What are some romantic ways to spend New Year’s Eve?

Cupid’s Advice:

Whether you’re going out on a double date or staying inside cuddled up watching a movie with each other, there are plenty of romantic ways to ring in the New Year with your love.  Here are a few last-minute ideas to make sure you get your New Year’s kiss:

1. Plan a dinner at home: There’s a wise tale that says to get to a man’s heart, you have to know how to cook.  Prepare a candlelit, romantic dinner at home for just the two of you.  If the weather is somewhat breezy, set up a nice backyard dinner for you and your love.  That way, you will have front row seats to an early firework show.

2. Hit the beach: You may not be able to ring in the New Year in Las Vegas or New York, but you can always take a quick getaway trip to a nearby beach that will allow you and your significant other to spend some quality time together.  Watch the fireworks pop over the ocean as you and your love relax with your feet dug into the sand.

3. Dance the night-away: So maybe you’re the type of couple that likes to be seen.  Head to the club dressed to impress, and dance all night to your favorite songs.  Go as a couple, on a double date or with a group of your closest friends.
