A while back we decided to create a guest toiletry basket in all of our vacation rentals. It was important for us to make this an intentional and organized amenity for our guests so that they would know these items are there for their use and we thought about what they might need during their stay. It’s been very well received and even gets mentioned in reviews from time to time.
1. Shampoo + Conditioner
Try to find options that will appeal to most of your guests – avoid overly specialized or scented products. We use large pump bottles, but you could also try travel travel-size or permanent refillable dispensers.
2. Body + Face Soap
Consider multiple options for different needs. We provide a liquid body wash in the shower, individually packaged scented soap and individually packaged unscented soap.
3. Tooth Brush + Paste
Look for bulk supply of individually packaged toothbrushes and travel size tooth paste.
4. Cotton Swabs
Display cotton swabs and/or q-tips in small, decorative containers or jars.
Choose individually packaged razors so guests can tell that the razor has not yet been used.
6. Feminine Products
Providing a few options for female guests is a great idea. Just select individually packaged products.
Choose individual samples or a multi-use bottle and select an SPF that would appeal to most guests.
8. Insect Repellent
Choose individual samples or a multi-use bottles. We prefer DEET-free.
9. Make-up Remover
Consider individually packaged make-up remover wipes or a multi-use bottle. Believe us, your towels will thank you!
10. Hand Sanitizer
Consider travel size or a larger multi-use bottles. Branding travel size bottles with your vacation rental name or website might be a great gift for your guests!
