6 Must-Have Items to Get Your Home Holiday Ready

We host a lot of family and friends over the holidays, so I want to make sure that my home feels clean and cozy. I want my guests to come over and feel right at home. Thanks to Babbleboxx, my home is prepped and ready for when my guests start arriving next week!

6 Must-Have Items to Get Your Home Holiday Ready

If you’re hosting guests this holiday season, make sure you’re holiday ready with these must-have items:


I have always dreamed of having a robot vacuum. This busy mama doesn’t have a lot of time to clean, so the idea of being able to press a button and have a robot clean my floors while I get other things done, sounds almost too good to be true. But I have to stay, now that I have had a chance to try out the ECOVACS DEEBOT 900, I’m in LOVE!

With the DEEBOT, I can schedule routine cleanings or instantly launch a cleaning at any time from anywhere via the ECOVACS app. The awesome thing is it syncs with Google Home and Amazon smart home systems. All I have to say is, “DEEBOT, start cleaning,” and voila she gets right to work!

Guests coming over last minute? Don’t stress! With a simple click of a button, the DEEBOT goes to work so you can focus on tidying up the rest of your house.

2. Chesapeake Bay Candle

There’s nothing that can make a home feel more warm and inviting than the aroma of a Chesapeake Bay Candle. Designed and poured in the USA, Chesapeake Bay Candles contain a soy wax blend, delivering a clean burn.

The Pumpkin Latte scent is perfect for the holidays. The aroma of praline, pecans, and pumpkin frosting fill the room, reminding you of a crisp autumn afternoon.
