Holidays are time forgiving. Sometimes that “giving” open your overnight holiday guests. Whether your guests are family members or friends that you haven’t seen for a while, you want to make them feel as though your home is their home. It doesn’t take much effort to achieve that goal. Here are some great ideas on how to make your home ready for overnight holiday guests:
Upgrade the Bathroom
No, you don’t have to remodel your bathroom before your holiday guests show up. But it would be nice to make some minor improvements like replacing the old dingy towels. You might also want to put out a basket soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotion just like they do in the hotels. It’s easy to find travel size bottles at most grocery stores or pharmacies of these items.
Leave Snacks and Drinks In A Room
Even though you will tell your guests that they are welcome to have anything in your fridge, sometimes they feel awkward asking for a snack or drink. That’s why you can put some bottles of water and snacks in their room so they will always be something for them to drink or munch on.
Check the Details
You may have set up the guest room but that doesn’t mean it is ready. You need to check the details like making sure there is no alarm clock and the remotes for TV work. Check the lamps for light bulbs and also make sure the outlets are clear for them to plug in their phone chargers. You might also want to freshen the sheets and blankets on the bed. If they have been unused for several months, then they could be very dusty.
Give Them a Key
Just because you have guests coming to your house to stay over doesn’t mean you have to be with them every minute of the day. In fact, you might still have to go to work or do your own shopping. You can give them a key to the house and let them know they can come and go as they please. This is especially helpful if they are renting a car to go in their own excursions.
