I purchased several different Flour Sack Tea Towels by FrenchSilver on Etsy as bridesmaid gifts and reader gifts. I put them in a crate & barrel porcelain berry box colander and tied it all up with colored twine. (Pics on my wedding details board). I loved that it was something useful for my girls, and that I could personalize each one. I also think this would make a fabulous housewarming gift.
Reusable towels that you snap back together once you use and wash them! The money and the trees I would save.
