Tis the season for holiday gatherings. If you’re in charge of hosting Friendsgiving festivities this season, there’s a good chance you’ll have some guests asking to stay overnight. Before you get wrapped up with dinner prep, take a moment to make sure you have all your home guest essentials in check. From chic hand towels to a spare set of PJ’s, here’s how to get your place ready for guests this Friendsgiving.
Have a Comfy Blanket Ready
Whether you have a last-minute overnight guest or your friends just want to snuggle up on your sofa after dinner, make sure you have a soft blanket—like our lambswool throw—or two on hand so your loved ones can keep warm and comfortable.
Nothing sets the mood for a post-dinner hangout like burning a fragrant candle. Once your guests have left the table and moved to the living room, light a scented candle, so everyone can relax and unwind in an aromatic atmosphere.
Buy a New Guest Pillow
Even if they’re crashing on the couch, your overnight guests will need a plush pillow to rest on. Our Mid-Plush Down Pillow is soft but supportive at the same time—so your friend will wake up without a neck ache (but no promises on a hangover).
Buy Sleek Hand Towels
No Friendsgiving celebration would be complete without a good set of hand towels waiting for your guests in the bathroom. Pick out a couple of pairs of stylish hand towels, like our Melange Color-block Hand Towels, to impress your guests when they’re washing their hands before dinner.
Have a Spare Set of PJ’s Handy
In the event of an unexpected overnight crasher, you’ll want to ensure you have an extra pair or two of PJ’s ready. Designed with an elastic waistband, our Bed-Stuy and Bushwick Pants are as comfortable as they are versatile, while our York Tee is soft enough for anyone to fall asleep in.
Hosting a holiday gathering almost always ends with an unexpected overnight guest (or two). Before you open your home to your loved ones this Friendsgiving, take the time to make sure you’ve stocked up on guest essentials so that your festivities will proceed like a dream.
