Treats and toiletries
What’s more welcoming than an assortment of your favorite treats? Whether they’re your guest’s candy of choice, light snacks or a magazine, nothing beats a basket of goodies. For a cherry on top, add travel-sized bottles of shampoo, conditioner and lotion.
Photos and artwork
Personalize your guest room by lining it with artwork and personal photos. Choose artwork that matches the style of the bedroom. Have photos throughout the room and as you have guests over time, switch out the snaps. Displaying artwork and photos will make your guests feel at home.
