Ready to usher in the New Year? Before you raise that glass of champagne, make sure you've got your new year toast prepared. But if you're in a rush though, here are our top picks for the best toasts you can give to welcome the new year. 

1. As Oscar Wilde wrote, 'After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even one's own relations.' So let's feast and have a hefty dose of bubbly. Sounds like it's the easiest way to start the new year with a nice, clean slate—and, I don't know about you, but I'm good with that!"

2. "Here's a thought from Elizabeth Gilbert: This year, 'Embrace the glorious mess that you are.'"

3. "This year, take Betty White's advice: 'Accentuate the positive, not the negative. It sounds so trite, but a lot of people will pick out something to complain about, rather than say, ‘Hey, that was great!’ It’s not hard to find great stuff if you look.'"

4. "We're so hard on ourselves. Think about common New Year's resolutions: to eat less, to do more. But what if we resolved to just be kinder to ourselves. Wouldn't the world be a better place? Wouldn't we be happier? As Meghan Markle said in a 2015 interview: 'If we treated ourselves the way we treated our best friend, can you imagine how much better off we would be?'"

5. "New year—a new chapter, new verse, or just the same old story? Ultimately we write it. The choice is ours." - Alex Morritt, Impromptu Scribe

6. "Tonight, I am grateful to ring in the New Year with you, my best friends. As Lois Wyse said, "A good friend is a connection to life—a tie to the past, a road to the future, the key to sanity in a totally insane world."

7. "Oprah said: 'Family should be the place where you can be your most complete self.' Tonight, I want to toast to friends I am lucky to call family."

8. "May love and laughter light your days, and warm your heart and home. May good and faithful friends be yours, wherever you may roam." — Irish Proverb

9. "All those things that you're worried about are not important. You're going to be OK. Better than OK. You're going to be great. Spend less time tearing yourself apart, worrying if you're good enough. You are good enough. And you're going to meet amazing people in your life who will help you and love you." — Reese Witherspoon

10. "One of the first steps to happiness is deciding that you want to be happy and knowing what that means. I have had many full-on conversations about what that looks like for me. To be happy is a choice you make every day, every hour. And refining and renewing that state is a constant pursuit." — Julia Roberts
