Having friends and family stay over at Christmas can seem stressful and busy. Still, if you have everything planned and sorted ahead of time, then when your guests eventually do arrive, things can run as smoothly as possible for everyone.
We have gathered together some practical but stylish items to help you host the whole family this Christmas in the smoothest way possible.
Having a spare bed is always beneficial for guests staying over, but having an inflatable mattress isn’t always the most practical option. A sofa bed is a great alternative, and Urban Outfitters is stocking some fantastic options, with a range of styles and colours to suit any home. The ‘Theo Orange Velvet XL Sofa Bed’ is a great choice, as it’s modern, comfortable and stylish. This sofa comes in grey, green, blue and a range of different sizes.
The Kota 3-Seater Velvet Clic Clac Sofa from Habitat is another good option, working as a small double bed and has a great space-saving design.
Christmas always calls for some Christmas bedding, and we have found some fashionable options that are perfect if you are looking for a subtler option that could be used throughout the winter, not just for Christmas. The ‘Linen Yard Tufted Duvet Cover and Pillowcase Set’ from Next is a great choice and comes in a full range of sizes.
Alternatively, John Lewis also has some beautiful Christmas bedding to choose from. Our favourite is the ‘Winter Scene Double Duvet Cover Set’.
Next also has some great Christmas design towels for your guests to use after a hot bath or shower – because who doesn’t love a festive towel set. Our personal favourite is the Scandi Trees Towel, which you can buy as a hand towel, bath towel, or both. There are plenty of other Christmas designs to choose from if you want to select an alternative colour scheme.
