The new year, 2023, is only a few days away. Now is the perfect time to get your new year wishes ready to send to friends and loved ones. This time, though, you don’t have to do the work alone. I trawled the web and came up with the list below featuring a wide variety of new year wishes. Use these expressions and phrases to craft your own wishes and enrich your greetings vocabulary.

I categorized these wishes into General New Year Wishes that you can send to anyone you want, New Year Wishes for Friends, New Year Wishes for Loved Ones (e.g., family, partner, or spouse), Funny New Year Wishes, and Inspirational New Year Wishes.

As a teacher, you can share these resources with students to provide them with words to use when writing new wishes to each others.  You can also use online graphic design tools such as Adobe Express to create beautiful new year’s cards to share via email or print.
