1.) Keep your Guests Entertained

Fill your holiday visits with local fun for all by creating a collection of activities, such as events and tourism spots of interest. Don’t forget to include any Wi-Fi passwords or other important information they should have during their stay.

2.) Supply the Essentials

Provide your guests with fresh toiletries to ensure they have everything they need to feel comfortable. To keep toiletries organized, try arranging them in a basket, glass jar or a pull-out organizer in the bathroom cabinet. This will help your guests stay organized, while adding an extra element of design.  Listed below are some supplies we know your guests will thank you for:

  • Shampoo and conditioner
  • Toothbrush, toothpaste and mouthwash
  • Deodorant
  • Facial wipes
  • Lotion
  • Hair brush and hair dryer
  • Contact solution

3.) Help Keep Holiday Attire Organized  

Living out of a suitcase can be tricky, especially around the holidays. Provide your guests with hangers and closet organizers to prevent wrinkling. Adding a hamper is also a great idea to help keep clean and dirty clothes separate.

4.) Provide Clean Linens

Be sure to stock the linen closet with plenty of fresh towels and linens. By doing so, your guests will avoid feeling like a burden when asking you for more.

5.) Create an Inviting Mood

Last but not least, the bed is the first thing your guests will see when they walk into your room. Set the mood of their stay by making the bed look comfortable and inviting with extra pillows, throws and blankets. To add a personal touch, create a display tray with some of your guests’ favorites such as:

  • Books
  • Chocolates
  • Candles
  • Magazines
  • Photos

Whatever you decide to add to your tray, make it special to show your guests how much you care about them.
