5 Favorite Rainy Day Ideas

Do you love the soft pitter patter of raindrops against your windowpane? Or do you feel a sense of gloom & doom at the first signs of a thunderstorm?

Whether you love the rain or hate it – we think we have the perfect answer to a rainy day. Here’s what America loves to do when it rains – with these ideas, your day can’t go too wrong, can it?

1. Brunch it up!

Pick up your partner or best friend and visit your favorite cafe for a piping hot cup of coffee and heaping spoonfuls of chili and cornbread. Yum. Dress down, be sleepy and indulge your taste buds; it’s a rainy day!

2. Plan a movie marathon

Stay in bed and catch up on your favorite films. We’re talking buckets full of butter popcorn topped with crispy bacon (if you’re into the bacon life) – let the magic of cinema take over your day. Real life can wait for when the sun is shining.

3. A lazy makeover at home, si’l vous plait?

Remember all those bookmarked videos for home facials and DIY body scrubs? Give yourself a lazy makeover your own way and come out of your rainy day, feeling squeaky clean and brand new!

4. Let your creative juices flow

Be it origami, crochet or DIY lamps – nurture your creativity and feel at peace. With your favorite rainy-day playlist and some hot chocolate, enjoy the stillness.

5. Take a nature walk

Pick up your umbrella and embrace the great outdoors. Kids love splashing in puddles on rainy days and it’s a great way to enjoy some quality family time. Put on those rubber boots, soak in the sounds and smells of the earth and be one with nature.
