New Year's Eve: Party on a budget

New Year's Eve can be notoriously expensive. Suddenly your local club thinks it's OK to charge £20 just for entry and to double their drinks prices? No thanks! A house party is definitely the way to go if you're after NYE fun on a budget, just get your mates to bring their own bottles and you provide the snacks! We've got a few of the best picks to make the best NYE house party on a student budget.

Drinks & things

Play it safe with your glassware this NYE and invest in some novelty tumblers and hi-ball glasses to avoid any breakage! Create your own Jagerbombs with these Bomb Shot Glasses from IWOOT and don't forget your corkscrew for those all important wines. NYE-onbudget

Musical chairs

You don't want to have to keep changing CDs or picking new albums at your party do you? Indulge in a little £4.99 a month Spotify Premium and you've got access to thousands of playlists and songs without the annoying ads! Plus check out our amazing party playlist filled with classics and loads of our fave new songs!


To make the festivities even better, you can save 10% on sale at both Urban Outfitters and House of Fraser. We're a little obsessed with this Turnt Party Banner which you can pick up for an amazing £2.70. Jazz up the place with loads of fairy lights, sparkles and banners and your guests definitely won't miss that overpriced club. Still planning on getting out and about this NYE? Make sure you check out UBER to get your first ride free up to £15 with UNiDAYS in selected cities. Happy New Year guys!
