Blankets provide warmth at night, security capes for children, and nourishment for roaming hordes of goats. Wrap up in a personalized wonder-covering with today's Groupon: for $64, you get a custom 70"x53" photo blanket (a $129 value, shipping included) from PhotoWeavers, a family-owned textile mill that re-creates images by weaving them into the fabric, rather than printing over finished cloth.

The blanket-design process offers myriad creative options for those tired of basic fleeces and plaid throws. First, upload a photo and choose either the simple method, which produces a blanket with just the image woven into the surface, or the customizable method, which allows users to personalize the image with borders, labels, and insignias. With the latter method, customers can unleash their inner designer with themed borders depicting hobbies such as golf or fishing; insignias celebrating friends or family in uniform; or graphics celebrating holidays, birthdays, and anniversaries. For example, upload an image of the family dog chasing its tail, add a dog-themed border with tennis balls and biscuits, and insert a wildly creative, custom caption such as "dog blanket." After the image and graphic layout is submitted, a PhotoWeavers designer will weave the image into a blanket using around 8 miles of cotton thread, which is roughly equivalent to three zillion Q-tips.

Though PhotoWeavers sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.


PhotoWeavers' blankets warm with in-woven images that are higher quality than their screenprinted counterparts. Tapestry weavers in a family-owned textile mill work more than 8 miles of 100% cotton thread—the equivalent of three zillion Q-tips—into each creation. Blankets can be made using one of two methods. During the zippy, super-simple method, a blanket is born from a single image without borders, text, or other designs. In the second method, customers meld up to four pictures with custom elements to create a truer reflection of themselves than a mirror that displays human eyes as googly eyes. PhotoWeavers' looms also create tote bags, pillows, and wall hangings with the same meticulous attention to detail.

My childrens father passed away two years ago and I had a blanket made for my children for Christmas of the last picture of our childrens birthday that we were all able to attend as a family. It was everything that I hoped it would be. It will be a treasure that my children will be able to have for years to come. The quality of the blanknet is quality. I was amazed when I receive them. It brought tears to my eyes. Thank you so much for the quality product that you produced for me. It is awesome!!!
