Host a Party
Chances are, there are a few of your friends and family that also don’t have plans for new year’s eve, and hosting your own party will take care of this. Since there isn’t too much time left for planning, it would be better to opt for a smaller, more intimate gathering, but there are still many different themes and concepts that you can use to make your party a stand-out. From a cocktail mixology party to a fun karaoke night, these parties are all relatively quick and easy to organize, and your friends will definitely thank you for it!

A New Year’s Eve Picnic
Not only will most restaurants be fully booked by now for a new year’s eve dinner, but they also usually charge quite a bit extra for a dinner on this night. Instead, if you live somewhere that isn’t too cold, We recommend a new year’s eve picnic, complete with champagne, luxurious picnic food, and your very own fireworks. Whether it’s a romantic candlelit picnic for two, or a sprawling picnic with loud music and all of your friends, this is definitely a memorable way to bring in the new year.
