We think that a fun night “in” is great for couples. We apply that same thinking to any vacation. With travel prices on the rise, why not plan to sequester your partner for a few days of low-cost, highly romantic fun? (If you are lucky enough to be planning a getaway, read our article on Vacationing With a Vibrator for great travel tips.)
Ground rules: Plan time off together. Make sure you can both be “disconnected” from work or family obligations. Don’t invite any friends or family to join in your staycation—it’s meant for just the two of you—and it’s meant to be a romantic and fun escape.
Set the mood. Use candlelight wherever and whenever possible. Make your own musical soundtrack by downloading tunes that are special to you and your partner—or create a few themed playlists based on your staycation plans.
Get ready. Make sure your favorite TROJAN™ VIBRATIONS Vibrators have fresh batteries, and keep them where you can easily grab them when romantic inspiration strikes!
Plan a few, fun, day activities: Go local! Have you truly explored your city or town? Get online with your local chamber of commerce website and find adventures or day trips for the two of you. If possible, take a short road trip (or a romantic train trip) to a part of the country you rarely get to see like the beach, the mountains or a museum.
Plan your evenings, too. Think ahead and rent a few of your favorite romantic movies, or make a rule that you won’t watch any TV for one or two nights. Check out local takeout menus so the “cook” in your house can truly take time off. Instead of a traditional meal, get some different cheeses and unique wines from a local specialty grocer and expand your palate. As you begin to really unwind, you may find that intimacy comes naturally. Of course, keep your TROJAN™ VIBRATIONS Vibrators close at hand for enhanced fun.
Splurge a little. On vacation, you usually allow for a little excess. Eat at one of the finer restaurants in your city, shop in a special local store and buy a souvenir--or maybe have a professional couples massage at a day spa. Choose one or more of these types of activities and give in to your whims—just explore during your staycation.
Take photos. Document the fun you’re having while you’re out and about. Have a stranger snap the two of you together at a local landmark and photograph the people and places you see.
