If your flights have been cancelled for the last few months, or international travel plans quashed because of COVID, its time to look into your own backyard for travel adventures. For special people in your life that love to travel, gifting them with one of these quarantine-appropriate gifts will help to quell the blues that many of us are experiencing. Here are 8 great options, from tents, spa treatments, to RV mattresses-and all are online shopping-friendly:
1. Replace A Bed Frame
Just because booking hotels may have slowed up considerably doesn’t mean you can’t transform your bedroom into a beautiful space that evokes a modern hotel stay. Having a bed frame be the focal point of the bedroom makes a worthwhile gift. Nest Bedding’s hand-made Arcadian Bed Frame is made of 100% reclaimed wood and comes in three different finishes: raw, whitewash, and greywash.
2. Camp In Your Backyard
For those outdoorsy types that want a fun summer adventure, you can pitch a tent literally in your own backyard (or take a quick road trip somewhere in nature). The Backcountry x NEMO Nachi tent is perfect for a couple’s getaway or small family as it fits 2-3 people. There is a rain fly and mesh canopy for adventures where weather can be uncertain.
3. Microneedling Treatment
Venturing outside of the house for a spa treatment is a good idea if the facility is practicing mask wearing and frequent hand washing. Microneedling addresses skin concerns like fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, and acne scars using small punctures in the skin as a form of collagen induction therapy. If you are in the tri-state area, the new Closter, New Jersey-based Bare Aesthetic med spa just opened and offers the microneedling treatment in an airy and hygienic space.
4. A New SUV For A Road Trip
Yes, a brand-new SUV is a big investment, but with travelers grounded from flying, taking a road trip this summer with the family would be the ultimate gift! The new 2020 Buick Encore GX has premium features like Front Pedestrian Braking; Automatic Emergency Braking; Forward Collision Alert; Lane Departure Warning; and a High Definition Surround Vision camera system: all perfect for an active getaway.
5. Natural Soaps
A hike through the forest? Paddling through the everglades? Or catching sun rays on the beach? Soap Cauldron offers over a dozen different natural soaps that come in earthy scents to allow you to reminisce on these travel adventures while you shower. There are scents like Summer Solstice, Rosemary & Mint; and Lemongrass.
6. Glow Light
Instead of venturing into the forest by candlelight, you can do the same thing from home with Casper’s new Glow Light. The light is designed to help you fall asleep without illuminating your room with the harsh light of a cell phone. It was also designed to gradually dim as you fall asleep!
7. Comfy Mattress for RV Travel
If you’ve decided to venture out of the house and hit the road in an RV this summer, then its essential to ensure you get a good night’s sleep while your vehicle is stationary. RV Mattress by Brooklyn Bedding offers the Brooklyn Aurora mattress in 9 different sizes, which includes some small sizes for your RV. The cooling gel beads in this mattress liquefy at high temperatures: an important distinction for hot summer travel road trips.
8. Organic Face Masks
The mattress giant, Avocado Green, has ventured into the mask-making space by designing organic cotton face masks. The masks come in packs of 4 and are made with 2 layers of organic cotton and also has a pouch for a filter (not included). They also have a little style to them too: they tie in the back for a chic look.
