Even before social distancing became so important, plenty of people enjoyed staycations for various reasons.
If you want to go on vacation and also save a bit of money then a staycation is a great way to enjoy yourself while saving on travel and hotels. Or if you can’t get away long enough to justify taking a vacation, you can spend a day or two enjoying yourself locally without all the extra travel time.
How to Plan the Perfect Summer Staycation
To plan your staycation, think about what kind of staycation you want to have. Are you looking for relaxation, trying new things, adventures or the outdoors? Once you know what kind of a staycation you want to have, then you can start coming up with ideas.
Staycations can still be as fun as vacations, you just have to plan it out and make it feel like a real vacation so you aren’t defaulting to “regular life” during your staycation. Try to stop yourself from doing chores, laundry, etc. on your staycation. That can wait until your staycation is over, as it would with a regular summer vacation.
Below are some Summer staycation ideas to help you along:
At-Home Spa Day
Want to pamper yourself, but not ready to go to the actual spa quite yet? Try having a spa day at home! Create that spa atmosphere by lighting some candles, like one from our EarthGifts Aromatherapy Candle Collection. Dim the lights, put away the clutter and make your home feel like a spa.
Once the ambiance of your home feels peaceful and relaxing, you can pamper yourself with a nice warm bath followed by lots of self care. Buy some botanical oils, hair care products or special lotions like our Oatmeal, Milk and Honey Goat Milk Lotion. If you’re comfortable with it, you can even find a massage therapist that does home visits to make it extra special.
Outdoor Movie Night
If you’re looking for something fun that feels like summer, try having an outdoor movie night! Place your TV outside or in a window and set up some cozy seating. (Add lots of blankets, pillows and decor to make it feel extra special.) And don’t forget the snacks!
Whether you prefer a little wine and cheese while you enjoy a movie, or you like the classic popcorn and soda, the snack bar is in your hands!
Eat Around The World
Just because you’re staying home doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy delicious food from all over the world! Pick a country or two that you would like to explore with your taste buds and order some takeout to enjoy at home.
Feel like visiting Italy? Grab some pizza, pasta and wine for your staycation. Have you always wanted to go to Thailand? Enjoy their culture through their food in your own home. (We LOVE Tom Kha Gai soup) If your staycation is going to last several days you can pick a new cuisine for each meal!
Have A Pool Day
Nothing says summer vacation like sitting by the pool for the day. If you have a pool, it’s time to take advantage! Even if you’re not ready for a pool party with all your friends and family, you can still enjoy a pool day as if you were off on a relaxing vacation.
Dedicate a day to relaxing by the pool, enjoying some cocktails and don’t forget the poolside snacks. Make it feel even more like a vacation by buying a few new towels or pieces of outdoor decor so it feels less like home and more like a tropical resort.
Don't forget to moisturize when you get out of the sun to keep your skin feeling cool and refreshed. Our line of whipped body butters are perfect for just that.
Visit A Local Farm
If you want to go outside and see the country for a few hours, check to see if any of your local farms are open for visitors. As a local farm that produces luxurious goat milk products, we may be a bit biased...but we think that visiting a farm is a fun way to spend the day and support your local farmers.
Go Backyard Camping
Want to go camping? You can do it in your backyard if you’re planning a staycation!
Set up your tent, your barbeque and your firepit as if you’re at an actual campground. Enjoy the outdoors, camp food and time with your family.
You can even look up some local hikes if you’re up for a change of scenery without a lot of people around. As a bonus, if you forget something then you just have to go back inside.
While we all love to take vacations, staycations can be the perfect way to take a break during the summer as well. Whether your vacation style is spa day, the outdoors, or exploring other cultures, there’s a perfect Summer staycation waiting for you. Go ahead and relax for a day (or more)...you deserve it!
