Tissue box: While tissue boxes may not be on everyone's list of nightstand necessities, you don't realize how crucial they are until you desperately need one. Save your guests a trip to the bathroom by investing in a beautiful tissue box that adds to the room's decor.

Tray: Since your guests won't have the luxury of putting all of their belongings in their proper places, vanity trays will help them feel less scattered.

Alarm clock: Using a cell phone alarm can be a bit of a pain if there isn't an electrical outlet by the bed. Help your guests stay stress-free by having a cute clock at the ready.

Storage: If a dresser feels too bulky for your guest room, get creative with other storage options. This console offers plenty of places to stash pieces your guests will need easy access to, thanks to the drawer and woven baskets.

Candle: Pamper your guests by placing a scented candle in the room. Consider fragrance notes they're fond of or choose a candle that feels seasonally appropriate.

Notebooks: Put a pretty notebook and pen on the nightstand for your guests. Aside from being handy, it also serves as a thoughtful gift that they can enjoy long after they leave.

Carafe: Keep guests hydrated with a water-filled carafe while adding a pop of color to the room. We're especially crazy about these hand-blown beauties.
