Staycation

If you just can't get off work or your household is far too busy to pick up and go, take a Staycation! Perhaps all you can get is a night in, or a weekend of freedom, so we've dreamt up some fun ways to make it count.

Everybody deserves some pampering once in a while, especially during the summer when the kids are home and the days are longer. So, set some ground rules if you're “bringing” the whole family, or just for yourself. Start by signing off your regular duties... the phone, the laundry, the worries.
 
Slide on a pair of plush new slippers and think beach-vibes. A refreshing herbal face mask will calm even Anne Hathaway, circa The Devil Wears Prada. For a great girls weekend treat, create a spa station with some scented candles, add some cucumber, water and essential oils, like lavender or eucalyptus, to make a face mist. With cucumbers on your eyelids, you will think you're on a private island.
 
Try on a pair of noise cancelling headphones and a meditation podcast. Or, wear in some hiking boots and hit a new trail before the sun sets. If you have little ones learning new skills, how about a family cycle or skateboard? When it gets too hot, chill out at a local water park, pool side, or at the beach. Don't forget, you're on vacation, so indulge yourself with all the scarves, beach wraps, body oils and boho hats! Grab a cute towel or inflatable donut floaty and drift off to your happy place.
 
Check out local guides or apps and try out somewhere new near you. Order in or visit an attraction you've never seen in your own home town. Check out what's on at the theater or museum and treat yourself to some go-proselfies, some strolling and maybe even some shopping. If you've got TV to catch up on, have a mini-film festival, add in popcorn, sweets and champagne and you, my friend, are on a luxury staycation!
 
Find everything you need in our Staycation collection, where you can collect and share all of your favorite summer steals. For at home or traveling abroad, we've got it all.. Check out or how you can save this season and earn cash rewards from home... or where ever the road may take you!
