New year, new couple! A new year holds the promise of great times ahead, especially when it comes to relationships and love. Celebrating this time of year with someone new in your life makes the holiday season even better.

There are many ways you can celebrate the beginning of 2015 with your significant other. Cupid has some dating advice to help you get started:

1. Host a party: New Year’s Eve is one of the biggest party nights of the year, but you and your partner can host a get-together anytime during the holiday season. Invite your mutual friends for a night of celebration (and don’t forget the champagne!). Planning the guest list, putting up the decorations, and welcoming your friends into your home is a smart date idea  that will strengthen your relationship and create memories for years to come.

2. Plan a getaway: Feel like greeting 2015 with some romantic alone time? This is dating advice we can get behind. Instead of celebrating with others, pretend you’re on a celebrity getaway and plan a trip for two at a ski resort, lake house, or anywhere else secluded and romantic. Every new couple needs alone time, so take the opportunity to get away from the stresses of everyday life.

3. Start a scrapbook: Begin collecting photos, letters, and other mementos documenting your relationship if you have not already done so. Keep everything in a special scrapbook so that when 2016 arrives, you two will have a great collection of the past year’s memories.

4. Create resolutions: The start of the new year is not just about celebration, but it is also about planning how the coming year will be a success. Now that you are a couple, you can help each other create (and stick to) your resolutions, whether it is saving money or getting a gym membership. The strongest couples are the ones who encourage each other to become the best they can be.
