It’s All About Staycations!

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 parlour, you can still create those same endorphins but without the stress!

In need of a new summer wardrobe? The likes of New Look and Peacocks are now stocked with fabulously stylish summer must-haves, at sizzling sale prices to grab a bargain!

Not got a beauty salon appointment yet? No worries, for all your summer beauty essentials head to Boots or Superdrug 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?

Try out some new garden games or perhaps you want to make a splash with an inflatable swimming pool or jump around in a bouncy castle and treat your outdoor space to some fancy new garden furniture – why not order online of choose your local ‘click and collect’ from Argos who have an abundance of choice to create your garden getaway! (please note the Argos in our centre is still currently closed.)

And should the British weather fail us, The Works will have all your essentials for 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? With themed tableware and a wide range of accessories to compliment your feast, you’ll find some great ideas from One Below and Sainsbury’s.

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 the Pavilions.
