6 Products That Will Make You Feel Like You’re Somewhere Tropical

Not everyone has access to palm trees and blue waters on a regular basis, but what if certain products could make you feel like you’re relaxing somewhere tropical without leaving home? According to Mental Health America, relaxation has numerous benefits, such as decreasing blood pressure, relieving pain, and improving both the immune system and cardiovascular system. You should always put aside time for relaxing, even if it’s not while lounging on the beach. Here are some products that will make you feel pretty close to it.

1. Beachfront Cocktail Shaker

      Artificial palm trees don’t have real coconuts growing on them, but they’re just as nice to look at. You can feel the tropical vibes inside and outside because artificial palm trees are suitable for both environments. Whether you are using it for shade or to bring some tropical nature into your home, an artificial palm tree is an ideal choice!

      3. Tropical Scented Candles

        You don’t have to be somewhere tropical to enjoy tropical scents. There are candles that were created to specifically smell like the beach and other summer-inspired smells, such as summer fruits and flowers. Plus, candles can be used for calming purposes. Curl up with a good book, like you would on the beach, and take in the scent of a tropical candle!

        4. Banana Boat Spray Oil

          Banana Boat’s spray oil is known for its fragrance of banana, carrot, and coconut. If you’re outside soaking up the sun and want to feel more like you’re having a tropical experience, apply some Banana Boat spray oil. Not only can its scents be found in the tropics, it will help you to get that sun-kissed tan. It’s important to stay cautious when outside in the sun. This oil comes in SPF 8 and 15, so consider your skin before using this, or use additional sunblock along with it.

          5. Pink Flamingos

            Chances are, your backyard will never have pink flamingos walking around, but they would provide that tropical feel you’re looking for. Pink plastic flamingos aren’t as exotic as the real deal, but using them as backyard decor is a fun way to pretend you’re somewhere other than home. They will also add some spice to your next summer gathering!

              If you have access to a pool, floating around in a tropical pool float will make the experience that much better. Choose a pink flamingo to go with your backyard decor, an island-inspired float, a dolphin, or any other float that reminds you of something tropical. You can find them at your local pool supply store.

              These products are all fabulous when they’re solo, but they’re even better when they’re paired up with other products on the list. Whether you decide to look into every product or just a few of your favorites, you’ll be on your way to feeling like you’re somewhere tropical. After all, each of these products were created with either the summer or warm weather in mind. Get ready to relax — the destination is your choice. It may take a little imagination, but at least you have these products as a start.

              10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

              10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

              A honeymoon is important.  The wedding is over.  The months, or even years, of stress and planning are finally over.  It’s time for the two of you to relax, settle in, and start enjoying your time together as you embark on your first journey as a family.

              To make the most of this time for the least amount of money, it’s important to focus on what you want out of a honeymoon.  This isn’t your typical list of touristy honeymoon locations everyone goes to.  Rather, it’s a list of cheap honeymoon experiences a couple can enjoy together, regardless of where it’s at.

              1. Camping

              A week long camping trip is a fantastic way to see how you mesh together as a couple.  You’re put in a low impact “survival” situation where it’s just the 2 of you and nature.  You have a chance to see how your new spouse handles themselves when left with the basics of life.  There are amazing national parks all over the United States where you can camp for a week for $20-30, disconnect from technology, and enjoy some of the natural wonders our nation has to offer.

              2. Staycation

              You don’t have to go anywhere for a honeymoon.  In fact, the tradition of taking a honeymoon vacation is a relatively new one.  Prior to the 19th century, a honeymoon involved staying home together for a month to get to know each other physically.  Think of how blissful it could be to take a full month off work, disconnect from the outside world, and focus entirely on projects together.  You may not be wowing your friends and family with pictures of some exotic location, but they’ll be envious of your escape from the rat race nonetheless.

              3. Island Getaway

              People tend to overspend on their honeymoon vacations to Hawaii, Tahiti, etc.  Going to these places doesn’t have to be expensive.  You don’t need to stay in a 5 star resort when you’re on a Best Western budget.  You’re there to be in the atmosphere of the island, not a hotel room. Book a cheap flight and sleep in a hotel alternative, on the beach or in your car.  It’s the view in paradise that really matters.

              4. Fancy Resort

              Book an expensive resort, spa, or retreat in the city you live in.  While this may seem counterintuitive as a cheap destination, when you consider your savings on airfare and other travel costs, you can afford to be treated like royalty within your own city limits.  If you book a honeymoon package, you’ll end up with a lot of free amenities and extra attention.  There’s no need to fly halfway across the world to live the good life.

              5. Road Trip

              The journey is often more fulfilling than the actual destination.  If you fly out to some exotic locale, you’ll be stuck on a plane for 8-30 hours.  Rent a luxury car, pick a handful of places you each have always wanted to visit, and go on an adventure.  You can keep food costs down by packing your own snacks, but it’s always a good idea to sample the local delicacies wherever you go, even if it’s only a few states over.

              6. Charter a Boat

              If the ocean is your thing, a week-long cruise can cost you $1500-$3000 per person, depending on the destination.  You also have to factor in travel costs to and from the cruise, alcohol, souvenirs, and on-shore excursions.  You’ll also be surrounded by people.  For the same price (and often much cheaper), you can charter your own boat and enjoy the experience in private.

              7. Las Vegas/Atlantic City

              If gambling is your thing, these are the places to do it.  Which one you choose depends on your preference, budget, and proximity.  The way to make this vacation cheaper is to gamble smart.  Stay away from low odd tables (i.e craps, roulette) and read up on the MIT blackjack strategies to beat the house.  If you do it right, you can win enough for a free trip (and gain a valuable team skill in the process).

              8. Themed Retreats

              There are weeklong retreats all over the world where you can fully immerse yourselves as a couple into a hobby you’re both passionate about.  Go on a yoga/meditation retreat, a ranch, a vineyard/farm, a backpacking adventure, treasure hunt, or whatever you’re into.

              9. Working Honeymoon

              Your honeymoon doesn’t have to be a vacation.  For a truly memorable experience, dedicate a week to a charity or volunteer organization.  You can drive out to a campground to help restore it in the offseason.  Maybe you’ve always wanted to volunteer to help out your local animal shelter, plant trees, help the homeless, etc.  Use the time to do something together as a couple that will fulfill you spiritually while contributing to the community.  Just because you’re on a honeymoon doesn’t mean you can’t be productive.

              10. Festivals, Fairs & Special Events

              Every city, state, and country has festivals, fairs, and special events.  Find one you’re interested in.  If you time your wedding right, your honeymoon can be a trip to one of these festivals.  Burning Man, SXSW, Bonnaroo, the Renaissance Fair, regional harvest festivals, Mardi Gras, New Years Eve in Times Square, a movie premiere, or whatever you’re into.  If you plan your honeymoon at the right time in the right place, the possibilities are endless.
