Mother’s Day shopping can be a challenge. We all know you can’t get mom a vacuum cleaner or anything that smacks of domestic chores, but here’s an item you can get: kitchen towels. Yes, we’re walking a fine line here, but trust me.
There’s a nostalgic component to these towels that negates any accompanying objectionable household expectations. No one would expect mom to actually use them. The towels are printed with your handwritten recipes. Or, in my case, my grandmothers’ handwritten recipes.
A quick Google search will provide you with a number of do-it-yourself methods for creating these on your own. And while I consider myself somewhat crafty, printing on linen and iron-on transfers sent me straight to Etsy where I found someone to print them for me.
You’ll be able to find a number of places that can create these custom towels, using a variety of methods. I prefer the ones printed directly on linen.
There’s still time if you hurry and dig out a recipe to use. The ones I ordered have a one-week turnaround.
