Cutlery is also a good choice. There are canteens of cutlery for every possible occasion, from fine dining to barbecues and summer parties. To round off your new-found sophistication, you could ask for crystal glasses. These can be tradition and contemporary, with a range of fashionable options available. Bathroom Accessories Relegate your old towels to beach use and treat yourself to a new set of luxury towels. Choose neutral colours and use your bathroom accessories to add splashes of colour, and add super-soft matching robes. Traditional lists A traditional list involves you compiling your own list and distributing it to those who ask to see it. You should include the manufacturer's name, model and colour of whatever items you've asked for.
