Closely related to the previous point, keep in mind how thick the blanket has to be. If you want to use a picnic blanket on more uneven or harder underground then the fabric of the blanket needs to be thicker and will often have a couple more layers. The same applies for other types of waterproof blankets, especially if you`re looking at waterproof camping blankets.
You need to know how big the blanket has to be. A picnic with the whole family and kids will have to be bigger than a blanket you`re bringing outdoors with you to read a book by yourself. This matters for any other situation where you can have different sizes (for example, camping and sleeping alone or with a partner, a blanket for your pet,...). Just like the thickness of a blanket, the size will have an impact on its weight, space and how easy it is to fold.
Now you might ignore the cost of renting, just to keep away the chill. But do take this into consideration, renting an airplane blanket just twice will put you out for the same money as buying a reasonable quality new fleece travel blanket, and that is not taking into consideration the much better quality of a purchased travel blanket.
