DIY Overnight Guest Welcome Basket

The holidays oftentimes brings loved ones to your home.  I thought it would be so fun to make them feel welcome with a little overnight guest welcome basket!  It helps make them feel a little more comfortable and relaxed.  Whenever we entertain guests I want to make sure my home is the best it can be for them.  I purchase all my must-have products at Costco.  Frankly, I pretty much purchase everything at Costco.  

I can honestly say Costco is one of the best companies to work for.  Years ago, I was a Costco employee for five years.  I worked the 4 a.m. merchandising/stocking shift all the way to front-end supervisor.  They take great care of both their employees and members.  Costco is still my number one store when it comes to feeding, cleaning, or decorating my household.  It’s my one-stop-shop during the holidays and year-round.  

The best way to erase crayon

Before my guests arrive, I have to get my home in a presentable shape.  All of the P&G Household products I need can be found at Costco.  Being a mom of a toddler entails finding and erasing all the crayon marks in my home.  It’s amazing what Paxton considers to be the perfect canvas.  I have no idea what people did before Mr. Clean Magic Erasers were invented.  I haven’t found anything as effective as these babies.  I use the Extra Power variety for all of the crayon and permanent marker scribbles in my home.  Yes, I said permanent marker.  

sweet smelling home with febreze

I always spray my home with Febreze Air Effects.  I always look forward to the holiday collections release.  They are all so amazing!  The very first impression when people walk through the door is how delicious my home smells.

When washing my guest’s towels and sheets I always use Downy Unstoppables.  Actually, I use it for pretty much all my laundry.  It makes everything smell so fresh and inviting.

Costco has the best items for a welcoming home

After I’m done making my home look and smell the best it can using P&G Household products, I assemble my guest welcome basket.

I think having a little sign welcoming guests to our home with the wifi password is so adorable.  It adds a special touch.  In this basket I loaded it with water bottles, fresh washcloths, the Kirkland Signature Fruit and Nut Mix, and a bottle of Febreze Air Effects in case they want to freshen up their room and bathroom during their stay.

Other great items to put in the basket are:

  • Snacks
  • Coffee
  • Books
  • Magazines
  • Info about local attractions
  • Shampoo and conditioner
  • Lotion
  • Toothbrush and toothpaste
  • Fresh Flowers

I loved that I was able to save time by purchasing all my items at Costco.  I even purchased the snack container there!

buy everything you need at Costco

I could quickly grab what I needed because they were easily found in the household/cleaning aisle in the back of the warehouse.  I never have to worry about running out of anything since I buy in bulk.  When I worked for Costco some friends would ask me if a membership was worth it.  I give the same answer I always have – yes!  I don’t know what I would do if I had to live somewhere without a Costco.  

What are your favorite things to purchase at Costco?!

The Perfect Treat For Loved Ones

the perfect treat for loved ones

Holiday Season has officially kicked off.  I love everything about this time of year.  More than anything I love how everything starts to focus on the importance of family.  I really enjoy having family and friends in town – especially during the holidays.   When we have loved ones staying with us we want to make every day special.  The best way to start the day is to pop Pillsbury™ Grands! Cinnamon Rolls in the oven.

There is something so intoxicating about the smell.  It will wake up the most stubborn of sleepers (cough cough Damian) and bring them into the kitchen like a mouthwatering siren song.  I can pretty much guarantee that everyone in your house will be in a good mood.  They might still be in zombie mode, but happy zombie mode.  How can you not be with the sweet scent of cinnamon and sugar?  

pillsbury grands cinnamon rolls are perfect for holiday breakfasts

Our days can be busy with sightseeing, shopping, and shuttling to school, and we can forget about fitting in time for cooking.  Thankfully, Pillsbury™ Grands! Cinnamon Rolls are simple indulgences we always have time for.  Within a matter of minutes the ultimate breakfast indulgence is ready to be devoured.

My coconuts love eating Pillsbury™ Grands! Cinnamon Rolls any way they can.  There are many ways you can personalize them but I like to keep it simple.  To make family breakfasts extra special I pop them in my waffle maker.  They cook quickly and easily, and are super delicious.  I love the slightly crispy edges when prepared this way.  It’s the easiest cinnamon bun waffle ever!  Not to mention it is a total mom-win in my household.
