The holiday season usually marks the entry of guests into your home. I try to make sure the guest room are well stocked with everything that my guest might need.
I started thinking about what hotel rooms have stocked in their rooms and put together a side table of awesomeness for my guests. I am sure that don’t expect hotel-like accommodations and amenities from you, but you want to show off your hosting skills. I want my home to feel like a ‘home away from home,’ for my guests by anticipating their needs during the season.
Here is a list of items to stock on the side table for your guests:
3 Bottles of Smartwater
Premium Saltine Crackers
Lysol Disinfecting Spray (Lysol kills 99.9% of bacteria on soft surfaces.)
Basket for magazines, best selling book, and small notebook with pen
Sleep Eye Mask
Small Jewelry Holder
To make it super cute and organized, I used small candy jars and a basket that I had on hand. I found everything else at my local CVS. This is the perfect place for you to stock up on all of theseGuest Room Essentials and tons more! Have you seen their gift aisle? Save while you stock up at CVS – starting Sunday 11/15 through the end of the week, if you spend $15 at your CVS store, you will receive $5 in extrabucks!
Other things that I would have in the room just case on top of a chair or in a chest are extra pillows and blankets. Also, I would stock the bathroom with nice towel of all sizes (body, hand, and wash clothes), shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion, hair brush, makeup remover wipes, and blow dryer.

Love how you prepared and decorated the side table for your guests! Love the stand for the saltine crackers. So pretty!
I have seen a few of these posts the last few days and I will say I want to be a guest with you all! Looks great!
I’m loving these ideas. I never thought about the water or saltines until now but those are really good ideas.
This is so lovely! What a great way to make a guest feel welcome and comfortable in your home. I would love to come visit!
All of these things are sure to make any guest feel welcome in your home. I like that you prepared the room for them to feel comfortable regardless as to how they are physically feeling.
I am always the one roaming the kitchen in a stranger’s house at 2 am, looking for a snack. Having water and crackers on hand is great! #client
What a lovely way to make a guest feel welcome. I’ve never thought of putting up a snack bar.
Thanks for the useful post, I have lots of family member coming next week! I will be ready 😀
I so need to remodel my guest room and get some of these essentials. It is a mess right now.
I want to come to your house! Mine is definitely not that nice for guests!
Those are essential things to stock on the side table. Having everything ready for the guest will make him or her feel extra special and welcome for sure.
This makes your guest room look super cozy. I hope your guests enjoy the essentials. Don’t forget lotion and hand sanitizer too.
I would love to be your house guest! I love how you loaded the side table with all the necessities. It just goes to show how good a hostess you are.
Great setting for a house guest. We don’t have one but this is a great idea.
Your guests would certainly feel at home with all those essentials. Thanks for the ideas. Love ’em.
These are all great essentials for a guest room!! I always leave a snack, yummy candle, and the WIFI password 🙂
What a great post! I really love all those room essentials and would love if someone had that set up for me while visiting.
It’s nice to stock the guest room. I’ve never done it but I totally should!
Wonderful ideas! I don’t have a guest room, but I’ll have to keep this in mind for the future.
Great ideas! I never thought about water or Lysol wipes. They both make so much sense and I will be adding them to my guest room.
What a great idea. I would be your guest any day. A stocked table side is so inviting.
I love this, I need to be a guest in your home. You know how to welcome a guest.
I also keep a basket of sample size toiletries in the guest bath in case they forgot anything.
