A staycation is a vacation spent at home rather than traveling to a different city, state, or country. You can take a staycation in your hometown or state by visiting all of the local attractions you’ve never been to before. You can also choose to stay in your own home during a staycation or make things a little fancier by booking a hotel room for you to enjoy a mini-vacation. There are numerous benefits and unforgettable experiences available depending on where you choose to spend your staycation!
After a long week at work, a weekend break is best defined as a short vacation somewhere. Weekend getaways are ideal for those who have a free weekend and want to unwind after a long week at work. Typically, weekend getaways are two days and one night, but some push their weekend getaways to be a little longer in the fall season.
Do you need some inspiration for your weekend escape or staycation? Here are some fantastic suggestions for winter vacations this season. These ideas can help you relax and unwind after a busy work week!
Spend Time in the Natural Environment!
To unwind during your staycation, go for a walk-in a nearby park or go for a hike. After all of the stress of our daily life, one of the best ways to de-stress is to surround oneself with an environment free of computers, cell phones, and emails. Consider visiting a national park in your state or a lake you’ve never been before to immerse yourself in the beautiful natural surroundings. Wear a bespoke t-shirt to remember your fantastic staycation by capturing your gorgeous surroundings. Not only can you make it seem lovely, but it will also serve as a locket for you to save your favorite memories for the rest of your life!
At-Home Spa Day!
Want to have a spa experience without paying spa prices? Consider treating yourself to an at-home spa day to truly pamper yourself and make your staycation the best it’s ever been. To completely appreciate the spa experience, treat yourself and the people with whom you’re spending your staycation with fun facials and relaxing massages. While you rest and enjoy your spa staycation, sip lemon and cucumber-infused water from custom drinkware and listen to calming spa music! Watch how the aura changes to set your mood right!
Camping in the Backyard!
Try something new and have a full-fledged camping experience right in your backyard. While gazing up at the sky, pitch a tent, roast marshmallows over an open fire, and sip hot chocolate from custom ceramic mugs. Backyard camping allows you to enjoy the outdoors while still having access to all of your home’s comforts and resources, making it ideal for first-time campers!
At Home, Snuggling!
Stay at home and set aside time during your staycation to unwind. Snuggle up in a warm, fluffy personalized fleece blanket with a book you’ve been meaning to read or host an at-home film festival with your favorite films. In addition, for a unique experience, you may host an interior picnic or a tea party at your home. Staycations allow you to do different activities that you don’t get to do regularly and make you feel more relaxed and comfortable during your staycation time!
Keep the photos framed!
Decorate your house or office with gorgeous canvas prints of local landmarks to capture the charm of your city. To reflect on the beautiful moments spent on your staycation, use a personalized photo frame to capture these memories. Let your vacay images see the light of day in various photo frame designs that would look wonderful, whether you took them on your phone or with a camera. A unique custom frame is an ideal way to exhibit all of the images you took during your staycation and recall all of the great moments you made!
Camping Trip for the Weekend!
Do you need some tips for where to go on your weekend getaway? Take a weekend camping vacation with your family and friends to make lifelong memories. Consider renting a private camping site or a beautiful glamping site to make your camping experience even better. Be sure to warm your toes during your camping trip with custom picture socks to commemorate your camping trip and keep them as a reminder of your weekend getaway!
A Quick Road Trip!
To get the most out of your weekend holiday, pick a location perfect for a short road journey and stay the night. A place that you’ve always wanted to visit and book a room at a tiny bed and breakfast inn or a posh hotel for the night, so you can wake up refreshed and ready to go exploring the next day. Choose the best weekend for your short road trip and write down all of your plans on a customized calendar to ensure that you have enough time to do everything you want during your weekend break!
For your weekend getaway this season, walk through a winter wonderland and enjoy the fresh snow with some hot chocolate. You can also include skiing, snowboarding, sledding, and other winter sports to make it extra exciting and memorable. In addition, you can use this time to capture beautiful photos for any holiday, Christmas, or season’s custom greeting cards you wish to send out that year. The natural winter theme in the background of your images will look beautiful on any Christmas card you choose to send to your loved ones!
