If there’s any brand that has its pulse on what it takes to be a good host, it’s Airbnb. The peer-hosted travel accommodation site currently boasts an ever-growing 5.6 million listings worldwide, in countries ranging from the U.S. and Europe to Cuba and China.

It makes sense, then, that the folks at Arbnb would be very concerned with what makes a home comfortable — and a host or hostess successful. You know the feeling: You open the door to an Airbnb (or a friend’s house) and are immediately enveloped by a warm, welcoming feeling. It’s the scent; the amenities; the care and consideration; the perks — they all combine to create a one-of-a-kind experience you won’t soon forget.

Luckily for all of us with hosting aspirations, Airbnb recently partnered with Etsy on a marketplace collection full of products that will turn your home into the most welcoming place ever — whether you’re actually hosting strangers or just your in-laws. All the picks are sourced from the expert makers on Etsy, so you know you’re still supporting small businesses around the country (and world). Ready to up your hosting game? Check out some of our favorite picks from the Airbnb x Etsy marketplace collection, below.
