Over the next few months you’re likely to host friends and family for a number of different occasions. We definitely love opening our door to guests though the germs that sneak in with them aren’t quite as welcome.
An easy way to help your guests avoid passing germs around while still getting to enjoy each other’s company, is to create an easy Holiday Guest Station in your home. I keep ours loaded up with anything that drop-in guests could possibly need or want while they’re visiting. It’s in addition to the House Guest Welcome Baskets that I make up for any guests staying overnight at our home.
I like to tuck a wellness or care basket into my guest station. There are a number of different things you could include, but mine always has:
- anti-bacterial gel
- cough drops
- Kleenex tissues
- mini packs of meds (aspirin, ibuprofen, etc.)
- hard candies
The other day my husband’s Aunt Pat stopped in and asked for a tissue. I realized that we had just used the last one like an hour before. So I made sure to stock up on Kleenex on my last trip to Sam’s Club so that wouldn’t happen again.
Sam’s Club has a few different bundle packs of Kleenex available, all of which are perfect for the holidays. I bought both a multi-pack of Kleenex® Anti-Viral as well as the Kleenex® Ultra soft. Both are 3-ply tissues and the Anti-Viral ones also kill 99.9% of cold and flu viruses, great for all the winter sniffles.
