Because we live away from family and friends, we have a guest room that gets used a fair bit. We all love the free little toiletries we get in hotels, don't we? Sometimes because they are convenient and we forgot something, and other times because they're just fun. I keep a basket on top of the dresser in the guest room stocked with certain convenience items (many of which I myself pilfered from a hotel stay). I include
- shampoo and conditioner
- a new wrapped bar of soap
- a wrapped maxipad (which cracked my sister in law up)
- Q-tips and cotton balls
- travel deoderant
- shower cap
- travel mending kit
- pain reliver (Advil or Tylenol)
- an extra wrapped toothbrush if I have one
Ironically, I was first introduced to this company by my friend Aidan, who gave me the Prayer Journal as a going away gift when we moved here two years ago. Aidan is the one who is coming to fill the guest room today.
(Adding edit to those of you who bemoan the lack of a guest room: you could still keep/make a little basket and even a guest journal, and just leave it in the kids' room, or wherever the guests stay. We had a huge walk in closet in our old house, and my daughter would sleep in there if guests took over her room)
