Top 6 Housewarming Photo Blanket Gift Ideas

Setting up a new home is stressful. You need to get the right furniture, the right curtain, and the right everything. But once that home is perfect, the homemaker can rest and the people invited to the house warming party begin to worry. Housewarming gifts are an ideal way to capture the spirit of newness and help residents feel comfortable in an unfamiliar place.

What is the perfect housewarming gift? What can you possibly give to a new homeowner that they might not already have invested in, a plant, a painting, or a lamp? The list is endless and there is no right answer. However, there is one idea that will definitely be a hit; a personalized photo blanket!

A photo blanket or a wall hanging or even an afghan throw is a thoughtful gift that will make sure that the receivers smile. They will feel good and warm every time they see that art piece. It will most definitely make people smile if nothing else. These blankets are also long-lasting as the image does not fade, it is woven in with skill and love which will make it last a lifetime.  Pick the right base first and then move onto picking the right image or the right message. You can design it with patterns on the borders as well and make it colorful so that it adds some life to the wall as well. You can go in for a single photo or a photo collage with a lot of happy memories. If you cannot find pictures then you can find a nice heartfelt quote or put the names of the family members with an outline of a home. If they have a pet, you can put the outline of the pet on a pillow cover too. The options and ideas are so many. Our skilled weavers will take one week to make the blanket and it will take another week to reach you so you will have to make sure to plan it right.
