2021 New Year's Glasses: The Party Animal's NYE Accessory
Amazing! Eyeglasses that let you see the future! And the future is 2021.
While these 2021 New Year's glasses may not give you the power of prognostication (we're still testing out this theory), and we can't guarantee they'll help you make better resolutions for the coming year, we can say with confidence that they'll add an element of fun to the party or your New Year's Eve photo booth.
Goofy novelty glasses are the accessory most responsible for bringing out the true party animal. Maybe it's because people feel safer behind them ("Surely, they won't recognize me..."), or because it's impossible to take oneself too seriously in a pair of sparkly, 70s-ostentatious specs. There's no doubt that they instantly elevate the mood, especially when shared party-wide.
As to the style of novelty glasses you select – well, this will depend on your role at the party and how you intend to celebrate the new year.
Cardstock 2021 NYE Glasses Party Packs: These affordable cardboard glasses with glittery 2021 frames and film lenses are meant to be handed out like party favors. Choose them if you're hosting the party and would like to distribute extra cheer for the midnight group photo op.
Plastic 2021 NYE Glasses Party Packs: Sturdier than cardstock, these party favor eyeglasses have plastic frames with hinged earpieces and plastic lenses with an overlay of see-though 2021 lettering. Choose them if you're the hostess with a slightly bigger budget, or if there's a chance the celebration may be exposed to elements like wind, snow, or rain.
2021 Frame Glasses: Purchased in singles, 2021 eyeglasses have the number 2021 molded into the frame itself. Although you're free to wear them anytime you like, for all practical purposes, they're good for just one a night: the night of New Year's Eve, after which they'll become obsolete or a collector's item.
Happy New Year Glasses: Here, the words "Happy New Year" are built into the frame as a headline, or they're printed across the lenses of the glasses. Since the message is relevant every December 31, you can break your Happy New Year glasses out of storage year after year. If you're frugal to a fault or are a hoarder, this is the way to go.
Light-Up New Year's Eve Glasses: In a room with dim lights, it's impossible to ignore the party goer with flashing 2021 eyeglass frames. For a subtler effect, set the built-in LED lights to steady glow.
Champagne Bottle Glasses: Much classier than beer goggles, champagne bottle glasses feature frames shaped like champagne bottles and a message unlikely to be remembered because at some point in the New Year's Eve bash, everyone will be too far gone.
