Have A Midnight Picnic
What could be more romantic than snuggling up together under a picnic rug as the new year arrives? Find a local park or garden, riverbank, or even an attractive city square, and enjoy your very own midnight picnic. Pack strawberries, chocolate, good wine, and plenty of other favorite foods. Choose a location with a good chance of seeing fireworks for the ultimate romantic moment at midnight.
Take A Road Trip
Why not celebrate New Year’s by taking a road trip together? You’ll have plenty of time to bond and enjoy being alone with each other, and the sense of fun and adventure will add an instant injection of romance. Plan ahead for a longer trip, or simply head to the nearest beach with a flask of hot chocolate for an exciting way to ring in the new year.
Have A Sexy Movie Marathon
Get romantic in the comfort of your own home with a sexy movie marathon. Pick out your favorite romantic or sexy movies (and maybe some you haven’t seen before) and enjoy a romantic night in together. Cook a delicious dinner for two, or arrange an easy to eat buffet of foods you can feed each other such as mango slices and chocolate dipped strawberries. Switch off your phones, light some candles, make some popcorn and get cozy.
Get Away From It All
Skip the New Year’s Eve parties in favor of a romantic break away from it all. Find a charming country guesthouse or rent a log cabin in the woods for a peaceful, romantic start to the new year. What could be more romantic than just the two of you sipping wine or champagne cuddled up beside a roaring log fire?
Go To A Black Tie Event
A black tie event adds instant romance to any New Year’s Eve celebration. Find an upscale dance or masquerade ball, or attend the opera or ballet. You’ll both love getting dressed up in your finest, and inhabiting a world of opulence and glamor for the night will leave you sparkling with romance. Hire a limo or take a ride in a horse drawn carriage for added magic, and don’t forget to book dinner or drinks at a swanky restaurant too.
Write A Love Letter
Make New Year’s Eve a time to appreciate everything you love about each other. In the week before New Year’s Eve, write your sweetheart a letter telling them all the things you love about them. Remind them of some of your happiest memories together and tell them how much you’re looking forward to the future together. Make it extra special with good quality paper and seal the envelope with a real wax seal. Open and read them together when the clock strikes midnight.
Make A Dream Come True
Is there somewhere the two of you have always wanted to go? Have you always wanted to go skiing together, or see a musical on Broadway? Whatever it is, make New Year’s Eve the night you finally make that dream come true. Booking a trip or experience you’ve both talked about will fill you with anticipation and ensure that this New Year’s Eve is an unforgettable one.
Take A Midnight Stroll
A romantic midnight stroll is the perfect opportunity to spend time together as the new year arrives. Enjoy a stroll around a busy district of your city, drive to a location you’ve always loved, or find a peaceful riverside spot or beachfront to walk along. Whatever you choose, be sure to wrap up warm and scout out the best places to stop for a drink as you watch the world go by.
Go On A Dinner Cruise
Book a dinner cruise and see in the new year in style. New Year’s Eve dinner cruises are a fun and romantic way to spend the evening. You can dress in your finest and enjoy excellent food prepared for you, while enjoying the views from the boat. Some cruises offer a fantastic view of the new year fireworks. Kissing at midnight on a boat while fireworks explode around you is the stuff dreams are made of.
Pampering isn’t only for girl’s time! Book a spa day for the both of you and enjoy a relaxed and luxurious New Year’s Eve. You can enjoy massages, saunas or beauty treatments and feel utterly relaxed and pampered. Don’t forget to arrange a romantic meal or drinks out for the both of you in the evening, or why not enjoy a romantic meal together at home to round off your indulgent day?
New Year’s Eve is a wonderful night for injecting some extra magic and romance into your relationship. Enjoy one of these romantic ideas and ring in the new year feeling happy, connected, and excited for the year to come.
