The holidays are approaching fast, and I started thinking about a couple of guests coming to visit. When it comes to hosting a family member or a close friend at home, I’m pretty laid back and I try not to over-schedule my guest but keep things more spontaneous.
It would be nice, though, if I was a little more prepared for an unexpected visit. Thankfully, I was inspired by my partnership with Cottonelle Megaroll’s 4-rolls- in-1 efficiency to design a simple solution and be more hospitable.
Get ready for out-of-town guests – DIY Welcome Basket
I brainstormed about putting together a simple “welcome guest” basket. Then I thought to myself, If I were going to stay at a relatives’ home or close friend, I would love to skip having to ask where to find fresh towels, bedding, etc. Instead, if there were a spot where I could find the usual necessities, I would feel very much welcomed. So I came up with a list of necessities for a welcome basket for a future guest.
- Fresh towels
- Toilet paper
- That’s it!
And I didn’t spend hours putting these containers together. 15 minutes tops.
I had two spare grey containers that I needed to put to good use. Then I went through my stationery supplies and picked two wooden tags. First I thought of using a wood burning tool to label my tags, but then I played with letter stickers I’ve collected during my crafty years and made these tags in no time.
You can spell anything you’d like on the tags, but plan for a short word in order to fit them all in one wooden tag. Or you can get smaller letters and go from there.
Big thank you Cottonelle Megaroll 4-rolls- in-1 efficiency, for inspiring my “Welcome Basket” idea.
