Are you looking for a Christmas Gift Idea for someone who loves to travel or who loves to go swimming? I would like to recommend this fantastic beach towel from Tesalate which is made from their exclusive AbsorbLite microfiber fabric. They say that their ‘exclusive AbsorbLite™ microfiber (80% polyester + 20% polyamide) has been specifically engineered to create a towel that makes your beach days more awesome than before.’ I was sent one of their colourful towels to review and I am totally in love with it!
The Tesalate beach towels are available in so many designs and I really had a hard time deciding which one I liked best. In the end I opted for ‘To Tuscany‘ as I loved the bold, beautiful roses in the design. My other favourites were ‘Bohemian‘, ‘Heartbeats‘ and ‘Is this Love?‘.
The Tesalate beach towel is ultra compact which means it packs away really easily into a suitcase or swimming bag, it is super absorbent and full size (160cm x 80cm / 63 x 31 inches) – this means you only need to take the one beach towel with you to dry your body as it is big enough and actually absorbent enough to dry you, it dries quickly which means you don’t have to carry around a really wet towel all day and lastly it has somehow been magically made so that it is sand-repellent and sand doesn’t stick to it when wet!
I haven’t yet tried out the towel with the sand at the beach, as I am not really a fan of swimming at the beach in the cold, however I did try the towel out at the swimming pool on a caravan holiday in Great Yarmouth! Whatever the weather I always love a holiday!
The Tesalate beach towel came in its own little drawstring pouch which meant it was really easy to pack in my suitcase for my travels. It’s always a bonus if you can find items, such as this, which allow you to pack more in your suitcase because space is always at a premium when packing for a holiday. After I’d been swimming on my holiday I used my Tesalate towel for the first time and it was brilliant! It dried my body quickly and even when the towel was wet – it wasn’t ‘wet wet’… It was just damp. According to the Tesalate website their towels are engineered to dry in half the time of a regular beach towel so that you don’t have to walk round with a soggy towel all day if you have been using it at the beach, etc.
I was like a child with a new toy when I took my towel on holiday. I was showing it to my dad and explaining it, then to my sister, then my mum. Everyone was very impressed with it and they all loved the bright vibrant ‘To Tuscany’ design as much as I did (you can see the full design of the towel in the photo below). The towel has an unusual texture which is hard to describe….it is soft to the touch with a sort of waffle weave. You can see a slightly raised grid of tiny squares all over the towel. I am no expert but I believe this helps with the absorbency of the towel. According to the website the towel can absorb over 1 litre of water!Tesalate is an Australian brand but they offer FREE worldwide shipping on all their towels! How cool is that! When they offered to gift me one for a review I thought it would take ages to arrive as it was coming from Australia but I couldn’t believe it when it arrived in just a matter of days via Parcelforce Worldwide. So if you are in the UK like me, or elsewhere, looking to order one of these towels as a Christmas gift for someone it should arrive in plenty of time. Although to be on the safe side please do double check with Tesalate to find out the estimated delivery time before placing your order. You can message them on Facebook or send them an email via their website. Details are on their ‘Contact Us‘ page.

There isn’t much more left to say in this review apart from I am very impressed with the quality and absorbency of this towel plus it is really useful to me that it doesn’t take up a lot of space when packed in a bag as it means I don’t have such a struggle when trying to pack everything I need for a holiday or to take to the swimming pool/beach. Huge thanks to Tesalate for gifting me this towel, I will use it loads over the coming years!
