Recently, I was given the opportunity to review a custom blanket from collage.com. As luck would have it, my husband’s birthday was coming up, so I knew this would make a great birthday gift!
First of all, the ordering process was very easy. All you do is upload some photos, and they will arrange them on the blanket for you. If you don’t like where they end up, you can drag the photos around until you’re happy with the layout. You can go with the basic white background, or you can choose from one of their many custom backgrounds. I was amazed by all of the choices they had! In addition to being able to customize the background, you can also customize the shape on the blanket. I went with just a classic photo collage, but you can do hearts, bride and groom, the Easter bunny, a clover – just about anything you can imagine! From animals, to states, to sports, they have a little of everything!
My one word of caution would be to remember that these photos are going to be BIG on the blanket. So when you’re choosing photos, try to think of everything being much larger. Of course, the more photos you choose, the smaller they will be. I chose one of my son in his car seat. It’s very cute, but if I had put some thought into it I would have cropped it so the caution stickers in the car seat weren’t on my blanket!
That being said, I couldn’t be more pleased with how it turned out. The picture quality is clear, and the blanket is so soft and comfortable! My husband loved it, and now my daughter wants one! Shipping was faster than I thought it would be – I didn’t expect it to get here in time for my husband’s birthday, but it did!
I think this would make a great gift for a child going off to college, a couple getting married, or just about anyone! This would also make a great Father’s Day/Mother’s Day gift! Be sure to connect with them on Facebook – they often have special deals on there!
