Customized Blankets and Throws Make Great Gifts

Are you looking for a gift for a special occasion? On this page I will review two of the special blankets that can be customized on Zazzle to make your gift extra special.

Zazzle has two different types of blankets available to be customized by you or you may choose one that is already made by the many Zazzle artists.


  • The first type of blanket available is a soft and cozy polyester fleece blanket.  It comes in 3 different sizes (30x40-50x60-60x80).  This blanket is machine washable.
  • The second type is a beautiful woven throw blanket.  It is made of a combination of 50% cotton and 50% polyester.  It is 54x38 inches in size.
Shown below are samples of each of the blankets from my Zazzle shops.

Customized Blanket Ideas

There are so many different ways you can customize your blankets to make them a special gift.  Here are a few suggestions.
  • A graduation gift- Add photos from their high school years to make this a special memento.  This will be a great blanket to take to college.
  • Mothers Day- Add photos of children or grandchildren.  Use text to add a special message.
  • Travel Memory- Add photos from a special trip.
  • Graduation gift for athlete- Add special photos from sporting events
  • Wedding Gift- Add a Monogram and perhaps the engagement photo of the couple
  • Anniversary- Add photos from special moments
  • Hobby enthusiast- add photos from their favorite hobby or pastime.  The lighthouse blanket above is a good example.
  • Gardener- Take photos of their garden and add it on the blanket

  1. These blankets are really fabulous! Thank you for being them to my attention so I could create some of my own blankets and throws. I also appreciate you featuring the throws I created. It is really fun to work on Zazzle, but even more fun to give a specially designed gift to someone we love.

  2. Fleece blankets are my favorite to keep on or near my sofa because there are winter evenings (like last night, in fact), even here in the South, where my living room feels chilled and a lightweight blanket over my legs is perfect. The idea of having one's favorite photographs on a personalized blanket is fantastic. And I love your list of suggestions for gift giving.

  4. OOO - found some new blankets to toss over my comfortable reading chair. Animals and nature make a charming way to add decor accents and useful snuggle blankets as well. Thanks for the listings.
