6 Ideas For The Perfect Girls’ Night In

By on January 12, 2013

No matter how much you love your husband, there are times when you need to kick back and relax with your girlfriends.

But instead of getting all dolled up and hitting the town, spend some leisurely time at home — by taking advantage of these 6 ideas:

1.  Have a dance party
Go online and find the songs that were popular back when you and your girlfriends were in high school (no matter how long ago that may have been!), and let loose.  Even if it’s been far too long since you graduated, you can feel like a teenager again — without the zits, the awkward crushes, and the impossible math tests!

2.  Host a wine tasting
Since there is so much wine to choose from in Australia, why not buy a bunch of different bottles and have all of your girlfriends try them?  (You can even save some money by asking each girl to bring a bottle that you can all sample.)  That way, you’ll know exactly what you like the next time you’re hosting a dinner party or planning a romantic night with your sweetie.

If you really want this to be a gourmet experience, get some fancy cheese and crackers to go with your wine.  Yum!

3.  Have a spa night
Who says you need to go spend a fortune at a real spa?!  You and your girlfriends can give each other manicures and pedicures right in the comfort of your own home.

If you want your house to feel a little more spa-like, get some candles and some relaxing music to set the scene.

4.  Have a movie night
Your husband may not be willing to sit around and watch all of those sappy chick flicks with you, but your girlfriends will!  Make it even more fun by ordering in all your favorite foods.  In fact, the more calories, the better!

5.  Make it a game night
All of those board games sitting in your closet aren’t just for your kids.  You can gather your girlfriends around for a fun night of Monopoly, Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit, and Clue.  Or, if you want to be really silly, opt for younger games — like Candyland and Chutes and Ladders.  You and your over-worked girlfriends will appreciate that innocent fun!
6.  Take a lesson
Whether you opt for yoga, self-defense, belly dancing, or cooking, there are plenty of professional instructors that you can pay to come to your home and give your small group some lessons.  That way, you can learn something new without having to leave the house!

7. Food Night
Create your own kind of multi-national tapas night, have each of your girlfriends bring in a dish they really like from a foreign country; or order food online from multiple different ethnic eateries.  Be adventurous and try something that you’ve never had before – this brings a lot of fun to the party, and something to talk about in weeks to come!
