Disclosure: this is a sponsored post. All thoughts, opinions and good smelling bath stuff are purely my own. When I bought my first house, I was ecstatic. I was even more elated when I had my first round of guests come through.
One of the things that I really liked about my little doll house was that the guest bathroom had a lot of counter space. I used that space creatively to welcome my guest. Rolled up, color coordinated towels were always the rage.
I also decided I wanted my guests to feel pampered so I would create these guest baskets. There, they would find soaps, body wash, lotions, loofahs, you name it. This was a hit! Everyone said they felt like they were at a hotel. Of course, they were able to take all these goodies home with them at the end of their stay.
This past holiday season, I created several baskets of treats for my family. The first basket was my sock basket. When you come to my house, you will be greeted by an array of soft socks that you can change into as I like shoes to be left at the front.
With my sister staying with me for well over a week, I wanted to make sure that she and her partner felt welcome. So they got a special treat. A caring basket featuring Caress. Y’all, can I just tell you that I have found my favorite bath bar in the world! This bar had my entire bathroom smelling of flowery scents that took me back to some island paradise. My sister loved it and I happily stocked up on it after a quick shopping trip to Sam’s.
Loofahs, face scrubbies and body washes could be found in my little welcome tin. I usually put some washcloths on the bottom to make my tin look nice and pretty.
At the end of her stay, my guests get to pack up all the good smelling yummies. I like to think that when they get home and use the products, they get to think about me and their stay at Chateu Mami.
Oh and if you don’t have guests, this makes a great little gift basket as well. Wrap it in some cellophane and voila! I’ve been known to bring this little gift when I’m staying at someone’s house. It can sometimes take the pressure off from a host.
Do you create easy to gift baskets for loved ones? Seriously, you guys need to try this bath bar. It I everrathang! You will not be disappointed.
Trust me, I’m a Mami.
