Adulting is hard sometimes (and by sometimes, we mean always) which is why it’s so important to take some time for yourself. While some me-time is good, why not use that time to spend a night with your ladies?

You may not be up to going to the bars and staying up until 3 am anymore, but who said a ladies night out had to stay that way forever? Check out these fun and unique girls night out ideas and get ready for an unforgettable night!

1. Wine Tasting Party

If you and your friends are wine lovers, having a wine tasting party is the perfect thing to host for you and your ladies. You can do this one of two ways:

1) Find local wineries who offer wine tastings and pick your top 5. You’ll expand your palate and learn more about your town’s local wineries.

2) Host a wine tasting party at your home. Each lady brings her favorite wine for everyone to try. Add a plate of cheese and crackers to feel fancy – even if you’re drinking a $5 bottle.

Either option is a fun way to spend time with your friends and get to drink in the process.

2. Escape Room

If you’re a problem solver and want to try something different for a girls night out, consider trying an Escape Room.

The idea is that you’re “locked” inside a room and have to solve different puzzles and clues to find your way out. With the right team, it isn’t hard to dominate an escape room, and each room has a different theme and backstory to make it fun and interesting!

3. Spa Day

Who doesn’t need a relaxing spa day once in a while? Get your cucumber slices ready and girlfriends together for a day of rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation.

Like the wine tasting party, you can make this spa day as inexpensive or expensive as you want. Choose between splurging on a local spa, complete with full body massages, or a spa day at home with manicures and pedicures. You can even get adventurous and make an at-home face mask to try!

4. Pole Dancing Class

Let’s face it – we’ve seen other women do it and have secretly always wanted to learn, so why not take a pole dancing class with your gal pals?

This is a great way to bond with your ladies and do something together none of you have done before.

Check your local gyms or dance studios for a class schedule and get your dancing poles ready – it isn’t as easy as it looks!

5. Pinterest DIY

Pick your favorite DIY craft or project off Pinterest and get to work.

This is a perfect idea for around the holidays. Who doesn’t love a homemade gift? It may not look like the picture, but you and your girls had a blast trying to make it.

6. Tarot/Psychic Readings

Grab your girls for a little bit of a different girls night out experience and book your local psychic for a tarot or psychic reading. Keep an open mind and share your theories on the information later!

Who knows, you may become a believer by the end of the night.

7. Baking Party

Everyone loves to eat sweets, especially chocolate chip cookie dough. So invite your girls over for a baking party night. Everyone brings their go-to dessert recipe. Once they arrive, get baking.

You can work together to create the next Pinterest-worthy dessert or make a bunch and vote on your favorite. Add some wine and end the night with your favorite rom-com movie for a perfect girls night in.

8. Tourists for the Day

Take a day to become tourists in your own town. Revisit old favorites or a must-see you haven’t gotten the chance to visit yet.

You can see if your city or town offers a guided tour and learn about the history and best places to eat (if you didn’t already know, that is). You and your girlfriends may even find the next place to have a girls night out.

9. Dancing & Karaoke

Who’s the best singer or dancer in your friend group? If you aren’t sure, find out with a karaoke and dancing night. Many bars have included this in their weeknight specials, and some offer it on the weekends.

You can also do this at home. All you need is a karaoke machine and a video game like Just Dance to compete. See who has the best dance moves and singing voice – get silly prizes to give the winners at the end of the night!

10. Amusement Park

Going to an amusement park may not involve drinking at a club or a relaxing spa day, but it is a fun way to get together and do something different. Spend the day riding roller coasters and people-watching.

11. Booze & Boardgames

Depending on you or your friend’s financial situation, hosting a girls night out may not be fair to everyone. That’s why we’ve added a few girls night in ideas, like booze & boardgames.

Break out the Monopoly board or test out your acting skills with a game of charades. This throwback night will have you laughing and competing with your besties all at the same time.

12. Sleepover Throwback

If you’ve all been friends since you were children, you might remember getting together on a Friday or Saturday night for a slumber party. So why not get together for a girls night sleepover throwback?

Bring your favorite snacks, PJ’s, and DVDs for a night filled with reminiscing and fun. You can even include some of our other ideas mentioned above, like a baking party or spa night.

13. Beach Day

If you live in a warmer climate, spending the day at the beach with your girlfriends to work on your tan and catch some waves is a great way to spend some time together.

If it’s in the budget and you’re feeling adventurous why not plan a trip to an exotic beach and have a beach party?

14. Casino Night

Even if you aren’t the best at gambling it makes for a fun girls night out idea. Grab a drink, hit the tables, and get ready to win with your girls by your side.

15. Go Shopping

We couldn’t leave this classic girl activity off the list. Planning a shopping day with your gang is a great way to spend time together and find a great outfit for your next girls night out. Besides, retail therapy is a girl’s best friend.
