Make Your Bed in the Morning

Whenever you stay in a hotel, it’s always great to walk in and see a nicely made bed at the end of the day. While you likely don’t have room service to make it for you at home, it’s worth the extra effort to make your bed in the morning!

Sleep In

Sleep in if you can! Have a slow lazy morning. Enjoy coffee and a good book in bed before starting your day.

Splurge on a New Candle

Giving your home a new scent can help freshen up the place and make it smell like a hotel!

If you’re yearning for a beach vacation, try something with a beachy scent. Prefer a camping trip? Look for a candle with a more earthy scent.

Get Some New Fluffy Towels

One of the things I love about staying in nice hotels is they usually have big fluffy bath towelsNow’s a great time to finally replace your old ratty towels and get some new ones!

Take advantage of your time at home, relax in your plushest bathrobe and slippers all day long!

Leave a Chocolate on Your Pillow

While leaving a chocolate on your pillow in the morning might seem silly, it will be a sweet treat for you to enjoy at the end of the day. These Ghirardelli Minis are perfect!

Have Breakfast in Bed

Having breakfast in bed when staying at a hotel is one of my favorite indulgences! If you’re quarantined at home with a partner or roommate, try taking turns bringing each other breakfast in bed.

Don’t have a tray? This is a great, cheap optionIf you’re worried about crumbs or getting sheets dirty, put a towel down first.

Order “Room Service”

Give yourself a break from cooking and order in! Use an app like UberEats or DoorDash to order in from your favorite restaurant.

Upgrade Your Water

I don’t know about you, but I feel like hotels always have the best fruit infused water. This pitcher allows you to infuse your own water with fruit — check out this post for some refreshing recipes!

Trade Your Normal Drink For a Fancy Cocktail

Don’t just stop at water, upgrade your Happy Hour beverage of choice too! Instead of grabbing your usual glass of wine, look up some fun cocktail recipes to try at home.

Switch Up Your Music Playlist

Take a break from Today’s Top Hits and listen to something a little different! If you’re craving a beach vacation, try listening to something with a tropical feel like this Spotify Playlist.

Have a Spa Day

Give yourself some #SelfCare and have a spa day! Relax, give yourself a facial, put on a face mask, paint your nails, etc!

Take a Fancy Bubble Bath

After your Spa Day, pour yourself a glass of wine (or champagne if you’re feeling real fancy) and take a nice bubble bath. But not just any bubble bath… go all out! I’m talking candles, bath salts, bath bomb, flower petals, all the things!
