7 Unique Ideas to Take your Home Tailgate to The Next Level

Tailgating is going to look a little different this year, but that does not mean it has to be any less fun. Here is a guide on how to host a safe, yet enjoyable home tailgate with individually wrapped snacks, festive decorations, and socially distant fun activities.

One of the most important things to have at your tailgate this year to stay safe is individually wrapped snacks and desserts. In the age of Coronavirus, open dips and party platters can allow for the spreading of germs, so this year we are recommending some wrapped goodies that are exciting, delicious, and safe.


1. Garrett Popcorn

What is a game day without popcorn? Garrett Popcorn sells “parade packs” of their famous popcorn in individual bags perfect for game day. Get 12 for $24.95 or 24 for $44.95.

2. Tuck-ins

No tailgate would be complete without dessert. Tuck-ins® are a roastable, Inside-Out S’more™ on a stick, each containing a handmade graham cracker, covered in chocolate, all inside a handmade marshmallow! Tuck-ins® are available in Classic, Cookies N’ Cream, and seasonal flavors and great for outdoor roasting. 

3. Drinks

You cannot do game day without beer. However, the popularity of hard seltzers has been on the rise, so we recommend grabbing a few of those as well for tailgating.

Even though we cannot physically go to stadiums or have large parties with our friends, we can still show our team spirit. Here are a few ways to get excited about game day and show team pride, while staying safe.


4. Team face masks 

Face coverings are now an awesome way to express yourself while keeping yourself and other people healthy. Check out face masks for your favorite team on Etsy, Fanatics, and Amazon.

5. Football Decorations 

Sometimes planning and decorating can be just as exciting as the actual game. Check out these football balloons and decorative table covers as a fun way to spice up your tailgate.

Whether you are hosting your family in the living room or having a few friends over in the backyard, you may need some solutions to accommodate public health guidelines.


6. Projector and Screen

If you do not want to crowd around a single screen, we recommend a projector that can be used to display the game on a larger scale. These are available on Amazon or Walmart.

7. Cornhole Boards

Cornhole has become a favorite tailgate activity, and luckily for sports fans, one that is also easy to play while keeping a social distance. Get your cornhole boards from Dicks and take advantage of their curbside pick-up service.
