Ad – This post is in collaboration with My Picture.
I don’t know about you but for us, there never seem to be enough hours in the day to get things done, especially around this time of year.
Anything that can save time and make life just a bit easier has got to be a good thing and with Christmas just around the corner, we’re sharing the perfect gift for people who have everything with you.
Our new super-soft personalised blanket is the perfect gift for grandparents or, let’s face it, anyone that wants to keep warm.
The best thing about this blanket is that you don’t need any DIY skills at all to make it – all you have to do is upload a photo and all of the work is done for you.
So, how do you create a personalised photo blanket?
Well if you’re anything like us, you’ll probably have hundreds if not thousands of pictures on your phone so why not make the most of them and create something beautiful and bespoke to give to someone special? Or, let’s be real here, keep for yourself?
Now, I know that our personalised blanket doesn’t look like a photo and that’s because it isn’t!
As much as you can upload any photo to be printed onto your blanket, we decided to make ours extra special and had a drawing that our niece created for us printed onto it.
It’s always difficult to find gifts for people who have everything and for us, our parents are always particularly difficult to buy presents for. A personalised blanket with a drawing by one of their grandchildren is definitely such a special gift that I know they’d love.
Obviously, any photo would look great on a blanket, too but we love how a child’s drawing adds such a personal and arty look to the blanket.
It almost looks like you’ve bought an expensive gift item by a famous artist in a gallery or museum’s shop but it’s actually so much better, more personal and, more importantly, so much more affordable! (Especially as we’re sharing a discount code at the end of this post!)
And having your photo or drawing printed onto a blanket or anything else for that matter really couldn’t be easier. All you have to do is upload your photo at My-Picture.co.uk and select the product you want it printed onto. It really is that simple.
If, like us, you’re printing a drawing, scan it or take a picture of it with your phone and then upload it like you would a photo.
As much as a personalised blanket would be the perfect and practical gift for people who have everything, there are so many other options to choose from, too.
At My Picture, you can have your favourite photos printed not only onto things like canvases, acrylic or have them printed and framed, you can also have your photos or drawings printed onto lots of other fun things like mugs, puzzles and even duvet covers.
We tested a few different printing options and they all look stunning. The quality is amazing and we really couldn’t be happier with how they turned out.
As you can see, we also had the lovely beehive picture that our niece drew for us printed onto a mug. We also had one of our favourite snapshots of us printed onto acrylic which looks super vibrant and really makes the photo come to life.
But what about the gift that we promised?
Have you already spotted our new piece of art? We loved living in Berlin and this photo is one of the all-time favourite photos we took in the time we lived there. It’s such a fun and vibrant picture and we love how it looks over our DIY bar cart even if the rest of the space still needs sorting.
And, we’re sharing this colourful Berlin photo with you so that you can have it printed on a product of your choice at My Picture.
There are so many options to choose from at My Picture. As I mentioned, you can have your photos printed onto a myriad of products but even when it comes to having a photo framed there are lots of options from things like including a photo mount (it’s a real mount, not just a white border around the picture) to the colour of your frame.
But wait, it get’s even better!
