    30 Things From Wayfair That’ll Spruce Up Your Guest Room This Holiday Season

    All I ask is that you don't blame me when your guests refuse to leave. 🙏

    1. A pair of down-alternative pillows because the pillows in your guest room right now are...let's just say, a little flat.

    2. And while we're at it, a down-alternative mattress topper in case the guest bed is your old mattress that literally gave you back problems. We love our guests, but we're not gonna buy a whole new mattress (c'mon) — this topper is comfy enough to make them think we did.

    3. An adorable Christmas tree night-light because it'll add a little bit of festive cheer and ensure your guests aren't stumbling over furniture in the dark.

    4. A convertible sleeper chair in case your "guest room" is really just a corner of your small apartment. It'll serve as an accent chair for you and a personal bed for your guest!

    5. A Keurig mini that'll win you the title of "host with the most" when you're guests see it sitting on the table of the guest room with a mug and some K-Cups. Like, what are you, a 5-star hotel?! Bravo.

    6. And a customizable mug to go with your guest room coffee station. How cute would this be sitting next to the Keurig? You really are the host with the most — and your guest even has their own personalized souvenir to take home with them, commemorating their amazing stay at Hotel You.

    7. An essential oil diffuser in case your cat claims the guest room the 360 days of the year it's not in use. Don't worry — upon arrival into their ~suite,~ your guest will be welcomed with the relaxing scent of lavender instead of dander.

    8. A dresser with fabric drawers because it won't take up much space, yet still provides plenty of storage for the guest who tends to overpack.

    9. A heated throw blanket if your guest room happens to be on the draftier side of the house...aand that's precisely why it's the guest room.

    10. A pair of Hanukkah slippers so your guest doesn't feel weird about roaming around your house barefoot. It's a nice lil' gift, and it'll also spare them the awkwardness of staying in someone else's home and trying to figure out the shoe policy without outright asking — the slippers speak for themselves.

    11. A shag area rug because a recurring theme is the overall neglect of the guest room. Do we really have to replace the carpet in there just because it's stained? No, we don't...but we do panic when we ignore the problem all year, and now our family will be staying over for a month. Enter the area rug — a Band-Aid for a dingy carpet or worn-out floor.

    12. A wireless stick-on reading light in case your guest is a known bookworm. Bonus: The lamp can be removed and act as a flashlight to guide your guest to the bathroom at night. Remember, they don't have the same muscle memory that allows you to seamlessly navigate through your hallway in the dark.

    13. A luxuriously cozy down comforter that'll make your guest feel like they're staying at the Ritz. This is exactly what I was talking about when I said pls don't blame me if they never want to leave. Leaving this here as evidence of my official disclaimer.

    14. A roll of peel-and-stick wallpaper that's a much easier upgrade than repainting. It's just enough to spruce up the entire room and cover up the walls that haven't been painted in well...ever.

    15. A clothing rack so your guests can organize their outfits for the festivities ahead and hang up the articles of clothing that absolutely cannot remain folded in their suitcase a minute longer.

    16. A reusable Advent calendar you can fill with little treats for your guests because the holiday season brings out the kid in everybody, and even your most ~mature~ guests won't be able to do anything but smile when they see it.

    17. A bedside water carafe that'll have your guests absolutely floored by your keen attention to detail. I mean, they have their own water pitcher with a matching little glass, conveniently placed at their bedside all because their generous host thinks of just about *everything and anything* they could possibly need. Wow.

    18. A compact nightstand so your guest feels right at home in their guest room. After all, I'm pretty sure it's impossible to fall asleep without all your bedtime essentials within immediate reach.

    19. A Christmas plant because it's a nice decorative touch that'll add a bit of holiday cheer and most likely make your guest say, "Awww."

    20. A pair of room-darkening curtains so your guests can sleep in as long as they want. Now that's what I call a true vacation.

    21. A decorative pillow for the guest bed to make it a bit more ~homey~ and a lot more festive.

    22. Speaking of festive, a string of fairy lights because lighting has the ability to completely transform a room. If there's ever a time to add a little extra twinkle into your home, it's definitely this time of year.

    23. A tufted futon sleeper sofa in case you're hosting more guests than anticipated and you don't have another bed to spare (or if your guest room is also your WFH office). A compact seating option by day and a comfy bed by night — problem solved. It even has two outlets and two USB ports so your guest's devices can always stay charged.

    24. A woven floor basket that you can fill with extra blankets and pillows or all the miscellaneous items you've been storing in your guest room and now don't know what to do with.

    25. A wreath to hang outside the guest room as a little preview of the comfy, cozy, cheerful wonders that lie behind the door.

    26. A balsam-scented candle that'll add even more to the holiday ambiance you've so brilliantly curated. With this kind of attention to detail, your guests have no choice but to be impressed.

    27. A tufted headboard if your guest bed is really just a guest bed frame and your guest room currently feels like a dorm. This'll change that. Instantly.

    28. A plaid comforter and sham set because it's festive yet understated and will work in the room all winter long.

    29. A simple vanity so your guest can get ready for the holiday celebrations without hogging your makeup mirror. This is a time of joy, and the quickest way to a riff between you and your guests is by interrupting each other's precious "getting ready in front of the mirror" time.

    30. A soft and thick microfiber throw for an extra layer of coziness. After this, I don't think your guest room could get any cozier.
