I want to make a guest tray for my house guests on friday. What can I put on it ?

I want the yummiest biscuits?
The best tea ?
Thoughtful book ?
tissues ?
water bottle or carafe ?
sleep spray
mints?

I want a wow reaction its for a man so no magazines !

no one likes biscuits ?? I have gluten free ones so I`m no help and I don`t think digestives will muster !

You need Martha Stewart.com

Covers everything like this in minute detail.

(am aware that I need to get off that woman's website and get a life... smile )

Kettle/mug
Harrods Almond and Milk Chocolate Biscuits
Harrods English Breakfast tea bags
Real milk not UHT
Book - something witty/amusing "Mother Tongue" by Bill Bryson
Today's newspaper
Tissues - yes, man-sized
Water bottle with glass, as carafe water might go a bit "off"
Small radio

Personally wouldn't do sleep spray or mints.

wtf is a sleep spray please?

A good car magazine or Psychology magazine good.

Or a coffee table type book/national geographic/The Field etc always a good read for blokes.

Duchy Original yummy biscuits and tea and luxury hot choc.

Bottle of water

Extra blanket/pillow and hot water bottle.

Spare toothbrush and mini toothpaste, and a Lonely Planet/city guide for your area - or a map at the very least.

I got new towels and a flannel, my borrowed Asprey soap from Gleneagles. A new toothbrush, mini paste and mouthwash. Two books will get a tech Mag, puzzle book and buy a map tomorrow brilliant ideas.

I got bottle of Strathmore water gorgeous bottle he loves anything Scottish.
I got the smallest Daylesford organic biscuits complete con nearly£ 4.00 for a mouthful of Shortbread. !

Leaving out mints, doing a small Male Molton brown shower gel and shower scrunchie (sp).

Sleep spray for example Origins sleep spray relaxes enhances sleep.

Many thanks for the ideas I`ll use the other ideas next time !
