Got holiday guests coming in from Amarillo or Alabama? Then you’ve probably already cleared out the guest room, put fresh linens on the bed and made some room in the closet. But to make sure your guests feel totally comfortable in their temporary digs, you might want to provide a few extras.

Here’s a checklist of things you might want to provide. Arrange them in a basket, and leave it on the nightstand:
• Travel-size bottles of shampoo and conditioner
