Christmas around here with 4 little children can be quite hectic! From presents to cooking to controlling the peace……..this Mom has to be ON 100% both for her children but also for her guests! I spent far too many years, crazed and frantic trying to clean up messes and entertain guests! Sooo in attempts to take back Christmas for this Mama……I found just the right products to make the day run itself! We will call them #HolidayNecessities!
Our Christmas morning starts at 6 am and doesn’t slow until roughly 8pm- at which point I drop into my bed fast asleep! My parents are first at my house around 7 am, so I have little time to prepare our home for guest arrival! A few great products make my home welcoming and self-sufficient (if a house could ever be that). I picked all of these up at Walmart as I tend to shop a little late during the holidays- and they are a one stop shop! Here are 5 things you totally need to enjoy holiday entertaining and to make your guests feel welcome in your home!
1- A ready bathroom!
This is hands down the most important room in your house when it comes to guests! I make sure it is sparkling fresh- as your guest is alone in this room so more than likely this room will be more “closely” looked at ( Yes, I do care!). I love to hang some holiday towels in their, fire up a cinnamon candle, and of course stock it with these great paper products:
- Scott® 1100
- Scott® 1100 toilet paper has 100 FREE sheets per roll for even more long-lasting value and performance.
- Scott® 1000
- Scott® 1000 toilet paper gives you the quality, performance and long-lasting value you want in 1,000 sheets
- Only Cottonelle® has CleanRipple Texture, which gets you clean enough to go Commando. Cottonelle® CleanRipple Texture is a proprietary innovation that removes more than the leading value brand.
- Cottonelle® Clean Care
- Cottonelle Clean Care Toilet Paper is strong and has extra-absorbent ripples.
- Cottonelle® Ultra Comfort Care
- Cottonelle® Ultra Comfort Care Toilet Paper is ultra cushiony, ultra luxurious, for an ultra clean and fresh feeling.
2- Holiday Music
Nothing makes people smile more than some festive music! Nothing too loud, just gentle caroling in the background to set the atmosphere for the day!
Because I get a little sentimental on Christmas…………. I always put out a box or two of Kleenex, just in case there are tears of joy or tears of laughter! Something funny always happens when you get everyone together.
- Kleenex® Holiday Oval
- Soft, strong and absorbent, Kleenex® Holiday Oval is the perfect tissue to always have on hand throughout the holidays.

- Designed to never be in the way, Kleenex® Perfect Fit Facial Tissue makes tissues readily available because in moments of care, one soft Kleenex tissue is all you need.
4- Holiday scents
I am totally a smells kind of girl- so I make sure to have an plug in fragrance at the doorways and a few candles burning Christmas aroma! The good fragrances help offset some food and people smells!
5- Paper towels
STOCK UP! You are guaranteed to have a spill or 2, and having LOTS of paper towels handy makes it easier for guests to grab a towel and help out!
- Viva® Paper Towels are the perfect companion for taking on tough messes. They’re durable, with a cloth-like texture, and can tackle the job when wet or dry.
