1. BE A COUCH POTATO
Nothing better than slipping under a warm blanket on a cold winter night, and watching some of your favourite shows endlessly. Thanks to Netflix and iTunes you don’t have to be stuck with boring throwback reality TV. Here’s what’s on our binge list: Marco Polo, Medici Masters Of Florence, Narcos, Designated Survivor, and The Night Of.
2. GO ON A SOLO TRIP
While your friends are busy planning holidays to the best party spots around the world, take some time off and go on a solo trip. We suggest you run away to the hills with your hiking gear and a Kindle. Spend the last night of the year amidst nature, sitting under the stars with a bottle of your favourite red. Isn’t your me-time long overdue? Suggestions: Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh, Sangla in Himachal Pradesh, Coorg in Karnataka, and Malshej Ghat in Maharashtra.
3. RECONNECT WITH LOST FRIENDS
Already in touch with all of them through social media? When was the last time you wrote a letter to your childhood friend? Catch up on school days the old-school way. Pull out some stationery and pen down memories from the time you spent together. Trust us, this is the best New Year gift they will ever receive.
4. MAKE A PHOTO COLLAGE
It’s the last day of 2016, and we’re sure you’ve collected a chunk of images along the year. Now's the time to go through all of them and pull out the best. Make yourself a photo collage that you can print and hang on your memory wall. Check out our Top 10 photo-editing apps story to pick the one that works for you best.
5. COOK A MEAL FOR THE FOLKS
Spent an entire year partying with your friends? Give a surprise to your parents and cook them a meal. If you’re not the best hand in the kitchen, pick a recipe that’s quick, easy to do, and makes an impression. We suggest those from BBC Food, All Recipes, and Greatist.
