I have been curious about photo blankets for a while so I was happy for the opportunity to try one. It’s such a cool concept and as a lover of all things involving photographs, I was eager to try it.
My dad is now in a home for dementia and I thought this would be a great way to get him a blanket to keep on his lap for cold days and remember his family at the same time. We had family photos done right before he moved into the home so I chose a picture of all his grandkids with him.
The website was very user friendly and easy to use. I played around with doing a collage but didn’t like the way it looked. I think because there are so many people in my family pictures, it just didn’t look right but that is an option if you prefer a collage.
Using drag and drop or regular uploading by searching you can easily ad as many pictures as you want and then play around with where they go. I settled on one big picture and when it came, I was happy with the clarity in the photo. You really have to use a high resolution photo so professional ones seem the best way to go.
While the quality of the picture turned out much better than I expected, I was initially disappointed in the blanket itself. I wouldn’t even really consider it a blanket. It’s very thin and while it will provide converge and some protection, I was not counting on it giving out much warmth. It does say it’s made out of high quality fleece and that the type of material was chosen to provide a high quality photo, which it does. I decided to try it out for myself before giving it to my dad and was pleasantly surprised to see that it does provide actual warmth.
It’s a beautiful keepsake and perfect for a lap blanket but I just expected something thicker and nicer that was called a blanket. Luckily, for what I wanted it for, it’s great. My dad will get some comfort for it physically and emotionally by having all his Grandchildren in sight when they can’t be there with him physically.
It would also make a beautiful display to hang on a wall or just as decoration on a bed.
This would make a beautiful gift for Grandparents or new moms or anyone really who would love a keepsake collage blanket to have with them or just put on display! You can enter to win one for yourself or a loved one below.
