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.
