5 Welcoming Ideas for Visitors Using Your Guest Bedroom

Do you want to welcome your guests with special treatment?  It is really easy with some of the ideas in this post. 

Summer is a busy travel time where we all have visitors. But that's not saying holidays aren't also a busy time with guests enjoying your company. So let's get ready and be ahead of the holiday rush. 

A nice welcoming message and other simple things make the room feel comfortable and help vanquish that "away from home feeling." You can share what you'd find in a bed and breakfast or Airbnb like maps, local attraction brochures and other helpful reading tidbits. 

Along with that simple room addition, I've seen a number of ideas and thought of a few more so let me share them with you. 

Simple Flower Vase

No matter who visits, a flower or a flower and greenery in a bud vase would be a nice touch of color unless you know the visitor has allergies. In that case find a nice artificial substitute. 

Favorite Snack

It will be a nice welcome to have the guest room set up when your visitors move their bags in. If you know of a favorite sweet treat, tea leaf blend, or other comforting idea leave that on the pillow(s) even if arrival is early in the day. You can even have your very own personalized favor bags for the treats. A great idea for a bed and breakfast or Airbnb.

If you have a tray or small cooler place a water bottle, favorite beverage, or maybe your specialty homemade beverage for each visitor. Consider having a reusable water bottle with a local tourist attraction or a custom bottle with a fictional name for your guest bedroom. This custom flask filled with a special delight is a nice idea that you can even offer as a gift for your visitors. 

Electronics Charging Station

You know after a long travel day or sightseeing we are not only looking to recharge ourselves but also our electronics. Wouldn't it be nice to have a charging station set up for your guests. How about something welcoming like these personalized chargers? This customized ChargeHub™ device offers a 7-port USB accommodation. It's simple to personalize for your special room. I've made this charger design in three colors

Internet Wifi Details

Now that your guests are all settled into their guest room you know they are going to be checking those electronic devices. Rather than continually providing the internet information have a nice art or photo display on the wall, desktop or on the nightstand with all the details they'll need. 

If you change your internet or wifi information often, leave the password and internet name off when personalizing the artwork. When you frame the artwork, you can write the information on the glass in marker. When it's time to change the information simply wipe with rubbing alcohol or hand disinfectant if you used permanent marker. Easy!

Do you have a room ready for you overnight visitors? I'd love to read any of your ideas so leave a comment. 


  1. Hi Patricia,
    I really love having the WiFi details available in printed format. It's always a mad scramble trying to figure out what it is since we don't have to re-enter it every time. So we often forget what it is ourselves!
    Great ideas for making people feel at home.

  2. Hi Carol,
    Thanks for stopping by to check out the latest post. Most folks have all their tech items published so the internet wifi name and password aren't readily available. That's one reason I love this idea.


Comments from visitors put perspective on my work. Let me know your thoughts about the post. Thanks.
