Huge bashes for the Big Game just aren’t in the cards this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate football’s biggest day in a safe way with your family.

So, are you ready to plan your football fête? Let’s get shopping, because the Big Game will be here before you know it!
Big Game Celebrations: Food and cooking
No football party is complete without the snacks! Hot wings are always a crowd pleaser, and this five pound bag has more than enough to feed your quarantine pod. Tyson’s Buffalo Style Hot wings are already fully cooked so you just have to pop them in the microwave, meaning you’ll spend less time cooking and more time watching the big game. As an added bonus, you can order online and pick them up for free in store or with curbside pickup.
Nothing says football party quite like fried, cheesy treats, and we’re already salivating over this 72 count pack of mozzarella sticks. They only take a few minutes to cook in a conventional oven, toaster oven or a convection oven, so if you run out and need more, your family won’t have to deal with the hungry horrors for too long.
Football parties with the family are fun - until you have to wash all those dishes. So do yourself a favor this year and pick up a pack of durable paper plates you can toss in the trash once you’re done eating. Chinet’s durable All Occasion plates are leak-resistant, microwaveable and biodegradable. There’s no minimum purchase required to use Sam’s Club’s curbside pickup, so even if you just swing by the store to grab these, it’ll be worth the trip.
Dying to find out why everyone’s buzzing about air fryers? Trust us, they’re a kitchen gamechanger. PowerXL’s multitasking air fryer lets you enjoy all those tempting fried foods without all the extra oil or grease. The kitchen mainstay has eight settings and temperature control so you can air fry, bake, roast or broil, depending on your mood. Plus, the 8 qt model has enough room to make up to seven servings in one cooking cycle.
If you live in a climate where outdoor grilling isn’t practical this time of year, you can still get that authentic barbeque taste with an indoor smokeless grill. This one heats up quickly and keeps smoke out of your kitchen as you prepare all your favorite BBQ delicacies. The spacious design has room for up to four large steaks, six burgers or eight chicken pieces. The best part of all? Cleanup is easy since several of the grill’s parts are dishwasher-safe.

Big Game Celebrations: Outdoor fun
Planning a socially distanced get together with your quarantine pod for the Big Game? Get cozy outside with a portable heater to keep everyone warm. This remote control one from Westinghouse comes complete with a timer function, an oscillating feature to equally distribute heat, and tip-over/overheating protection.
Whether it’s just your immediate family on hand or you’re inviting your quarantine pod over for an outdoor get together, a comfy dining set is a must-have. Montez’s four-piece set comes with a table, two chairs and a loveseat and has a contemporary design that’ll complement all your other backyard furniture.

Big Game Celebrations: Cleanup
No matter how hard you try to keep food on your plate, you’re bound to find a few crumbs on the floor when the game is over. The last thing anyone wants to do late at night is vacuum, though, so a robotic vacuum like the iRobot Roomba is a great way to clean up with minimal effort. Just schedule a cleanup overnight or activate it with the push of a button, and rest assured that your floors will be good as new when you wake up.
If you’ve got a furry friend running around at home, odds are they’re going to want to join in on the fun, too. And you know what that means: Lots of dropped food scraps and an extra dose of fur in your living room. Shark’s Pet Plus vacuum has a washable HEPA filter that traps dust and allergens and powerful suction to banish dirt, hair and debris from your floors. The vacuum is easy to maneuver from room to room and can swivel around corners and furniture to get a true deep clean.
