Share via:

The Ber months have already started and most of you are probably looking forward to a perfect holiday getaway. But with the pandemic still happening, it’s safer to spend the holidays indoors than to go outside. But don’t worry holidays can still be fun as long as you plan it right and spend it with your loved ones. 

Here are some ideas on how you can make your staycation worthwhile:

Plan a movie night

Since cinemas are still not available outside, one of the things you can do is to plan a movie night with your loved ones. This could actually be a lot more fun than your usual cinema date in the malls because you could rewatch all your favorite movies in one place.

  • Organize the movies that you will be watching ahead of time. It’s more fun when you already have a list of movies to watch. You can also choose a genre of movies like Christmas movies. Just make sure to also include your family or friends’ favorite movies. 
  • Arrange your space in to a cozy one. If you will be placing your DIY cinema in your living room, you can put sofa beds or comforters in the floor and add some more pillows to make everyone comfortable. You can also add decorations like Christmas lights and set dimmer lights to give a more cinema vibes in your home. 
  • Prepare Snacks! Don’t forget to prepare pick-a food for the guests. Nothing is better than watching movies with your favorite snacks
  • Be more creative! You can also prepare fake tickets, put a snack station, or set a projector to have a bigger view of the movie.

Themed Party

Another great idea that you could do in your Staycation is to have a themed party or costume party. This is a perfect idea especially for family with little kids who can’t go out and experience children’s party with their playmates. It’s a perfect setting to get together and have fun!

  • Think of a theme that resonates your family’s favorite movie, place, or any setting. 
  • Decorate your place based on the theme that you have chosen
  • Dress accordingly with your chosen theme. Make sure to challenge everyone to be creative and give a prize to the most creative person in the room. 
  • Plan fun activities related to your chosen theme. You can create a program with pageants or interactive games to make your staycation more exciting. 
  • Prepare Food and Drinks. A fun party always come with something to fill our stomachs. 

Game Night

If you want something less of an effort in preparation and decoration, another great idea that you could plan is game night. This is perfect if you will be having a staycation with your friends. This is fun and exciting because you could plan games and take a break from your phones. 

  • Plan your indoor games. You can choose from various games like Monopoly, Uno Cards, Twister, Jenga, and many more. If you don’t have any available games like these, there are also a lot of interactive classic games you can choose from. You can do charades, Pinoy Henyo, Truth or Day, or you can even create your own game. 
  • Include prizes! Nothing makes a game more exciting when you know you can win in the end. If you will do this with your friends, create exciting prizes that will catch their attention and make them participate actively. 
  • Lastly and again, don’t forget to have your favorite foods and drinks. 

Date Night

If you will spend your staycation with your partner, nothing is sweeter than preparing a date night and cooking for your special someone. With the restrictions that restaurants have nowadays, having a nice dine in experience is not the same as before. But don’t worry, you can still have a sweet and great time with your partner just by staying at home. 

  • Choose a theme of your date night. Make sure it is something memorable for the both of you. 
  • Decorate your place. If you are planning to have dinner date, prepare some candle lights, table setting, and flowers in your dining area. But if you opt to having a more casual date, you could just arrange your living room into a cozy area and prepare indoor activities that both of you would love.
  • Prepare yours and your partner’s favorite food. If you have time, you can cook or ask your partner to cook with you. I’m sure there are lot of available recipes online that you can try. But if you are having trouble with time and you want to just relax and spend all the time with your partner, there are also foods you can order online.
  • Connect with your partner. Even if you are just inside your homes or just staying in a condominium, it is still very important to connect with your special someone. This is a great time to just talk and spend quality time. You can also have games that will challenge the both of you to get to know each other deeper.
