Need some inspo to make your next girl’s night in an unforgettable one? You’re in the right place! Here are nine awesome ideas to explore.
When your bestie brings up the idea of a "ladies' night," what typically comes to mind? Do you conjure up bygone images of crop tops, skinny jeans, and more drinks than you can count? Perhaps you envision yourself dancing with your ladies while singing Spice Girls' Wannabe (off-key, of course).
Whatever it is that comes to mind when thinking about spending quality time with the gal pals, let's be honest — there's arguably nothing better than doing it from the comfort of your own home. Ideally, in sweats. With a big tee. And a messy bun to boot.
After all, not every girls' night out has to involve pregaming or puzzling your way out of an escape room. In fact, with a little inspo, you can make your next stay-at-home get-together the perfect girls’ night.
Not sure where to start? The Good Patch has your back! Here are nine girls' night-inideas for an unforgettable ladies' night.
1. Keep Calm and Eat Tacos
Who says tacos are only for Tuesdays? Gather the girls for a night of tacos, dancing, and fun. All you have to do is prep the toppings (think cheese, peppers, lettuce, cilantro, and avocado), whip up the filling, and let everyone serve themselves.
This girls' night idea isn't only easy-peasy to put together, but you really can't go wrong with it either. Besides, who doesn't love a good taco? No friend of ours!
2. Meat and Cheese, Anyone?
Go all out with a fancy-schmancy night — you can even add a cheese board for an extra special treat. Ask your gal pals to bring their favorite mocktails or a block of cheese and spend the evening sipping and nibbling while swapping stories and swiping left.
Pro Tip: Help your besties bounce back after a fun girls’ night in with our Rescue and Revive Patch. Made with science-backed ingredients like green tea extract and B vitamins, these patches will leave you and your crew feelin' like a million bucks!
3. Throw an Epic Spa Night
An impromptu trip to the spa can come with a pretty hefty price tag. Luckily, you can get all the pampering of a spa day from the comfort of your own home with the help of a few of your closest girlfriends and a sheet mask or two.
Here are a few activities you can try:
- DIYFace Masks: For ladies with dry skin, mix honey and aloe vera for an ultra-hydrating mask. Dealing with inflammation? Combine freshly-brewed green tea, honey, and lemon. Working with oily skin? Make a soothing mask with honey, olive oil, and oatmeal.
- Calming Patches: Unwind, decompress, and summon those calming vibes with our Be Calm patch. Turn up the tunes, slap on a few cucumbers, and let the chill times roll.
- Mani Pedis: Bring out your favorite nail polishes and set up a mini nail salon. Take turns painting each other's nails; everyone will leave feeling prettier than when they first arrived!
- Aromatherapy: Toss in a few drops of your favorite essential oil into a diffuser to set the mood. Rose is fantastic to combat tension, lavender can bring on the sleepies, eucalyptus will leave everyone relaxed, and peppermint is especially soothing.
4. Netflix and Eat Pizza
Netflix and Chill? How about Netflix and ‘Za? Now, that's something we can get behind!
A pizza party is a perfect ladies' night idea — and there's no wrong way to do it. You can order in a few boxes from the local hot spot down the road or even make it DIY with a bunch of plain pizzas for each friend to load up with toppings.
Going with the latter? This ain't no children's party! Stock up on all the fancy toppings to level up these pies. Think:
- Brie, beets, and honey
- Pear and arugula with a sprinkle of goat cheese
- Fresh mozzarella, basil, and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar
- Heirloom tomatoes and pesto
- Canadian bacon, pineapple, and jalapenos
When it comes to pizza, the sky's the limit. Go crazy with toppings, taste each other's creations, and end the night with happy bellies. Top it off with everyone’s favorite rom com, and you’ve got the perfect movie night!
5. Get Fancy With Tea
If you don't want to hit the town but you're still hoping for an excuse to wear that new dress and floppy hat you bought — host a tea party!
Clean out that humble teapot you've used as a trendy flower vase and fill it with some Oolong tea or Earl Grey. While you and your besties bake scones, assemble finger sandwiches, eat crumpets, and share gossip, put on some classical music to level up the fancy.
Oh, and don't forget, pinkies out!
6. Host a Game Night
Gang up with your gals and spend a fun evening playing games and cracking jokes. This ladies' night idea will surely bring on the nostalgia — especially if you play games like Clue, Candyland, Yahtzee, Monopoly, Guess Who?, Sorry!, and The Game of Life.
Prefer to take a modern approach? Check out games like Cards Against Humanity, Exploding Kittens, and Apples to Apples.
You can even play some old-schoolgirls’ night games like truth or dare, trivia, or would you rather. Round out the night with classics like karaoke night or a dance party. With your best girlfriends, everything’s a blast!
Whichever games you choose, you're bound to make some awesome memories and share lots of laughs.
7. The Great Ladies' Night Bake Off
Who needs Paul Hollywood when you can host a bake-off from the comfort of your own kitchen (we do #EyeCandy)? Rally up the troops for a night of baking fun with "The Great Ladies' Night Bake Off!"
Invite friends to whip up their favorite baked treats ahead of time or take turns sharing your oven to make drool-worthy goodies together.
Want to make things interesting? Throw a competitive element into the mix! Whoever makes the best creation gets to pick which movie to watch. Or better yet, they win a prize like the Essentials Set — our plant-powered set of patches for celebrating good times.
You don’t need to limit yourself to sweet bakes, either — even Prue Leith knows that sweet goes best with savory. Find a few YouTube tutorials to turn your bake-off into a group cooking class, or swap the baking tins for some fondue. Either way, you’re sure to have the best girls’ night ever.
8. Don the PJs
If you ask us, one of the best benefits of keeping the party at home is that you can don your comfiest pajamas and not worry about getting booted for the dress code. Need we say more?
Ask your friends to show up wearing their comfyPJs, slippers, and no makeup. Yep, fresh faces only. If you're up to it, you can even turn the pajama party into a low-keysleepover.
Sing karaoke, play board games, watch movies, eat takeout, and forget you're adults for a night. Just remember the coffee and donuts for the morning after!
Pro Tip: Give your besties a pep in their step after a night of fun and festivities with our Rise and Shine Wellness Patches! Made with love and tried and true ingredients, your crew will be super appreciative of the thoughtful gesture.
9. Ice Cream Social
"I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!"
Make the night extra special with a drool-worthy, diet-breaking ice cream bar. Everyone likes their favorite dairy treat a little different, so gather a few flavors (think chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry), and lots of tasty toppings — here are some of our favs:
- Hot fudge
- Cookie dough
- Whipped cream
- Fresh fruit
- Chopped nuts
No boys guilt allowed!
