Girls night activities are a great way to bond with your female friends and have fun. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing evening at home or a night out on the town, there are plenty of options to choose from.

Why have a girls night?

A girls night is the best way to have a good time with your group of friends. It can be hard to enjoy a great night with your friends when everyone has different commitments. From partners, to work, to kids and other family members.

Having a girls night can be a fun and enjoyable way to spend time with friends, bond with other women and create lasting memories. It can also be an opportunity to relax, unwind and let loose, as well as a chance to talk openly and honestly about personal issues and concerns.

It can also provide a sense of community and support, which can be beneficial for both mental and emotional well-being.

Spa Night

One popular activity for a girl’s night is having a spa night at home. Not only is this a fun way to spend an evening, but it’s also a great way to pamper yourself and your friends.

  • manicures
  • pedicures
  • face masks
  • massage
  • meditation
  • swapping hair and make-up tips

Or visit your local hydrotherapy pool. I guarantee you will have the best night sleep.

Movie Night

Another option is to have a movie night at home. You can make popcorn and other snacks, and choose a movie that everyone will enjoy. This is a great way to spend a relaxed evening at home and catch up with your friends.

Set up your living room with bean bags, blankets and comfy cushions. Don’t forget the popcorn and snack bar.

Vote between your favourite chick flicks or scary movies to decide what to watch.

Grab a bite to eat

If you’re looking for a night out on the town, you could go out for a nice dinner at a restaurant. This is a great way to catch up with your friends and enjoy a delicious meal. If you can’t decide where to eat, host a girls night dinner instead.

Switch it up by visiting the local coffee shop, or Italian restaurant or go on the hunt for the best Chinese food.

Go clubbing or dancing

You can also go out for drinks at a bar or club. This is fun to let loose and rip up the dance floor with your friends.

Sometimes there is no better place than a bar that has live music and happy hour.

There is also the option of a silent disco which can be a great idea for a dance party.


If you’re looking for something a little more adventurous, you could try going out for a night of karaoke. This is a great way to have fun and show off your singing skills. You might be surprised to learn that your friend’s favorite songs come from Disney movies!

You can also try going out for a night of bowling or mini golf. These activities are great for groups and are a fun way to spend an evening.


Another great activity for a girls’ night is to go shopping. You can go to a mall or shopping centre and try on clothes, shoes, and accessories. Or go to a thrift store and see who can pull together the most outrageous outfit.

Game Night

Another fun night activity is to have a game night. You can play games like charades, pictionary, card games like poker or Uno, or board games. This is a great way to spend an evening and have some friendly competition with your friends.

Cooking class

Taking a cooking class for a girls’ night can be a fun, educational, and delicious way to spend time with friends. It fosters bonding and teamwork all while helping you learn new skills. It’s interactive and hands-on which helps change up the pace of your everyday life.

Why not host an at home cooking class? Teach your friends how to make some of your favourite recipes. My favourites are Tim Tam Ice Cream and Mexican Coffee Pudding with Kahlúa Whipped Cream.

The best part about a cooking class is eating or sometimes drinking what you have prepared together with your friends.

Escape room

Test your teamwork skills with an escape room. Find a place that has a themed room based on your interests. You might have to split up into small groups, and race against the clock and each other.

It can be a challenging mental exercise but incredibly satisfying to solve all the problems and escape. It promotes communication, teamwork and problem-solving skills as you will all need to work together to solve the clues. Plus there is a sense of adventure in being part of a fun and memorable experience.

Or try a DIY escape room and turn your own home into an escape room.

Book club night

Not just a great way to meet new people, a book club is also a great way to share your interest with your closest friends. Plus, it provides you with a chance to expand your knowledge through different authors and genres.

Clothing swap

I know I have one friend I’m always borrowing clothes from.

A clothing swap can be a great way to get rid of some of your clothes and pick up some fresh ones without the financial outlay of new clothes. It’s the perfect idea if most of your gal pals are around the same clothing size.

Birthday party

It seems like a no-brainer really. But celebrate your friend’s birthdays with a party. Go out or stay in. Get dressed up or wear your comfy clothes. Either way, you should make sure there is cake!

Comedy club

What better way to spend time with your best friends than having a good laugh on a Thursday night or Friday night? Side-splitting laughter that is sure to have you in tears by the end of the night.

Amusement Park

Going to an amusement park can be a fun and exciting activity for a girls night. Try out all the rides and attractions at the park, from roller coasters to water rides. Try your hand at the park’s games and see if you can win a prize.

Take lots of photos and videos to capture fun memories. Many theme parks now have a wide variety of food options, from classic theme park foods to unique and gourmet options.

Check out the late-night activities like fireworks, laser shows or special nighttime rides.

Also Consider also checking for discounts or special offers that may be available, such as group rates or season passes.

Paint night

A paint night can be a fun and creative way to catch up with your friend group.

There are many ways to have a painting party:

  • all follow the same tutorial and see how different they end up being
  • paint and sip
  • swap every 15 minutes
  • portraits of each other or self-portraits
  • splatter painting
  • painting with just your fingers or feet

Craft night

Why stop at a painting night? A craft night is a great way to pick up a new skill and maybe even find a new hobby. Try your hand at painting, crocheting, knitting, jewellery making, pottery, scrapbooking, candle making or soap making.

Tasting party

There are a few ways you can do a tasting party:

  • wine tasting with your favorite bottle of wine
  • snack tasting
  • blind taste testing
  • cocktail making and tasting
  • theme night like Mexican food, chocolate or meat substitutes
  • charcuterie

You could even purchase some miracle berries. They make anything that tastes sour like lemon or lime, taste sweet instead.

Weekend away

Finally, you could plan a weekend getaway with your friends. This could be a road trip, a camping trip, or a girl’s weekend at a cabin. This is a great way to spend quality time with your friends and make some lasting memories.

It may take some planning to find the perfect place and time that suits everyone. But the way you will feel recharged by the end of the weekend will make you go the extra mile when planning the next one.

Beach or Pool

If you or one of your friends has a pool, a pool party is an easy way to catch up with your friends.

If no-one has a pool, the beach is another great option. There’s no need to plan games and activities. But if you are up for it, surfing and standup paddle boarding are a fun way to bond with your friends.

Try something new

Sometimes new things can be a bit daunting. But getting out of your comfort zone is often where the fun things happen.

Why you should try something new:

  • trying new experiences can broaden your perspective, giving you new insights and ways of thinking about the world
  • trying new things and facing new challenges can increase your confidence and self-esteem
  • engaging in new experiences and activities can stimulate your imagination and creativity
  • trying new things can add excitement and variety to your life, making it more interesting and fulfilling
  • trying new things can open up new opportunities and experiences that you may not have encountered otherwise
  • stepping outside of your comfort zone and trying new things can help you learn more about yourself and what you are capable of
  • trying new activities can help you meet new people and improve your social skills

Now I’m not saying go all out and go bungy jumping or get a tattoo, but growth often lies at the edge of comfort.

There really are just so many options when it comes to girls night activities. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing evening at home or a night out on the town, there are plenty of girls’ night ideas to choose from. So gather your friends, plan a fun evening, and make some lasting memories.
