Bringing in the New Year with those you love is incredibly special. Here are our top picks for couples looking to celebrate the arrival of 2019 with a little romance.

Going Gourmet at Home

You do not need to spend your New Year’s surrounded by busy crowds or wondering if you booking the right restaurant. Romance starts at home and it is far more cost effective organising a romantic dinner at home than it is to spend the night at a fancy restaurant.

You can opt to start off with a few snacks for starters before moving on to a home cooked meal by candlelight. Staying home will also give you the opportunity to splurge on a bottle of nice wine to accompany your dinner.

Much of what you need for your night in can be bought from Karaglen SuperSpar and if you are running short on a few ideas chat to one of our managers who would be able to help you get sorted. Don’t forget to have a look at our amazing selection of wines to accompany your romantic dinner.

Here are a few dinner ideas:

Braised Beef

Rolled Pork Belly with Cranberry Apple Stuffing

Book a cozy couples getaway

There are a number of resorts and around Johannesburg that offers exclusive couples escapes and one of the best times to book one of these getaways is over New Years. Book a night time massage followed by an onsite dinner for you and your love to bring in 2019.

A view of the ocean

If you have opted to go to the beach over the festive season, settling in on the sand for the arrival of 2019 would be a winning idea for sure. Most beaches do not allow the consumption of alcohol so make sure you cater for your midnight picnic accordingly.
