Items for Summer Guests:

What You Overlooked

Summer is all about weekend getaways and road trips to see family, but when your home is someone else's destination, you'll need to be prepared. Here are items for your summer guests you may have overlooked.


Not everyone has the same sleep schedule, so make sure your guests have what they need to help them adjust to an unfamiliar room: extra blankets, alarm clocks, night lights, fans, and a hamper. You don't have to go all out, but making sure your guest can adapt to temperatures and environment goes a long way toward making their stay comfortable.

Down Time

Make sure there are books and magazines around and places to lounge inside and outside your house. Something to read and places to read give guests the option of spending time outside the guestroom when activities for the day have reached a lull.

Snack Time

Provide a variety of snack foods including snacks for dietary restrictions (vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free). Stock the refrigerator with beverages, ready-to-eat foods, fruit, bread, cheese, and the proper plates and drinkware. It doesn't have to be stocked like a country kitchen, but make sure there's enough in your home so your guests don't feel like they have to go out to get something to eat when it's not a mealtime.

Outdoor Time

Plan plenty of activities outdoors and provide information on a variety of similar activities in your area. Give your guests the opportunity to see your community while doing the things that make summer fun anywhere. Make sure they have pool and park access and know where they can run or ride bicycles in your neighborhood.

Shower Time

Keep a pair of slippers for any overnight guests. It's easy to underestimate how unfamiliar a floor feels until we set a bare foot on it. Your guests may not be offended by your floor, but slippers won't be turned away if they're offered.
