The Super Bowl: How to Entertain for the Big Game

Ah, the Super Bowl. That glorious time of year when we gather around the TV with friends, family, and a refrigerator full of snacks to watch people much more athletic than us play a game of tackle-and-catch. 

But what makes a Super Bowl party truly epic, besides the billions of dollars riding on it? The way you entertain. Today, we present a guide on how to host like a champ. 

Get Your Game Face On

I don’t care how old you are. 

Make sure to choose a side even if your favorite team isn’t playing, and don some gear. Throw on an Eagles or Chiefs jersey, paint your face, or wear one of those giant foam we’re number 1 hands. You can even hedge your bets by representing both teams. 

Pro tip: The more ridiculous the outfit, the better. Have no shame. 


Snacks are the MVP of any Super Bowl shindig, they are the touchdown dance of hunger and the halftime show of taste buds. Without them, the party would be like a game without cheerleaders, or a quarterback without a helmet.

Wow, that’s laying it on thick. 

Stock up on chips, dips, and anything else you can think of that will satisfy those hunger pangs (or numb the pain of your team or faux team losing).

The Drinks Are on Me

Don’t forget the drinks! Whether you’re serving up soda, beer, or something stronger, make sure to have enough to quench the thirst of even the most enthusiastic fans.

Also, cut them off if you have to so that people can safely drive home. 

Game On!

While the game is playing, make sure to have plenty of activities to keep everyone entertained.

You can organize a halftime show, play a drinking game, have a Super Bowl squares betting tournament, or just throw a bunch of random stuff at the TV when your team messes up.

Trash Talk

Trash talking during a football game is like the spicy seasoning in a bowl of chili: it adds a bit of extra flavor and excitement to the competition. 

It’s the playful banter between opponents, the friendly ribbing between friends, and the lighthearted exchanges that make the game all the more fun. 

Of course, it’s important to remember that trash talking should be done with levity and never cross the line into disrespectful or hurtful territory—unless someone deserves it. 

At its best, trash talking is just another way to show enthusiasm and love for the game. 

Have Fun, Dammit!

The most important thing to remember is to have fun. 

Whether your team wins or loses, you’ll still have a great time with friends, food, and drinks. And if all else fails, just remind yourself that the commercials are by and large intriguing.


Throwing a party is exhausting, so you deserve some R&R afterward in the form of our Inner Zen Relaxation Gift Basket, built in a faux leather storage box, including a mini Buddha Board drawing easel, Aloe infused socks, travel candle, black raspberry vanilla soap, and more. 

Have a great Super Bowl Sunday!
