Our fans are great at coming up with clever ways to personalize gifts and even coming up with new ways to use our personalized gifts for a purpose we hadn’t initially intended.

ticketstubs 300x224 Check out Our Fan Photo Album for Great Personalization Ideas!For example, we had a customer share a photo of the Making Memories Personalized Photo Collage Frame that is featured on our site as a great picture frame. Well instead of personalizing the frame with their family name and filling it with photos of their loved ones, they personalized a frame for each of their favorite Chicago sports teams and filled the frame with ticket stubs from the games they’ve attended (see photo at right)! Isn’t that such a cool idea?

We Can’t Get Enough Of the Owl Trend!

babyowl 239x300 We Cant Get Enough Of the Owl Trend!Attention all new mommies and daddies: Owls are in!

That’s right – owls are the hottest new trend for all things babies and baby nurseries.

It’s pretty easy to see why they’ve become so popular … just take a look at this cute birth announcement photo we saw on Pinterest and try not to say “awww!”

Adorable, isn’t she? We don’t know if it’s the fun colors or those big, round eyes – everything about them is so cute that they just melt your heart! That’s why PMall has introduced a whole line of personalized gifts that feature an adorable owl design called “Owl About You.” We have all different types of gifts that feature this soft and sweet design and we think it’s the perfect way to decorate the new baby’s nursery!

We think you’ll love our Owl About You” 12″ x 12″ Personalized Canvas Print!

The walls are usually the best place to start when you’re decorating a room and after painting the wall a soft shade of pink, this exclusive owl art will look lovely hanging on the wall above the baby’s crib. owlcanvas 150x150 We Cant Get Enough Of the Owl Trend!Our talented artists created this exclusive design in watercolor artwork that we reproduce on a piece of canvas.

The design features an adorable owl sitting on a tree branch with a subtle background of pink with white polka dots and it can be personalized with any initial and your baby’s name. It adds a nice personal touch to the room that people will see the moment they walk in. It costs just $32.95 and comes ready to hang!

owldoorhanger 150x150 We Cant Get Enough Of the Owl Trend!Speaking of “hanging,” we added our exclusive owl design to one of the most important things every new mother and father needs to have in their home - the “Owl About You” Personalized Door Hanger! This little thing can be a life saver – just ask any parent. With this little sign, you can prevent your baby being woken from her peaceful nap. When you place the door hanger on your front door, the delivery man and your family and friends will know that they need to knock instead of using the doorbell because your little angel is taking a nap! The door hanger is crafted of durable plastic, measures 4″ x 9″, and features a convenient display hook. We customize the door hanger with any name and optional line of personalization that will appear just above the phrase “Whooo’s There” or “Sweet Dreams Little Owl” (you pick one of the two design options) – all for just $10.95!

owlpillow 150x150 We Cant Get Enough Of the Owl Trend!When your family and friends do come over to visit and see the baby, it’s a good idea to have the “Owl About You” Personalized Keepsake Pillow around. This precious pillow is a beautiful decoration all on its own but it can be used to prop up the arm of whoever is holding the baby, too! That way they can hold the baby for longer and their arm won’t start to tire! The pillow features the same exclusive owl design and can be personalized with the baby’s name and initial for $28.95. The keepsake pillow measures 14″ sq. and has a removable white poly/cotton cover and perfectly complements the other owl decorations in the room.

So what do you think about the Owl trend – are you a fan?

If so, be sure to check out all of our “Owl About You” Gifts - there are plenty more baby gifts and nursery decorations for you to add to your adorable nursery!

 

 

 

Keep the Kids Cool with a “Drive-In” Movie at Home!

drive in theater1 Keep the Kids Cool with a Drive In Movie at Home!Now that August is here, the summer heat is starting to take its toll and your kids may be looking for ways to take a break from the sun.

Luckily we just saw this photo (at left) on Pinterest and have great way for you and your family to beat the heat – by having your own “Drive-In Movie” inside your home!

