Bath & Body, HomeArt Basel at Home

Today is the coldest day of the year in New York and I can’t stop thinking about Miami.  Seriously, when can I take another trip?  

To tide me over until the next time I hit South Beach and to wrap up in this chilly air, I’ve been using my oversize Art Basel towel, which I love, love, love! These oversize terry cotton towels are huge – 60 x 70 and sooo soft (no prewashing required).  Plus, they don’t pill or leave fuzzies so you can enjoy your art without worrying about a mess.

My favorite is this one by Karen Kilimnik, which brings the beach to me even when I’m stuck in a cold apartment. Each towel retails for $50 at Target making this a perfect last minute holiday present, but one lucky TDO reader will score one for free in a one day only giveaway.  In the comments below, please tell me the next beach you plan to hit and use these towels at.  We’re also planning our next beach trip and would love some ideas.  Contest closes tomorrow at noon EST. Only US entries with valid e-mail addresses please.

    No plans on a beach trip anytime soon – but this would sure be nice to pretend with! I can lay it out in the bedroom and plug in the old heat lamp and just envision myself at the beach!

    Nothing better than a beautiful Art Basel towel to keep me company on my first solo trip! I would love it to join me on the beaches of Brazil or The Galapagos Islands… still trying to decide between the 2! If anyone has input into either, that would be fab 🙂

    Oh boy! We’re heading to the Florida Panhandle for New Years — would love to sip champagne on these beach towels! Thanks.

    I wish I had a beach in my future,lol. But this would be great at the lake,too.

    Beautiful towel! The next beach I am hitting is the beach at the El Dorado Royale Spa Resort in Riviera Maya, Mexico for my HONEYMOON!! 🙂 I would LOVE to tote this towel around with me!

    Beautiful!! I will definitely use this close to home on a regular basis, either at Cardiff or Del Mar (cali) beaches.

    I’m heading to Cancun in 3 days. That’s where I would use mine. Also to wrap myself in at work when it’s cold .

  11. Lucy  |  22 December 2008 at 2:47 PM

    I’m going to Miami in 4 days. This would be a beautiful beach towel to have.

  12. Francesa  |  22 December 2008 at 3:22 PM

    I think a georgeous beach towel makes even lounging at the neighbors’ pool stylish and chic! But I would also take this with me on my annual summer vaca to Martha’s Vineyard, or Folly Beach in Charleston, SC. Or maybe when I head back to Elbow Beach in Bermuda, which has to be one of the most relaxing and beautiful beaches in the world. And it’s a must have for my trip to Macau next year.

  13. kathemc  |  22 December 2008 at 4:11 PM

    Headed to San Diego next — this would be fantastic to have on the beach! So pretty.

  14. Jen  |  22 December 2008 at 4:20 PM

    i would definitley bring this to Cabo when i go next summer.
    but until then i would bring it to whatever California beach i am near.
    and i would probably wear it around the house too, just for fun.

  15. LJ  |  22 December 2008 at 4:40 PM

    I’m hoping my next beach trip is to Key West!

  16. LauraKnapp  |  22 December 2008 at 5:22 PM

    I would love to take this beach towel with me when I move to California in August, I’d take it with me on my first beach trip as a California resident! 🙂

  17. MJ  |  22 December 2008 at 5:52 PM

    Murrells Inlet SC…come visit! 🙂

  18. Michelle  |  23 December 2008 at 12:25 AM

    Someday I plan to go to Myrtle Beach but for now I’m settling for Lake Erie and maybe a side trip to the waterpark at Cedar Point.

    My boyfriend and I are going to St. Petersburg, Florida, next summer to catch a Red Sox-Rays game on our anniversary. I’d love to lounge on the Gulf beaches on this towel, but it will cheer me up through a long cold Boston winter in the meantime!

  20. Julie  |  23 December 2008 at 7:16 AM

    hitting up the beaches of Miami next week.

    Ahhh… the serenity of the ocean. 🙂

  21. Laura  |  23 December 2008 at 7:56 AM

    that towel is gorgeous! My next beach getaway will either be to Negril, Jamaica to celebrate my 3rd wedding anniversary or Charleston, SC.
