So, it's your turn to host the monthly "Girls Night", and you have no clue what to do? You do not want to invest a lot of time or money, but you do want everyone to enjoy themselves. Well, take a deep breath and relax. Several girls were asked for their favorite suggestions, and here are the five ideas that topped the list.
1. Watching Movies
Who does not like a good movie? And since this is a girls' night, "chick flicks" are a definite must (you know – the kind with laughter, tears, and of course, romance). It does not have to be expensive either. Movie rental costs are very reasonable, so you can pick up several and allow your friends to choose. And, chances are, one of the girls already owns a great video that everyone 'just has to watch'. Of course, most girls will talk about the movie (or, most likely the movie's lead actor) for hours afterwards, making this a low stress, easy- to- plan option. So pop some popcorn, dump some chips in a bowl, kick back, and enjoy.
No girls' night guide would be complete without including a trip to the mall. Girls are the queens of shopping – and who wardrobe does not need to be updated, especially after flipping through those fashion magazines to learn the latest styles and trends. The mall is the perfect 'girls' night' destination since it is complete with everything necessary to enjoy a great evening, and a variety of stores to suit everyone's individual tastes. You can purchase that amazing pair of shoes, expand your music and movie collection, or buy your favorite niece a birthday gift. You can even stop for dinner or a snack at the food court. And the bonus? If you do not have any money, you can simply have fun modeling all those glamorous outfits and giggling with the girls. So pack up the crew, pool the gas money, and head for a mall near you!
If you want to do something entertaining and active, bowling is the perfect choice. It is one of those activities that you do not really have to be good at to enjoy, and it also allows for a lot of socializing in a relaxed environment. Since most girls are there for the fun – and likely will not take the scores or the competition seriously – you'll soon find that everyone is laughing, talking, and probably acting just a little bit silly. Bowling is also quite inexpensive, so a couple of games, even with shoe rentals and snacks, still makes this an affordable girls' night choice.
I know what you are thinking, "Does not that get a little old?" Never! Make-up, hair and nail fashions change as quickly as clothing styles, and there are always new things to try. If you are feeling especially daring, you can add a few little twists and make a game of it. For example, one girl can volunteer to be the "model" and bravely allow her blindfolded friends to apply her makeup. For extra fun, after the make-over is complete, dare her to walk down the street, or go to the store. Girls' night make-overs are also a good opportunity to get that manicure, pedicure, or facial that you've been wanting without paying spa prices. And this is a safe, friendly environment; so be creative and experiment with new colors and styles. You just might discover a brand new you!
There is no way around it, it is a universal truth – girls like to talk. You can be sure that no matter what activity you choose for the evening, it will be filled with conversation, so do not over plan. There are also several games that involve girls' favorite past time of secret sharing and juicy details. Try a friendly game of Truth. Call out the name of one of the girls and ask her a question. She has no choice but to answer. Once she has answered, she can challenge someone else. The game continues like this for as long as you like. There are some rules, though. Remember that this is a friendly game, so be considerate and do not ask questions that will cause embarrassment or hurt, or require derogatory comments about others. And of course, all secrets are confidential and must remain in the group. Some of the most memorable girls' nights can simply be crawling into your pj's and talking until you fall asleep mid-sentence. And the best part is that it will not cost you a cent.
So, whether you are having your friends over, or going somewhere as a group, planning a girls' night does not have to be expensive or stressful. Just choose your favorite activity, and enjoy a fun evening of laughter, conversation, and good friends.
