New Year’s Day is easily one of the most exciting holidays of the year. It’s all about new beginnings! (And if you’re celebrating like the Drummond crew, then it’s about Ree’s famous cinnamon rolls, too. 😂) Whether you usually spend your day setting new goals and resolutions, cleaning up from the New Year’s party you held the night before, or just lounging around at home, it’s also a nice idea to take this time to reconnect with your loved ones and wish them a happy 2023. This could mean making a quick phone call or sending off a card or even a thoughtful text.
Here, we’ve rounded up some heartfelt new year wishes in the hopes that they’ll make it that much easier to reach out to your loved ones. Scroll through our ideas, and feel free to personalize them as much as you’d like (emojis are always a good idea—as are fun New Year’s quote inclusions!). Hoping to reach a lot of people? Good news: These wishes work beautifully as New Year’s Instagram captions, too.
Here’s to strengthening your relationships in 2023 and beyond!
