As a seasoned traveller to family members homes I’ve learnt how to slot into my new temporary home with ease and little fuss. Packing the essentials often means I leave some of my creature comforts at home. Here are my top tips to creating that home away from home.

As a seasoned traveller to family members homes I’ve learnt how to slot into my new temporary home with ease and little fuss. Packing the essentials often means I leave some of my creature comforts at home. With school holidays and the Easter Long Weekend just around the corner, here are my top tips to creating that home away from home for your guests at any time of the year.

Provide toiletries that your guests won’t necessarily travel with or are easily forgotten such as a wash pouf, toothbrush or hair ties.

Provide a pair of slippers and if you really want to go all out a bath robe. Decadence!

A pillow spray is a lovely touch and gives a sense of comfort and ease. I like to change mine up depending on the seasons.

Always have a reading light available that’s not the overhead light. There’s nothing worse then waking up in the middle of the night in a room you’re not familiar with and fumbling for the light!

A good selection of reading materials of novels and magazines provides that extra touch to help your guests relax and feel right at home.

Bonus Tip: make sure your guests know where the coffee and tea making facilities are, they’ll appreciate it in the morning!
