There are an unlimited amount of New Year's wishes that can be offered to friends and loved ones, such as "Out with the old, in with the new: may you be happy the whole year through!" Numerous other phrases are appropriate for friends, family and romantic acquaintances.
Most New Year's wishes deal with the end of the past year and the beginning of the new; one for a wife or husband is: "All my wishes, all my hopes, all my dreams, and mostly all my love for a Happy New Year!"
An inspirational phrase that is great for anyone is: "As the New Year dawns, I hope it is filled with the promises of a brighter tomorrow. Happy New Year!" One that might be a great group text to friends: "It is time to forget the past and celebrate the new beginning! Happy New Year!"
