New Year’s Eve might look a little different this year, but you can still have fun. We’ve come up with four fantastic NYE celebration ideas to bring in 2021. The best part? These party ideas help save money and are in line with social distancing norms. There’s something in here for everyone.

Online pajama party

Heels and a party dress? Who would say no? You’ve been in sweats and your old t-shirt for most of this past year anyway. An online pajama party is the perfect excuse to stay cozy and have a ton of fun. The guest list can be as big or small as you want and you can save money on food as well.

Romantic evening in

Set up drinks, popcorn, and snacks and curl up on the couch with a hot date. But, make sure your partner has been avoiding crowded places for at least two weeks before New Year’s Eve. You won’t catch anything and the quarantine will heighten the anticipation! Together you can watch the ball drop at midnight and toast the New Year with some champagne. Romantic and budget-friendly too.

 A 2020 comedy roast

If anything deserves a good old-fashioned roast, it’s the year that was. Invite a few friends over or have your comedy roast of 2020 online. Appoint a Master of Ceremonies and allot a set time to each of your guests. Black tie optional, savagery mandatory. If you are ordering food, look for coupons and deals from restaurants to save money!

New Years Eve movie night

All alone on NYE? We’ve got you covered. Rent or buy a bunch of movies, switch off your phone, and order takeout. A Meg Ryan rom-com binge is perfect for a nostalgic 90’s vibe. Or go Old Hollywood with classic NYE movies like An Affair to Remember (1957).
