While a photo blanket is a wonderful present for good times, it can also help ease a difficult trial by reminding someone you love of the people they love. Below are several situations in which photo blankets can provide a silver lining.

When Someone Moves to Hospice

Moving to hospice is an admission that life will never again be the same, and that can be very difficult. Help older family members adjust to their new surroundings with a gift that puts smiling faces right at their fingertips 24/7, and reminds them of all the support they still have.

During a Hospital Recovery

The hospital is famous for its sterile surroundings. When someone is stuck there, one of the best things you can do to speed their recovery is warm things up a bit … both literally and figuratively. A photo blanket not only helps beat the chill, it reminds the patient of all they have to look forward to.

If Someone Returns Home to Spend Their Last Days

When someone comes home with the knowledge that the next weeks or months will be their last, it is generally hard for them to settle in, even if they are in familiar surroundings. Despite the fact that they’ve left the hospital, they still have the feeling of just “passing through.” You can add to their comfort by giving them a photo blanket that combines elements of hominess with photos of beloved friends and family to help them ease back into home.

When a Child Is Sick

Nothing is more heartbreaking than a sick child. You would do anything to ease their discomfort, but sometimes the best thing you can do is provide a source of good memories. A photo blanket can showcase pictures of friends, favorite pets and family members that live far away, reminding the kid how loved they truly are.

Sure, we hope to give beautiful, meaningful gifts like photo blankets on happy occasions, but don’t confine their use to that. They can make a world of difference to someone who is suffering, so take the time to have one made today.
