Winona Dimeo-Ediger | December 28, 2012 - 9:30 am

If you’re planning to get all dolled up and go out on the town for New Year’s Eve, we’ve got your sparkly dress needs covered, but what if you’re opting for a romantic night in? Many of the most memorable midnights happen in the comfort of your own home, kissing somebody you’ve kissed a million times before. If that sounds like your kind of celebration, here’s everything you need for a perfect, private date to usher in the new year….

1. Jersey dress: Who says a little black dress has to be uncomfortable? If you’re staying home, reach for a simple dress in a soft fabric to keep you feeling sexy and comfy. [$22.50]

2. A great recipe: Whether you cook together or treat your love to a fabulous meal, food is an integral part of a great at-home date. [Cookbook: $23]

3. Champagne: Cliche, yes, but for good reason. [$50]

4. Massage oil: For after midnight (Or before–whatever floats your boat!) You can buy a bottle, like this vanilla jasmine formula, or you can try making your own.

5. Fresh flowers: Splurge on a gorgeous bouquet to make your house feel fancier than usual.
