Have I got New Year’s Eve party ideas for you, people. Going out? Staying in? Or maybe you and your crew are doing a mixture of both. I want you to be prepared when the clock strikes midnight, whether you celebrate with a kiss or a toast of champagne, or are frantically looking for your phone to take a video of yourself yelling and spinning around. Or is that just me?

Anyway, here’s a list of items to help you ring in the new year wherever you may be. You can also get your Netflix queue ready here for your post-NYE recovery.
