Whether you host guests often or you’re just having your friends and family over for the upcoming holiday season, it’s time to start thinking about how you can make your house a home. There are so many different ways you can do this–from adding incredibly cozy bedding to the guest room to welcoming them to your home with a freshly made charcuterie board. Whatever it may be, Amazon is helping you be the host of the century. Before the craziness begins, it’s time to get prepared. This means buying everything beforehand so you can enjoy yourself (mostly) stress-free by the time they arrive. So if you want to make the most of your home this season, but you’re not sure where to start, keep scrolling. I’ve rounded up 22 items that you can get on Amazon that you need for your home before guests arrive.
Add Some Color To Your Guest Room With This Comforter Set
Choosing the right bedding can feel like an impossible feat. There are so many options out there, how do you even begin to choose? If you’re not afraid of patterns and bright colors, this comforter set may be just up your alley. It comes in two different colors and patterns and is an easy way to dress up your guest room when you’re feeling bold.
Keep The Air Clean Of Allergens With This Air Purifier
With cold and flu season just around the corner, on top of allergies, it’s important to keep your immune systems up and your home as clean as possible. This air purifier makes that easier than ever. It cleans your air from 99.97% of dust, pollen, pet dander, smoke, and odors, making it easier to breathe and stay healthy.
Dress Up Your Bathroom With This Bath Mat
If you’ve ever shopped at Urban Outfitters or looked at their website, you may have seen bath mats just like this one before. The only downside is that they come with a pretty high price tag. Luckily, Amazon has you covered. This one is wildly affordable and your guests will get a kick out of it every time they hop out of the shower.
Maximize Your Space With This Air Mattress
Let’s face it, having guests over can be quite the headache–especially if you are short on space. To make the most room for all of the upcoming visits, use this air mattress. It gives your family and friends a place to sleep without taking up too much room. It’s also almost as comfortable as a real mattress. That’s why it has over 30,000 raving reviews.
These Throw Pillows Look Far More Expensive Than They Are
If there’s one thing that I’ve discovered is wildly expensive now that I am an adult, it’s throw pillows. Why should something so simple cost so much? That’s why I knew I had to find a solution. It should come as no surprise that Amazon ended up being the jackpot. These pillows in particular are crazy affordable yet look very expensive. Not to mention that they come in a wide range of colors.
Every Host Needs This Charcuterie Board Set
As someone who loves hosting, one of the first things that I do when someone comes over is put together a charcuterie board. Who doesn’t love meats, cheeses, and wine? If you’re entertaining this holiday season and you want to take your charcuterie to the next level, opt for this charcuterie set. The large wooden board comes with specialty cheese knives, labeling slates, a wine opener, and a carrying bag.
Set The Mood With These Flameless Candles
There’s nothing I love more than lighting candles to set the ambiance. But they can get expensive if you burn them a lot. That’s why these flameless candles are so nifty. The amber LED lights emit a soft, warm glow, perfect for making your house feel cozy. It also comes with a remote control that helps you control them as needed.
This Duvet Is Crazy Comfortable And Warm
Bedding shouldn’t cost you an arm and a leg. But luckily, you can find gems like this duvet that are both high-quality and budget-friendly. When you need some extra warmth, throw it on the bed, and you will immediately warm up. It’s also super easy to clean, comfy to the touch, and easy to store when you don’t need it (trust me, I’m speaking from firsthand experience).
These Turkish Hand Towels Are A Best Seller
I first received this Turkish towel as a gift, and now I can’t seem to stop recommending it to quite literally everyone that I come across. While it may just seem like a beautiful-looking towel, it’s actually quite practical. It is super soft and absorbent. The fact that it looks gorgeous in your home is just an added bonus.
These Soap Dispensers Are An Easy Yet Luxurious Swap
This may seem like such a silly small swap, but these soap dispensers can make a world of a difference in your home decor. Use them for shampoo, conditioner, soap, or lotion, and your guests will feel as if they’re staying at a hotel rather than your home.
