Of course I had to design a little tag to go on my basket, so if I was going to that much trouble of course I was going to make it available for you to download for free, too. (link at bottom of post)
The room that is now our guest room was recently our nursery so I had several of these baskets from Pottery Barn Kids lying empty in the shelves of the changing table (which is now the TV/media stand). I gathered some supplies that I had in the upstairs bathroom and linen closet and completed my basket with a quick trip to Target.
You’ve got your basics of toothbrushes, mouth wash, cotton pads, q-tips, tums, bars of soap, disposable razors, lotion, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, brush, comb, spray deodorant for both men and women, and a compact hair dryer that I picked up for under $15.
I also used one of the tags to pretty up the towels and washcloth that I left on the bed. Once I get all the towels washed there will be a his and hers set (with coordinating washcloths and tags).
I think the tag adds a little bit of letting your guest know these items are there for their use without having to say anything, plus it’s just cute and it will have you singing the song for the next hour.
I’ll probably add some bottles of water and a little treat before arrival as well.
