Fall is the perfect season to prioritize rest and recharging. It’s right after the busyness of end of summer and the back-to-school season and right before the hustle and bustle of the holidays. With the sun setting earlier and days getting shorter, the weeks between late September and late December are the perfect time to soak up time indoors with the people you love before you are on the go again.

Here are few ideas for what to do on your next girls night in: 

Get Competitive With Board Games

The sky’s the limit with board games available. You can go old school and opt for board games that stand the test of time like Monopoly or if you are wanting a more adult-friendly game, try something like Cards Against Humanity or Taboo.

Get Real With Conversation Cards

In lieu of games, you can opt for something more conversation-generating and introspective like conversation cards. Dive deep with your girls on questions about love and relationships. The Real Talk conversation cards offer more than 100 questions for you and your friends. You can have the entire group answer each question, have one person answer each question, or you can turn it into a drinking game. 

Pitch-In on a Cooked Home Meal

Trying out new recipes with your friend group will definitely lead to some genuine bonding time. Make it a potluck and have everyone chip in. Be sure to keep in mind allergies and dietary restrictions of your group. It’s best to avoid any ingredients that might cause an allergic reaction.

Create an At-Home Spa

Nothing screams a night in more than an at-home spa. Think manicures, pedicures, face masks and chocolate covered strawberries. You and your girls work hard. There’s no better way to bond and refill your internal cups than by spending time together pampering yourselves. 

Host a Movie Night

Kick up your feet and pop some popcorn. You can never go wrong with a movie night. Make it into a game by having everyone put their favorite movie title in a hat. Whichever movie is chosen, have your guests guess which movie belongs to whom. Level up your movie night by giving it a theme and have your guests dress up as their favorite characters from the night’s feature film.
