You've heard the term 'light as a feather'. Down filled blankets are very lightweight. This gives you a wonderfully sublime feeling when you want to be warm but not smashed or squashed by a heavy blanket. When you want to take a quick nap, just cover up with a down throw blanket and you can snuggle in it's wonderful warmth without the weight you would feel with heavy blankets or quilts.
An existing blanket can be upcycled and still be a meaningful gift. A plain blanket is a good foundation for colorful embroidery and appliques. A favorite quote can be sewn onto the blanket in fancy script. A talented artist can paint an original piece of art on the blanket using acrylic paints. An old patchwork quilt can be repaired by sewing new patches over torn or faded ones. Covering worn patches with fabric in contemporary colors makes the whole quilt look new, especially if the crafter is careful to maintain the original shape of the pattern. She might want to combine personalization techniques by painting small pictures on some of the patches. She could also embroider secret messages on them.
