MAYBE YOU’RE JUST ABOUT TO HEAD OFF ON YOUR SUMMER HOLIDAYS, OR PERHAPS YOU’VE RECENTLY RETURNED HOME.
Either way, the His & Hers team knows just how big a difference taking some time out to rest and rejuvenate can make.
However, for those times when you can’t just jet off to unwind by the pool, it’s worth finding ways that you can make every day feel a little more special and relaxing.
Here are a few of His & Hers’ favourite ways to give every day a holiday vibe.
- If you haven’t already, invest in Amazon Prime for unlimited streaming of films and TV. For those days when you just can’t seem to switch off from work, we swear by the effectiveness of spending just half an hour relaxing with your favourite comedy. We’re also a tad hooked on Amazon’s next-day delivery service, which means you can be reading a book in your garden (which is surely the next best thing to powering through your paperback by the pool on holiday) within hours. Also, it may be a cliché, but we never get tired of picking up some popcorn, changing into our PJs and finally watching that film we’ve been meaning to see from the comfort of the sofa. Here’s a link to sign up to a free 30 day trial of Amazon Prime (giving you plenty of opportunities to binge watch this year’s best films and TV series). After the 30 day trial, Amazon Prime costs just £7.99 a month and you can cancel any time.
- If you fell in love with your hotel room during a recent holiday and never wanted to leave, have a think about whether you can replicate some of the things that made it feel so luxurious in your own home. Admittedly, if it was the stunning sea views you adored, you may not be able to recreate them back in the UK! However, if you felt great every time you wore the hotel’s towelling robe, treating yourself to something similar could make lounging with your morning cuppa suddenly feel more indulgent. Alternatively, if it was the luxurious bedding, the incredibly comfortable mattress or pillows, or even the great flat screen that made your stay special, perhaps it’s time to treat yourself to some hotel-style bedroom essentials to make waking up feel extra indulgent every day.
- While the evenings are warmer, even the simplest of steps like taking a drink outside to savour in the garden when you get back from work will make you feel like you’re making the most of the weather. If you’re blessed with a big garden, this could be the time to treat yourself to some outside lighting and ensure that your garden furniture is in good order so you’ll want to use it. And if you don’t have a garden of your own, why not choose a sunny afternoon to pack a picnic.
We’re very proud to bring you this offer in association with Amazon Prime. We’ve been Amazon addicts for years and have been enjoying their films, videos and super speedy delivery service for longer than we care to admit so it really was an honour to have the opportunity to join forces with them to spread the word about this offer. We hope you enjoy using it!
