New Year’s Eve Ideas For Couples
If you’re in a couple, New Year’s Eve can be one of the most romantic nights of the year. It’s the perfect opportunity to spend time with your honey, reflect on all the things that make your relationship wonderful, and look forward with anticipation to the next year together. Whether you’ve been together a few months or married for 25 years, why not plan a romantic New Year’s Eve together to ring in the next year? Here are some ideas to spark your imagination:
Take A Boat Trip
Is there anything more romantic than a midnight boat trip? How about a midnight boat trip on New Year’s Eve? This will need a little planning in advance, but is well worth it. Pack a romantic picnic and some warm rugs, and set sail for your very own Little Mermaid fantasy boat ride. You’re bound to see fireworks – both in the sky and in the boat!
Set Goals Together
Enjoy a romantic twist on New Year’s resolutions with some couple goal setting. Open a nice bottle of wine, fix some favorite snacks, light a few candles, and sit down together with pen and paper. Write down a list of everything you want to achieve as a couple in the New Year. Whether you want to take an exotic holiday, have more date nights, take up a new hobby, or work on your communication skills, write it down. Toast the New Year and look forward to achieving your relationship goals in the coming year.
Do you get on well with your family? Or maybe you have a group of friends you love spending time with. Gather together your nearest and dearest for a warm and affectionate New Year’s eve together. Book a great restaurant for your party and enjoy an evening of fine food and good company. You’ll have a blast, and you can look forward to some delightful alone time when the festivities are done.
Have A Quiet Night In
New Year’s Eve doesn’t have to mean going out and partying. If that’s not your speed, why not arrange a romantic night in for just the two of you? Make a delicious feast, or order from your favorite takeout place. Light some candles, put on your favorite movie and simply enjoy one another’s company.
Go Ice Skating
There’s something so romantic about ice skating, even if the skating itself looks less than professional! Get dressed up in your warm coat, hat and gloves, and enjoy gliding over the ice with your sweetheart. Hold hands as you skate together, and don’t forget to find a place to warm up with hot chocolates afterwards.
Host A Games Night
If you’re feeling social but don’t want to go out and party, why not host a games night? Lay on plenty of snacks and stock the drinks cabinet, then invite your closest friends over for fun and company. Try your hand at cards, see who’s best at Monopoly or Pictionary, or try out some traditional games like charades.
Pamper One Another
A couple’s pamper evening makes for a wonderfully romantic New Year’s Eve at home. Stock up on bubble bath or bath bombs. Splash out on some good quality scented candles, and don’t forget some scented massage oil. Close the curtains, lock the door, and enjoy a whole evening of relaxation and pampering.
Take A Vacation
New Year’s Eve is the perfect time to get away from everything and spend some time together, just the two of you. Book a romantic city break, or head into the wild with a chalet holiday. If you’re tired of winter weather, head somewhere warm, or explore a country you’ve always wanted to visit. Book early to score yourself a good deal and look forward to spending New Year’s Eve relaxing far away from everyday life.
Go For A Stroll Down Memory Lane
If you’ve been together for a couple of years or more, New Year’s Eve is the perfect time for a romantic stroll down memory lane. Visit the place you went on your first date, or book a table at one of your favorite restaurants. Take a stroll round your old haunts, rent one of the first movies you watched together, or make a romantic slideshow of your favorite photographs. Then look forward to the new year and many more happy times together.
Get Dressed Up To The Nines
There’s nothing quite like getting your glam on at New Year’s Eve. For a more traditional New Year’s Eve celebration, get all dressed up in your best clothes, and head out to enjoy the New Year’s Eve festivities. Visit your favorite bars, look for parties to attend, or add a little culture by going to a concert or live music venue. You’ll love the New Year’s Eve buzz – don’t forget to be right beside each other ready to kiss when the clock strikes midnight.
Whether you prefer a traditional New Year’s party or want to enjoy some quiet alone time, New Year’s is the perfect opportunity to spend some quality time with your love and start the next year together off on the right foot.
