Valentine's Day is the perfect time to have an all-out girl night. Themes can run the gamut, but here are a few ideas to start with:
Popcorn and Chick Flicks
This one is about as cliché as the spa idea, but we'd be remiss if we didn't include it. We do, however, suggest you skip the more contemporary movies such as Bridget Jones's Diary and go for the classics. Gone With the Wind or Breakfast at Tiffany's, anyone?
Voodoo Doll Making
How cathartic would it feel to stab needles into a voodoo doll representing that boy who broke your heart in college or the high-school cheerleader who stole your boyfriend? Not the malicious type? Great! Use your doll to attract love or healing instead. (Note: Dolls can be homemade or bought at a local craft store.)
"Stitch 'n' bitch" nights were en vogue a few years back, about the time that knitting circles made their comeback. Consider having a craft night at home that could also include scrapbooking, beading or jewelry making. Share your mad skills - and cool materials - with the group.
Book It, Baby
You meant to do it for a New Year's resolution and didn't quite make it. February is a great time to start a book club. Brew some joe or hot chocolate for your fellow bookworms, start your book lists and plan your meetings. (There's that extra incentive to stay in bed on Saturday mornings with a good book - hooray!)
