For many employees, the last days of December are summarised into one sentence, “Shit I have so many vacation days left and I didn’t take any yet.”
As many scramble to inform their teams and departments of this spontaneous I’m-not-coming-to-work-tomorrow-unitl-the-end-of-the-year conversation, we plan for a quick holiday gateway at the same time. We thought well, could startups come in handy in such a turbulent time? If so, what kind of startups? Add to that, the blog post about startups to use in winter was loved by many, so we thought of producing something in a similar style.
We looked our current 82 startups on Startups Galaxy and thought: which would we use ourselves, why would we use it and would we recommend to others? We narrowed down the search to just 3 startups we would use this holiday break.
That comes as no surprise! With Swvl taking over our transportation options during our holidays, we almost check their Facebook page to know the events happening each summer and winter break. (Cairokee last week anyone?)
This winter, Swvl will be sponsoring the Andromeda New Years Party at 360 Sudr. So obviously, they will have a round trip ticket option to Ras Sudr. We predict there will be more options during the winter, so we’re going to put them on top to use to travel around Egypt.
We got no time and money to plan a Christmas trip to Eastern Europe this year, we just got our holiday approved 12 minutes ago.
If we do travel, or if we don’t, we want to buy one of those. It is a blanket with sleeves for extra control, and a pocket for the remote, your phone or hidden popcorn stash. For some of us, this will be the companion during the holiday. That’s because we are having a staycation, with a movie to start the year. Signing up to Netflix with another email account takes place right about now so we can get another free month for the movie marathons we are planning for. Here’s a picture of the Snuggs which can be ordered online as well, as multiple payment options!
Edit: Snuggs has removed the picture from their Facebook.
There’s an offer for Snuggs running during Christmas! Hurry up and grab them right now.
3. DOTS Planner
I do plan on losing weight, finding happiness, and quitting all my bad habits in 2018. These are probably on the wish list of anyone during the beginning of the year. Whether you choose to plan for that or others, DOTS is here to help you!
DOTS Planner is “a unique planner and a toolkit designed to help you change habits, work smarter, track progress and push your creative limits.” Like every new year, we think about what we want to accomplish, this year, we’re planning for them with DOTS!
We’re using these 3 startups during this holiday break! Have more recommendations? Let us know! 😉
Happy holidays and enjoy your vacations and staycations!
