BY DESIGN OF YOUR LIFE
Make sure you have soft, luxurious, & freshly laundered linens--wash cloths, hand towels, bath towels, sheets, & blankets. I try to wash everything within 24 hours of my guests' arrival and I make sure there are extras of each visibly stored.
Plan a mix of meals you prepare as well as food your guests can help themselves to as needed. Having a variety of ready-made food accessible and visible to guests will help them feel more comfortable serving themselves.
TIP: check in advance for dietary needs
I keep a large, glass jar of travel-sized toiletries as well as full size bottles of the products I know my most frequent guests like in the guest bathroom. You never know when they'll forget to pack something.
Make sure there is a universal phone charger, magazines, non-perishable snacks, & bottles of water near the bed so they can enjoy their personal time.
Tip: include the WIFI password in a visible spot in the room.
Adding slippers, a robe, a cozy candle, chocolate, and a soft blanket along with some twinkle lights and holiday decor will create a cozy & festive vibe that will put your guests in the holiday spirit.
