5Ways Hotel ifyHome

The holiday season is in full swing (I mean, Christmas is next week you guys!!!) and it’s a great time for family and friends to come to town. If you’re hosting guests over the holidays, amp up your hospitality and hotel-ify your home for this season’s houseguests!


1. Basket of Useful Items


Any guest will appreciate a fully stocked basket of essential toiletries, but go above and beyond for your guests, and they’ll absolutely love your thoughtfulness! Elements of Style has some great suggestions that you might not think of, like extra hair ties, razors, toothbrushes, dry shampoo and more.

2. Charging Station


When your guests have traveled hours, and their electronic devices are as drained as they are, a charging station is a sight for sore eyes! Build your own, like Lil’ Luna did, or simply make sure you have outlets clearly available for your guests. Then, go a step further and even supply the cables!

3. Guest Communication Printable


Speaking of devices, share your wi-fi password with your guests in a fun and creative way with this free printable! Stick it in a cute frame next to the charging station for added functionality!

4. Comfy Throw Pillows


Last year, I made these easy Tartan Plaid Pillow Covers with wood slice buttons to fit a 12” x 16” pillow form. They’d look great on a big comfy bed or in a nice lounge chair in your guest room this holiday season!

5. Guest Bath Upgrades


While you don’t have to completely renovate your guest bath, like I’m currently doing (blog post coming soon!), a few easy upgrades in the bathroom will make any guest feel like they’re at a spa for the day. The Budget Decorator has some great ideas for sprucing up your bathroom without breaking the bank!

Do you host guests for the holidays? What’s your favorite way to help them feel welcome in your home?
