NYE Ideas for Couples
It's December 31 and the count down is on. Everyone looks for their special someone and at the stroke of midnight we all pucker up for that special NYE kiss.
Ever wonder where that tradition came from, or why it's such an important moment for couples? NYE is ripe with superstitions and that midnight kiss is a symbol that your love and closeness will last all year long. So make it a good one! It leads nicely into the next NYE superstition, stating that what you do in the first hour of the new year will be what you spend most of the year doing. Hmmm. We think this a great reason for couples to plan a romantic night alone together.
So if you decided to avoid the crowds, the long wait for a taxi, and the New Years Day hangover read on for some New Years Eve Date Ideas.
New Years Nostalgia ~ Make a Memory Trail
This is a great one for long time couples. Remember some of the special places or things that you did in the early days that turned you into a couple in the first place. For example, revisit that first date, or first kiss. Was it a walk in the park, a cup of coffee, or a glass of wine? Start your evening back at that coffee shop, or bundle up and stroll along the same trail in that same park. Maybe you remember the vintage of wine, pick up a bottle to share at home and ring in the New Year while slow dancing to your special song.
Stay Home and Unplug
Plan for a quiet night in, turn of the phones, the tablets, and the TV. Get some good tunes going, play a sexy board game, drink wine. Surprise each other with a sensual massage, a slow dance, or a steamy movie on Netflix.
Plan a Sexy DYI Photo Shoot
While people will be busy uploading #NewYearselfies, you lovebirds can go a step further and create your own private album. Get your best camera out, decorate a spot of the house that has the best lights, slip into a sexy outfit and start posing!
Pamper Each Other
Little luxuries can make for an incredible evening. Stop by a Dollar Store and stock up on tea light candles, pick up a bottle of champagne (or 2!) and some delicious light appetizers. We love grapes, strawberries, cheese, and other nibbles (think light, easy finger foods). Take some time to prep your bedroom or living room to make it feel extra special. Need inspiration?

Have a 5 Star Meal at Home
Embrace your inner Iron Chef and pick an incredible meal to cook together in your own kitchen. Dress up your table with candles, flowers, and champagne. Get your groove on in the kitchen and cook along to some of your favorite music. Slip into something sexy before you dine, just because you're staying in you don't want to deny yourself the pleasure of wearing something sparkly or a little bit sexy. Your hunny will definitely notice and appreciate it!
Finish off the incredible meal with the best kind of dessert. You! Drizzle some decadent milk chocolate body paint on yourself, or your lover and enjoy.
Happy New Year!
