Kids love toys. I remember being highly disappointed at Christmas when I didn’t get toys. But there are a few gifts that weren’t toys I got as gifts when I was a kid that stand out. My first guitar isn’t something I played with much, but it helped me get into music (the Beach Boys specifically). My first Lakers sweater is a piece of clothing I wore every time I watched a game until I was in my 20s. And my grandpa’s conch shell he got in Myrtle Beach is still a treasure I hold dear.

November 12th is National Blanket Day! National Blanket Day is a relatively new holiday, with a very important cause/message. National Blanket Day was created in 2015 by a homeless man, who said all he wished for during Thanksgiving was to spend time helping his homeless family. He started the trend of handing out free blankets to other homeless people, along with some hot chocolate. He also encourages others around the world to do the same thing on November 12th.

The most common question we get when someone wants to create a photo blanket is “Will photos I take on my phone be quality enough for the blanket?” The short answer is yes, most likely. Today’s phones have cameras on them that rival professional equipment. However it depends on what phone you’re using. If you’re still loving the flip phones that pre-date the iPhone, you’re not going to have the same quality photos of the more recent smartphone models. However if you’re using a smartphone and still not getting pictures you like, there are a few steps to ensure the most professional photos with your phone.
