Staycation Home Ideas – Staycation Gift Ideas

Because of self-quarantining and social distancing, the “IN” thing this year is staying home. 2020 will be known as the summer of the staycation.

So, without further ado, here are some Staycation Home Ideas!

Most people use summer vacations as a way of connecting with the family. Vacations are supposed to be the time we unplug from the normal 9 to 5 and unwind from the chaos that we deal with on a daily basis. Help your family make the best of the staycation that is being forced on us all.

The good news is with the right equipment and atmosphere we can all relax, unwind, and have a little fun without breaking quarantine and going stir crazy. Relaxation equals no cabin fever and we will try to do it without breaking the bank (hopefully).

At we want to help by offering a few ideas on how to improve on your summer of solitude.

First off, I hope you have some type of backyard space. This will be your saving grace. (If you already have a pool and outdoor furniture skip ahead.) Pools, Sprinklers, buckets of water, water guns, anything that can keep you cool in the heat of the summer are going to be the first items you will want to have.

Second, you will want some tables, chairs, and some type of shade (umbrella’s anyone?). You don’t always have to buy. Use nature. Large tree stumps and large rocks can take the place of man-made furniture. Look indoors and see if any of the furniture can weather the outdoor sun and summer hijinks!

If you have trees, hammocks are always fun.

I would also invest in some sunglasses, sunscreen, and some type of outdoor tableware. Paper plates are just fine, although this time of year Walmart usually has some cheap plasticware if this interests you more.

Pick up a projector and hang a sheet off the back of the house create your own outdoor theater. (We have far too many mosquitos for this to work for us, even with tiki torches and citronella candles!)

For a good staycation the thing to remember is have fun.  We have to enjoy the time we are spending with family, and anything that can keep the kids occupied in the yard is a good thing.  No one wants to end up nuts in the house!

A staycation means a lot more than just pushing the family into the yard and slamming the door. There are a host of things that people are missing out on by not experiencing a “normal” summer. With a little creative thought, you can help to lessen the loss.

  1. I love your article. I’ve not come across many stay at home ideas like these. I am thinking about getting the hammock for our back garden.

    Many Thanks
