Now that you have a perfect gift picked out for your bestie, it’s time to have a gift exchange! Here are some of our favorite ideas for a girls night in!

-Facials are a must! Here is a list of great different homemade masks you and your bestie can make!

-Bust out the chick flicks. Ok this is a no brainer. There will be no guys around and no better time to indulge in favorites like The Notebook, Pretty Woman, Clueless, and Sex and the City.

-Have everyone bring their own appetizer. This will not only offer a lot of variety, it will limit the work load for the hostess! Have everyone bring their specialty with the recipe written down for easy swapping!

-Mani/Pedis are a must! One great idea we found is for everyone attending to bring one or two shades of nailpolish that they aren’t super attached to. This way everyone can trade and leave with something new!

-Homemade hair masks. Hair masks are always fun, and now they are affordable! Here were two of our favorite recipes for homemade hair masks that are great for a girls night in!
