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 Peacocks for their range of stylish sandals.  Looking for a stylish summer hair accessory? Claire’s have plenty to choose from! Not got a slot at the beauty salon yet?  No worries, just head to 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 finishing for the summer, how can you keep the kids entertained? Why not create your very own holiday kids’ club in arts and crafts home workshop, as well as tips for gardening and new games to play outside.

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 summer tableware and a wide range of accessories to compliment your feast, you’ll find some great ideas throughout the centre.

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 George Yard.
