Guest Basket

‘Tis the season for company, at least in the Hawley house it is. A lot of our family & friends will be, or have already, visited us this spring & summer. Since our house turns into a bed and breakfast occasionally (which we LOVE), we always want to make sure our guests feel as comfortable and rejuvenated as possible. We want them to check what is in the fridge, flip through the magazines on the coffee table, walk around barefooted, etc. For the past couple years, we have been doing something that has really added to the comfort of ours visitors: a guest basket.
I put this basket in the guest room and fill it with goodies for them:

First and foremost, a bible

Granola bars

Bottled water

Lotion

Hand sanitizer

Fingernail clipper set

Small sewing kit

Toothbrush, I make sure these are individually wrapped for sanitary reasons

Loofa

Shower gel

Channel guide (some TVs are just harder to navigate)

Chapstick

A Houston magazine

Pen and stationary

If you want to add a guest basket to your guest room, don’t forget to refill it between visits or else that could be really awkward (especially with the loofa and toothbrush LOL). Be sure to let your guests know that they can feel free to dig through the basket for anything they may have forgotten. Hope this helps when you have visitors :-)
