It’s All About Staycations!

By 21st July 2020 No Comments

Many of us have sadly had to cancel our summer holidays, as a result of the worldwide pandemic.  If you’re currently reconsidering your July and August plans, how about a day trip to some of the UK’s beauty spots? Or for at-home relaxation, here’s our guide on how to re-create the holiday atmosphere at home this summer.

Are you Summer ready?

Whilst the run up to a holiday is usually filled with excitement, panic summer clothes buying and a quick dash to get pampered at the beauty salon, with a staycation you can create the same buzz but without the stress!

In need of some new summer footwear? Check out Clarks who have a great sale on stylish sandals! Not had a chance to book a beauty salon appointment?  No worries, just head to Boots and Savers and grab yourself a DIY home manicure and pedicure kit. And don’t forget the all-important sun screen for when the sun (eventually) comes out!

Fun in The Sun!

With home schooling finally finished for the summer, how can you keep the kids entertained? Why not create your very own holiday kids’ club in your own back garden?

Is it time for some new garden games, or perhaps you want to make a splash with an inflatable swimming pool or jump around on a bouncy castle or even treat your outdoor space to some fancy new garden furniture?  Head to Argos who have an abundance of choice to create your garden getaway! And should the British weather fail us, both Poundland and Poundstretcher have all your essentials to set up an arts and crafts home workshop indoors.

Whet your appetite!

If you’re missing that ‘brimming-with-food’ buffet and want to break free from the kitchen, it’s time to put a holiday spin on your cuisine. Choose a different take away each night, design your own summer menu, or perhaps your palate fancies a beach picnic or BBQ? For some fresh food inspiration on what to eat, head to WHSmith and get your hands on the latest cookbooks.

So, you CAN make the most of holidaying at home. Whether it’s a picnic party or a playground in your own glorious garden.  You’ll find all your staycation essentials at St George’s.
