As a child, slumber parties were the highlight of our social calendar. And why should we leave that fun behind in adulthood? Grownups deserve to gather with friends, snack, chat, watch movies, and enjoy a night of peaceful slumber together. Whether you're on a weekend getaway or just looking for some Friday night fun, there are endless possibilities to keep you entertained.

Put away your phones

First things first, let's ditch our cell phones. When you're with your besties, there's no need for scrolling through social media. The night will be so much more enjoyable if everyone is present and phone-free. If necessary, designate one person to keep their phone out for taking selfies and ordering food. Let's focus on creating memories together.

Sport matching pajama sets

What better way to make your sleepover feel special than by wearing matching pajamas? If investing in full sets seems a bit much, you can also make or buy coordinating tees, socks, or even sleep masks. The unofficial uniform of the night will make for super-fun photos and ensure that everyone remembers this night for years to come.

Turn on some tunes

Before your guests arrive, take the time to curate your very own sleepover playlist. Choose hits from the '80s, '90s, and 2000s that everyone can scream-sing along to. Whether you dig out your old CDs for some Y2K nostalgia or find a pre-made playlist online, music is a must-have for a perfect slumber party. Make sure to check out our ultimate sleepover checklist to ensure you have everything you need for a night of fun.

Build a board (or three!)

Board or grazing boards are the latest trend, and they are perfect for a slumber party. Whether it's a butter board, a charcuterie board, or a dessert board, these boards are all the rage. Create an appetizer board, an after-dinner treat board, or even a breakfast spread for the next morning. It's a fun and delicious way to keep everyone satisfied throughout the night.

Order takeout

Pizza might have been the go-to food for childhood sleepovers, but it's time to take it up a notch. Call up your favorite restaurant, whether it's a sushi place, a steakhouse, or a taco joint, and order a serious spread for your squad. Food delivery services make it easy to feast on delicious meals without leaving the comfort of your own home.

Do a wine tasting

For an entertaining and sophisticated activity, why not have a wine tasting? Ask everyone to bring their favorite white or red wine and conceal the bottles in bags for a blind taste-test. You can rank them and have fun discussing the flavors and aromas. It's a great way to discover new wines and share your favorites with friends.

Stir up cozy sippers

If wine isn't your thing or you want some non-alcoholic options, make a big batch of your favorite warm beverage. Mugs of slow-cooked apple cider, luscious chai, or our Hot Almond N Cream Drink are perfect for cozying up during your movie marathon. These warm drinks pair perfectly with all the bad-in-a-good-way movies you're about to binge.

Munch on a snack mix

Buttered popcorn might be a classic sleepover snack, but let's take it to the next level. Stir in some tasty mix-ins to elevate your popcorn game. For those with a sweet tooth, try our Chocolate-Mint Popcorn with Junior Mints. Craving something savory? Our Nacho Popcorn with Parmesan, hot pepper sauce, parsley, garlic salt, and chili powder will satisfy your cravings.

Set up a nest

Create a cozy space for your slumber party. While it may not be a blanket fort, you can still cuddle up under a comforter and quilts. Move your coffee table and inflate an air mattress next to the couch. Pile on the blankets and line the base of the couch with pillows for the ultimate movie-watching experience.

Make face masks

Don't forget to pamper yourselves during the sleepover ritual. Stir together a homemade face mask, such as avocado or coconut-based ones. These masks require just a couple of ingredients, all of which are available at your local grocery or drugstore. And yes, it's still acceptable to put cucumber slices on your eyes for that ultimate relaxation experience.

Nail some fun nail art

Continue the spa experience with manicures or pedicures. Nail stickers and shortcut products make it easier than ever to achieve salon-quality results. If you want to take relaxation to the next level, heat damp towels in your slow-cooker or use a paraffin wax treatment for your hands. It's all about treating yourself and feeling pampered.

Craft to your heart's content

Let your creativity flow and indulge in some DIY crafts. Whether it's decoupaging wine bottle vases, tie-dyeing canvas totes, painting coasters, creating fleece tie blankets, making earrings or bracelets, or trying something from our Handmade Outdoor Crafts book, there are endless possibilities. Purchase the supplies ahead of time and split the cost with your friends. It's a great way to create lasting memories and souvenirs.

Have a movie marathon

Choose a theme or a selection of movies that everyone agrees on. Whether you're into romance, action, or horror, a movie marathon is a classic sleepover activity. Stock up on popcorn, snacks, and drinks, and get ready to laugh, cry, or scream together. Don't waste any time deciding what to watch, so you can fully enjoy the movie experience.

Play board or card games

Forget about Candyland and UNO. There's a vast selection of adult-friendly board and card games available. Priorities, What Do You Meme?, and Wavelength are just a few examples of games that will bring laughter and friendly competition to your slumber party. Get ready to learn more about each other and have a great time.

Make cookies...or cookie dough

Indulge your sweet tooth by making cookies or cookie dough. You can go for store-bought cookie dough that's easy and quick or make homemade cookies from scratch. Our Big & Buttery Chocolate Chip Cookies are a crowd-pleaser. And if you love eating the dough, try our cookie dough truffles, chocolate chip dip, or safe-to-eat cookie dough. It's a delicious treat for your slumber party.

Lean into astrology

Bring back the magic of horoscopes from your teen years. Read your horoscopes using phone applications or websites like Co-Star. If you're new to astrology, take the time to learn about your sun, moon, and rising signs. It's a fun way to discover more about yourself and your friends. Who knows? You might uncover some surprising insights.

Take a personality test

Discover more about yourself and your friends by taking a personality quiz. It can be a fun and insightful activity that leads to interesting discussions. Try finding a quiz in a magazine or take the popular Enneagram personality test. It's a great way to delve deeper into your personalities and strengthen your bond.

Sort out the sleeping situation

Unlike childhood sleepovers, sleeping on the floor is no longer an option. Make sure everyone has a comfortable place to sleep, whether it's an air mattress, a bed, or a couch. If needed, ask your friends to bring their own air mattresses so that everyone can enjoy a good night's sleep. A well-rested morning is essential for a memorable slumber party.

Program a pot of coffee

Before going to bed, set the timer on your coffee maker. This way, you'll wake up to the aroma of freshly brewed coffee in the morning. Stock up on creamers, sugar, and milk so everyone can enjoy their coffee just the way they like it. It's a small gesture that will make waking up even more enjoyable.

Sleep!

While pulling all-nighters may have been the norm during childhood sleepovers, getting enough rest is crucial for adults. Don't feel pressured to stay up too late and sacrifice sleep. Remember, the goal is to have a restful and relaxing night off. In the morning, allow yourself to wake up naturally without the need for alarms. Embrace the luxury of a good night's sleep and wake up feeling refreshed.

Now that you have these 20 adult slumber party ideas, it's time to gather your friends and have the perfect night in. Enjoy the company, the laughter, and the memories you'll create together. It's never too late to relive the joy of a slumber party, no matter how old you are.
