Staycation – Outdoor Essentials

Staycation – Outdoor Essentials

Enjoying a ‘staycation’ this summer?  You’re not alone! Over the past few summers, the stay-at-home vacation has become an increasingly popular option – this year in particular, as the costs of travel outside of the UK have gone up. We’re here to help you make the most of a holiday at home, with some fabulous products to help you make the most of your outdoor space. Even if you’re not having a staycation, these ideas will add a little sizzle to all your summer plans!

Cinema entertainment for the whole family

We have two words for you: outdoor cinema. Imagine enjoying your favourite films on a gorgeous summer evening under the stars – right in your own backyard.  Use a projector screen and projector to set up the film, then gather family and friends around with super-comfy seating such as beanbags, with throws and pillows to stay cosy of an evening. Finally, all that’s left is a range of cinema snacks, such as these personalised retro sweets hampers, and a film of your choice!

Get your grill on!

There’s nothing better than hosting a BBQ for neighbours, family and friends when the weather’s nice. There are loads of fun ways to update the classic BBQ, such as spicing up the burgers using the Ultimate Hot-Headz Hamper, getting the kids involved by buying them their own Chicco Food Trunk, or creating your own cocktails in the Kilner 5L dispenser. Looking for culinary inspiration for the perfect BBQ? Try Jamie Oliver’s Super Food Family Classics recipe book! Don’t forget a quality BBQ Grill, a gazebo in case it rains – and you can even have a personalised BBQ apron!

Everyday fun in the garden

Your own garden can double as everything from a play area for the kids to a cocktail lounge for the adults once the sun goes down. Outdoor games such as Swingball, Junior Jump and Slide Bouncy Castle, Play Teepee and this Climbing Frame are fantastic ways to keep the little ones entertained for hours, whilst this Hot Tub is a great idea for the adults. Other essentials might include this outdoor furniture set, garden fairy lights or garden heating solutions for the chillier evenings.

Venture further afield on a camping trip

The ‘Staycation’ page of the Littlewoods website has a whole section devoted to all the kit you could ever need for a camping trip with your family (click here to see). Here you’ll find all the essentials, such as lanterns, camping beds, a tent and sleeping bags. But we’ve also got those extra steps you might not have thought of, like portable toilets, an inflatable sofa or portable gas stove.
