Support Small Business This Christmas

December 23, 2021 4 min read

Looking for a unique gift this Christmas? Support a local business and buy a personal and special t-shirt blanket full of beautiful memories.


Choosing to shop with a small business instead of big corporate companies at Christmas has tons of benefits for you and business owners. After all, many small and medium-sized companies value your custom throughout the year. However, choosing to shop with them during this time is an important factor in how you view a company's product when selecting gifts.


As small business owners, we know this sector's challenges, especially in recent times. That's why we strive to support American jobs and contribute to the economy in the best way we can.


If you're considering the perfect place to buy gifts this Christmas, why not try shopping with small and local companies. There are tons of benefits to purchasing from this sector. Take a look at some of them below:

Supporting the local economy


Small businesses are an important factor in the economy. Shopping with small companies keeps your money within the country, and this supports other initiatives and American jobs. Studies suggest that buying from small and local businesses goes back into the economy and re-circulated within this area. By continuously doing this, you contribute to bettering US business owners' lives and creating more jobs in the local market.

Creating American jobs


As a small business, My T-Shirt Blanket started from humble beginnings. Our factory in Massachusetts created various American jobs to support local workers and communities. With the support of our customers, we have continued to flourish in the market. Our unique t-shirt quilts and cotton blankets have provided fair labor jobs in the US. Plus, we continue to support the economy with stable opportunities and fair pay.


Many of our team members have been with us from the beginning, and that's a testament to the pride and respect we have for each person. They bring a wealth of skills to the table – they're also excited to grow and see what the future holds.

Enhanced shopping experience


Shopping small offers a different kind of shopping experience to purchasing at the corporates. Many of our customers know the passion and expertise we have in making t-shirt blankets and patchwork quilts and enjoy the personal touch with every order. At Christmas, this is also important as it creates a personalized feel to gift-giving.


Small businesses like us always go above and beyond to create products that will last for years to come. This relationship encourages a connection between us and our customers that cannot be replicated when shopping with faceless companies.

More originality and personality


Want to give a gift that has bags of individuality and personality, then it's time to shop small. Chain stores and similar brands dominate the world, and their gifts get diluted in the mix. Independent brands and businesses like us offer something different, and we're proud of it.


This breath of fresh air gives you a variety of unique gift choices for loved ones instead of the same-old options. For example, if you're looking for a crazy quilt design, we're happy to help, or perhaps you need a king-size blanket. We've got you covered.

Adaptable to customer needs


We're always working to bring customers the best quilt options. As a small business, we can adapt to your needs in most cases with ease. Our team is always on hand to make your Christmas gifts as memorable as possible and can accommodate requests where possible. Our system for making throw blankets and t-shirt quilts is one of the finest in the industry. Plus, our skilled designers will arrange your t-shirts in the best designs to make them look amazing.

Speak to a real person


Have you ever ordered something from a big company and struggled to chat to someone on the phone if you have an issue? With small businesses, you don't have that problem. Instead, you'll be talking directly to a small team or even the owner in some cases about your order or query, and you'll get a real person every time. Another benefit of being able to talk to someone is that issues can be solved quickly. Plus, like us, many small businesses strive to work with you to create the best products every time.

Shopping small businesses online


When shopping for small and medium-sized businesses, most also have an online presence, so don’t forget to visit their website. For example, if there are no t-shirt blankets near you locally, we provide a national shipping service so you can get your blanket wherever you are in the country. All small businesses want to reach wider audiences, so don't be afraid to search online and shop directly to still get excellent service in time for Christmas.

Better for the environment


Choosing to shop with small businesses also positively impacts the wider environment. Many local and small companies are using green initiatives to cut waste and use local materials to produce goods. For example, when you buy a T-Shirt Blanket with us, our whole business plan is based around recycling old t-shirts into quilts and blankets, so there's no need to buy new ones. This method ensures unworn t-shirts don't end up in landfill, so both the company and the customer are doing their bit for the planet.

Making it personal


Gift-giving has become a commercialized fairground in recent years. However, if you're looking to make the festive season more personalized, choosing a service that offers the complete personal package is great.


At My T-Shirt Blanket, we create blankets completely unique to you and your loved ones. Our team stitches your t-shirts together to create fantastic heirlooms that will be treasured for years to come. The beauty of these designs is that the only limit is your imagination. We can work with all types of t-shirt styles and colors to create beautiful blankets that will last for many years to come. By doing this, you can create a special items that will be part of the family for a long time.
