First things first, I’d just like to point out that as far as I’m concerned, a staycation is a holiday in your home. You’re staying at home for your ‘cation. If, however, you are holidaying somewhere in the fair British Isles you are not staycationing. You are UK-tioning. Right, now we’ve got that out of the way allow me to share with you my UK-tion essential: The Snuggy.
I can’t say the name without smirking but that only adds to the guilty joy. This is the antithesis of fashion but my goodness me, I can no longer imagine camping without one. It is the additional layer needed once the sun goes down – or when it has simply failed to break through the clouds. The hood protects against a smattering of rain and there’s a front pocket large enough for a bottle of wine and four glasses! Further, should you be continuing to work from home, this is your heat-giving saviour on those days when you’re squawking to yourself that it’s bloody July and there’s no way that the heating is going on. And – should this appeal – they also make them sized to fit kids and dogs – aww.
