OT? Need suggestions for gift, bathrobes

freeeloveOctober 17, 2008

Hi all! Hope this is not off topic, but....

I am looking to buy good quality bath robes as engagement presents to very special friends.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Would love to hear advice on what to look for? Micro terry? Bamboo? 100% cotton?

I would really like them to be plush and Durable, looking to purchase ones that will wash well for them over time.

I received an amazing robe from "Peacock Alley" as a engagement gift from my brother, quality top notch, so luxurious,I had to let my hubby claim it! But at $99 a pop, I am looking for a more affordable set of two.

If I must bite the bullet, I would spend more on robes that anyone recommends is worth it.

Unless you stumble into a fabulous deal, you sure won't find any yummy plush amazing robes for under $99. In fact I don't think you will find 2 the same for under about $190 each.
Well...maybe I over estimated.....check what Bloomie's has....not too bad!

Got a bamboo robe for DW last Christmas. It's 65% bamboo and 35% Egyptian cotton. She absolutely loves it. Got it online from Turkish Towels in NJ. List price is $90, but they now have a Fall Sale for 25% off and free shipping. Brookstone sells the same robe for $100. I suspect other retailers carry something similar. The robe (one size) is fairly large and somewhat heavy, but no problem for my smallish wife. Material is very soft and there have been no problems with washing/drying. Great for right after one's shower/bath; relatively too bulky/heavy for use as a house robe. Since hubby now has yours, you should get one for yourself, too, especially at the sale price. Good luck!
