Awesome Summer Gift Idea

Hey guys! Have a friend that you need to buy a gift for this summer but stuck on what to get them? Here is a great DIY project that is so simple and thoughtful.

All you need are the following items:
– Beach Towel
– Bottle of wine
– One or two magazines
– Bottle of sunscreen
– Large wired ribbon
– *optional* Pair of flip flops
– *optional* Pair of sunglasses

I created this gift for one of my girlfriends birthdays and she absolutely loved it. The beach towel I bought her was one of those nice big Egyptian cotton towels from Costco so I had to fold it the long way in thirds. Then I layed the wine bottle on top of the towel at the edge with the top slightly higher than the towel. I then tightly rolled the towel up around the wine bottle. *Hold it tight!* I layed two magazines on top of the rolled up towel and wrapped the large wired ribbon round it and pulled it tight into one knot. Then I placed the sunscreen over the knot and tied the ribbon over it and secured it with a double knot. Then I tied the ribbon into a bow and cut the loose ends. Tadaa!

  1. The type of material your beach towels are made from has a direct impact on the absorbency of the towel. Thick terry is one of the best materials for beach towels as they tend to soak up the moisture the fastest. Terry is also warm, and because it is thick, it is nice to lie on at the beach. You will want to make sure that your beach towels are made of 100% cotton for the best absorbency, and to make sure that your towel performs the way you expect it to, Egyptian or Turkish cotton is the best way to go. ”
