This post is in partnership with Who Gives a Crap. Funny name, but seriously cool company that donates 50% of their profits to building toilets and improving sanitation in developing countries.

I just had family in town last week for a visit and more family will be coming into town this week. Which means, getting my guest bedroom and bathroom in order has been a top priority the last two weeks.

And since I’ve just about wrapped up the bathroom, I thought I’d share a little sneak peek, along with my top three essentials that every guest bathroom should have before your first guest arrives. Can you guess what they are? You’ll have to click through to find out!

Guest Bathroom Essentials #1: Toilet paper

It’s not the most exciting thing to talk, but it is definitely the most basic of necessities for any bathroom: toilet paper. And since you have to have it, it might as well 1) look cool and 2) be eco friendly to boot. So, I highly recommend stocking your guest bathroom (and even your own) with Who Gives a Crap toilet paper.
They’re individually wrapped in cute pattern papers (my fave pattern is the black and white designs on the bamboo rolls and there’s a more colorful option here as well), so you can keep them out and visible to guests if desired. Plus, each roll is made out of 100% recycled materials, there are no inks, dyes, or scents, and 50% of their profits are donated to building toilets for those in need. With all those benefits, it makes a lot of sense to purchase toilet paper in this way from WGC – and it will come straight to your door. You can order right here and get $10 off (with code PAPERSTITCH).

Guest Bathroom Essentials #2: Toiletries

Another essential to have around for guests is toiletries. Almost everyone forgets to pack their toothpaste or shampoo on a trip. It happens to me all the time! So, I like to have all that stuff ready for guests just in case they need it.

Here’s the running list of toiletries basics I keep in the bathroom: shampoo and conditioner, body wash, a razor, toothpaste, an extra toothbrush, a hair brush, and hair dryer. Bonus points for organic or eco-friendly versions of these items, especially since some guests may have skin sensitivities, etc. Not required of course, but always nice to have if you can!

Guest Bathroom Essentials #3: Textiles

Last but not least, textiles made the list at number three on the guest bathroom essentials list – which includes, shower towels, hand towels, and a bath mat or absorbent rug. Again, organic or eco-friendly towels are awesome if you can get them. But aside from the environmentally friendly aspect of things, finding textiles that are soft, cozy, and comfortable for guests is a must. And if you can find those things in something that ALSO looks cute, then you’ve really found a winner.

More Guest Bathroom Ideas

Outside of my three essentials, there are (of course) loads more items you can add to your guest room to make it feel comfortable and cool for guests. Things like adding artwork, plants, a shower stool for shaving your legs, and other bathroom accessories can really help to tie everything together.

Where did you get the cute stands you’re using on your counter for your toiletries?

Hi Amanda. The wooden ones? The brand is Areaware and I bought ’em from Amazon. Here’s the link: https://rstyle.me/n/c6resimvmw And then the copper basket on the counter by the sink is from The Container Store. Hope that helps.

Awesome Michelle. Glad to hear that. It’s definitely been a nice touch for guests and I genuinely love their mission. So, if I’m already buying toilet paper, why not choose one that gives back, right?!

Brittni | July 10th, 2018 at 12:44 pm

I love the fun designs on the toilet paper! It’s perfect for guests and I love your tips on having all of the toiletries in a basket ready for them, I’m going to start doing this for guests.

Yay. So happy to hear that, Felicia. It’s definitely one of those things that makes a difference for guests to feel comfortable away from home…and it’s such a small and easy thing to do. 🙂

Just because of three items, complete look of the bathroom has been changed.
