Tea towels are a great way to present a gift as they are easy to wrap with and double as an extra present. You don’t have to spend up large; look for specials and multipacks at homeware stores. A couple of bottles of craft beer wrapped together makes a nice gift. TIP: It may take a few goes to perfect this one! STEP ONE For a wine or Champagne bottle, place your bottle on an angle at the corner of the tea towel and simply roll inwards, folding the bottom up as you go, like fish-and-chip wrapping. Secure with some ribbon or string at the top.
STEP TWO For beer bottles, place your bottles endto-end at the corner of the tea towel, leaving about a 5cm gap between them. Roll them up in the tea towel until you reach the opposite corner. Stand the bottles up side by side and tie the tea towel ends together in a knot, creating bunny ears (see right). Wooden baubles and natural-coloured linen tea towel from Citta.
