Gift idea: Tea towels
Makes a good gift for: Someone who likes to spend time in the kitchen, or just someone who likes to have a good-looking kitchen
In an effort to be better to mother-earth and use fewer disposable things, like paper towels, I have been using my kitchen towels a lot more frequently lately, and I feel like I am always running out of clean ones. A lot of mine are rather dingy looking, so I would love to have the older ones to do the work (like mopping up dog-drool and spilled sauce) and have some nice pretty ones to hang on the oven door. Etsy has tea towels in every color of the rainbow and every imaginable pattern, Target has some cute ones out now, and Williams Sonoma and Sur La Table always have a good selection too. I know Williams Sonoma sells aprons, hot-pads and towels in matching patterns, so you could always put together a little kitchen-gift set with matching, or complementary goodies.
Here are some that caught my eye:
- set of three for $7.00
- one yellow and one grey tea towel for $23.50
- set of three for $37.95
