We've probably all had the experience of staying overnight at the home of a friend or extended family member, and feeling a little awkward about asking for something.
Maybe it's wanting another blanket or a snack, but not wanting to intrude too much on your hosts.
When hosting friends or family overnight at your home, remember how it felt to be a guest in someone else's home, and, with little extra effort, make your guests feel special.
Here are some suggestions:
o Who hasn't forgotten a toothbrush or other toiletry item when traveling? Have extra toiletry items on hand so you don't have to take time out for a trip to the drugstore. This might include toothbrushes, razors, dental floss and feminine hygiene items.
o When you're staying at hotels, bring home the miniature shampoo, conditioner and lotion containers. Display them in a container in the guest bathroom to give your visitors some options.
