9 Cool Accessories For Your Holiday Home
Owning your own holiday home is a special feeling, it’s your home away from home, which means you can decorate and accessorise as you please. It’s your space to inject your personality and create a space for your needs, whether it’s a fun area for children or to create a cosy home living space for you and your partner. When it comes to accessories for your holiday home, there is an abundance of choice on the market. We live in a world where technology is constantly expanding, providing the perfect accessories for everyday life. To help make your holiday home even better, we have put together a list of our top 9 cool accessories for your holiday home.
1. Solar digital radios
Set the scene, it’s a beautiful evening, you’re enjoying a casual drink on the decking of your holiday home, and you fancy listening to a spot of music. A solar digital radio is a perfect choice. Batteries can be recharged by sunlight or via the mains and a full charge will give you up to 20 hours of entertainment. They’re also a perfect start to the day. Enjoy a hot coffee on a crisp morning while listening to news updates or your favourite song.
2. Internet dongles
We live in a world where a lot of what we do is online, and sometimes we just can’t go without. An internet dongle is a perfect solution. A dongle is a small USB device that allows you to access the internet. This is done via your personal computer and they use your mobile network signal to connect to a broadband network. It’s perfect for those who need access to work files, emails or even if you want to stream a movie from Netflix! You need to contact your mobile network provider to find the best deal for you, prices will vary depending on internet usage, but generally, they are quite reasonable these days.
3. Fairy lights
Fairly lights might seem like a simple concept, but they have the ability to transform a holiday home into the perfect children’s “den”. Invest in cheap designs, shapes and colours, and create a sparkling cove with the children in your holiday home. It’s a great way to get the kids involved in something different – especially if it’s a rainy day. Watch movies and play games in your new den or even invest in a holiday home inspired play tent. Perfect for indoor entertainment!
4. Stained glass sun-catchers
These are perfect for a summer or winter day. Displayed from the window of your holiday home, this simple trinket catches the light of the sun and can make your holiday home glow with both summer and winter sunshine. They are priced from as low as £3 to £30, so you can find one that fits your budget.
5. Folding bookcases
A holiday, no matter what the duration, is the perfect opportunity to catch up on your favourite books. While a kindle has become a popular alternative, a folding bookcase is a perfect accessory for book worms. They add a cosy dimension to your holiday home, and they are portable! Pop on the kettle, pick a book and escape reality. You can also use them as a display stand for souvenirs, antique items, or hand-made crafts.
6. Portable gas BBQ grills
Did you know May is national barbeque month? As if you needed another excuse. Get yourself a compact BBQ grill and invite the family round for a get-together. BBQs come in a range of models and prices, so before you buy, consider mobility requirements and ease of application, such as if it comes with a travel case, does it have wheels for easier movement and does it require assembling and disassembling?
7. 3-in-1 breakfast station – for those lazy days!
Holidays are for relaxing, so the easier gadgets can make life, the happier we are, right? While you have access to a wonderful kitchen in your holiday home, imagine if there was an accessory that could make you an entire cooked breakfast without you having to leave your cosy bed, or stand over the cooker multi-tasking. Not just egg on toast, a full breakfast: eggs, bacon, toast, and coffee! It exists. Perfect for those lazy days, or when you’re multi-tasking getting the children ready and cleaning the holiday home, the 3-in-1 breakfast maker can prepare your meal for you!
8. TV lift cabinet for the end of your bed
Nothing is better than laying in bed on a cold spring morning and with the click of a button getting access to your TV. Perfect for lazy relaxing mornings, or early nights enjoying a movie. Perfect for couples, or even a great chance to let the kids join in on cosy movie viewings (if you don’t mind the intrusion!). Since they’re in cabinet form, they are also great for storage, and you are able to move them around with ease.
9. Solar garden lights
If you’re lucky enough to have your own private garden at your holiday home, why not make it a tranquil haven? Solar garden lights are the perfect way to achieve this. Surround the area with rows of lights, or sporadically dot them around. You could even get hanging solar lights to hang on the fence. They come in lot’s of colours and styles, you can have them glow white, blue, red, purple, green or whatever you want! The best thing about them? They are fuss free, easy to set up, and require no effort from you. Let the sunlight do its work, and you’ll have a peaceful serene garden by nightfall, perfect for relaxing and stargazing.
