With so many choices of our one-of-a-kind, colourful wedding gift blankets, I get it: it’s hard to choose! You want them to love it, as if they’ve chosen it themselves.
Well, there’s a blanket for everyone and everyone loves a blanket, so you can’t go too wrong… but, here are a few thoughts on choosing the right throw as a gift:
- If you know a favorite color (or a disliked color), let that guide your choice. Wedding colours can be a helpful hint, or some existing home decor. Seeing a Pinterest board might help with an idea of a couple’s own home style.
- Don’t choose a color or pattern that is tooo wild… you may love it, but will they?
- If in doubt, you can also choose a gift card and let them decide!
There are a zillion blankets in the world and numerous categories & styles to choose from. Some blankets, unless specifically requested, might not make an appropriate wedding gift (a weighted blanket, or the fleecy wolf throw I received for my wedding).
But, there are loads of beautiful options for choosing an appropriate blanket to gift for a wedding. Go for something that's versatile and cozy, but also has a bit of a special touch.
Weight & size: The safest bet is to go for a medium-weight throw blanket because it's flexible for cuddling up on the couch or adding a stylish touch to the newlyweds' home décor. Bed-sized blankets or quilts should be left to the couple’s choice.
Materials: Aim for something soft and durable like a high-quality cotton or a soft wool that spells out a little luxury without being too over the top. Colors and patterns are worth considering too – neutral throws are a safe bet since they blend well with any style, but if you know the couple's taste, a pop of color or a unique design (like all of our kantha throws) can make your gift memorable on the daily.
In a nutshell, an appropriate wedding blanket is one that brings a mix of comfort, style, and a hint of the personal – a warm, useful, thoughtful gift for their new life together.
Choosing a wedding gift blanket for a couple who seems to have it all is about thinking outside the box and focusing on uniqueness and sentiment. A one-of-a-kind kantha throw with a meaningful backstory is more special than an everyday, mass-market blanket, and has been beloved by hundreds of newlyweds!
First, consider what makes the couple unique. Do they love adventures? Our classic throw blanket (above) doubles as a picnic blanket or the perfect travel throw to fit their lifestyle. Are they all about movie nights? A cozy, large kantha throw is perfect for snuggling during movie nights in.
Next, it’s the story behind the item that makes an already beautiful blanket extraordinary. Our throws support women artisans who have started their own new life, and this blanket is literally making it happen!
Materials matter too — high-quality, reliable 100% cotton feels soft and heirloom. If they like the rarity of handcrafted or limited edition pieces, our blankets are for them!
Finally, remember the presentation counts. Have the blanket beautifully wrapped and share a card about why this wedding gift is just for them. The idea is to give the couple a thoughtful gift blanket that feels like it’s made just for them, something they maybe wouldn’t buy for themselves but will surely cherish.
You’re in the right place! We’ve sold tens of thousands of one-of-a-kind blankets — the majority as gifts, many as wedding gifts, all of them beloved, appreciated, and importantly: used!
Everyone wants their wedding gift to be enjoyed and made use of; dignify’s multipurpose, versatile blankets come in innumerable colors & patterns (as well as neutrals), a wedding gift as unique as the couple you’re celebrating!
Figuring out how much to spend on a wedding gift blanket? There’s no hard rule, but it’s all about striking a balance between: a thoughtful, quality gift; what is available; and your budget.
We’ve observed that many people purchase our kantha throw blankets at the $100 price point as a wedding gift. For special relationships or as a group gift, perhaps go for a large throw that is around $200. For casual acquaintances or co-workers, you may be able to spend $50 & still get a lovely blanket without breaking the bank.
Remember, it's not just about the price tag; it’s the thoughtfulness & careful choice behind the blanket that’ll make it a gift hit with the happy couple!
It is unsettling to imagine the churn of consumer goods whose discards are damaging the planet, and blankets (as well as wedding gifts) may be a big culprit! One of the features of dignify’s giftable blankets is that they are made with 100% repurposed cotton cloth.
There’s something special about giving a gift that says, “I care about your future together—and the future of the world we live in.” If you feel compelled about post-consumer waste, and/or the couple is eco-savvy, then a gift blanket that is both environmentally kind AND stylish is the way to go. Big on coziness (and quality, and fair trade practices, and beauty), low on footprint.
