Finding the perfect gift for family and friends may seem like an impossible feat, but it doesn’t have to be. Before you head out to aimlessly wander the store aisles – or worse, give up the quest and settle for a generic gift card – Lisa Iafrate suggests wrapping up a gift that your loved ones will be wrapping themselves in year after year.
“TaLii Towels are the perfect gift for everyone in the family,” says Lisa, who owns TaLii Towels with her daughter Talia.
TaLii Towels are made of a velvety-soft suede microfibre that is five times more absorbent and 75 per cent thinner than a standard terry towel, making them the perfect companion for the beach, cottage, boat or almost anywhere you’d use a traditional towel.
While traditional towels don’t often find their way into holiday gift exchanges, TaLii Towels have become increasingly popular. They come in different sizes and colours and can be customized with words and images which make these a great gift for everyone on your list.
“Put the name of your boat or cottage on your beach towels, include your child’s favourite cartoon character on their poncho,” suggests Talia. “Or add grandma’s hand-written recipe to a commemorative kitchen towel.”
Best of all, TaLii Towels are available for purchase through their website, making for a one-stop mall-free shopping experience.
“Simply select your size, colour, and customization, and we’ll take care of the rest,” says Lisa.
