Quilt Gift-Selecting Tips
Hi Alice, it can be challenging to buy quilts when you don't know the bed size but you have other options if you like the idea of giving something quilted.
Start by making a list of some of your family members hobbies and interests, then look at lap quilts, also called throws. These smaller versions of quilts are perfect to curl up in and can nicely add color to a room by throwing them over the back of a chair or sofa. They are usually 50x60-inches and also can be used as a wall hanging.
If you are not sure of hobbies, do your family members have pets? Dog and cat throws have been customer favorites for gifts for all sorts of occasions, including birthdays, anniversaries and Christmas.
Still not sure? Gift certificates are always a convenient choice, then add a card that says you and the gift recipient can have fun shopping online after the holidays for something that you both will like.
