Looking for a creative hostess gift this summer?
My friend Leigh told me about this amazing idea that she came up with, of personalizing beach towels for the cottage. How amazing would this be as a hostess gift? This morning she sent me the photo of the towels that she did and explained the process. "I bought these big colourful beach towels at Homesense (about $15/towel) and then took them to the local sports store in town that specializes in hockey and baseball equipment," she says. "For $5 a towel, they embroidered huge red numbers in a classic serif font on each towel."As a cottager, I know how towels get tossed around so you are constantly wondering where your own is. I love the idea that every weekend, everyone has their own number. Kids will always remember which towel is theirs!Lindsay Stephenson is one of our guest bloggers, who has her eye on all things fabulous in Toronto.
