Commemorate Your Beloved Pet with Comforting Pet Memorials


Losing a pet can be devastating, but commemorating your beloved pet with a pet memorial can help ease the pain by giving you a chance to remember your furry friend long after they’ve gone.

Remember your furry friend long after they’ve gone with one of our Personalized Pet Memorials, like the customer favorite “In Loving Memory” Memorial Pet Stone. The tasteful garden stone can be laser engraved with your pet’s name and memorial years below your choice of a pet graphic. Your graphic choices include a paw print, dog bone, cat, fish, bunny, hamster, horse or turtle. Place your Pet Memorial Stone in your pet’s favorite place in the yard, as an accent piece for the garden or near your walkway so you can remember them every day.

The porcelain ornament can be personalized with your favorite photo of the little guy or girl, along with any two lines of personalization. You can choose to include your pet’s name and memorial years, a few words about a fond memory or any message you’d like.

Their spirit will live on because each year when it’s time to decorate the Christmas tree, you’ll be able to look back and remember all of your favorite family memories that you shared together.

Both of these gifts can feature any precious photo, your pet’s name and memorial years. Additionally, the Canvas Print comes with three lovely memorial verses to choose from and the option of a black, grey or tan background.

Display your canvas or picture frame in the place your family gathers most, so you can feel the spirit of your family pet with you each and every day.

We hope these Personalized Pet Memorial Gifts will help you, your family and friends find comfort during this difficult time and we hope they help you keep the spirit of your beloved family pet with you forever.

dogpillowblog 300x300 Our Fans Asked & We Answered: Introducing our Popular New Gift!We couldn’t believe all of the buzz that our fans were creating after we introduced our new Definition of My Dog Personalized Pillow to our Facebook and Pinterest Fans a couple weeks ago.

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, and we’re here to tell you that your requests have been answered!

catpillow 150x150 Our Fans Asked & We Answered: Introducing our Popular New Gift!We’d like to introduce our TWO new pillow designs: The Definition of My Cat Personalized Pillow and the Definition of Our Family Personalized Pillow!

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!

familypillowblog 150x150 Our Fans Asked & We Answered: Introducing our Popular New Gift!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 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!

Everyone’s Irish on St. Pat’s Day!


Here in Chicago, St. Patrick’s Day is serious cause for celebration!  Every year, the Chicago River is dyed a lovely shade of green, and a grand parade is held downtown. The city has a large Irish-American population, but you don’t need to be Irish to enjoy the festivities… a love for green beer is enough!

While the holiday is really to honor St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, the day has become more popular as a time to socialize with family and friends.

Irish or not, join in the celebration this year!  Deck out your home in shamrocks. Wear green to work. Bring your kids to the local parade. Enjoy a pint with your neighbor.  Whatever your plans, we have the personalized gear to show your Irish pride.  From the young to the young at heart, we have personalized St. Pat’s apparel and party supplies to make your neighbors “green” with envy! For the Wee Ones, select our charming personalized Shamrock Initial Shirt, shown below.  And your “Irish Rover” will be the luckiest dog in town, when you tie on our personalized Dog Bandana!

Slainte Everyone!  (An Irish drinking toast which translates to “health!”)

Get the Party Started!


My daughter turns 7 later this month, and all she can think about are her birthday party plans!  Of course, she faces the usual dilemma of the invitation list.  “I don’t want him at the party,” she comments about a boy in her class. “He’s just weird!”  And then the question of where to host the party.  While she would prefer a celebration at our home, I’m not brave enough to have 20 small kids smashing frosting into my area rugs!

Once we finalize a location and a list, the rest is simple, thanks to!  We offer a wide variety of party goods, all personalized with your child’s name, for a special touch. Everything from party invitations and thank you notes, to candy bar wrappers and even party banners – all printed with your party details!  Sure to make your celebration a huge success!

But what theme? Decisions, decisions.  Ladybug? Polka dots? Cupcakes?  With the wide selection we offer, the choices are endless!

And I love our new personalized cupcake wrappers – it’s easier and more fun to serve individual cupcakes versus a sheet cake.  And now you can add personalization or even your child’s photo on each wrapper.  My daughter will be thrilled to hand these out to her party goers, especially with her smiling face on each one!
