Are you looking for the perfect gift to give your loved ones?

Something that shows you care? Something that shows you appreciate them?

A unique gift that has clearly had a lot of thought and effort put into it?

If yes, then look no further.  

Memory blankets are the perfect gift for all ages, allowing you to take cherished memories and transform them into a long-lasting heirloom that can be passed on from one generation to the next.

Still not sure if this is the right gift for your loved one?

Keep reading to discover why memory blankets make the best personalized gifts. Plus, don’t miss the great memory blanket ideas at the end of this blog which are ideal if you want to have a go at making your own blanket.

Memory blankets are versatile

Whether you are looking for an extra special Christmas gift for your partner, a housewarming gift for a friend or a memorial gift for a grieving relative, memory blankets are suitable for all occasions.

In fact, memory blankets make amazing gifts for practically and any special occasion you can think of, such as:

  • Anniversaries
  • Birthdays
  • Get well soon
  • New-born baby gifts
  • Retirement
  • Graduation
  • Bar mitzvahs
  • Engagements
  • Weddings
  • Christmas

Plus, they are suitable for all ages. You can create one for your child, your friend, your parents, siblings, even your pet if you want to!

Memory blankets are thoughtful

If you are looking for a gift that really shows you have put time and effort into thinking about what the recipient would like, then out of all the custom gifts on the market, a memory blanket comes out on top.

Think about it. Taking the time to collect t-shirts from your loved one without them noticing and then arranging for them to be made into a blanket, whether you do it yourself or not, takes a lot more effort than simply having a photograph printed onto a mug or a cushion.

Memory blankets are inexpensive

For those on a budget, this is a gift that says a lot without you having to spend too much. Whether you choose to get crafty yourself or you enlist the services of a company that creates blankets made from t-shirts, as you have the materials you need already to hand, there is very little expense needed when creating memory blankets.  

Plus, you can find lots of different memory blanket patterns online, from the most basic for beginners to more complex designs for those who are expert sewers.

Memory blankets can be customized

One of the best aspects of memory blankets is that you can personalize and customize them in any way that you wish. For example, in terms of the size, you could choose to create a small lap blanket, or if you are buying a gift for a couple, you could go super-sized and opt for a queen or king-sized blanket.

Furthermore, you can choose exactly what theme you want your blanket to have, such as one based on a particular sports team, a favorite band or activity. Or to represent a particular time in their life, such as high school or graduation.

Memory blankets are long-lasting

If you want to give your loved one a gift that is going to last a lifetime, a memory blanket can offer you this. Not only does this unique gift allow you to take memories and immortalize them, but it also provides a high quality and durable product that your loved one can enjoy for many years to come.

That being said, if you want your gift to go the distance, then you need to ensure you use the best quality fabrics for your blanket, both in terms of the garments themselves and the batting and backing that you choose.

Memory blankets are eco-friendly

If you are fed up with purchasing endless plastic toys for your kids, new clothes for a friend that will go out of fashion in a matter of months, or yet another new electronic device that will need upgrading before you know it, then you will be happy to hear that memory blankets make a great sustainable gift.

Effectively recycling old clothes into something new is the perfect way to make use of any old t-shirts that are lying under the bed or in the attic gathering dust.

Wouldn’t you rather take these previously loved but now forgotten items and transform them into something beautiful? And warm!

Can I make my own memory blanket?

Yes, you can. If you have the time and the equipment needed (you will need a sewing machine), there is no reason why you can’t try to make your own memory blanket.

To make your own memory blanket, you will need your memory fabric, whether that be t-shirts or any other item of clothing or accessory that are suitable, as well as a few other basic materials including batting, a cutting mat, an iron, thread, and some pins.

Top tips for making your own memory blanket:

  • Opt for cotton fabrics where possible
  • Steer clear of any fabric that is delicate or cannot be machine washed
  • Pre-wash all your fabrics before you get started
  • Cut your fabrics carefully and ensure the image is in the center of each square
  • Play around with the layout of your blanket before you start sewing


Whether you decide to make your own blanket or you need a little helping hand to ensure the quality of your finished product, memory blankets make the perfect gift for all your friends and family for all occasions.

If you need help transforming your loved one’s memories into a gift that will bring joy for many years to come, then get in touch with our helpful and knowledgeable team here today.

Memory blankets, the gift that keeps on giving.
