What the Heck is Galentine's Day? Galentine's Day is a combination of "gal" and "Valentine" to make one fantastic day to celebrate the love and friendship of your best gal pals. Dr. Lissa Rankin sums up why female friendships are so vital that she compares them with oxygen. She says "when you surround yourself with the sacred container of intimate friendships, you no longer have to navigate the challenges of being human alone. When you stumble, your girlfriends will catch you. When they stumble, you can return the favor."So, whether you have a romantic Valentine's Day with your sweetie planned this year or not, it's also important to set time aside to cherish the girls you count on to get you through your toughest times. Lucky for you, we have ten ideas to help you celebrate this very special day!

1. Host a "Wonder Woman" Dinner Party

    Ask your friends to dress as their favorite female hero and be prepared with five facts about that person. Whether they choose Amelia Earhart or a coworker they admire, you'll learn more about the women that inspire and empower us every day.

2. Go to Breakfast or Brunch

    You didn't really need an excuse for bottomless mimosas did you?

3. Throw a Grownup Sleepover

    Must haves: Chick flicks, matching PJ's, a signature cocktail and plenty of junk food. And of course, no slumber party would be complete without a game of truth or dare.

4. Taste Wine with a Sommelier

    A sommelier is an expert in the all things vino. Chip in and hire one to teach you and your besties about what makes white wines white and the differences between a merlot and a cabernet. You'll be surprised how much fun you can have while learning something new.

5. Forget the Flowers

    We know everyone loves getting flowers on Valentine's Day, but your girlfriends deserve something that will bring them pleasure for years to come. Surprise them with a Sova female personal device tailored to match their personality. Don't worry; they come in discreet packaging, so it's safe to send them to her home or even her office!

6. Make a Girl Power Playlist

    Are your girlfriends spread around the country making it too hard for you to get together this year? Send them a girl power playlist with songs like "Can't Hold Us Down" by Christina Aguilera and "Run the World" by Beyoncé. Then FaceTime or Skype at a designated time for your own exclusive dance party.

7. Go for a Hike

    Are your chums more at home in the great outdoors? Plan a hike at a local park or recreation area. Have each of your friends bring something to share and enjoy a picnic at the end of your excursion to reward your hard work.

8. Spa Day and Sex Toy Discussion

    No time better than when you're getting pampered with mani-pedis to swap stories about what turns you on. You just might learn something new about your friends (AND their favorite toys).

9. Plan a Weekend Getaway

    Rent a house at a central location and relax away from your stresses at home with your best gal pals.

10. Schedule a Strip Club Happy Hour

    Are your girlfriends a little (or a lot) on the wild side? Go to a local strip club and leave your inhibitions at home.
