Many of us (like it or not) are expecting guests over the holidays.

Creating a guest welcome basket is a great way to make your holiday guests feel extra special.  Add in a few necessities as well as some special items just for your house guests.  They will love the personal touch and the fact that they don’t have to ask you were to find the towels!

Check out our suggestions below on things to add to your own guest welcome basket.

Ideas for creating a guest welcome basket to make your guests feel more at home!

Start with a great basket or bin to add in all of your goodies.  This rustic pineapple wood box is perfect and can be found at your local Old Time Pottery!  The pineapple is actually a symbol for welcome or hospitality.  Adding your items to a basket like this one is sure to be a hit.  When guests are not in town, stash this in the corner of your guest room or under the bed.  Refresh the supplies before any guests arrive.

Next add in items that your guests might need to the basket.  Some items might include:

  • Towels
  • Extra blankets
  • Toiletries
  • Toothbrushes
  • Kleenex
  • Snacks
  • Bottled water
  • Air freshener
  • Hangers
  • Wi-fi password
  • or any other item that will make your home comforting

Try to think of items that your guests may need during their stay or they may have forgotten at home.  Add everything to your guest welcome basket and put in the center of the bed.

Now everything your guest needs for an amazing stay at your home is all within reach.  They don’t have to bother you with questions about where towels or toiletries can be found.  This small but thoughtful gesture is one that your guests will not forget anytime soon.

Be sure to pick up both the basket and your supplies at your local Old Time Pottery on your next trip.  Your holiday guests will love your guest welcome basket!
