5 New Year's Eve Date Ideas:
New Year’s Eve is the ultimate fantasy. Call me cynical, but most New Year’s Eve expectations have now been well and truly debunked for me. ‘Poppin’ bottles’ rather takes the form of queuing for 30 minutes to get served at the bar. That magical New Year’s kiss has more often than not been a drunken smooch with my best friend. Between losing your friends for hours in a tiny crowded pub, and having the dog throw a fit at the banging fireworks, New Year’s Eve rarely lives up to the majestic fantasy it is portrayed to be…
Even so, it’s one of my favourite nights of the year. As long as I get to see the New Year in with people I love, I am happy! Ditch the overcrowded bars, pubs and events this year, and make your own New Year’s Eve tradition with a unique and intimate date with your loved ones. Here’s 5 special ways to see in the New Year, making a night you’ll never forget!
Have A Dinner Party With Friends
There’s nothing better than spending an evening laughing the night away with friends. Get the champagne flowing at a dinner party on New Year’s Eve with your nearest and dearest. Ask each person to bring a part of the dish (and plenty of vino!) and fill the evening with laughter and reminiscence. To twinkle in the candlelight, you’ll need a bright and shining ring to complement the rich wine hues. Augustine Jewels’ Citrine Ring will inspire much conversation around the dinner table. The sterling silver magically enhances the warm citrine gemstone, allowing you to start the New Year with style and class.
Go Retro With Bowling And Milkshakes
For those of you who feel the tug of youth within you, get your teenage kicks at a vintage bowling alley. Go with friends or your beau, either way a night at the lanes will guarantee fun and laughter this New Year’s Eve. Have a giggle over your ugly bowling shoes or your terrible technique. Split a strawberry milkshake, fries and a smooch as the clock hits midnight! For a night of retro fun, you’ll need a quirky ring to match. The Twist By Danya’s 18kt Gold & Enamel Popcorn Ring is a cute and quirky item perfect for your night of fun. Adorned in pearls and rubies, this jewellery piece will keep you in the fast lane all night.
Have A Winter Picnic
Are you and your partner nature lovers? Do you seek beauty in starry skies over firework displays? Why not escape from the world this New Year’s Eve on a sunset picnic with your beloved. Pack snug blankets, kindling, marshmallows and a bottle of bubbly for the ultimate New Year’s getaway. Play your favourite romantic playlist and cozy up together as you see the New Year in amongst the tranquility and peace of nature. You’ll be wrapped up in scarves, coats and the warm embrace of your loved one. Adorn yourself in this simple and elegant Five Charm Star Necklace designed by Chavin Couture. Watch these stars twinkle under the starlit sky for a romantic moment you’ll never forget.
Get Boozy With Board Games
I could make a list of couples I know who live for board game evenings with a glass of wine. Why not whack out a bottle of bourbon this New Year’s Eve and have the ultimate board game marathon with your darling. Sit in front of a roaring fire, listening to your favourite tunes as you get jiggy with words on the Scrabble board. Why not spice up the game by slipping in a personalised letter necklace into the letter bag? Just imagine the look on her face as she pulls out a dazzling silver necklace - that’s a moment you both won’t ever forget. Crafted from 18kt white gold and adorned with a gleaming white diamond, you’ll even give Scrabble a luxury edge with this beautiful gift.
Brush Shoulders At A Bougie Brasserie
For the romantics amongst you, go back to basics and dine out at your favourite restaurant. There’s no better recipe for love than good food, fine wine and sterling company. Feel the height of romance as you see the New Year in amongst warm hues of red wine and champagne. To make sure you glitter amongst the sensual ambience, adorn yourself with Lucy Quartermaine’s Long Drop Bangle. The dripping silver form looks as if it’s melting down one’s wrist, with delicate chains adding movement to the bracelet. This unique number will add an original twist to any ensemble, ensuring those eyes will be locked on you all night long.
