enjoy like crazy.

Host a book club night

If you love reading then this is something you can try. Host a book club and pick a book that you all agreed to read prior to the scheduled night in. On that night, as you get together, you can discuss the book, have some snacks and drinks while spending the night and catching up with your friends. The best thing about a book club, it can be a regular schedule that you and your girlfriends can do once or twice a month.

Give each other a makeover

What’s the best way to bond but exchange skincare and beauty tips with your girlfriends, right? Admit it, your friend may be way better than you when it comes to choosing the right OOTDs or doing makeup. So, how about ransacking your wardrobe, experimenting, and playing dress-up? Remember those days when you were a teenager and going through your mum’s things just to try it out? Oh, those memories!

While you are at it, take a photo of each look and post them on your social media account. Who knows, you may be hiding the talent of being a model.

Chat the entire night away

Catching up with your girlfriends is the best way to end the busy week. Chat with your friends or better yet, ask them to stay the night so you can have more time to talk and get to know what your friends have been doing for the past week.

Of course, a few finger foods and drinks will always be a part of that relaxing, perfect night. And believe me, time will simply fly so fast that you don’t even notice that it was time for you to go to bed.
