Welcome Baskets For Airbnb Guests

By The Makr Team

Looking to up your hosting game? Make your guests feel right at home with a thoughtful welcome basket left on a bed or nightstand. Pulled together with a few Makr touches, this project takes “hostess with the mostess” up a notch with little time and effort.


We gathered a couple essentials (think along the lines of an extra toothbrush and toothpaste for the I-can’t-believe-I-left-that-at-home visitors) and a few goodies (like smoked almonds for late-night snacking and a homemade brown sugar scrub courtesy of The Idea Room).


We made labels and a welcome note to finish the gift. If you are an established bed and breakfast with an existing logo this is a great way to extend your branding. If you are an Airbnb or HomeAway host choose colors that complement the room or consider adding icons like mountains, pine trees or palm trees that pick up on the natural surroundings.

And don’t forget to include your wifi account and password so your visitors can browse the Interwebs … or tweet and gram their fantastic stay!
