The group of ladies that I make baskets with has a lovely Christmas luncheon where small gifts are exchanged. One of the members and I went in on the basket towels. My local embroiderer is just down the street from me. She was kind to find the basket and make them up for us. There were some leftover towels so I had Merry Christmas put on them for myself. Throughout the year you could have monograms or initials put on towels to perk them up. She monograms almost anything with anything you want. I think it's a great way to make an inexpensive gift very fancy. If I had embroidery on my sewing machine I would do this very often. I strongly suggest making friends with your local embroiderer.
