Custom gifts are my favorite!
I have to say out of all the gifts I purchase for family and friends custom gifts have to be my favorite to give. Not only do I get to use my personal photos, but I also get to tell them stories that go along with the photos so they can enjoy them too. And I can honestly say I've never had anyone complain about receiving a photo gift either. I like them for myself too because it's a great way to remember events and cherish the moments displayed in the photos. I recently made a photo blanket for myself and am so excited about how awesome it looks. I used photos of my family and can now sit back and enjoy thinking of the memories from each of them while I'm all toasty warm under my super soft Sherpa blanket.
When creating a photo gift such as the Sherpa Blanket I made you get to choose not only the photos to include, but how many you want to include. I didn't choose too many photos because I wanted them to be a little bigger and stand out more. Looking back I probably would have added just a few more than I did though after seeing just how big they are on my 60" x 80" throw. I could have done up to 80 photos if I wanted, but didn't want them so small that you couldn't tell what they were without being up close. The process of creating the blanket was actually as simple as picking the photos and placing them where I wanted on the blanket layout. If you're in a hurry or don't want to spend a lot of time with photo placement you can actually have them auto arranged for you. If you like you can even add text to the blanket to further customize it or add a date if your collage is specific to a day or year. The process is pretty much the same no matter what product you order, and once you've uploaded photos once they are there for future projects.
