"Heirloom" can mean a lot of things; I tend to think a lot about the old-fashioned urge to make the simple functional items of our daily lives beautiful and worth looking at as well as useful. I love fresh-smelling linens but hate heavy or chemical-based scents and sprays. So simple sachets do the trick nicely. This little lace version is so quick to make that I've got one now in every drawer: I like filling mine with lavender and dried bergamot rind.
