Or maybe you just want a cozy new blanket to cuddle up with on those cold nights- whatever the reason, we know you will love your one-of-a-kind, unique keepsake.

Graduation is a big occasion for students, their families, and friends. It's a time to celebrate the past and look forward to the future. Graduation gifts are a great way to celebrate, show your graduate you're proud of them, and express your proudness for all they've accomplished. There are plenty of great graduation gifts available, but the best ones are the ones that your graduate will actually use and enjoy- like a T-Shirt blanket.  Some of the shirts you could include are those collected from;

  • Sports Jerseys- Hockey, Soccer, Basketball to name but a few
  • Clubs 
  • Performances or plays that they have been part of
  • Concert/ favourite band shirts
  • Race Shirts/ charity fundraisers etc.
  • Sororities or fraternities

This heartfelt gift will forever remind them of their days at school and will be a great conversational piece for years to come. 

If you have an artist or band that you have been to see live so many times that you have collected their merchandise, we bet you can't pick your favorite! When it comes to concert merch, there's pretty much no choice but to collect everything! But, with a concert T-shirt quilt, you can put them all in one place, and show off your fandom with style. Rock, pop, country- whatever if your jam a blanket made entirely from the shirts you've collected from all of the concerts you've attended will bring back heaps of great memories!

One of the coolest parts about running races is getting your “loot” at the end. This typically includes a race T-shirt. If you have a bunch of those sitting around, we say you should turn them into quilts! Race quilts are great because they allow you to display your love for running without taking up a ton of space, and they make great gifts for runners in your life!

They also don't have to be limited to running shirts, most sports involve jerseys or team shirts of some kind, another super popular is hockey, lacrosse, baseball, and basketball jerseys!

Everyone will have to say goodbye to someone they love at some point in their lives. Some live long lives full of memories, while others are taken far too soon; in either case, it's difficult to imagine living without them. When you finally get the opportunity to look through their belongings, the last thing you want to do is donate or throw them away. They have so much significance. They evoke wonderful recollections, and the most difficult thing is that they retain the scent of your departed loved one. What do you do when you can't keep hold of them indefinitely? Make a bereavement quilt out of them. It will provide you with a sense of comfort that can only be felt, not explained. We vow at RE-Vive the TEE to treat the clothing with the utmost respect and nothing less, and we promise you will be so glad you made the painful and difficult decision to transform them into something new so their memories will continue on.


With summer comes travel. Are you traveling anywhere this summer? If so, don’t forget to get a T-shirt to remind you of the amazing destinations you are lucky to visit and experience.
