There are many occasions when we want to give a gift but we aren't quite sure what to give. Or, there are occasions when we are shopping for someone who has everything and we just aren't sure what to get them that they don't already have or that they would appreciate. In these instances you should consider getting custom blankets.
Custom blankets are nice because there are many different things that you can do with them. On birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, and the births of babies you can give a blanket that will not only be appreciated when it is given but it will also be appreciated years down the line. In fact, many blankets become family heirlooms that are passed down from generation to the next. Blankets always make a great gift.
Personalized blankets are always a great idea for that hard to buy for person on your list. Parents, grandparents, and even teachers would appreciate a blanket that has the year as well as the names of the kids that are special to them embroidered on it. Another idea is to have all of the kids or students write a short message on a quilt or blanket and give it as a glorified greeting card! This is always a big hit and will definitely be personalized.
A photo blanket is a great option because there are photos from everyone's life that are worth putting on display or turning into a one of a kind blanket. There are a couple of different types of photo blankets for you to choose from. One type of photo blanket actually has clear pouches in it where you can place printed pictures of your choosing. Because the photos are simply in little slots you wouldn't want to curl up with such a blanket but it would make a nice wall hanging. Another option when choosing your photo blanket is one where a picture or image is actually printed or embroidered onto the surface of the blanket. The blanket features any picture or any selection of pictures of your choosing and because it is printed you can actually snuggle up with this type of blanket if you wanted to. Either of these types of blankets would be loved and could be hung on a wall to put it on display.
As you can see, there are a lot of great options when it comes to giving a blanket as a gift. This may seem like a really simple gift to give, but it is one that will likely be very well received. You may be surprised to find later on that it was a favorite gift, one that would be cherished for years to come and perhaps even handed down to other family members. Create a special gift and give a blanket that you customize specifically for someone in your life.
