Preparing For Uni With Help From The Towel Shop

The baby years are long gone, toddler tantrums a distant memory. Now parenting seems more about being an open all hours restaurant, taxi-service, PA and counsellor and occasionally a personal shopper.

Four of my seven children have moved out so far and the ritual of sourcing kitchen and bathroom equipment, bedding and towels is quite familiar now. It's a bitter-sweet experience. You are glad to see them becoming happy independent adults but sad to acknowledge they are really too big to snuggle on your lap any more. In fact the older four are all taller than me and the rest are catching up fast.

Recently I discovered the handy home textile site, The Towel Shop (ad) which is a fantastic resource and could potentially save you quite a lot of time, money and effort.

Don't be fooled by the name. The Towel Shop stocks way more than just towels, although the selection of towels is impressive and you can shop for them by colour, weight, size or use.

The Towel Shop also offers table linen, bathrobes, duvets, pillow, cushion pads and bedding which means anyone setting up a new home or updating their current abode can enjoy browsing this one stop shop for items for every room in the house.

With my eldest daughter heading off recently to University we were delighted to discover the website offers a variety of student bedding packs.

We chose the premium full student bedding pack with towels ( RRP £49.32 -gifted) which includes a pillow, duvet, pillow case, fitted sheet, duvet cover and a couple of towels- all in stylish white.

The quality of the bedding was good - nice and soft. The duvet has a basic envelop closure so no fiddly poppers or buttons to deal with. If you want a splash of colour add a throw or contrasting cushions.

The towels were not the thickest but were nice and soft and quite fluffy and the pillow and duvet were perfect. My daughter was delighted with the set and it is perfect for a student or guest room.

Back to towels - after all that is the name of the store. If you want hotel quality that's available too along with beach towels, baby towels, gym and even pet towels. Buy a bale or separately by size.

If you are a fan of bamboo products The Towel Shop has a great selection ranging from bathrobes to bath sheets. Bamboo is apparently super absorbent as well as being a great choice for the eco-conscious shopper.

If you aren't sure about shopping online for textiles don't worry - The Towel Shop offers a 365 day return policy so you can return  unused, unwashed, undamaged goods up to a whole year after purchase if you aren't satisfied. 

Delivery is free to much of the UK - check the website for details.

Disclaimer: I was gifted the premium full student bedding pack with towels free for the purpose of this honest review.
