Treats for Visitors

23 Aug

 

I so love putting together little welcome gifts for guests when they come to visit.  Mainly because it involves two of my favorite things- buying gifts and having visitors.  This weekend our lovely friends Tim and Laurie came to visit and I put together a bunch of purple themed gifts to matched the sheets they’d be using over the weekend.

Have visitors coming to stay?  Consider putting together a little welcome gift including some of the following: card, snacks, wine/spirits, Gatorade (in case of overindulgence in said wine/spirits), tea, toiletries or other travel-type gifts, little knick knacks from your favorite local shops and perhaps a map of/brochures from your town if guests will be spending time alone.  Any other ideas?

    I have two large baskets that I put the towels, bottles of water, special soaps and lotions, (and mints on their pillow). I want guests to have the B&B experience when they come to our house. Once we had a bride and groom stay with us before their wedding and before they moved to Colorado. I made a special do not disturb sign for their door, added a mini big chicken for Marietta http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Chicken, and a monotogrammed soap dish with two soaps for them to take to CO. My husband also make special breakfasts for guests (along with all the other wonderful dishes he prepares) and we have bicycles for them to borrow to roam around the square if they like 🙂 i love your ideas with the color theme and the snacks!
