Who could have ever thought there are various other ways of keeping your memories? We're not talking about photo albums here or those posts on your social media accounts. We mean photo blankets that can hold your favorite memory for you for a long time. Customizing a blanket with your very own pictures is one of the greatest ways to preserve the things that you want to remember. It's the best way to be in a moment that has already passed; reliving it day by day. You can even embrace it, wrap your fingers around it, feel the soft fabric of your memory against your skin. And then you just wait until the splurge of events come running back to you, and you can't help but smile as you remember it.
On the other hand, having your own photo blanket is not only limited to the memories you have created. You can also impart the things and places that you want to experience in your personalized photo throws. You can present the things you want to have, places you want to visit, and the people you want to meet. The sky's the limit when it comes to customizing your blanket with your own photos.
There are many ways to customize your photo blankets. First, think of the best thing that has happened to you that was caught on camera. It can be your graduation, prom, birthday, or any significant milestone in your life. You can say that thing was the best if you can still remember that moment until now. If you can still recall the exact time that moment happened. Besides, if it's the greatest thing that's ever happened in your life, you won't ever forget about it. That is why having it as your personalized photo throws will be amazing. It's like walking down memory lane time and time again but in the most comfortable way possible.
Remember the funniest thing you did that you took a photo of. Having that on your photo blankets will be hilarious. You'll probably have stomach cramps from laughing too much every time you see it. Learning to laugh at yourself is a sign of a healthy mental state. Your family and friends can laugh at you as well, just don't bring out the most embarrassing one. Remember that there's a thin line between what's funny and what's embarrassing. Be sure not to cross that line or you will regret it. Well, come to think of it, you can place your most embarrassing memory on custom photo blankets. Just don't let anyone who isn't close to you see it.
Find the photo of the most important person in your life. Having a custom photo blanket of that person can bring positive effects to your health. You'll always be of good cheer whenever you see them on your couch, looking the same as you last saw them in that photo. However, there are cases when it might not be a good idea. If the most important person in your life brings back sad and bitter memories, you might want to think of another that can bring you smiles. Besides, when that person is far away and you miss them, you can cuddle with their face on your throw anytime.
Snap a photo of your favorite place in the world to turn into a desirable photo blanket. It can be a place where nobody knows or a place where you and your friends always hang out. This place can be somewhere near you or in another country. If your favorite place is one you've never been to, you can always print out a picture of it from the web. You can constantly visit that place in your dreams as you sleep soundly under its sheets. Having a photo of the place you want to visit serves as a reminder for you to pursue that desire. So you see, picture blankets serve two purposes: one, to remind you of your sweet memories, and two, to urge you to make more significant ones.
Take a picture of your hobby, even the weirdest ones. But not those really weird things that are too graphic for the public to see. Hobbies like collecting stamps, seashells, writing, skiing, scuba diving, and more. Since having a photo blanket is all about revealing a bit of yourself, might as well get really personal. It's like putting a piece of yourself in those covers; completely vulnerable. On one hand, it's a great conversation starter when you have friends over. You'll never know, they might even have the same hobby as you. On the other hand, it might come out as an obsession to that hobby. But you can always explain that you only want to express how you spend your leisure time through your blankets.
This is exclusive only to those who have pets. Pet owners can incorporate their darlings into their photo blankets in the cutest way possible. You can choose photos that you took yourself or pictures that were taken at a studio. Anything is fine as long as it captures the cutest profile of your favorite pet. Having their faces on your a bed blanket or a throw is another way of saying you appreciate their existence. Pets can be of really great help especially when you're going through a rough time. Their presence alone can bring you cheer and happiness. Suddenly, all your problems seem meaningless and unimportant. It's because you see how your pets perceive the world; to them, you are their world.
Print out a photo of your favorite celebrity, band, or author. You may not notice but these people are actually your great influencers. The way you talk, dress, and think is the subtle combination of everything you have heard or seen from the people you idolize. If they brought upon positive impact in your life, having them for photo blanket throws can be a sign of gratitude. This customization is often popular amongst teenagers. Fangirling is something that they do whenever they see their beloved boy bands on TV or elsewhere. Imagine the number of screams and shrieks they will let out upon seeing blankets with the faces of their favorite guys on it.
For those with a more literary root in their genes, having their favorite book's cover on their photo blanket will be literally mind-blowing. Getting them printed on their shirts is one thing, but having them printed on a blanket is a completely different dimension. Bookworms and bibliophiles will probably have tons of custom photo blankets to be printed because there is no such thing as a single favorite book. They have lots of them, with authors, characters, and storylines that they adore.
Find your best family picture and have them on your photo blankets. You can choose one dating back many years ago when you and your siblings were little. That will bring a wave of nostalgic memories and you can't probably help but cry or laugh at all the silly things you did back then. You can also choose to have the latest family picture that you took together. The hardest part of growing up probably is that at one point, you're growing apart from your family. You only get to see them during the holidays or Thanksgiving. Paying a visit comes around only once or twice every year. But seeing your complete family on your custom picture blankets will have two effects: one, it will make you miss them which will lead to effect number two, you will want to spend more time with them as often as you can.
Pick a photo of you and your best friend displaying your best angles. Showing how much you appreciate your closest friend through a custom photo blanket is awesome. Surely, it's not the conventional way of valuing your friendship, but it will certainly leave a memorable mark. Besides, writing them a letter, making them friendship bracelets, and whatnots are all outdated acts. They're genuine, yes, but you need to be more creative than that. Once your best friend visits your place and sees your blanket with the photos of you together, they will totally feel how much you cherish them.
Display your favorite holiday in your very own photo blankets. Sure, there are ready-made bedding designs of all the holidays in the world, but nothing beats the design coming from your own sense of creativity. You can have the photo of the most memorable holiday you had, which is why it became your favorite. You can always replace it whenever a new unforgettable moment tops that previous one. It's such a shame that holidays only last for a few days. Having your most memorable holiday as your personalized picture blankets enables you to relive that time for as long as you want, even when that holiday already passes.
Aside from having these customizable blankets for yourself, you can also give them to others as gifts. That's right! You won't have to spend too much time thinking what to get your family and friends for their birthday or Christmas. All you need to spend time thinking about is what photo you want to recreate with the blankets.
Here are different ideas to customize your photo blankets as gifts to your loved ones.

