21 home essentials to buy before guests come to visit


So you have agreed to host a few of your relatives or friends for the holidays this year. If you’re turning your home into a family Airbnb for Thanksgiving or Christmas, we’re here to help you prepare your space. Whether it’s your first time welcoming guests or you’re a professional just wanting some advice on new things to buy in the works, there are a few key things you should have in your bedroom.

The first thing you really need when expecting guests is a bed they can sleep in, of course. If your younger nieces and nephews are spending a few nights with you, you’ll want to make sure you have enough beds so they don’t end up arguing over who gets the “bigger lit. “The same goes for your adult guests – except maybe without the possibility of fights involved. But even if you don’t have a super fancy guest room with a California King, the air mattress, convertible bed, and designated pet travel cot we included in our roundup are great substitutes for short-term stays.

Along with a bed to sleep in, you’ll also want to make sure you have other essentials like linens, towels, pillows, and home air fresheners. We’ve included all of this and more in our list of items you should stock up on before your guests arrive. The best part? You can buy each product on Amazon so that it arrives before the holidays. Just be aware that we are not responsible if your guests enjoy staying with you so much that they never want to leave.
