linens that match
Do not adorn your guest bed in mismatched, who-knows-what-fabric sheets. For the holidays and beyond, it's a good idea to have a lovely set of "guest sheets" on hand at all times. They're an excellent way to turn "you never know" moments into opportunities for haute hosting, and your parents can stop worrying that they didn't teach you the importance of having proper linens in the house.
