    The Towel Day 2014 competition is now CLOSED! We will be announcing the 5 winners of our Personalised Towels on 28/05/2014. Please check the contest page and Bags of Love Blog. Good Luck!

    Towel Day is a day of remembrance and celebration of the late, great Douglas Adams and his cult novel, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. In the book, Adam’s states that the value of towels is “about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have.” He goes on to list the many uses a towel has…here are some favourites:

    “Wet it for use in hand-to-hand combat.”

    “Wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal.”

    “Wrap it around your head to avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter of Traal (a mindboggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can’t see it, it can’t see you – daft as a brush, but very ravenous).”

    “Dry yourself off with it if it still seems clean enough.”

    - Douglas Adams

    As well as being one of the most useful items on the planet, as Douglas Adams has pointed out, we also think they make rather wonderful personalised gifts.

    So to celebrate towel day and all that is wonderful about the towel, we’re giving you the chance to win your very own customised towel; designed by you and made by us.

    Click "Enter Contest" button and upload your design, photo or add text, then follow the steps to enter your towel design into contest. Five winners of Custom Printed Towels will be chosen by our art department and all participants will receive a discount towards their towel orders!
