The tradition of giving great quality wedding gifts is a very old one. While today's bridal shower is similar to the notion of a dowry or a collection of gifts, in old times the gifts that were given to the just married couple were intended to last a lifetime. There are many traditions that are in place to help offset the costs of a wedding or a new life for the couple, and these once came about in the form of a dowry, a hope chest, household goods or even selling dances for dollars at the wedding reception.

Do you want to know the difference between picture blankets, photo blankets and photo throws? Well, they are all the same. These three names are used to refer to the same thing, a blanket (also known as a throw blanket or throw) with your pictures or photos put on them.
There are three main types of photo throws, knitted or woven throws and fleece throws. Knitted or woven picture blankets are made by interweaving multicolored threads together to create an image.

Everyone likes getting gifts for their birthday, Christmas or wedding anniversary. Those are celebrations when gifts are expected. But sometimes the most appreciated and special gifts are the ones that are given for no particular reason and during no special time.
It is just a gift to show how much you appreciate or love someone. The more unique the gift is, the more impact it will have. When you are looking for that gift that shows how much you appreciate someone, consider giving a photo blanket.
