These Tips Will Help You Prepare Your Home For Guests During The Holidays

The holidays are a beautiful time of year, filled with pleasure and fun. We deck the halls with festive ornaments, string lights along the roof, buy holiday gifts, and gather with family and friends to celebrate the season.

Whether your holiday visitors are staying overnight or for a few days, they will need a comfortable area to rest and unwind. Although hosting guests necessitates some planning, you do not need to be concerned. With a little effort, you can make your holiday guests feel at ease and welcome.

Create a Warm Greeting

These Tips Will Help You Prepare Your Home For Guests During The Holidays


Bring your guests into your home with a beautiful entry that celebrates the holidays. Begin by hanging holiday twinkle lights on the trees and shrubs, Christmas wall stickers, lining the front walkway with poinsettias, hanging a seasonal wreath on the front door, and greeting your guests with a cup of hot chocolate. As visitors enter your home, greet them with scented holiday candles, a roaring fire in the fireplace, freshly made muffins, and a lovely holiday tree decorated with ornaments, tinsel, and wrapped gifts.

Prepare the Kitchen.

If you’re having overnight guests, make sure the kitchen is stocked with additional food and drinks. When guests are staying for several days, a self-service arrangement will spare you from having to play short-order cook. Set up a coffee bar in the kitchen with mugs, spoons, and sweeteners. Make toast, sandwiches, salads, and plate lunches on convenient countertop space. Fill a large basket with fresh fruits, snacks, and sweets for late-night refreshments that guests can munch on at their leisure.

Make the guest room ready.

A lovely, inviting guest room will make your holiday guests feel right at home. To begin, make your bed as comfy as possible by using fresh linens, fluffy pillows, and warm blankets or quilts. Leave some mints or chocolates on the pillows and a decent book on the nightstand as a welcome gesture. Make room for your visitors’ personal stuff next:

  • Make room for suitcases.
  • Make room on a shelf or in a drawer.
  • Make some room in the closet.
  • Make room for a laptop computer.
  • Purchase a second shoe rack.


If your visitors will be staying for an extended period of time, make sure they have easy access to wall plugs and consider providing your wifi password. Put a music machine, a small fan, or a humidifier in the room to help you sleep better. If the guest room lacks a television, leave some magazines, a deck of cards, or a puzzle on the dresser. Make sure there’s a flashlight near the bed in case of an emergency.

Make the guest bathroom ready.

Make sure your guests have everything they need, whether the guest bathroom is just off the bedroom or down the hall. Clean the bathroom spick and span, clear out non-basics, fill the space with new scents, and lay down non-slip rugs before you start gathering essentials. Once the bathroom is spotless, set out the following items for your visitors:


  • Towels and washcloths should be replaced on a regular basis.
  • Extra toilet paper rolls
  • Items for the bathroom (toothbrushes and toothpaste)
  • Soap, liquid, or bar
  • Conditioner and shampoo
  • Freshening agent
  • An emergency first-aid kit
