Bought for myself and my daughter-in-law for the holidays in two different styles. To me, a terrific gift to put out when guests arrive. So many like to have 'their own' handclothes after washing hands in cold/flu season when there are lots of children or sniffly adults around! Heavy weight and not really tacky to carry around to help hostess of something spilled or little ones have a runny nose, or chocolate on their faces! (just a thought) double use!! Just a special, little classy towel (without having to tip a maid in a fine hotel)....makes holiday little extra special in 'every' room!
