Fab printables but they don’t seem to work for the whole package :( I almost cried! xx
Hi Samantha! What doesn’t work? Is there a problem with the download or did they not fit the objects you had in mind? Let me know and I would love to help you out! Don’t cry! :)
Beautiful idea, now I just need to have guests stay over.

I just updated the link, I’m not sure what the problem was but hopefully it is all working now! Let me know!
I’ve done this in the past and it always seems to be greatly appreciated! I always throw in a pair of fuzzy socks too ;) beautiful job!
The link to download the PDF doesn’t work. I even signed up for the ad and still the PDF link doesn’t work.
Nevermind – it was sent to my email. I was waiting for a link to pop up and directly download it to my computer.Thank you!
Nevermind again, I was wrong. I still was not able to download the PDF.
Hi Jennifer, sorry you couldn’t get the link to work. I went ahead and just deleted the file and link and uploaded everything again. Starting fresh. I’ll send you an email too with the actual PDF file so you don’t have to worry about trying to download it again. Sorry!
OMG Brie you are absolutly talent and thank you for sharing all your talents, my son is bringing 5 friends from medical school and I’m so excited and ready to make the baskets. From all the blogs and ideas I look your were the best.
Oh thank you so much! It sounds like your house is about to get a little bit crazy with 5 extra guests so if these baskets help you out at all than I am glad I can help! Enjoy your company and thank you again for your sweet words!
As I mentioned on Friday we had Sam’s sister in town and she stayed with us for a week and a half. A while ago I saw a similar idea on another blog (I looked everywhere and couldn’t find it again!) but I thought it might be fun to put together a Welcome Guest basket to have waiting for her when she arrived. It was pretty easy and I think it added a little extra touch to make her feel welcome. I think this is a great idea for any guest room and something I plan on doing for all the guests that come to visit.
Have you ever been a guest at someone’s house and woken up in the middle of the night thirsty or hungry? And you don’t feel quite comfortable sneaking through the house in the dark to find the kitchen? Or maybe you’ve forgotten a toiletry item or don’t know where the linen closet is? Those aren’t major problems but already taking care of them for your guest will make sure they really do feel at home.
Inside this basket I put some water bottles, snacks and granola bars, a towel and washcloth, soap, shampoo, conditioner, hairspray, floss, toothpaste, lotion and some headache medicine. Batteries, a nice book, or CD of relaxing music would also be good things to include. By picking these items up in the travel section of the drugstore you can save money and not worry about storing lots of big items.
Wrapping the items and adding little tags and ribbon adds an extra special touch and takes just a couple of minutes, especially when all you have to do is print and cut out some printables already made for you. :)
And how about this? I just happen to have some printables that you can download. What are the odds? Download the PDF for the Welcome Guest Packet
Our guest room is currently vacated…any takers?
