Custom 50x60" Fleece Photo Blanket


Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own. 

While Winter is here and it's extra cold inside, we reach for a blanket or two to keep warm. Why not have a personalized blanket with the photos you love the most? That way you can smile every time you see it. Collage.com makes customizable photo blankets, printed on high quality, durable fleece that has a shorter plush, keeping the photos sharper to keep the image in tact. So you can not only have the blanket to keep warm, but you can also use it as a wall hanging! These blankets are great for gift giving!

Collage.com was easy to use, you just apply the picture(s) to the blanket and arrange how you would like. You can do a pattern collage of photo's of just one photo to take up the whole blanket how I did. You can also add any text you would like to the piece, in any color or font they have to choose from. The only thing I disliked about their site was that sometimes in using the font section, it wouldn't change the size or color as I requested it to. After toying around with it for awhile, I got it figured out and just changed it as needed. I had a really hard time trying to figure out with picture(s) I wanted to use so it was helpful to see that you can choose photos from the web, Instagram, or Tumblr, as well as your own computer. I really like that you can choose a pattern from their designs, to give your blanket something to build on. It was really fun to make!

At first I was going to use a picture of my son as a baby, standing on the beach, with the ocean as the backdrop, and a quote about our Journey through life, but I just couldn't decide if I liked it or not. It was beautiful, but I just wasn't feeling it. After wasting a ton of time trying to find the perfect fit, I decided I was going to go a completely different route and make a more "fun" blanket. So I decided to use our silly Donkey Kong mask family picture we took for our Donkey Kong Movie Night we had awhile back. I added Collage.com's Chevron background, and placed the quote "Whatever you decide to do, make sure it makes you happy." at the top. Now whenever I look at this blanket, I can smile and remember the fun we had that night, and to remember to always strive for happiness. My Collage blanket sits on our couch and is now used for all of our family moments together. The blanket itself is thinner then I thought it would be, and has a sticky-crunchy exterior to it, but after a wash it should become soft. I thought the entire blanket would have the Chevron design, but it's actually all white in the back so that was kind of a bummer for me. I wish the Chevron design was all throughout, but it's still a great blanket and it fits perfectly on our bed!


Customizing a blanket with Collage.com is the perfect way to give a warm and comforting gift to those we love. It would make a great Christmas present for those chilly days, or a Mother's Day gift displaying a mothers favorite memory. It would also make a great keepsake for your baby, or even a gift for graduation. There are so many reasons to gift a Collage.com blanket!

  4. My mom has Lewy body dementia and may need to go into a nursing home at some point. I think a blanket with all the grandkids picture on it would be a great thing for her to have.
