The great part of making your own spa nights is you can make any combination of scents and flavors that you like. You can have as many different creams, foot scrubs, and exfoliates as you want. Go to the dollar store and get a few bottles of nail polish and paint each other’s nails. Just have fun with it.
Wine & Cheese Night
Found from Greatist
I love wine and cheese for dinner, snack or even brunch so when creating a cheap cheeseboard that looks fancy I get my advice from here. Throw in a few cheap bottles of wine and it’s a real party!
Girls Night Coloring Book Session

They say coloring is a great stress reliever! Crack open a bottle of wine or make a special cocktail for the night, play some good music and just relax while coloring your stress away.

Craft nights can be a blast making something for the holidays or just because its spring. If you work in a group you will tend to bounce way more ideas off of each other like what to do with old furniture or frames you haven’t used in forever. Who knows this can become your monthly meetup group too!

A yoga night can be just what you and your girlfriends need after a long and busy week. Have some refreshing appetizers and make your own spa water with lemon and cucumber. It’s so cheap to de-stress with a yoga session with your closest friends. You could grab a video from YouTube or, to get a little more intense, stream something like Dailyburn Yoga.

Hit your local thrift store(s) and find the best item. Then you can always turn it into a craft night too! Repurpose the items you found and create something new with them.
Pancakes and Pajamas Night
Found from Style Me Pretty
I saw this post and just had to share it. It’s an amazing idea even though this was for a young kids birthday party sleepover. We big girls can have just as much fun if not more. Tell your friends to where their favorite pajamas and all of you can make pancakes serve with mimosas and you have a winning girl’s brunch!
Guilty Pleasure Night
Have each girl bring over their favorite magazines for a night of celebrity gossip and fun! Check out sites like the BuzzFeed quizzes or Perez Hilton to get the gossip started.
Have a friend or stream a video from YouTube to teach make-up tips and tricks. Sometimes the videos can be really well informed and entertaining. Everyone can bring over their make up or buy some colorful sets at the Dollar Store and help each other achieve their perfect look!

Cookie exchanges are the best! This one is perfect for the Christmas season. Have each girl bring their favorite recipe and you can bake and decorate the cookies with each other!
As shown from above, it doesn’t take a lot of money to have fun with your friends. Just by being in the same room and being present with your girls can be the best time. Put the phones down and just have fun. Try some or all of these activities, who knows you might start a new tradition that can last a lifetime!
