Before we get started on ideas for enjoying those beautiful fall colors around your home, we thought we’d share an awesome fall recipe that we saw on Pinterest. Everyone knows that the two big flavors of the fall season are apples and pumpkins … that’s why we suggest drinking a nice warm apple cider while you enjoy this Peekaboo Pumpkin Pound Cake (at left) that looks almost too pretty to eat (Click the link to be directed to SheKnows.com for the full recipe)!
The combination of pumpkin bread and pound cake would be delicious enough, but this recipe also includes a brown butter pecan icing that’s out of this world! One slice of this tasty treat is sure to give you a boost of energy to help you stay warm during the crisp fall air.
Though it may be hard to admit after seeing this recipe, there is more to fall than just pumpkin flavoring. For us, it’s all about the warm, rich colors that the fall season brings! Our favorite thing to do during this time of year is to see all of the leaves change into deep shades of red and orange and fall off the trees. We love the colors of fall so much, we’ve come up with some great Fall Decorations that will help you enjoy those beautiful colors around your home, too!
The Autumn Hues Monogram Personalized Garden Flag, one of our customers’ favorite fall gifts, has a design filled with leaves, acorns, pine and berries featured in vibrant colors. This enchanting piece artfully displays any single initial, along with any name or address you choose, to warmly welcome others to hearth and home! The design is printed on a removable flag so you can replace it with other designs throughout the year, as desired. You can personalize the flag alone to be interchanged for just $19.95 (Shop during our Fall Favorites sale now through Sunday to personalize the flag for just $14.95), or add our optional garden flag stand, which is sold separately, for $11.95. After you’ve acquired the flag stand, you can have fun personalizing other flag designs to interchange for all of the holidays, seasons or for upcoming special occasions like birthdays, graduations or other milestones! Browse through all of our designs in our Personalized Garden Flag Store. For those of you who love the Autumn Hues design as much as we do, be sure to check out our personalized doormat and yard stake that also feature the design.
If you love the fall leaves, but don’t want them tracked into your house from your family and friends’ dirty shoes, the Happy Autumn Personalized Doormat is perfect for you! The doormat features an elegant design of leaves in rich brown and orange colors and serves as an elegant accent piece to create an inviting welcome for friends and family this fall season, indoors or outdoors. We’ll custom personalize your doormat with any title and any family name or first names that you choose – all for just $22.95 (Act fast and you can personalize this doormat for only $17.20 during our Fall Favorites Sale now through Sunday)! It will look lovely on your front porch or if you’d like to enjoy the warm fall colors inside your home, place the doormat by the fireplace. It will add a personal touch to the room and provide a safe place to store the fire wood. You’ll be able to enjoy the personalized doormat while you pick up a good book, snuggle up on the couch and get warm and cozy next to the fire!
Another great way to welcome friends and family to your home this fall is to personalize the Autumn Greetings Personalized Yard Stake and Magnet for you home. Our exclusive design features a border of falling leaves in rich, warm tones with a delicate leaf background. It’s sure to provide a distinctive finish to your home while attractively displaying your home address or family name. Personalize the magnet with the yard stake for $32.95 or the magnet alone for $15.95 (now only $24.70 and $11.95, respectively when you shop before our Fall Favorites Sale ends Sunday). Once you have the yard stake, you can interchange the magnet with a new design whenever you’d like. Check out all of the different designs we offer in our Personalized Yard Stake Store.

