Warning: Your bath towels are at risk. As graduation time comes around again, parents everywhere must understand that their favorite Egyptian cotton towels, soft hand towels and luxurious bath mats are leaving home for good. Your graduating high school seniors are not going to be thinking about sharing as they happily start boxing-up your complete collection of bath linens to take with them to college or into their own first apartments.

As parents, grandparents and friends are searching for the perfect graduation gifts for their favorite scholar, remember this upcoming bath linen dilemma. Graduating high school seniors need a collection of cotton towels and a bath tubmat at graduation time. Parents can be left with terry kids robes to chop into washcloths or they can prepare now to ensure that all members of the family have the bathrobes/towels that they need.

Monogram bathrobes and bath linens make very nice high school graduation gifts. The gift of household necessities adds to the thrill of leaving childhood behind after the high school graduation day ceremonies are completed. A luxury waffle bathrobe, eco-friendly pile of cotton towels or an organic Turkish spa mat will be appreciated daily after your graduate leaves home for college. Monogramming on graduation robes or towels ensures that these adult items will stay with your graduate under all types of conditions.

Teenagers of America, prepare to roll your eyes at your parents, and possibly shout “Gross!”: Mom and Dad might be coming home from their next romantic getaway with matching, leopard-print bathrobes.

Kimpton, an American hotel chain founded in the early 1980s, always strives to offer its guests plenty of comfort and style – they call themselves a “boutique hotel”. This time, they might have outdone themselves. Their current special is a “robe-mantic” retreat.

During the month of February, the hotel chain will offer overnight accommodations for two, along with a $25 credit for hotel dining and, yes, two matching leopard-print bathrobes. The idea is to increase their couples traffic in time for the Valentine’s Day holiday.

Keep the Bathrobes

At many hotels, nice warm, fluffy bathrobes are often on offer – but you’re not supposed to keep them. If you’re in the habit of stealing hotel towels and other amenities, be warned that when it comes to bathrobes, hotels intend to keep them. Some hotels will charge you up to $150 when they discovered you’ve pilfered their bathrobe.

Not in this case – those leopard-print bathrobes are yours to keep.

Teens, you might want to leave the living room now before your parents start fake-growling and clawing at each other.
