Welcome To Towel Day Competition!

2013 Towel Day Contest
The 25th of May can only mean one thing, Towel Day! What? You’ve never heard of Towel Day? Well, let us fill you in… The day is a celebration of the life and work of the late Douglas Adams observed by his fans through carrying a towel all day. A quote from Adams’ work ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’ states the value of towels as being about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have’. Indeed, towels have many uses which Adams outlines:

‘You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta’
‘Wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat’
‘Wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal’
‘Dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough’
   – Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy



Here at Bags of Love we would also argue that towels make great personalised photo gifts! So, to celebrate Towel Day we’re giving you the chance to win an awesome custom towel.

  • WHOOPS! I just submitted my design for the competition but didn’t follow the proper instructions (!) and put my name as it is and not nicolalowry#towelday.
    How can I rectify this?

    • That’s alright Nicola, need not worry. We found your design and have uploaded it on Facebook. Thanks