She will not see that coming.
A picture of you and your siblings turned into a photo blanket for your grandparents will melt their hearts. Your grandma and grandpa want to spend as much time with you as possible.

You can add your own to the list; those that you have done, and those that you are planning to do with the customizable photo blankets. There are countless of ways and endless possibilities to recreate and use your photos, especially if you're someone who's into taking lots of them.
Photographers will probably have a difficult time in choosing which photo they're going to use for the photo blankets. There's just too many great shots to choose from! Either way, they still get to enjoy their shot in the comfort of their own home. The idea behind customizing picture blankets is that we want you to have the freedom of creating your own blanket design. Surely, we have plenty of remarkable designs and patterns, paired with vibrant colors and styles, but there's just something special when the design really comes from your own pocket of imagination.
It gives you this sense of pride knowing that you were able to come up with something so creative and humorous at the same time. We also value memories in various aspect. We want you to be able to recreate and revisit these memories through the photos you've taken before. This will make the photo blankets very personal. And that's what makes it the best design for you.
However, when you just don't know which picture to use, you can always put in many of them for good measure. You can create a collage of up to 25 photos! It's like having a photo album stocked in one comfortable blanket!
Here are some ideas for your photo blanket’s collage.
Select the best photos of your favorite out-of-town or out-of-the-country trip. You know you've taken too many pictures during your last trip that it won't just fit one album on Facebook. We can't blame you for that, though, because we know the place you visited was just too charming for words. For times like that, a photo collage is very helpful because you get to pick a number of your favorite shots and include them in the design. To turn your adventures into custom photo blankets, choose the best sceneries and angles you took. Pick those that show the incredible places, food, and people you've met and seen along the way. So that when you sleep at night, you get to revisit those memories and relive them in your dreams.
Another way of designing collage photo blankets is by displaying all the trips you've taken in your life. Pick one photo from every trip and turn them into the most creative collage ever. It would be really cool if you took the same poses in different places. It would be like a blanket diary that shows all your adventures in one giant fabric. When you fill an entire blanket space, you can go on and make more memories and adventures by traveling to the places you've never been before.
Choose the pictures that capture the most memorable moments with loved ones. Be it with your family, your significant others, or your friends, relive the most precious times of your life through custom photo blankets.

If you haven't seen your friend for a long time, a memento of everything you've been through together will keep you company. And if you happen to be in a long distance relationship, a photo collage of you and your lover will fill the gaps of your distance in a very comfortable way.
Gather your pictures growing, from childhood until the present. It's very important to remember who you are, where you've been, and what you've been through in order to fully understand who you are now. And what greater way to remember than to go back to the times when you were little and things weren't as complicated as they are now. Looking at your baby photos will definitely bring a smile to your face. Seeing how you gradually grew into the person you are today gives you a wider look at how you become to be the person you are today. It may make you miss the way things were before, but it will surely also make you want to look forward to what the future holds.
Having a collage of your childhood turned into a photo blanket is like your gift to yourself. It's something that you should keep and maybe pass on to your future child. Besides, when your parents see that blanket, they would probably tear up while smiling, seeing how much you valued your childhood. It's always great to look back to your roots; to remember how things were, especially when you've reached certain heights and milestones in your life. Now, that's the real trip down to memory lane.
These are just but examples of how your photo blankets would turn out if you want to use a collage of photos. You have the freedom to choose whether or not to use a single or multiple photos for your blankets. Always remember to be proud of whatever photo you come up with. It's your design, after all.
