How to celebrate the New Year 2021?

The traditional question "What will you do on New Year's Eve?" is also important this year, and maybe even more relevant, because the 2021 celebration is limited to our home space. During Christmas, we already checked that despite the restrictions, the holidays still come and to a large extent it depends only on us how festive they will be. We've already made our New Year's Eve plans, so we want to share ideas for how to create a beautiful celebration at home, whether it's on Zoom , with your significant other, or with family.

1. Festive look

We don't recommend a thick layer of glitter, but we certainly know that appearance affects how we feel. We invite you to jump from 'home' clothes to something more festive at least this evening. We will also choose comfortable, but not everyday clothes and details on New Year's Eve. After all, it is possible to create a more festive mood simply with the help of selected accessories, for example, tying a ponytail with a ribbon, putting on earrings or putting on a pendant.

Perupe offers different minimalist jewelry designs, maybe we can inspire you to dress up a little?

2. Game Psych!

During this period when we can't meet friends and colleagues, we discovered a particularly fun game through the mobile app Psych! . The game has paid and free versions. During a virtual party, you can download this app and spend time together interactively, turn on creativity and get a big dose of laughter. During the game you have to answer questions about the players. Answers are offered by all players and then a vote is held on which answer was the most accurate. Perupe team and I tested The Truth Comes Out Teaser free app game, we rate it 10/10. By the way, the game was created by Ellen DeGeneres, so it's as witty as she is.

3. Movies

We adore cinema... And welcoming the New Year with a good movie is, agree, not such a bad offer. If you want to create a more interesting experience while watching a movie, we recommend using multimedia. Don't have a projector? It can be rented for a small price on the page. Don't forget the popcorn!
