We've done a lot from home this year. We worked, cooked, taught, learned — but we also managed to do some celebrating too. So, we're ripe with ideas for how to ring in the new year from home, no sparkly stilettos required. First up: 

Cute and Comfy Loungewear

One of our favorite things to come out of 2020 has to be stylish loungewear sets like this sparkly set from Anthropologie, which is perfect to sport this New Year's Eve and into 2021. 

Easy, Yet Festive, Makeup

Nothing says New Year's Eve like some glittery glam lids. In just a few simple swipes of Stilla's Liquid Glow Eyeshadow, you'll be ready to countdown to a new year filled with new chapters. 

Not Into Makeup?

Why how very 2020 of you! Skincare most definitely trumped makeup this year, so we think sending off 2020 with a hydrating face mask makes perfect sense. Try Biossance's Squalane and Vitamin C Rose Mask, which features notable skincare ingredient of the year, squalane. Have you tried out a product with squalane? Leave a review to let Influensters know what you thought!

Nails That Sparkle

Okay, even if you're not into makeup this new years, nothing says, "celebrate" like a festive mani. Try out a gold glittery shade that'll match any outfit you decide to wear. 

A DIY Crown

We did a ton of DIYing in 2020, so have some fun with it this new years and craft your own crown. Pick up gems, feathers and more festive accessories online at a craft store like Michael's.  

Snacks and More Snacks 

You did enough cooking over the holidays so keep the menu simple with some finger foods. Trader Joe's has some great frozen options or assemble a charcuterie board worthy of the gram

Extra Special Champagne

A Feature Film 

Re-watch your favorite movie of the past year or a new release that have critics all a buzz like Soul on Disney+, that was released on Christmas Day.

A Virtual Countdown Link

Countdown with loved ones virtually, via Zoom or your fave video call app. Keeping yourself safe will help keep those you care about safe too — and what better way to start off the new year than by caring for the ones you love?
