    Vacation Rental Basket Ideas

    According to BuildUp, 57% of hosts provide guests with a welcome basket or gift bag when they check in to a vacation rental. A gift bag can be a simple, inexpensive way to make guests feel welcome and appreciated. Not sure what to put in your gift baskets for your vacation rental? We have a list of easy ideas, plus where to find them on Amazon:

    • The basket itself can be a gift.

      For instance, own a beach home, offer a beach bag. Live in an area that only takes reusable grocery bags, offer a reusable grocery bag. A drawstring bag can also be useful on any occasion!
      • Beach Bag: We like the Leisureland Large Beach Tote Bag. It comes in over 30 different colors and patterns and is only $15.
      • Reusable Grocery Bag: The BeeGreen Reusable Grocery Bags set is less than $17 for ten; that’s ten guests to give them to. Plus, they are highly rated and machine washable.
      • Drawstring Bag: Like reusable grocery bags, drawstring bags come in large sets. The KUUQA Bags come in a set of 15 with a variety of vibrant colors.
    • Breakfast drinks are always popular.

      Provide your guests with the coffee, tea, and even hot cocoa that they might want to drink and relax with during their vacation mornings.
    • Vacationers enjoy hints of luxury.

      Small things like bath salts, bath bombs and candles can go a long way to your guests.
