Whenever I have overnight houseguests coming I do the usual things to prepare: clean sheets, fresh towels, etc. But I like to take it one step further by preparing a basket of guest bedroom supplies to have waiting for them in the guest bedroom.
You don’t want guests wandering through your house at night hoping to find a drink of water, or worse yet, not brushing their teeth! So if you anticipate what they may need and put together a basket of travel sized supplies then they will not only feel welcomed, but also have a great time staying with you.
Here is a list of things to consider having in the guest bedroom supplies basket (there is a printable version at the end of this list):
Wine (like the little bottles that come with their own plastic glass attached)
Kale chips (if you don’t like the person especially)
Makeup remover toilettes
Bathrobe (I keep one for a man and one for a woman on hand, I wash and reuse these)
Slippers (I get them at the dollar store and let the guests take them home)
Guest book (I love having guests write something, such a great souvenir for me)
Flameless candle (to adjust darkness of the room)
