Traditionally, linen tea towels were designed to commemorate coronations and celebrations. We love them today as modern heirlooms –– wrapped around gifts, they become special keepsakes. Packaging a gift with a tea towel is simple and impressive, not to mention environmentally kind. And the thoughtfulness is always appreciated by the lucky recipient. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
I love this idea in the springtime, for Mother's Day or a housewarming gift especially. I go to my local nursery, pick out a culinary plant that's ready for the garden or window box, and wrap a tea towel around the pot for a special touch.
Whether it's a dinner party or a birthday celebration you're off to, a favorite bottle (wine or champagne, tequila, olive oil) wrapped in a colorful, patterned tea towel makes the presentation extra special and memorable.
Give away the things you love best: Roll and wrap two jars of homemade or artisanal goods. My favorite pairings are chocolate and caramel sauce, and marmalade and jam.
When friends or family love to cook and bake, there's always a great new cookbook to share. Make it two gifts in one, wrapped with the best kitchen helper, a linen tea towel.
