Whether you have been together for two or 25 years, New Year's is a special time to celebrate your loving bond. Although you rejoice in your love throughout the year, New Year's is a unique opportunity to reflect on your achievements and the memories of your union as you move into the next year.

Couples worldwide take the time during the holidays to show their partner how much they care and value their relationship. For those that are on a budget, elaborate demonstrations of affection aren't always possible. The good news is that it doesn't always take a grand, expensive gesture to show your love how you feel.

There are plenty of frugal options for celebrating New Year's that can be meaningful and memorable. You may need to visit Love & Promise Jewelers for a small token of your love, and with some planning and effort, you can treat your partner to a unique celebration while staying on budget. Let's look at a few romantic date ideas to help you bring in the New Year in style.

Picnic

If you live in the south, one of the most romantic ways to spend New Year's is in the outdoors, enjoying a lovely meal at a picnic. Get out and enjoy the beauty of nature, throw down a plush blanket and break into a custom-made picnic basket of all of your favorite goodies. If New Year's in the north includes snow on the ground, you may have to bring your picnic indoors. Light some candles, lay out a blanket in your living room, and enjoy some romantic time together, sharing a meal and talking about your memories and your future.

Museum

Surrounding yourselves with beautiful works of art can be a magical way to spend New Year's Eve with your partner. Many museums and art galleries host special events for couples to enjoy with a low admission cost or just a donation request for entry. Some museums offer a light dinner menu or allow you to bring in your own snacks to enjoy while you tour their exhibits together.

Home Movie Night

Netflix is fine for a Saturday night, but on New Year's, you may want to do something a bit more special. Break out your home movies and take a walk down memory lane. There is nothing better than reliving your favorite times through watching your family and loved ones on the screen. Sit back with some popcorn and your partner for a beautiful night of reliving your love. 

Online Cooking Class

Nothing brings two people in love closer than learning something new together. If heading out to a five-star restaurant just isn't in the budget, there is a fun alternative where you can enjoy a new adventure in the kitchen as a team. Take part in a cooking class, or set up your own class at home and cook along with your favorite culinary TV show to create a delicious and romantic dinner for two on New Year's Eve.

Winery Tour

If you and your partner enjoy the finer things in life, but are on a limited budget for New Year's, you might consider taking a winery tour to sample your favorite vintages for less. Visit some of the area's most picturesque wineries, get educated about different wines and blends, and get involved in an elegant tasting to celebrate the passing of another year. 

You don't have to spend a fortune to express your love for each other on New Year's. A grand gesture showcasing your affection and care can be as simple as dedicating time spent together in a quiet moment. Try one of these romantic date ideas to help you and your partner make New Year's memories that will last a lifetime.
