This question on the topic came in from a bride-to-be, Courtney. She wants to know if a personalized blanket makes a good gift for her parents. She writes,
“Hi Emmaline! I’m looking for a nice wedding gift to give my parents. They have been helping us out so much with wedding day plans especially during these crazy times. A friend of mine gave her parents a wedding gift blanket with a saying on it, what do you think? Do you suggest a blanket for parents that might be a nice fit? Thank you so much!”
Wedding Gift Blanket
Hi Courtney, great question! I like this idea so much, I wish I had known about it for my own wedding. A wedding blanket as a wedding gift blanket for parents is perfect in many ways:
1. A Wedding Blanket is Warm + Cozy
It is perfect this time of year! Well, any time of year, really! And really, you can never have too many blankets. This is a fact.
2. You Can Personalize a Wedding Blanket
Whether you include a nice one-liner or sweet motif, a unique saying, or simply your names and the wedding date, wedding blankets for parents are always a thoughtful gift.
3. A Blanket Makes a Functional Gift
Although any wedding gift you present to your parents is a nice idea, we especially like gifts that are totally functional. A comfy and cozy wedding throw blanket they’ll reach for on the couch to snuggle in and watch movies, warm up after a day out of apple picking, or to stay cozy and listen to Christmas music! It is a gift to have, to hold, and to stay warm if you are cold for years to come. :) (we love wedding gift blanket ideas just as much as wedding blankets for guests!)
And since it can be washed and reused, a blanket wedding gift is something they’ll enjoy for years to come.
5. Handmade Blankets Are Especially Well-Loved
If you get a blanket from a handmade shop, you can work one-on-one with the designer to customize the color, wording, and design of the blanket gift for your recipient.
If I were to buy a wedding gift blanket for my parents, I’d shop these styles at LiLinspirations (also see the website, Lil-Inspirations). Sandra is amazing to work with; the quality of her work and the passion she has for her gift blankets is clear to see! She has positive reviews and the quality of her signature wedding gift blanket is unlike any we’ve seen.
Here are some examples of personalized blanket wedding gift ideas to inspire you.
So, in conclusion, Courtney, yes, giving parents a wedding blanket makes a wonderful gift! Thanks for writing!
