Preparing Your Home for Holiday Guests

The holiday season is notorious for a few things: decking the halls, eating your weight in gingerbread, and visiting holiday guests. If you’re expecting in-laws, cousins, or longtime friends coming in for the holidays, don’t you want to make them feel right at home? Of course, you do!

In order to give your holiday guests the best treatment, here are a few things you should take care of.

How to Prepare for Holiday Guests

The Linens

Whether they’re sleeping on the couch, an air mattress, or on a bed in the guest room, make sure you provide your guests with freshly cleaned sheets, pillowcases, and blankets. If the linens you plan on giving them have been sitting in the closet for a while, make sure to wash before your guests arrive.

The Bathroom Necessities

Even if you think you have enough toilet paper and toiletries to get through the holiday season with your guests, you’re better off stocking up anyway. Having extra toilet paper, toothpaste, shampoo, and other toiletries, your guests will never be stuck without the hygiene necessities they need.

The Surge Protectors

Between cameras, phones, laptops, and other electronics we all use daily, your guests are going to be in need of a place to charge all their devices. Skip the extension cords and opt for safe surge-protectors to ensure you don’t blow risk an overload and blow a fuse. Additionally, it’s best to unplug any charger or device you’re not using so you don’t fall victim to vampire electricity.