We have a wide selection of Personalized Lunch Totes designed for teens and pre-teens and Personalized Lunch Bags that feature cute designs for younger kids in grade school but since the teens and pre-teens may be too old for “cute” lunches, we thought we’d focus today’s tips on the younger kids’ lunches.
The best part about personalizing our adorable Personalized Lunch Bags is that for every bag purchased, $1.00 goes to the charity No Kid Hungry. Every dollar that’s donated helps the No Kid Hungry campaign start or improve school breakfast programs, recruit and expand summer meals sites and teach families how to shop for and cook healthy meals on a limited budget. Since the summer of 2011, No Kid Hungry efforts have helped bring more than 34 million additional meals to kids who need them and they continue to engage the public to make ending childhood hunger a national priority.
Now that you know all about the No Kid Hungry campaign, lets look at these cute lunch ideas! It’s easy to see why the Butterfly Embroidered Lunch Bag (at left) is one of our customers’ favorites. The bright and colorful bag features an adorable butterfly design that can be personalized with any name right on the front so her delicious lunch won’t be mistaken as anyone else’s. It is fully insulated to keep food both warm and cold and has two compartments for storing extra goodies. Moms especially love all of these bags because they’re made of a durable and washable material that makes clean-up nice and easy! If your little girl loves butterflies this lunch bag is perfect for her and the only thing that would make it more perfect is if you filled her new personalized lunch bag with this cute butterfly sandwich (right) that we saw on Pinterest! All you have to do is make her favorite sandwich and use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to create the butterfly’s wings. Add a carrot for the body and raisons for the eyes and you’re done!
If you have a little boy at home, the Dino Embroidered Lunch Bag is the best way to go. We’ll embroider your son’s name on the front of the bag, right next to the dinosaur foot prints! And if your son is going to have a dinosaur lunch bag, then you should give him a dinosaur sandwich! This dinosaur sandwich is probably the coolest one we saw on Pinterest. Once you’ve used a dinosaur cookie cutter to make the shape of the sandwich, break off the tips of their chips and stick them on the dinosaurs back to create edible spikes! Your little guy will have a blast showing all of his friends the cool lunch his mom made!
Owls are the hot new trend and if your little girl is up on the latest fashion, she’ll love the Sweet Owl Embroidered Lunch Bag (at left). Just like the other bags, we will embroider her name on the front of the bag, next to the pink and yellow flower design.
The owl’s big eyes are easy to imitate for your little one’s lunch (see the photo example at right). Just add two slices of cucumber and two raisons to the top of the sandwich, cut out a carrot for the nose and use a knife to create the wings. You can use the leftover cucumber to form cute flowers or add pretzel sticks to create a tree!
Last but not least we have the Ladybug Embroidered Lunch Bag, which your little “lovebug” is sure to love! Once you’ve added her name to the front of the bag, you can fill it with her favorite sandwich that you will turn “inside out” so it becomes a ladybug! Build her favorite sandwich and cut around the bread so it takes a circular shape. Then take the cheese out from between the two slices of bread and place it on top. Cut little circles out of the cheese or use swiss cheese and you’ll have formed the perfect ladybug wings!
We hope you enjoyed all of these fun lunch tips! We’d love to hear any tips you may have or we’d love to see any of your own personal fun lunch creations! Post them in the comment section below or send them to email@example.com.
Be sure to check out our Back to School shop and remember that when you personalize these lunch bags you won’t just be putting a huge smile on your child’s face, you’ll also be helping put food on the table for children all over the nation!
This fun, new pillow has everyone talking! Our fans love that the pillow can be personalized in 1 of 4 colors and that it also comes with your choice of 12 dog graphics and can be personalized to include “definitions” that best describe their dog.
While tons of PMall fans were falling in love with our new design, (which happens to make a great gift for Pet Lovers), a couple of our fans made the same request – they loved the design, but they wanted a cat version!
Well we want you to know that our fans’ suggestions and opinions are very important to us here at PersonalizationMall.com, and we’re here to tell you that your requests have been answered!
Both of the new pillows come with the same color options: black, cranberry, navy or sage and can be personalized with your pet cat or family’s name and pronunciation. The cat pillow comes with 12 cute cat graphics to choose from, while the family pillow features 10 new graphics – each one more unique than the last so you’re sure to find a graphic that fits everyone’s personal style or taste!
All three pillows are priced at $28.95 and make great gifts for friends or to keep in your own home. It looks as though the “definition” section of the pillow is what our fans are having the most fun with. It seems to be the main reason that everyone is going crazy over these new pillows! Our fans are having a blast coming up with the words or phrases to use in each of their 3 definitions slots.
We’ve seen people use sweet words in their definitions, such as “loyal.” “kind,” or “loving,” while we’ve seen people use more colorful words to describe their family or pet’s strong personality, including definitions like “sassy,” “ankle biter,” or “puuur-fect!”
Everyone seems to be having fun creating their own pillow and we have YOU, the PersonalizationMall.com fans, to thank for it!
So give yourselves a pat on the back – you helped us create one of our most popular new personalized gifts! Thanks again and enjoy the fruits of your labor!

PMall.com’s Personalized Graduation Gifts Store has an entire Graduation Invitations & Party Accessories Department that’s full of great designs that come in every color you can imagine. The Refined Graduate Personalized Graduation Invitations are one of our favorite designs because you not only get to share the graduate’s senior photo, you also can personalize it with 3 additional photos of your choosing.

That way you can continue to swap out different garden flags for different holidays, celebrations and upcoming seasons.
Tip No. 3. You’ll find lots of decorations and party favors in our Graduation Party Accessories Department, but our most popular gift is the Class Of Personalized Photo Banner. The banner is a great way to decorate any inside or outside space for the party and it also doubles as a great guest book! Leave out a couple of Sharpie markers and have the graduate’s family and friends sign their names, write a message, or share an inspirational quote on the banner. Your graduate will love having a keepsake with notes from all their loved ones. It will be something they can look back on years from now and treasure forever.
Tip No. 4. It isn’t a real party unless there’s dessert! We came across these Graduation Dessert Pops (at right) on Pinterest and thought they were a great idea right away! Not only do they save you time from passing out and cleaning up a bunch of cake plates, napkins and forks, they’re easier for everyone to eat, too! With high school graduation parties especially, there are bound to be friends and family who will have to attend more than one graduation party the same day as yours. Instead of missing out on cake because they have to leave early for another graduation party, your guests will love being able to take a cake pop with them whenever they need to leave because they can enjoy it on their way to the next party! Plus everyone will love them because they’re just so darn cute!

These calendar note pads come in different sizes, colors and patterns and include colorful weekly schedules that make it fun to organize any busy schedule! They’re perfect for teachers who have lots of lesson plans, after school activities, and meetings to plan throughout the week.
