For many people, the holidays means having family or friends come to visit. I know that when we are fortunate to have someone make the trip up to our house, I really want to go beyond having a place for them to lay their head. Thankfully, there are ways that you can add some special touches to make your guest feel welcome this holiday season.
When we have someone coming to visit, I always start by giving our guest room a good cleaning and make sure the bed is made with clean sheets and my special ‘guest only’ towels are pulled from the closet. However, you can use some of the following items to help you go the extra mile in creating a comfortable environment for your honored guests.
