The best thing about New Year’s Eve is not usually where you are - it’s usually who you are with. Most of us make an enormous effort to be with our friends and family on New Year’s Eve. We rock the casbah as we say goodbye to yet another year before welcoming in a new one.

If you can’t be with that certain someone this year, the next best thing is to send them Happy New Year text messages to let them know you’re thinking about them. But what should you say that’s more creative than the generic “Happy New Year”? How can you make them feel a bit special?

After we’ve finally come down from Christmas, it’s time to welcome in the New Year. Yay! Another “holiday” and a chance to see friends, get drunk and have some fun!

New Year’s is an important time of the year for many of us. We get to see the people we love and care about the most, and we’re basically saying goodbye to a whole chapter in our life before welcoming in a new one.

As such, there is an air of finality about the new year. You’re leaving memories behind, and getting ready to look forward to creating new ones. Some of us even make resolutions to ensure that the next year will be even more awesome.

Happy New Years Text Message Ideas

But isn’t it really sad when you can’t be with everyone you want to be with? It doesn’t have to be. If there are people you can’t spend your time celebrating the new year with, send them a creative Happy New Year text messages. Use these as inspiration, and let your creative juices run free!


Happy New Year Text Messages For Old Friends

If you have a friend whom you haven’t spoken to in a long, long time, this is a good way of re-establishing contact. I find a great way of breaking the ice is by reminding them of an old, fun memory that you both share. Who hasn’t made a crazy but beautiful resolution with someone at some point in their lives?

“Oh my gosh, remember that resolution we made to go to backpacking in Australia on $50?? You still game? Hope you’ve saved up more than $50 🙂 Happy New Year!”

“Remember the time we resolved to give up diet coke? I lasted three days…and I still beat you 🙂 Happy New Year!”

2. Better Days Ahead

This is a good text to send to someone who’s had a bit of a rough year. Maybe they’ve had money worries, or perhaps they’ve ended a long term relationship. Either way, it’s important that you remind them that, whatever has gone wrong throughout the year, things can always be fixed.

“I know this year wasn’t the best for you. But I just wanted to let you know that I’m always here. Happy New Year my beautiful friend!”

No two years are ever the same. Remind your friend that they now have a chance to wipe the slate clean and start all over again.

3. I Miss You

I think this is a fun text to send to someone who you usually have a good giggle with on New Year’s Eve, but who won’t be around this time. Let them know you treasure their friendship and that you miss them.

“I can’t believe we’re not spending New Year’s together! Who’s gonna be here to hold me to my ridiculous resolutions?? I miss you! Happy New Year!!”

4. You Rock

“I’m so proud of everything that you became this year. You have outdone yourself, and may you keep on growing and learning in 2024. You can be whatever you want to be. Happy New Year!”

Send this to someone in your life who has worked hard over the last twelve months to improve their life.

Show them that their hard work and growth has not gone unnoticed. Use the end of the year to let them know that you’ve watched them transform, and that you’re proud of them.

Whoever receives this text won’t be able to stop grinning. No matter how awesome their year already was, you’ve just put the icing on the cake for them.

5. See You Soon?

Got a friend you’re not seeing the new year in with, but who you really want to meet up with soon? Then let them know via text!

“I’m so sorry we’re not welcoming in the new year together. What is all that about?? We MUST get together as soon as possible and come up with some insane resolutions!! Happy New Year!!”

6. Happy New Year Text Messages For A New Partner

If you have a partner in your life, you can say Happy New Year to them in person – but you should also say Happy New Year to them via text, too.

Why? Because the written word is so powerful. Send it to them during a moment they’re away from you, and make their day. They won’t be able to stop smiling (or crying!).

“Hoping we can experience new things together, learn together and make mistakes together. I want us to share in the magic of life together. Remember, I am always right behind you, cheering you on. Happy New Year.”

These are just a few examples of Happy New Year text messages you can send. Feel free to do with them whatever you like. But whatever you do – have a fab time!
