birthday gift – tea towel wrapped book

tea towel wrapped book!

For my last birthday, my aunt gave me It’s All Good wrapped in a beautiful hot pink tea towel (aka dish towel but tea towel sounds far more attractive). I thought it was so clever and such a perfect gift. So the credit for this brilliant idea goes to my lovely aunt.

It was recently my aunt’s birthday so I not so inventively gifted her Kris Carr’s Crazy Sexy Kitchen wrapped in a pretty pastel tea towel. I absolutely love Kris Carr, as I shared here, and thought my aunt would enjoy her cookbook/lifestyle book full of wonderful recipes. This gift is so simple yet such a wonderful gift, especially when topped with a flower to add the finishing touch. It makes a great birthday gift or would be perfect for a wedding shower, baby shower, anniversary, house warming or girl’s party gift.
