Gift Idea For House Guests

With Easter just around the corner I know a lot of you will be welcoming guests into your home. Here is a cute and inexpensive way to let your guests know that you are delighted they are visiting. I think they will be very pleased to know that you took the time to make a special "welcome" gift just for them!
All you have to do is take a hand towel and fold it in half lengthwise. The next step is to "roll" the towel very loosely until you are at the end. You then safety pin it in place and take the underside of the towel and "scrunch" it up so that it forms a solid bottom. Add some shredded paper, a pretty bow, a handwritten welcome note, and tuck a few sweet little gifts inside! The best part about this gift is that you can easily purchase everything at your local dollar store. If you are going to be the one who is the house guest I think you could easily incorporate this idea using some other goodies and it would make a darling hostess gift!
A Few Other Ideas
Get well: tissues, aspirin, cough drops, can of chicken soup, etc..
Kitchen Towel: spices, recipe cards, small kitchen gadgets, egg timer, etc. I think this would make perfect bridal shower gift, don't you?
Spa: lotion, eye mask, nail file, pretty nail polish, etc..

What a great idea! And not expensive at all. I'll try it sometime and see what I come up with. I like the variety of occasions you can use this. And the fact you can shop at the Dollar Store! ~Adrienne~

You are very creative. Now, if only I could squeeze a guest into my guestroom. We bathe the dogs in the guestroom bathroom and the rest of it just seems to accumulate "stuff".

This is fabulous!!! We are blessed to be able to use a "guest house" near our home when we have guests. I love to stock the fridge with their favorite goodies and I will most definitely use this idea, too!! Thank you for sharing this!
