DIY Be Our Guest Gift Basket
Both mine and my husbands families live out of town so during the holiday season we get a lot of visitors. With the holidays around the corner I wanted to put together a gift basket that my guest could enjoy and make them feel welcomed. Luckily Big Lots has everything that I need to prepare for them.
I started with something cozy and clean. When I saw this faux fur blanket at Big Lots it had my name all over it. It might be a little more for me then my guest 😉 Since my guest usually stay several days I like to keep some laundry detergent for them to use if needed. Since Big Lots has a variety of items from home decode to food I was able to buy everything I needed for my basket there!
Next a few toiletries. My mom will fly in from time to time so keeping these items on hand will save her a lot of time with her carry on bag! I love to keep shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and my favorite dry shampoo.
Next I add snacks! If your guest are up late or wake up early they may get hungry! Plus having chocolates in your room is pretty much an necessity.
I also found an adorable mug at Big Lots and tossed in some hot chocolate, oatmeal, and popcorn. Shopping for this basket was so much fun. My experience at Big Lots was wonderful and really enjoyed the friendly staff. I walked into their home decor and seasonal decor and was so impressed. I have a good 20 pictures on my phone of items I will be going back to get! Rustic signs, metal, wood, all the “fixer upper” style things that I want in my house.
Last for the gift basket I through in their own body loofah. Your guest will love it! While shopping I was sending my sister pictures of the cute stuff I kept finding and she already ask me to go back for another owl mug for her for Christmas!
I also wanted to show you what are some must have items for your guest bathroom. Soap of course is a must and instead of having to refill all the time found a storage solution that works as decor also! I unwrap and place soap bars in this tall glass jar. It looks pretty and is practical.
For under the sink I keep cleaning supplies and paper towels. This way I can give everything a quick wipe down before my guest arrive and they are able to clean up as needed.
Make sure to stop by Big Lots and get everything you need for your guest. It’s the one stop shop from small to large scale items. I may have gotten one to many things for myself. Their home decor is is defiantly whats on trend right now.
