by Shea Homes Arizona on December 5, 2014

If you’re hosting out of town guests for the holidays, make sure you greet them with a few thoughtful touches. These small gestures don’t take a lot of time or money, but the impact is huge.

Make guests feel right at home by including a stack of freshly laundered towels and washcloths. After all, nobody wants to dry off with the same towel Junior just used to wipe off his grimy hands!

Who says fancy resorts and spas are the only ones who should provide guests with fluffy white robes? Turn your guest bath into a private spa retreat with the simple addition of a white robe on a hanger.

  1. Welcome baskets

Fill a basket with your guest’s favorite reading material, snacks and personal care products for a welcoming surprise. You’ll feel just as good giving such a thoughtful welcome basket as your guest will receiving it!

  1. Toiletries

Treat your visitors to mini or full size versions of those essential toiletries they may have forgotten or just didn’t have the space to pack. They’ll be so glad you did!

Dress up your guest room night table with a bedside carafe for water, some fresh flowers and a few books. The only drawback to your hospitality? Your guests may never want to leave!
