Since the pandemic, holidaying in the USA has become the norm for a lot of Americans, nostalgic days by the beach and exploring our beautiful land gives us a reset from our busy lives. However, we couldn’t do these Staycations without a little bit of help from some handy tools.
Read on if you want to find the perfect items to make your Staycation a success.
Gorich Pop-up Beach Tent
Come rain or shine, we will make it to the beach which is why a pop-up beach tent is essential! Easy and quick to assemble for maximum beach time and compact so easy to carry if the parking lot is a little further than expected.
Also great for those midday beach naps and shielding ice creams from sandy gusts.
Weber ‘Go Anywhere’ Charcoal Grill
This super handy piece of equipment can be used in so many scenarios, compact and weighing only 6.7kg it can be carried down to the beach no problem. Alternatively use it at your campsite with your RV, it really is a ‘Go Anywhere’ product. Always remember to clean up after yourselves to preserve habitats.
A Portable Reading Tablet
The idea of Staycations is to leave your busy bustling life behind for a bit of tranquillity. Ditch the screens for a few days and immerse yourself in books you’ve always wanted to read. Your brain will thank you when you have to go back to the real world!
We would recommend Amazon Kindles with 10 weeks of battery life and 300 ppi glare-free display that reads like real paper, even in bright sunlight.
Chrome Industries Urban Ex 2.0 Rolltop 30L Backpack
You’ve probably guessed by now that the weather can be the main factor in any staycation. With this in mind, investing in a waterproof backpack is a wise idea.
Chrome industries have a great option offering a 100% waterproof rolltop backpack that can fit a 15” laptop in, perfect for a country hike or down at the beach.
If you do decide to brave the sea on your Staycation, we recommend a well-fitting wetsuit to keep you extra warm.
These Xuker ones are great price and come in a range of colours to make sure you’re visible in the sea. They have flat seams so are comfortable and made of a lightweight neoprene and nylon meaning they dry quick and keep your body temperature up.
StaySafe 5-in-1 Fire Extinguisher
With all of the fire hazards that can come with family living, unfortunately they don't go away when on vacation. The StaySafe 5-in-1 is small but mighty at fighting 5 different types of fires, and extinguishes them in seconds!
Unlike large metal canister traditional extinguishers, its plastic bottle and lid make it lightweight and extremely easy to use, with less mess. Plus it’s non-toxic and eco-friendly!
It’s something we hope we’ll never need, but feel infinitely safer knowing it there to protect us just in case.
