Just because you can’t go to a fancy party and kiss a stranger at midnight on New Year’s Eve doesn’t mean you can’t still celebrate in style.
In addition to being the safest option, staying home for the holiday has some other advantages as well, like saving money by not having to buy an expensive party ticket or overpriced rideshare at the end of the night.
Instead, embrace the comfort of your home and ring in the new year with these seven tips to keep you feeling festive and looking forward to 2021.
Get dressed up in fancy pajamas
Being at home doesn’t mean you can’t get dressed up. And just because you’re dressing up doesn’t mean you have to be uncomfortable. Get the best of both worlds with these ultra-chic and party-worthy pajamas.
Product Recommendation: Sleeper Party Pajama Set with Double Feathers in Black $320
Embrace sparkles with your makeup and nails
Throw on some easy-to-wear sparkly makeup, like this appropriately named Disco eyeshadow from the clean beauty brand, Roen. Swipe a little across your lids and you’ll be feeling festive in no time.
Product Recommendation: Roen Disco Eye $29
Get festive with your accessories
Something as simple as putting on some sparkly earrings or a crystal hair accessory is a surefire way to get you in the New Year’s Eve spirit. This crystal velvet headband from Lele Sadoughi will dress up even the simplest of hairstyles.

Trade high heels for chic slippers
One of the worst parts of a typical New Year’s Eve party is wearing high heels for hours on end, but celebrating at home means you can slip on something more comfortable. To feel more dressed up, try a stylish house slipper, like these adorable mules from Larosa Style.

Make beautiful cocktails at home
Say goodbye to long lines at the bar and overpriced cocktails by making your own at home. Try your hand at this Sparkling Pomegranate Cranberry Sangria or a French 75 and pour them into one of these gorgeous CB2 cocktail glasses that look like they’re straight out of the 1950s.

Watch a light-hearted movie
Save the heavy dramas for another night and embrace the lightheartedness of a holiday rom-com. If you prefer classics, When Harry Met Sally is always a great option. Or for something to remind you of the days when we could all party together, stream Holidate.
Pop some bubbly at midnight and blast Auld Lang Syne
