Did you hear the big news? Our brand new (and very balanced) pair of cookbooks, Vegan and Baking, hit shelves today! (Shop for the signed copies here.) To celebrate the occasion, we're offering both new titles and Genius Recipes all ready-wrapped for gifting in linen tea towels from Studiopatró. (Shop the wrapped versions here!)

We loved the idea so much (and are so hopelessly smitten with all the tea towels made by Christina Weber at Studiopatró), that we though you might want to apply the strategy to a few other gifts. Here's how we wrapped up a pie, a little plant, and a bottle of wine in tea towels, so they go from being sweet little somethings to gifts that will be used and loved over time. Plus, there's no waste from wrapping paper. 

Pie! Bake or buy a seasonally appropriate pie, set it on the tea towel, and wrap it up by tying together opposite ends of the towel like you would a kitchen trash bag. As a bonus, this wrapping doubles as a handle for toting the pie.

Potted plant! Hopefully your thyme plant looks a little more robust than ours (let's call it a "Charlie Brown herb")—but that's nothing a little tea towel sweater can't make better.

Bottle of wine! Roll it up in the tea towel, then fold down the top to create a cozy little collar. Who says this isn't a fashion website?
