What You Actually Need for a Summer Staycation

Close your eyes and imagine your happy place. Is it a beach? We're dreaming of sand and surf, too.

The unofficial start of summer has us thinking of ways to repurpose this year's summer vacation into a summer staycation.

If you want to learn how to create an at-home oasis free of all your instacart-ing, meal making, zoom meetings and your newest job as your kids' teacher, you've come to the right place.

Below, you'll find our at-home spin on the R&R benefits a vacation usually provides.

Plus, we've got you covered with 20% off all the Business & Pleasure Co. chairs, umbrellas and tents mentioned in the article. No code needed - discount will be applied at checkout through Monday, May 25. Happy Memorial Day and happy summer! 

1. Sunshine, Sunshine and More Sunshine

Perfect weather is the cornerstone of every good vacation. Let the watermelon and apple scent of the Luin Living Sunshine Candle take you to paradise. This natural soy wax candle's 60-hour burning time should last you long enough for any days Mother Nature doesn't provide the Vitamin D.

2. A Spa Visit

Every good resort stay includes a trip (or two) to the spa. Indulge in some at-home self-care by exfoliating with Rica's Sisal Dry Brush. Follow up with the incredibly indulgent Rica Body Butter. Hydrate after your spa treatment by infusing water with citrus inspired by the body butter's fresh clementine scent. 

Indulge in luxurious spa wear that's perfect for lounging and getting ready in the morning. The Luin Living Spa Dress doubles as a towel making it the most useful pool or beach coverup you could find! Throw in a hair mask and wrap your hair in the Luin Living Hair Towel for mess-free hair moisture. 

3. Time Spent Lounging (with Your Kiddos or Cocktails)

Create your own backyard tropical oasis with a set of Business & Pleasure Co. Sling Chairs. The scalloped valance and fringe adds chic style to any patio or beach, and they're functional. These sling chairs remain compact when folded and are super easy to set up and pack down once it's time to bring them to the beach.

Make your pool area your own resort with luxurious, unique works of art. Neo baskets and pillows are handwoven with neoprene material making them durable poolside... and they float! Drift a basket of cocktails alongside your float, and you can stay in the water all day.

4. Seafood Dinners and Sunsets

Support a local business by ordering curbside pickup or delivery meals that remind you of your favorites at the beach. Set up your own beachy restaurant with Business & Pleasure Co. Tommy Beach Chairs under the shade of a Premium Beach Umbrella. This umbrella, available in 3 styles at Lux In Liv, is as versatile as it is beautiful, built for beach trips and patio decor. The canvas has a UV, mold, and water resistant treatment, which helps keep the color in shape. And, the fringe and retro style adds flavor to any backyard design.

Prefer more of a lounging setup? Grab your favorite outdoor blanket, a bunch of pillows and prepare a picnic. The Business & Pleasure Co. Premium Beach Tent is your spot for wine and cheese with your spouse by evening, and by day, the perfect fort for your little ones. (It's also easy to set up for extra shade come beach time!)
