For a Special Scent
We all love to smell nice, and hosting a “fragrance bachelorette party” will have you and your ladies sniffing and loving every minute of it. Local apothecary and perfumery Zeilinski & Rozen lets you pick and choose, smell and ponder your new signature scent with a range of choice essential oils and expert advice on which ones complement one another. Indulgent creams, candles, soaps and diffusers are also available.
For the Foodies
If you haven’t already tried out an Eatwith meal, you’re in for a serious treat. What began as an Israeli start-up is now a globally-famous site, pairing up people looking to indulge in a delicious, home-cooked meal with inventive cooks who host the experience in the comfort of their own digs. Depending on what kind of food and ambience you’re after, different hosts offer a range of options – from extravagant eight-course tasting menus to rustic farm-to-table ingredients. This kind of “dinner party” is perfect for intimate groups looking to celebrate.
For Adventure Seekers
One of the best parts of Israel is its year-round temperate weather and its dynamic landscapes. Take advantage of the rare combo, grab your besties, and rent a van to road trip from north to south. Take in the Negev’s pristine desert backdrops and pose for some Red Sea selfies, then up to Mt Hermon’s (possible!) snow caps – you can see it all within a day’s drive. Don’t forget to prep a memory-inducing playlist to rock out to for the ultimate bonding experience.
For the Nature Lovers
Sleeping outside under the stars, chatting into the wee hours about life, is just what the bride ordered. For ladies who want the camping experience but still want to feel a bit fancy, there are a host of ‘glamping’ accommodations across Israel, including luxury Bedouin tents, tipis and even yurts.
