How to Honor Memorial Day at Home

How to Honor Memorial Day at Home

This Memorial Day weekend is sure to look different than usual. Though most of us won’t be traveling, we can’t think of a better way to honor our fallen war heroes than staying home to keep everyone around us safe. To make the most of this new normal, we’ve come up with a few fun ways to celebrate your day off from home.

Take Your Picnic Virtual

You may not have dewy green grass or a salty ocean breeze this year, but you can still create a fun picnic in the comforts of your home. Lay out your picnic blanket in the sunniest spot of your space, get dressed in your Sunday best (floppy hat included), and prepare your favorite spreads and snacks. For the full effect, FaceTime your loved ones so everyone can feel together. You can even play nature sounds or download a National Parks screensaver to evoke the full spirit of the great outdoors.  

Book a Mental Vacay

This holiday, give your mind a break. Reward yourself for all the hard work of surviving these past few months during an unprecedented time in the world. Set the mood by lighting a few candles and whipping out your favorite journal to create a gratitude list. Add to the zen by brainstorming a new mantra for the summer or try a guided meditation to quiet your thoughts and help you feel centered.  

Treat Yourself 

To honor you during this time, we’re giving you a special one-day offer on your beloved scents: take 15% off sitewide this weekend! (Through Monday, 5/25) Stock up on your faves, invest in some thoughtful presents, or gift yourself something new.
