Welcome Gifts for Your Vacation Rental

As a homeowner for a vacation rental,  you want your guests to feel at home the moment they step foot into your property. An easy self check-in, charming feel with well-prepared spaces with a guestbook to welcome your guests are essentials. To go above and beyond for your visitors and provide them with an upscale stay you could invest in welcome gifts. One of the easiest ways to impress your guests and make them smile is surprising them with a welcome gift. 

Personalized Note

The easiest welcome gift and possibly the item that your guests will appreciate the most is a personalized welcome note. Everyone likes to feel appreciated, while guests know they’re not the only ones to enjoy your home it’s nice to feel personally greeted. This ties in perfectly with your guestbook. 

Local Flavor

Leaving a welcome basket or platter of fresh local foods can make guests feel personally catered to and connected to the surrounding area giving them a sneak peak of all that the area has to offer. Some light snacks can go a long way to recharge  energy as your guests unpack in your home.


After a day of traveling,  guests want to celebrate the start of vacation being able to relax and unwind. Supplying a nice bottle of wine or a pack of local beers lets them know you’ve spent time thinking about their experience and care about creating a relaxing and fun atmosphere for their stay. Along with alcohol, guests appreciate bottled water, coffee, hot cocoa, and or an assortment of teas.

Sanitation Items

With COVID-19, traveling will never be the same. It’s important to take all precautions to make your vacation rental a safe and to make sure your guests are comfortable.  By providing hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes and even complimentary masks will  help you to demonstrate that you’re a thoughtful host who truly looks after the  security and safety of your guests. 

The Thought that Counts

It’s truly the thought that counts. Even the smallest and simplest gesture can result providing an upscale experience for the guests enjoying their vacation and furthering the success of your vacation rental. Every vacation rental home is different and unique. The welcome gift should reflect the guest’s needs and the hospitality of the owner.
