  1. I want more towels. I am looking today. I try to buy more every year around this time.

  2. Great ideas! I personally always love practical gifts. I like getting items that I can actually use!

  3. Tamra Phelps says:

    I usually go with towels because there’s no such thing as too many, lol. In our last move, an entire big box of towels & sheets somehow never showed up. I picture someone finding a big box of towels & sheets on the side of U.S. 27 & just wondering how it got there, ha.

  4. These are good ideas, I like making gift baskets for house warming, some things I haven’t considered before. And of course, buying these since they are made in the USA!!!!!!!

  5. Tamra Phelps says:

    We could use a new clock. There’s nothing wrong with the old one but it ticks too loudly, lol. It drives me nuts!
