Blankets and Throw Gift Ideas: Types Of Blankets

Shopping for blankets and throws gift ideas? Here are a few things you need to keep in mind.

  • Blankets and throws are not the same thing. A blanket is a piece of bedding. A throw, on the other hand, is considered a home decor item.
  • Size matters. You don't want to select one that is either too small or too big. So before you go shopping, know whether your bed is a twin, twin XL, full/queen, king or California king-sized bed.
  • Not all blankets are machine washable. Some blankets are dry clean only. If you prefer not to make a trip to the dry cleaners, make sure the tag says that you can toss it in the washing machine.
