Here are my 10 must have items before your holiday guest arrive. The holiday season is busy and the stores are packed, be sure to pick these items well before your guests arrive.

1. Hickory Farms Gift Packs
Having Hickory Farms gift packs on hand are great for when guests arrive because they can be used as snacking items or gift giving for unexpected guests.

2. Plenty of Paper Towels 

Messes are bound to happen when guests are in your house and when they do you will be prepared with the Viva® Big Roll Paper Towels. The with choose a size feature is a must have for me during the holiday season because every mess requires a different size paper towel. Reduce the waste when cleaning up holiday messes and select the perfect size to clean up the little or big messes. They’re durable, with a cloth-like texture, and can tackle the job when wet or dry.

During the holidays I am always baking something and my kids love Belgium waffles for breakfast. I always make a mess in the kitchen and that is why I love the Choose-A-Sheet Towel from Viva so I have the perfect sized paper towel for every mess.
