Wow – can you believe we’re only a week away from Thanksgiving?!  I can practically smell the Turkey roasting – I’m so excited for good food!  This year, I’ll be spending Thanksgiving with my dad out in Arizona, so I’ll get to enjoy some nice sun for a couple of days.  The good thing about going out of town for Thanksgiving is that I don’t have to clean and prepare my house for guests.  My dad, on the other hand, will have to make his home guest-worthy.  If you’re having guests this Thanksgiving, make sure you take advantage of our awesome Shop & Earn deals as you prepare for your company.  For a LIMITED TIME, Drugstore.com, Soap.com, GAP, and REI are offering DOUBLE SWAG BUCKS for every dollar spent!

First impressions are always key!  So, you want to make sure your house smells good and welcoming for when your guests first arrive. I find that the plug-in air fresheners always work well.  You can get yours at Drugstore.com and right now you’ll earn 12 Swag Bucks for every dollar you spend!

AirWick Scented Oil Warmer

You gotta have some fancy soap in the bathroom for your guest.  Not only does it add a nice touch, it sends a message of hospitality and warm welcome.  This peppermint hand soap by Avalon Organics will do the trick!  Pick yours up from Soap.com, and right now you’ll earn 6 Swag Bucks for every dollar you spend!

If you want to be extra generous, you can have a warm pair of slippers waiting at the edge of the bed.  I’ve had a friend do that for me once, and it was an awesome surprise!  I now use the idea when I have guests come over.  You get the best reactions from it – I highly recommend it.  You can pick up some comfy, cozy slippers, like these, from GAP.  Right now you’ll earn 4 Swag Bucks for every dollar you spend!

Moccasin slippers

Now with the cold weather, you want to make sure you have plenty of extra blankets to keep your guests comfortable.  I can’t sleep without being bundled up in my blankets.  REI has a really nice and really warm Fleece Blanket available that is sure to keep your company cozy.  Shop there now and earn 6 Swag Bucks for every dollar you spend!

What’s the one thing you always make sure to have prepared for your guests?

Until next time,
