Have you noticed as people age the harder and harder it is to find the perfect gift for them. I find this especially true with men. It is extremely hard to find my almost 89 year old grandfather something he doesn't already have and will actually use.
I suppose as you age you become less me, me, me and take things as they come. You aren't making mile long lists and requesting things left and right mostly because you already have everything you need. Even if someone happens to ask you what you want a long contemplation is needed or you say you don't need anything which isn't very helpful to the gift giver.
I think photo gifts are the perfect gift to give when you are at a loss as to what to give an older adult or even a female. Everyone loves pictures and memories of their families. Maybe they weren't able to be there to see the memories being made but they'd sure love to see pictures of it now!
Recently, I created a 50×60 fleece photo blanket on collage.com for my mother in law. She's not hard to buy for, I just thought she would LOVE pictures of her grandsons now they we live out of state and she doesn't get to see them as often as she used to. I hope I'm right!
This fleece photo blanket features a low pile plush that's super soft. It might not be as fluffy as some blankets but that low pile allows your photos to be more sharp and clear. That's very important when it comes to a photo product.
Creating my collage.com blanket online was easy. I chose the size of blanket and then went into the customization process. There you can choose everything from where to get your photos from (desktop, Facebook, ect.) to how you want your photos laid out. You can add text, pick backgrounds, add borders, put effects on photos (sepia, black & white, ect.), and most importantly you can choose from 1 to 100 photos. Yes, up to 100 photos! Amazing!! Other places have much lower photo limits and charge you for extras.
I would highly recommend the fleece photo blanket from collage.com. It's going to be a lovely gift that I'm sure will be cherished. If blankets aren't your thing collage.com offers many other photo products that I'm sure are just as great!
