5 Ways To Make Guests Feel At Home

Friday, July 7, 2017

Whether you live close to a resort town or not, you are likely to have house guests at some point. Because we live at the Jersey Shore, our home is a popular weekend destination for friends and family. Whenever we have out-of-town guests, it is our number one goal to make them feel at home. Our home is their home, no matter who they are and how long they are staying.

Here are the 5 ways I make guests feel at home when they are visiting.
1. Do some prep work
Call or send your guests an email asking what they prefer to have during their stay. It can be anything from a favorite snack to a favorite beverage to a favorite magazine for nighttime reading. Whatever it is, it will go a long way to making your guests feel welcomed in your home.

Summers are hectic and busy. Rather than spend time shopping, I tried Jet.com for the very first time last week. I wanted to order a few summer essentials for guests that we are expecting as well as for ourselves. I placed my order late on a Wednesday evening, and by Friday my package had arrived. Now that's service!

2. Serve them a favorite breakfast
Just as they would make their favorite meals at home, do the same for your guests while they are staying with you. Whether it's something as elaborate as bacon and eggs or something as simple as muffins, your guests will love the personal touch.

I ordered a boxed muffin mix from Jet.com to whip up when we have guests. Not only are they good for breakfast, but they also make a great snack for munching on all day long.

3. Stock the kitchen and bathroom with their favorites
This is one of the little things that goes a long way. When I don't have to pack my favorite toiletries, it's a huge help. It frees up luggage space to pack a few more essentials (like shoes!), and I look forward to arriving and having all my favorite products at my disposal.

Jet.com has a full selection of health and beauty products so your guests won't have to lug their own with them. Ask them up front what products they prefer to have, and stock their bathroom accordingly. It will leave a lasting impression.

4. Cook them an unforgettable meal
The way to your guests hearts is through their stomachs, right? There's no better way to reconnect with your guests than over a meal. And if you prepare it together, even better. While I was browsing the many categories at Jet.com, I noticed a category for Books, Music & Movies. I clicked it and was thrilled to see that Jet has Small Victories, a cookbook that I've been wanting to purchase for a few months.

5. Send them off with an invitation to come again
Nothing says we had a great time like inviting your guests to come again. Extend an invitation to visit again and be sure to follow up. Order all your entertaining needs from Jet.com.
