12 Stays of Christmas: A Gift Guide to the Best Staycation Deals

by Larissa Joson

Ah, Christmas. Just the mere mention of the season evokes two kinds of feelings all at once.

There’s a sense of joy knowing the holidays mean getting a break from work, eating a ton of delicious food, and gathering the people you love all in one place. On the flipside, there’s also that creeping worry from the other things that this season knowingly brings in—think next-level traffic, huge crowds, and crazy expenses.

But what if we tell you we could let you in on the Christmas celebration that you really want? You know, the holiday of your dreams that has all of the happiness sans the stress. Well, Deal Grocer’s limited-time collection of curated staycation deals gives you exactly that—a chance to spend the season completely relaxed, with your loved ones in one room and all kinds of food imaginable within reach.

And if you already made Christmas plans as early as now, we took care of that, too: Every deal here is still the best gift to give yourself or someone you care about because they’re all redeemable anytime until the end of 2019!
