Three Tips for Gifting Sheets and Towels

When it comes to gifts, we all love a present that’s both beautiful and practical. And when selected with care, a set of linens or towels can be tough to beat. If you’re considering gifting sheets for an upcoming occasion or holiday, look no further – we’ve rounded up a few tips to make the gift-giving process as smooth as pure pima.

The Best Occasions for Gifting Linens

Sheets and towels make a thoughtful gift for almost any occasion, but there are a few that stand out. A new set of bed linens are a great way to celebrate marriage and two people starting their home together. Correctly-sized sheets and an oversized towel can help make a college dorm or first apartment feel more like home for a recent graduate – check with a family member or the university website to be sure you’ve got the right size. Crib sheets for a new baby, guest sheets for a housewarming, a thoughtful hostess gift of high-quality hand towels – the possibilities are endless. And of course, our favorite occasion of all – luxury bedding to celebrate the traditional second wedding anniversary gift of cotton.

Check the Registry or Wish List

Bedding can be an incredibly personal choice. The fabric, the type of weave, and of course – color or pattern. But thankfully, the digital age has made gift giving a snap with the advent of online wedding, baby, or other gift registries and wish lists for any occasion. Ask if your friends have a registry, and if they do, be sure to select your gift from the registry. While it’s the thought that counts, getting the sheets and towels your loved ones really want will be sure to put a smile on their faces.

Our Favorite Wildcard Options

Even if the recipient hasn’t created a registry or wish list, sheets and towels can be a great gift. There are a few rules of thumb to follow to ensure your present is well-received. First, you may not want to select a wild pattern or unusual fabric for everyday sheets. A spare set of high-quality cotton sheets in a neutral like white, ivory, or gray will always be appreciated. Alternatively, we love the gift of cotton flannel sheets in a cute winter pattern to make cold nights even cozier. Finally, a set of white fluffy towels or hand towels make for a classic – and very welcome – hostess or housewarming gift for a bath linen refresh.

When in Doubt, Opt for Quality

Above all, when giving as gift of sheets or towels, you want them to be of the highest quality. This means skipping polyester or synthetic fabrics and doing your research to be sure that your natural fabrics are as pure as the label says they are. If you’re gifting cotton linens, it’s important to know the distinctions between the different types of cotton. When you choose PimaCott, you know you’re giving a gift made of guaranteed pure pima cotton that will stay soft, strong, and luxurious for years to come. Wamsutta sheets and towels are proudly made with PimaCott, providing quality that proves you really care.
