Every year I order calendar tea towels to gift at Christmas from Spoonflower. When Spoonflower has their 2 for 1 fat quarter sale in November, it makes it affordable. Each calendar is then $6.00. I order the cotton poplin and a fat quarter is a complete tea towel. I trim the edges and add binding, of course, before gifting. I'm not gaining anything by telling you about this sale but you might want to think about doing this for inexpensive or last minute gifts to have on hand.
These are some towels I gave at Christmas in 2011.
I try to be more organized for Christmas every year. Time slips by so fast. Happy Gifting.
