Don’t Forget to Pack These 5 Unexpected
Summer Vacation Must-Haves
This week, we’ve got Ella James’s “At Last” on endless replay, because our summer vacation is about to finally come along (and as a result, “life is like a song”). Sure, we packed up all the usual suspects, like our deck towel. But here at Rejuvenation, we have to live up to our name—after all, vacations are for rejuvenating. These 8 out-of-the-box vacation helpers will help bring on the good times and some serious relaxation. Consider this your new packing list (you know, plus a bathing suit or two).
- BATH BLISS
Bump up your bubble baths with our adjustable Bathtub Caddy with Book Rack, which separates the suds and the print to promote effortless relaxation. It fits both built-in and clawfoot tubs, so you can soak just about anywhere. These hardware designs debuted in the 1900s and remain unique and useful today.
- READING RELAXATION
Make summer reading a not-so-guilty pleasure by packing a couple of beautiful design inspiration books in your beach tote or carry-on. May we recommend Heirloom Modern and Remodelista? You’ll go home full of great ideas for crisp and creative fall home updates.
- SUNNY SIPPERS
Start the day with fresh squeezed OJ (and end it with cocktails featuring fresh juices). Whether you’re traveling somewhere tropical or just want to feel sunny inside, our Cast Aluminum Juice Press is the ideal summer house staple. We dare you to have a glum outlook after waking up to freshly squeezed juices and smoothies. Bonus: guests will be dazzled by snazzy yet simple cocktails made with fresh juices. Don’t forget the Pigeon Toe Square Handle Bowl to hold and display the fruit, and the Reindeer Antler Bottle Opener for the fizzy ingredients.
- CLEAN IT UP
Maybe it’s our neatnik mother’s influence, or bad memories of arriving to well-worn condos with dust bunnies the size of actual bunnies, but we now pack a few essential cleaning items in our vacation luggage. Murchison Hume Counter-Safe All-Surface Spray is a great all-purpose option. The petite but mighty Fuller Brush Wooly Bully Duster also comes in handy. No one wants to spend their vacation cleaning, but trust us—20 minutes of de-griming means a week of better unwinding. (Ok, we’ve officially turned into our mother.)
- LIGHT UP YOUR NIGHTS
Make the night twinkle with our 120 LED string lights or 10 shaded string lights. From hotel and condo balconies to sweeping oceanfront verandas, every outdoor vacation space feels more festive with a little bit of mood lighting. Your vacation spot will be so inviting, you may not come home . . . or at least, you may decide to extend your stay in paradise an extra night or two before heading home. Have a great vacation!
