DIY Essentials Basket For Your Holiday Guests
The holidays are such a busy time, especially for moms that are preparing their homes for kids on winter break and out-of-town guests. When we have family from out of state stay with us during the holidays, I always make sure to stock up on the essentials. I want my guests to feel at home and comfortable staying with us. In addition to having their own room and bathroom, I like creating an essentials gift basket for them that is full of products they need during the trip. I want to take advantage of the time that they are there and not have to worry about running out of toilet paper or having to run out to purchase tissues.
For the essentials gift basket, I made sure to grab my most favorite toiletry products for my beloved guests. To ensure that my guest preparation goes off without a hitch, I only trust Cottonelle, Kleenex, Scott and Viva products! Cottonelle, Kleenex, Scott and Viva have all the household needs covered this holiday season, you can conveniently find these brands at Walmart… your one-stop shop for all your holiday preparation and entertaining needs this year. Here is a list of products that are always a must have and were featured in the essentials basket:
- Viva® Big Roll Paper Towels
- Scott® 1100 Bathroom Tissue
- Cottonelle® Toilet Paper Double Rolls Clean Care)
- Kleenex® Holiday Ovals and Kleenex® Perfect Fit Holiday Canisters
You will also want to get some festive Christmas ribbon to add some special touches to the products you will include in the basket.
I tied the ribbon around both the toilet paper and paper towels, then added some holiday berries to the basket to give it a Christmas theme. These look so great on any holiday decor and are fairly inexpensive!
