Glitz and Glam - attend a ball or a themed evening

New Year's Eve calls for a great excuse to dress up in your best and create your very own ball or glamourous theme night. Themes can vary but you're sure to find something spectacular no matter what your preference.

So, whether you're interested in an elegant 1940's affair, James Bond, Casino night or even murder mystery, you can create or attend something that is unique to your interests and style.

Pub drinks

The local pub

If you're looking for something a bit more casual this year, then heading down to your local pub may be a great option to choose. Surround yourself with your closest friends, a few festive drinks and nibbles and curl up by the fire or dance the night away to a live band or DJ.

The perk of this New Year's Eve option is that you don't have to worry about cleaning up the mess at home and you can arrive and leave at your convenience safe in the knowledge that you haven't got far to travel as you're only a stone's throw away from home.

New Years Eve party

Throw a party!

An old favourite is to throw a fun filled house party! Plan a night filled with board games, lots of dancing, jokes and delicious party foods and drinks.

Hosting a party at home can be a messy job but it certainly is a lot more comfortable and inviting being in the comfort of your own home. Ask your guests to bring their favourite drink to the party to ensure everyone is catered for and delegate party jobs too so you also get to enjoy the evening.

Dinner Party

Dinner Party

An all year-round favourite is to host a dinner party for yourself and your closest friends. This option is a little more formal than a house party but at the same time a lot more relaxing a stress-free.

Invite a handful of friends over for a lavish 3 or 4 course meal with all the extras including the champagne and truffles. After dinner you can sit and swap stories, play games and enjoy each-others company in the peace, quiet and comfort of a space that is entirely yours for the evening.

Romantic cottage getaway

Romantic Getaway for two

If your idea of a perfect New Year's Eve is spending it alone with your loved one, then a romantic getaway for two is just what you need.

A weekend away in a cabin in the woods or a holiday cottage with a roaring open fireplace to sit next to is the perfect way to toast in a new year with the person you want to spend it with most. Forget the crowds or trying to people please, this night is all about you and planning for the year ahead.

Firework display

Public Firework Display

If you want to end the year quite literally with a bang, then a public firework display to mark the stroke of midnight is the perfect way to celebrate. Whether you're at a large or smaller, intimate display, wrapping up in your warmest hat and gloves and gazing in awe at the sky is a beautiful and traditional way to spend the evening.

Spa Retreat

Create a spa retreat

No doubt after the rush up to Christmas, cooking Christmas dinner and visiting friends and family, you may be feeling a little tired and stressed.

Relax and unwind with your very own home-made spa retreat and let your worries float away. Head over to a beauty store and pick up some face masks, body lotions, nail polish and any other products to help you relax and enjoy a night of pampering.

Go on, you deserve it.

Movie Night

Dedicated movie night and take-away

If a no fuss and no-frills night in sounds like heaven to you then there's no reason why you can't spend your New Year's Eve doing exactly what you love.

Curl up on the sofa with your favourite take-away and watch holiday films up until the live action countdown of midnight begins on your television.

Speciality meal

Speciality meal out

A speciality meal out is the perfect solution to enjoy the best of both worlds. You're not obligated to stay until midnight if you don't want to but you still get spoilt to a delicious meal out and get to spend time with your friends or your loved one.

Choosing a themed restaurant such as Caribbean, Cuban, indian or Mexican will spice up your evening and make a great change from your usual eateries on this special occasion.

Mixologist class

Mixologist Class

If cocktails are your thing then a mixologist class will be right up your street for a different and fun filled New Year's Eve.

Either hire someone to come to your home or attend a workshop and enjoy an evening of drinking classic and crazy concoctions with your friends. Pair this with some party food or one of the options above such as a speciality meal out or hosting a dinner party for an extra special evening!

Most importantly before the big night kicks off, if you are opting to throwing your own New Year's Eve extravaganza, make sure you look in to and order your Party Insurance!
