Getting Ready for the Holidays with Guests Coming to Visit


With the upcoming holidays, the time of year for family and friends is quickly approaching.  Many family and friends get together from different areas around the US or even the world and stay at each other’s homes. When these guests are staying with you, here are some great tips to help make their stay more comfortable. 


Clear out any unwanted items in guest bedrooms.  Having closet space and drawer space with the appropriate hangers helps your guests unpack and relax while staying in your home.  Having fresh sheets with several pillows and additional blankets for incoming guests is polite, clean and helpful. If individuals are used to different temperatures, adding or subtracting blankets is an easy remedy to thermostat disagreements.  If you have an extra alarm clock great, however nowadays most people use their mobile phone alarms.


To keep the stay a great experience, provide clean towels and mini toiletries for your guests.  Going the extra mile is a great host tip and your guests will want to come back often.  Sometimes bathroom schedules are necessary in order to get all the family members and the guests capable of getting ready during the day.  By adding a desk mirror or wall mirror to the guest bedroom, it can help with the use of bathrooms for multiple people.

Kitchen Comforts

Providing favorite foods is a great way to have a happy reunion.  Does your guest drink tea or coffee?  Are they allergic to certain foods or just have to have lots of chocolate for their holiday stay?  Reaching out to your guests before their arrival will help you stock your refrigerator to make this holiday season a fun one.  Taking care of these little tasks before your guests arrive allows you to also enjoy their company while they are with you rather than running around to make sure everyone is happy for the holidays.

Enjoy your time with your guests and enjoy the upcoming holidays!
