5 tips for hosting guests this Christmas

Whether it’s the in-laws or your best friends, it’s likely you’ll have a few guests visiting during the festive season. Already one of the most stressful (and happiest!) times of the year, adding additional house guests at Christmas can sometimes add to the strain, so we’re here to help you host your guests in a stress-free way. You’ll no doubt give your home a clean and tidy, but here are a few extra tips that might help make the visit more festive than frustrating.

Fluff the towels (or buy new ones)

There’s something about arriving to someone’s house and having your towel neatly placed at the end of the bed that feels so welcoming. If you want to elevate this further, roll the towel for a hotel feel.

Little touches that will make it feel like home

When guests come over it’s nice to have elements that will make them feel at home. From a chocolate they may love to toiletries they may need. A thoughtful touch will allow your guests to feel comfortable in a new space.

Add a festive touch

Don’t feel like you need to add a large Christmas tree to make the guest space feel like Christmas, simple additions such as small standing decorations or a stocking will do the trick.

Light a candle for their arrival

A candle can make coming into a new space feel so soothing and welcoming, and for Christmas in Australia we suggest Glasshouse’s Night Before Christmas or White Christmas scents.
