Have yourself a very Hammamas Christmas
Did you know that Santa Claus (AKA Father Christmas) was born in Turkey? The legend of Santa Claus can be traced back hundreds of years to a monk named St. Nicholas. It is believed that St. Nick was born just a little while ago in 280 A.D. in Patara, near Myra in modern-day Turkey
The tradition of Noel Baba (as he’s called in Turkish) is for him to bring gifts to deserving children on New Year’s Eve. We hope you don’t leave it that late to pick presents for your loved ones. Even with a 24 hour dispatch time from order, and the magic of Christmas on our side, we might struggle to help you out.
With just over one month to go before Christmas day, here are our tips for the perfect Hammamas for every man, woman and child in your family; ensuring that a nice fresh cotton beach towel is waiting under the tree for each of your nearest and dearest. We’ve thrown in a few other suggestions along the way too. Happy shopping!
For your mum
Maybe you’re taking an extended family road trip to camp by one of Australia’s stunning beaches or perhaps you’re having a Christmas poolside; either way a 100% Turkish cotton Hammamas towel is the perfect accompaniment. Here are our top suggestions for a perfect Christmas by the beach, whichever of our great states you find yourself in:
The Great Ocean Road is an obvious choice but we like the other side of the Victorian Peninsula too. Starting at Mount Eliza, stop in at Dromana and continue along to Sorrento for some quiet, beautiful sand and sea.
With 140kms to choose from The Grand Pacific Drive in New South Wales has something for everyone from rainforests to coastal cities and townships.
As the largest mountain range in South Australia, there’s plenty to explore in The Flinders Ranges.
Or head to the Great Barrier Reef and spend some time swimming amongst 400 types of coral and spotting the 6,600 species of sea life across the hundreds of islands which populate the area.
Then if you find yourself at a carols by candlelight concert, your Hammamas will serve perfectly as both a picnic rug (try our Hammamas Jumbo for that) and then later as a blanket or shawl if it’s gets cooler in the evening. You could even pair your choice of Hammamas with a fragranced soy candle to keep that Christmas glow going.
For your sister
Five gold rings? More like a bunch of handwoven tassels. Gold is the colour of the Sun and light – both very important in the dark winter. Gold was also one of the presents brought to the baby Jesus by one of the wise men and traditionally it’s the color used to show the star that the wise men followed. And both red and gold are the colors of fire that you need to keep you warm.
We recommend choosing a Hammamas Original Sunshine. This design is lightly striped and can transform into a sarong or beach dress at a moment’s notice so your sister will look the part all Christmas day by the water.
Big, small or twin, your brother’s probably been through a lot with you. If he’s a tech gadget then he’ll probably love a new smart speaker so he can listen to his favourite tunes, podcasts and news channels.
Then yes…you’ve guessed it – throw in a Hammamas towel too! Evergreen plants, like Holly, Ivy and Mistletoe are typically associated with Christmas. Embrace the Greens and go for a Hammamas Reef navy/apple. The bold and slim stripes with great colour combinations will mean he makes a real statement by the pool or on the beach.
As well as red apples, red is also the color of Holly berries and Bishops robes; not to mention the all-famous uniform worn by St. Nicholas! Dad has been your ally and maybe even best mate since you were born. So return the favour, show him how much you love him and treat him to a Hammamas Resort Red/Navy, instead of the usual pair of socks. Splash out with some extras in his stocking with some great coffee, old whiskey or fancy new sunnies!
For the kids
It has to be something from our brand new Fiesta range! Flamingo and Fish prints in Ocean, Guppy, no…wait…Jaffa, oh we can’t decide, they are all too fun! With five to choose from, everyone can have a unique design and colour. Get them to match your pool floats!
Quick drying, a Turkish cotton towel will serve you all day and evening whether you’re playing a game of beach or backyard cricket or drying off after a water fight with your favourite super soaker.
Don’t forget, if you’re having a beach or pool-side lunch, you can use an additional Hammamas as a tablecloth to really show off your Christmas spread!
Our orders are dispatched within 24 hours once received, in time for the inevitable Christmas rush which should leave you plenty of time to spend on the wrapping. Share your works of art with us on Instagram @hammamas.aus using the #haveahammamaschristmas
