4 No-Fail R&R Ideas This Holiday Season

4 No-Fail R&R Ideas This Holiday Season

It’s been a stressful year for everyone, and all the traffic, parties, and Christmas hustle and bustle aren’t really helping to cool things down as 2015 draws to a close. Our advice this Holiday season? Consider the next busy days as a time to relax and rejuvenate, which brings us to the point: Wouldn’t it be nice to reward someone with that in this time of gift-giving?

Ditch the scented candles, picture frames, and chocolates as your choices of what present to give to your special someone/s. Here’s a list of easy, no-fail rest and recreation ideas you can do with your friends and family this Christmas season they will appreciate more!

1. Fly to a favorite #TBT destination. No, not the usual holiday hotspot already teeming with other tourists. Choose a place that bears importance to you and your loved ones. Wherever that is. In your return, relive your memories by reimagining a vintage photo of yours and then sharing it online!

2. Staycation. Many hotels might be fully-booked this season, and the presence of too many people there might stress you out. But that may seem better compared to commuting out of town. City-dwellers will appreciate some rare days of peace and traffic-less roads on their way to hotels, which in turn have spa services for that much-needed massage or scrub. If you’re watching your fitness while staycationing, some hotels have their own fitness centers and even offer healthier, greener options on their menu for you to order.

3. Trek! Yes, waking up early for a grueling walk in the mountains sounds exhausting already. But there’s a reason why trekking has become a fast-growing hobby lately: Views of mountain ranges and beaches, immersing yourself in remote communities, and, basically, being one with nature and alone with your thoughts.

4. Pamper your face and body. After that fatiguing year that was, the face and body will need the pampering they deserve. Opt for these present-perfect products from Burt’s Bees with packages beautifully crafted right for the Holiday season. Here’s a side note: These goodies are wrapped using sustainable material, which underlines the brand’s love for nature!
