Vacation and Resort Decor

Perhaps you are fortunate enough to own or have access to a vacation home or apartment in a resort area – as an owner you no doubt entertain overnight guests most every weekend while as a guest you want to be considerate and appreciative. There are many thoughtful home d├ęcor items which can be enjoyed by both homeowners and guests season after season.

Skip the scented hostess candles and go for something useful and practical – beach or pool towels are a perfect example. One can never have too many towels when there’s a lake, pool or beach nearby, so a top quality pool towel or large bath sheet makes a great gift. Another thoughtful gift is a set of monogrammed guest towels – these can simply be hand towels or you could get a full set of towels. Most standard towel sets include one bath towel, one hand towel and one washcloth along with a matching bath mat. A set of luxurious velour towels would be appreciated by homeowners and guests alike.
Bedding is another area where more is better in a vacation home. Sheet sets are always useful as laundry can get backed up on busy weekends plus it’s nice to have a range to choose from. Instead of standard cotton sheets a nice set of sateen sheets or a comfortable set of jersey knit sheets is an especially thoughtful and useful purchase.
Pillows are another great idea – a foam pillow will only last a few years while feather pillows may last as many as ten years; a new pillow can be most useful in a vacation home. Temporary bedding solutions such as a nap mat or sleeping bag is great when there are kids around.
