Summer Staycation Gift Guide

Posted May 25, 2020 by shooting in Discussion / 37 Comments

Happy Memorial Day to those in the U.S.! I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Today I wanted to announce a new ongoing feature for this summer. Most of us are still sheltering in place as much as we can, and I know that the summer months are going to look very different this year. Therefore, I wanted to start a Summer Staycation series where I highlight ways you can enjoy summer at home.

All I ask of you is to let me know what summer staples you’d like to find alternatives for – camp, vacation, movies, swimming, etc. Even if you already know of ways to enjoy summer at home, I’d still love ideas of things to focus on in my posts!

Now, I’m here today to share some fun items that you could use to get your Summer Staycation started! All of these are affiliate links, so any click and/or purchase benefits me a small percent at no extra cost to you! If, for some reason, the images below are giving you trouble, you can find my picks here.

See anything that looks good? Grab it now, as there might be a sale going on for Memorial Day!

    This is such a great idea! I’ll be following this post to see what people come up with — back

  2. Wonderful list!! πŸ™‚ My husband and I need to buy camp chairs… If you have any recommendations there, we’d love to hear them! My husband wants a nice and big one. He hates the little ones that you have to squeeze into!

  3. Oh my gosh that snow cone maker! I used to have a little Snoopy one when I was a kid and I loved that thing! The Doodle mug is also so fun. And the version of Cinderella with Brandy is one of my favorites!

  4. Happy Summer!! I agree a great projector is a must-have for summer. We got ours on Amazon a few years back and do summer backyard movie nights often during the season. So, we will also have to check out some of the movies you shared above as we should be starting our first movie night any day now!! πŸ™‚

  5. I love this idea! Definitely going to look into those lawn darts- I think that would be a lot of fun. I still need to see Brave… and Onward! I think it would be a fun project to check out and do the 100 movies too. Now I just have to wait until it’s back in stock! Great compilation!

      Glad you found some things you liked! It looks like the 100 Movies Bucket List poster is back in stock.

  6. This idea is amazing. Instead of us all sitting at home complaining we can’t do things we want to do in summer it’s great to be proactive and think of fun stay at home alternatives or what you can do in your local area. I feel like you’ve thought of everything with fun films to watch and the stuff to have snacks like popcorn with it! I’m heartbroken I won’t get to sunbathe by a pool this summer, I was hoping for a nice beach holiday this year, maybe I’ll get myself a paddling pool and sit next to that pretending I’m away. I never actually swim in the pool anyway, just need to dip my toes in.

  7. I have trolled facebook marketplace and have found a trampoline for $75 and a 15 foot 52 inch deep pool for free. This will be our summer fun. We are going to love where we live and enjoy our own backyard! Thanks for linking up to #traffijcamweekend ~Tracy
