It’s hotting up out there, and we are certain that you must be ready to get yourself some amazing summer-themed freebies! After a fair few cancelled holidays and altered plans, it might not be exactly the summer we expected, but we can still enjoy ourselves at no cost this year.
Get your Summer Glow on
You may not be able to top up your tan on a sunny beach this summer, but who says you need real solar power to look the part? TanRevel are looking for people to sign up and try out some of their self-tanning products at home for free. You can have the perfect summer glow without even stepping past your front door, so why not give it a go?
Keep the Kids Busy
Six long weeks of school holidays can be enough to drive any parent round the bend, so make sure you have the kids preoccupied with plenty to do on those long sunny days! The National Trust has so many amazing free events available for families across the UK. You can help the kids disconnect from their iPads or games consoles and watch them engage with the world around them. See what’s available near you and make the most of these free days out!
Stay Safe in the Sun
Sunburn is the fastest way to ruin a great summer break, so don’t let it get in the way of your fun! Even worse, the impact that UV damage can have on your health is serious – eye damage, aging skin and cancer are all possibilities when you fail to protect yourself from the sun. Always be sure you’re covering up, and take this opportunity to apply to be on Nivea’s Review Panel. This month, they’re giving out sun care products to their testers, so you could be in with a chance of keeping your skin safe from sun damage for free!
Find a Festival Near You
A festival is a great way to get out on a sunny day and soak up some culture or meet new people. However, they can be a pretty expensive weekend, with festivals like Glastonbury normally costing hundreds of pounds for one ticket. Rather than splashing out on Glasto, why not see what’s going on nearer to you? Find free festivals in your area here and head along to enjoy some food, music, and culture at no cost.
Host a Barbecue
Now it’s fair to say that parties can get pretty pricey for the host; by the time you’ve bought food, drinks, or decorations, it seems like you’ve racked up a large bill just for one afternoon of festivities. So the best way to host a barbeque on a budget is to make it a group effort! If you’re inviting lots of people, divide up the responsibilities and make sure everyone chips in – someone to bring drinks, someone to buy burgers, maybe even someone to bring a speaker and sort out the music! If you ensure that everyone does their bit, you can have a wonderful gathering at a way smaller cost than you might think.
