30 Cozy Guest Room Essentials (Holiday Edition)

As the holidays are rolling in many of us will be hosting guests be it family or friends from out of town. So, I put together a list of 20 essentials that every guest room requires to keep your guests as comfortable & at home as possible. This list is assuming that there is a bed and mattress already in the guest room.


  1. Extra blankets & pillows
  2. First aid kit or bandages
  3. Alarm clock
  4. Telephone
  5. Water bottles
  6. Tissue boxes
  7. Trash can
  8. Mirror
  9. Fresh bath towels (and washcloths)
  10. Hangers (if no closet in the room, provide a clothing rack as well)
  11. Reading lamp
  12. Hamper or empty laundry basket (for dirty clothes/towels)
  13. Luggage rack (or an extra chair to place luggage on)


  1. Shampoo & Conditioner
  2. Body wash (bubble bath for extra coziness points!)
  3. Hair dryer & hair brushes
  4. Toothbrushes & toothpaste (we all forget these when traveling!)
  5. Disposable razors & shaving cream (for both men & women)
  6. Feminine products (tampons, pads) & hot water bottle
  7. Lotion (Eucerin is my personal favorite for really dry, cracked skin)
  8. Chapstick (because no one likes lip frostbites)
  9. Q-tips
  10. Makeup remover wipes
  11. Nail polish remover
  12. Hairspray


  1. Scented candles (preferably in a holiday scent) & matches
  2. Reading material (recycle your old magazines or books; also crosswords, sudokus)
  3. Paper & pens
  4. Wi-Fi name & password (place in a frame)
  5. Plant or fake flowers (spruce up the room a little!)


I hope this list makes for a less stressful prepping time before you host family & friends over the Holidays!
