A continuing compendium of tips and tricks from Home & Garden Television:
1. Create an environment that promotes a great night's sleep. Make the bed super-comfy by adding a thick duvet and lots of fluffy pillows. High-thread-count, 100 percent cotton sheets are also a must.
2. Stock the guest room with magazines and books and put together a snack tray or basket filled with light snacks and bottled water.
3. Lay out his-and-hers bathrobes and place rolled bath towels at the foot of the bed in case guests would like to freshen up upon arrival.
