Finding the right gift for my parents and in-laws can be a challenge. Their homes are already filled with the things they need and they tend to be shy about telling us the things that they want. Fortunately, over the years I’ve found there’s one type of gift that grandma and grandpa are sure to love: anything with a photo of their grandkids! BestCanvas.ca makes it incredibly easy and affordable to give gifts that they’ll appreciate and cherish.

Personalized Gifts Made Easy
We love using photos in our crafting and have made a beachy photo display jar, photo coaster with resin and more. We don’t actually print out photos nearly enough so we’re happy for the opportunity whenever it arises.
So when BestCanvas.ca reached out to collaborate on gift ideas for grandma and grandpa, we were excited to do so. When I headed to BestCanvas.ca I had in mind to order a canvas print for them. I was pleasantly surprised though to see a variety of different types of products including mugs, puzzles, face masks, cushions and even towels!

But it was the custom photo blankets that completely caught my eye. I mean, how perfect? These plush photo blankets can be displayed over the couch when not using and then cuddled up in for some extra warmth. I could totally picture our parents and in-laws cherishing these soft and thoughtful throws.
It was super simple to place the order at BestCanvas.ca: I simply uploaded the photos, selected the blanket I wanted (Premium Plush versus Fleece) and entered my shipping/payment information. I ordered two of the 60”x40” blankets – one for each set of grandparents.
It took about 3 weeks for the order to arrive, but that was unusual as it was over the busy holiday season when there were all-around postal delays.
Tip: For best success, make sure to upload the highest resolution of image that you have.
While there, I also ordered a framed print for my parents, from a rare photo we all took together this past summer. It was such a lovely memory that they’ll be able to revisit every time they see the photo.
I felt completely confident in placing the order after visiting the BestCanvas.ca TrustPilot page. There I found thousands of positive customer reviews and five-star ratings. It was so reassuring to see!
It was also great to see that this company thinks about sustainability- they use renewable energy sources at their manufacturing plant, participate in reforestation projects and use environmentally friendly inks.
Wrapping up in Cozy Memories
My daughter instantly fell in love with the plush photo blankets when they arrived. She quickly grabbed them and curled up on a chair, excited to be “cuddling up” with her cousins. She’s insisted that I order another one for her.
The Premium Plush blankets are sooo soft and truly plush. They’re lightweight, silky and warm.
I’m really impressed with the color: it is so vivid and the image detail is really crisp! The backside of the blanket is just as soft and has a lovely gray color.
I was equally happy with the quality of the framed photo. It’s actually a printed canvas laid into a frame – it looks really modern and expensive (even though it wasn’t!).
The Perfect Gift for Grandma and Grandpa
I was expecting my mother-in-law to love the gift but was surprised by my father-in-law’s reaction.
The blanket we gifted them had a photo of all ten of their grandkids from last summer. He actually cried with happiness when they opened the package! The only downside is that he’s forbidden anyone to touch it, worried that it’ll get ruined. I assured him that I can order a second one as the price was so reasonable.
