    How To Be The Perfect Overnight Guest

    The Perfect Overnight Guest

    If you will be spending a weekend with friends or even renting a guest room on Airbnb, there are a few things you can do to ease the stress for both you and your host. Here’s how to be the perfect overnight guest.

    Bring A Little Gift

    It doesn’t have to be something major, just something small and thoughtful. Flowers or wine always work, but even a box of chocolates or a specialty item from the town, state, or country you live in.

    Schedule Me Time

    Even if you are staying with one of your nearest and dearest, we all need a bit of me time. So schedule in some solo time out of the house, and head to your room or out on the patio so that your host doesn’t feel obligated to spend every second with you.

    Contribute Where You Can

    Every host will have different expectations and comfort levels, so contribute where you can. Help clean up after meals, cook a meal or two, order in, and at the very least keep your space clean and tidy.

    As much as we all love to see our out of state loved ones, or to host travelers we must be mindful of one another’s space and boundaries. For example, if you haven’t seen your out of state BFF in years you may be inseparable the first few days—but then you should give them a bit of space with their family. Maybe even offer to babysit one night so that they can go on a much needed date night!
