Staycation Essentials: Packing for a Holiday at Home

NEW  |  MAR 1, 2024


In a world that often feels like it's moving at a lightning pace and where costs seem to climb daily, the appeal of a staycation has grown immensely, and it's easy to see why.

A staycation offers the perfect opportunity to unwind, recharge, and discover the hidden gems in your area and the comfort of your home. Forget the worry about the destination, accommodation, whether you've packed all the essentials, or concerns about cell and Wi-Fi reception. A staycation is more of a well-deserved timeout that comes with minimal costs and significantly less stress.

As you embark on this rejuvenating journey, let's delve into the essential elements that elevate your staycation experience, from affordable gym clothes to indulgent spa treatments.

First up, Get Comfortable 

Whether you’re looking to kickstart your staycation with a burst of energy by incorporating stay-at-home workouts into your daily routine or just dress in the comfiest clothes you can find, Mr Price Sport has got you covered — because we all know gym clothes are not just reserved for being active. The affordable gym clothes from Mr Price Sport blend comfort and style perfectly, and you can browse through rails of tops, bottoms, outdoor apparel and even cute summer dresses all in one spot. Whether practising yoga, running, or simply stretching for the remote in your living room, investing in activewear can make your staycation active and comfortable.

Casual Chic is an Option, too 

For those looking to revamp their wardrobe with a touch of retail therapy from some of the best clothing stores in Somerset West, then Mr Price and Out Of The Blue are the stores for you. At Mr Price, you’ll find affordable casual chic ladies' clothes, comfortable men's clothing, and even clothes for the little ones. This is the perfect store for a complete closet refresh for your staycation without breaking the bank.

For those searching for timeless clothing for women that are both stylish and comfortable, Out of The Blue is a must-visit. Here, you’ll find a collection of flowy pieces that’ll have you feeling and looking like you’re on an island resort. 

With these clothing stores, staying on trend and comfortable is easy as you explore the beauty of your staycation destination. And don’t forget to visit Sunglass Hut to grab yourself a pair of stylish sunnies to complete the look. Stay chic and sun-safe during your staycation with a pair of trendy sunglasses.

Treat Yourself 

What’s a staycation without a bit of pampering? Incomplete! Don’t miss out on the opportunity to treat yourself, whether it’s a DIY experience or making a day of it and letting the professionals do their thing. 

If you want to keep it lowkey and have a spa day at home, then you need to visit Dis-Chem and Clicks Pharmacy & Clinic in Somerset Mall. At these health and wellness stores, you’ll find a selection of beauty products, skincare essentials, and even nail supplies so you can get everything you need for a complete head-to-toe pamper day. Stocking some of the best at-home spa treatments in Somerset West, these stores ensure you can feel pampered by the best without the price tag that usually goes along with it. 

And for those looking to get the full spa experience and relax while the professionals pamper them, Sorbet is there to ensure you don’t have to lift a finger. As one of the most affordable beauty salons in Somerset West, they offer a range of treatments, such as soothing massages, rejuvenating facials, or luxurious mani-pedis; Sorbet is the place to be when you need a little TLC.

Hobbies are a Staycation’s Best Friend 

Indulging in a new or cherished hobby is the perfect companion for your staycation. Whether it's finally diving into that book you've been eyeing for ages, putting your thoughts on paper, or trying your hand at creating art, the possibilities are limitless when time is on your side.
