With the most celebrated day of romance taking place on the 14th February, the days leading up to the Feast of Saint Valentine can be celebrated by great mates. According to a number of studies, men struggle to make and keep friends as they age, so it is important to stay in touch with your best pals when you can.View the Malentine's Day Infographic!
Malentine’s day is celebrated on the 12th February, which will be on a Saturday in 2022.
Malentine’s day is a day for men to meet up and celebrate their amazing friendship. It is a happy, celebratory day, the male equivalent of Galentine’s day.
As long as you’re with your best mates, that’s the most important factor. You can buy each other a gift to show your love and respect for each other, whether that’s football tickets, a personalised wallet or you could pay for an experience to enjoy together.
Make sure to let your mates know how important they are to you and how much they’ve impacted your life. Also, be wary of friends in your life who may not have plans on Valentine’s Day and are single, try to meet up with them and see how they’re doing, making sure they don’t feel down at all.
You may want to book an activity for you and the lads, helping you all to have a great time before a few drinks in the evening. We’ve included some of the best options below which we recommend giving a go:
At the end of the day, you know what your mates will enjoy the most, whether that’s a game of bowling or simply having a few pints down the pub, just make sure to put it in the calendar and spend some great time together.
You’re under no obligation to buy your mate a gift, but this can often be a nice way to show your appreciation for them. Honestly, us guys never seem to share gifts with each other at Christmas or on our birthdays.
Our equivalent is almost always a pint down the pub, which isn’t a bad thing, it’s our own sign of affection, so don’t feel bad if that’s what you’re planning, but in case you’re looking for something a bit unique, we’ve listed some potential options you could consider:
Drinking card game, to be played later, e.g. Cards Against Humanity
A printed picture in a frame of you all together, such as a night out or on holiday
Beer pong set, because every house should have one
Personalised pint glass