Treat Your Guests To This Robe
Wearing a robe is by far one of life’s most beautiful simple pleasures. And now you can make it a reality for you and your guests with this one from Amazon. The waffle is the epitome of comfortable and throwing one on while you enjoy your morning cup of coffee will dramatically improve your day.
Wake Up To A Hot Cup Of Joe With This Pour Over Maker
Speaking of a hot cup of coffee, you can save yourself (and your guests) so much money by making your own at home. While it may not be as fun as getting some at Starbucks, your wallet will thank you. Plus, who says coffee at home has to be worse than some from a coffee shop?! This pour over maker helps you make the perfect cup every single time. And it doesn’t require much effort either.
Cozy Up Under This Super Trendy Blanket
Checkerboard print like this has become insanely popular over the last couple of years. And I, for one, am not mad about it. If you love the trend as much as I do and you want some more throw blankets (you can never have too many, after all), get this one. It has a perfect 5-star rating, costs less than $50, and is super cute.
This Towel Warmer Will Have You Feeling Like You’re At The Spa
If you love going above and beyond for your guests, this towel warmer is going to warm its way into your heart. It accommodates up to two 40″ X 70″ oversized bath towels, bathrobes, blankets, PJs, and more. And it only takes six minutes to warm up, so your things will be toasty in the blink of an eye.
These Incense Cones Make Your House Smell Like The Great Outdoors
If there’s one thing you can do to impress your loved ones, it’s to keep your house smelling like a home. And with these incense cones, you can have a home that smells like the great outdoors. With scents like cedar, fir balsam, juniper, and piñon, lighting these will keep your space smelling like nature in the best way possible.
This Serving Tray Is Super Versatile
A serving tray is a small home decor piece yet it’s about as versatile as they come. Use it to treat your guests to breakfast in bed or place it around your home to help you organize your belongings. It can be used for coffee, makeup, toiletries, magazines, you name it.
Who Needs A Hotel When You Can Use This Luggage Rack
I was never one to use a luggage rack when I traveled. But now that I’ve hit my older 20s, I see just how practical it is–especially if you’re not in the mood to unpack (which I never am). To treat your guests to the same luxury in your own home, throw one of these in the guest rooms. They will greatly appreciate it.
These Towels Have Earned Over 45,000 Reviews
Costing less than $7 a towel, these towels have earned their place as an Amazon Best Seller for a reason. Aside from the killer price tag, they are made from cotton grown in the Aegean Region, a region known for its soft, luxurious cotton. They are soft, fluffy, and absolutely heavenly to the touch.
Kiss Cold Coffee Goodbye With This Mug Warmer
Is there anything worse than cold coffee? If you don’t drink it quickly enough, you’ll find yourself with a colder cup quicker than you probably want. But that doesn’t mean you should have to microwave it. Not when this mug warmer exists. It allows you to maintain your coffee or tea’s temperature, so you can keep it hot for as long as you need.
You’re Never Going To Want To Stop Burning This Candle
If there is one thing that you buy on this list, make it this candle. It’s by far one of my favorite candles to ever exist. That’s why I’ve ordered at least 10 by now. I burn through them so quickly. It’s the perfect mix of sweet and musky, ideal for anyone who doesn’t like overpowering scents.
Make Home Cooked Meals With This Dutch Oven
Cooking delicious homemade meals shouldn’t be a long, hard process. If you want to cut corners and make food that your guests will rant and rave about for years to come, use this dutch oven to your advantage. With it, you can make roasts, pasta, soups, stews, and more.
Get A Little Extra Warmth With This Tabletop Fire Pit
Candles are great and all, but if you want to take it to the next level and make your loved ones feel as cozy as possible, try this tabletop fire pit instead. Use it to make s’mores or just keep it on your outdoor dining set to help add a little warmth when you’re enjoying dinner al fresco.
