We Indians turn ourselves into Santa’s every Diwali as this festival isn’t just the festival of lights but also the festival of giving. Right from parents, relatives, and friends, we look for the perfect gift to give. Now, when it comes to gifts, we all want to give something that looks not only pleasing to the eye but also practical to use.
Diwali celebrations are always an occasion of joy. While the air is heavy with the aroma of delicious sweets and snacks, everything you lay eye on is spik and span. Not only walls but even the floors are delightfully decorated with rangolis and diyas. At every second window, you’ll come across colourful lanterns floating.
Not only adults, but even kids are excited about this festival and run around in new, pretty dresses playing and eager for the fireworks. With all the preparations that go for this festive season, one of the most important remains to buy gifts for everyone.
Hands down, bath towel sets can be such a unique gifting option. They can be of so much use to the receiver whether an anniversary gift or festive gift, high-quality towels are loved by each family.
If you want to take a step ahead, you can also get the receivers name embroidered and turn it into a personalized gift. Or you can gift a great towels set, complete with hand towels and bath towels to turn it into a gift basket.
While shopping for towels, we have a guide that can help you buy the perfect towel. Read on to find out!
- 1. Fibre
You’ll find a variety of fibres for bath towels- cotton, polyester, and so on. But the best ones are 100% cotton. They are super soft and most absorbent.
Under the premium range, you’ll find more variety under the names of Egyptian or Turkish cotton. They are fluffy and highly absorbent but will take a longer time to dry.
If you’re looking at something less expensive, then opt for a cotton-polyester blend. They dry quickly and are more durable.
- 2. Production mechanism
It is also essential to consider how the towels were produced whether they are combed to remove short fibres or spun together in rings.
The yarn can also be twisted. These techniques make the thread more durable and robust. Similarly, the zero twist technology increases the absorbency level of the towel making it plusher.
- 3. Weight
We measure the weight of towels in GSM (grams per square meter). The higher the GSM, the better the quality. For daily use, you can look for towels of GSM 300-400.
For more sophisticated plus towels look for a higher GSM of approx 600-900. They are more dense and absorbent.
- 4. Know what you want
It is crucial to know what you’re looking for before even starting to buy. Whether you’re looking for a daily use towel or an ultra-absorbent plus towel.
If you’re looking for a beach towel, then a cotton-polyester blend can be a better option than a premium Egyptian cotton towel.
