Winter Staycation Ideas

Blaze August 10, 2021

When you need to unwind but can’t take a proper holiday, a staycation is the perfect compromise. Whether you opt for a weekend at an upscale hotel or a cosy rental cabin, you can make the most of your staycation with a little bit of pre-planning.

At Gourmet Basket, we sell a range of gift hampers that are perfect for any occasion — including holidays and staycations. Below, you’ll find a list of fun staycation activity ideas, as well as a gift hamper to pair with each one.

Indulge in breakfast in bed

For most people, enjoying breakfast in bed is a rare occurrence in everyday life. But while you’re on holiday, you have the perfect excuse to stay warm (and well-fed) on a chilly winter morning — especially with a breakfast-in-bed hamper from Gourmet Basket.

Our breakfast hampers are designed to suit everyone’s taste, whether you prefer pancakes or muesli in the morning. For instance, our Breakfast in Bed with Hot Chocolate and Pancakes gift basket is excellent for families with young children, while couples might prefer the Granola Coffee Treat hamper.

Toast to the occasion

Life is incredibly busy these days, so why not take a moment out of your weekend to pause and toast to the moment? Our Champagne and sparkling wine gift hampers are ideal for surprising your sweetheart or enjoying with friends.

Need some inspiration? Check out the Moët & Chandon Champagne gift hamper, which includes a bottle of the popular Moët & Chandon Brut Impérial Champagne, alongside a mini treat box from Chocolatier.

Enjoy a cocktail hour

Every good holiday should have a cocktail (or mocktail) hour. Whether you’re a gin drinker, a rum lover, or a whisky fan, Gourmet Basket has plenty of cocktail gift hampers that are perfect for staycations.

For example, our portable Gin and Tonic Hamper comes with everything you need for a few refreshing G&T’s, including a bottle of Hendrick’s Gin and Fever-Tree tonic water. There’s also a selection of tasty treats to pair with your drink, including wasabi peanuts, salted pistachios, and chips.

Treat yourself to a spa day

When you’re on holiday, it’s important to relax and take some time for yourself — and a spa day is a delightful way to practice this type of self-care. Before your next staycation, check out our lineup of pamper hampers and order your favourite.

Can’t decide? The Organic Pamper Hamper is one of our best-selling spa day gift baskets and is perfect for taking on weekend getaways. It comes with a plush white robe that will keep you warm through winter, along with a pair of organic bath products from Urban Rituelle.

Every Gourmet Basket hamper is wrapped in stylish packaging, including ribbon, tissue paper, and a gift card — making them an amazing gift for yourself or a loved one. Plus, we ship across Australia, so you can have your hamper delivered directly to your home or your staycation destination.
