It doesn't matter if you're shopping for the perfect birthday present for your best friend, looking for a meaningful anniversary gift for your spouse, or even if you just want to treat yourself to a little something special.

Customized fleece photo blankets are unique, fun, and genuinely useful gifts that will put a smile on anyone's face (including your own). 

Still, you want to ensure that you find   high-quality photo blankets  that will last for years to come. In addition to doing your research when it comes to where you should buy your photo blanket, you also need to consider the design. 

This post is here to help make the process as simple as possible. 

Read on to learn how to make a picture blanket that everyone will cherish. 

1. Find the Right Company

The first thing you need to do when you're ready to start creating? 

Make sure that you find the best place to buy a photo blanket (or   any other custom gifts). 

After all, even if the design looks beautiful, you don't want it to be printed on cheap material. You also want to ensure that the blanket will be thick enough to keep the recipient warm and that you can get your money back if the blanket doesn't live up to your expectations. 

Take the time to do your research, and be sure to read online reviews from past customers when it comes to companies you're considering ordering from. 

Especially if you're in a rush, make sure you also take a look at how long it will take the company to ship your order. If you've   forgotten someone's birthday  -- or even worse, an anniversary -- you need to be certain the order will arrive on time. 

You also need to know if the blanket is machine washable so that the recipient won't have to worry about footing expensive dry cleaning bills in the future. 

Of course, the company should also give you plenty of options when it comes to design. 

Let's talk about the most important things to consider when you're designing fleece photo blankets now. 

2. Decide on Your Design

Choosing the right design is the most fun part of creating fleece photo blankets -- but it's also one of the biggest challenges. 

Especially if you're not exactly the most creative person in the world, you might consider choosing from some pre-made design templates. This way, you won't have to worry about things like backgrounds, color schemes, and photo positioning. 

But if you really want to create something extra-special, then we suggest going the completely customized route. 

Do you want to choose just one photo, or would you prefer to create a collage of several different pictures? What occasion would you like the blanket to commemorate -- a wedding, a special vacation, or a graduation, for example? 

Once you've selected the right photo, you can play around with different color options. 

To finish up the blanket, consider adding a few final touches. 

We love the idea of including a monogram on the blanket so that no one else can attempt to claim it as their own. You could also have a favorite bible verse, lines  from a treasured book, or even a special date printed on the blanket. 

If you're not sure about what kind of message should go on the blanket, ask the recipient's friends and family for a little assistance. 

3. Pick the Right Size

When you're dreaming up the perfect blanket, you also need to consider the size that you'll select. 

For example, we offer blankets in 30x40, 50x60, and 60x80 sizes. The option that you select will depend on the size of the bed or piece of furniture it's going on, and perhaps even the recipient's height. 

After all, you don't want their toes to be poking out! 

If you really want to take your gift to the next level, you may want to pick up some matching pillows. 

4. Know Where It's Going

Finally, make sure you know which room of the home or office the custom blanket will likely belong in.

This will help you to make the right choices when it comes to   color schemes. If it's going over the back of a couch, for example, make sure you know the upholstery colors, along with any patterns on nearby pillows. 

If you're getting a blanket to top off someone's bed? 

Do a little recon to figure out what color they've painted their bedroom walls. 

You want the blanket to compliment the room and serve as the perfect decor accents -- not to overwhelm it. 

If you're using patterns and bold colors, make sure they won't clash with what's already in the room. 

Where Can You Find the Best Custom Fleece Photo Blankets?

Learning how to make a picture blanket isn't as difficult as you might have feared -- and the process is much faster than most people expect it to be. 

Above all, custom fleece photo blankets make the perfect present, whether you're celebrating a special occasion or if you want to give someone you care about a gift "just because."