The “Not Just a Housewife” blog came up with the awesome idea to turn cardboard boxes into cars and place them in front of the TV so the kids feel like they’re actually at a drive-in movie theater! It’s a great way to get the kids’ “creative juices” flowing all while escaping the summer sun and spending quality family time together!

As you can see from the blog post (click the “Not Just a Housewife” link above to be directed to the full blog post), all you have to do is take a cardboard box and have the kids decorate it to look like any type of car they’d like! The blog post suggests covering the boxes with colored or patterned duct tape so that the cardboard becomes more durable and lasts for more than one movie, but if you don’t have any colored duct tape on hand, feel free to just let the kids use crayons or markers to decorate the boxes with their own artwork. Don’t forget to attach paper plates for the car’s wheels for an extra cool effect!

Once everyone has created their own cars, place them in a straight line on the ground in front of the TV and decide what movie everyone would like to watch.

Now that you have the movie picked out there’s only one thing left to do – gather up some movie snacks!

blogpopcornbowl1 Keep the Kids Cool with a Drive In Movie at Home!Movie snacks wouldn’t be complete without popcorn, and with the Old-Fashioned Red Popcorn Bowl Set everyone can have their own bowl to hold onto in each of their “cars.” You can personalize the large bowl with your family name or any message you’d like for just $39.95 and the small bowls can be purchased individually for only $9.95 each. We love the old-fashioned look to the bowl and our Old Fashioned Four Seasoning Popcorn Party Set that you can also purchase for just $12.95. The personalized bowls are high quality so you can feel free to use them for more than popcorn on family movie nights. They can be used for all of your dining and entertaining needs, including using them as salad bowls when you’re hosting a dinner party or to serve other types of snacks when you have company.

cashbox Keep the Kids Cool with a Drive In Movie at Home!If your kids are a little older, you can also create a learning experience for them by creating a little concession stand in your kitchen.

Have them work on their handwriting and spelling by creating a poster board that shows a menu with the different types of snacks and the cost of each item. Use the My Private Stash Personalized Cash Box as the cash register and have your kids take turns being the concession stand worker.

Whoever plays the concession stand worker takes their siblings’ popcorn, candy and drink orders and using play money, will use the math skills they learned during the school year to figure out how much change they need to give back to each of their customers! You can choose a pink or blue cash box and have it personalized with any 2 lines across the top and your kids can use it for all sorts of future make-believe games or to hold their allowance. The cash boxes usually cost $24.95 but if you act fast, you can personalize them now while they’re on sale for just $18.70!

blogblankets Keep the Kids Cool with a Drive In Movie at Home!Once everyone has their snacks and the concession stand is “closed,” have everyone climb into their cars and tuck each of them in with a Personalized Sweatshirt Blanket so they can be comfy and cozy in their little “cars.” Since they’re in individual cars they probably won’t be able to share a blanket, but with our wide selection of Personalized Blankets you’ll have no problem finding the perfect design for boys and girls of all ages, no matter what their favorite hobbies or interests are. The kids will stay warm and comfortable in their cardboard boxes and the blankets can help prevent any sticky candy from falling onto your carpet (after all it’s a lot easier to throw a blanket in the wash, than it is to try and get a sugary stain out of your family room carpet)! The blankets will be great for the drive-in movie night, but your kids will also be able to use them for years to come, especially when they go on sleepovers, road trips or just when they’re sitting on the couch watching TV or doing their homework.

When everyone is ready, dim the lights and start the movie!

The homemade drive-in movie theater is a win-win for everyone. The kids are happy that they get to cool off and watch a movie and the parents are happy that the kids are using their creativity, math skills (without even realizing it) and spending quality time together. It’s not only a great way to beat the heat, it’s also a great way to make an unforgettable memory that your family will cherish forever!

If you have any ideas on ways to beat the heat this summer, feel free to share them in the comments below and make sure to visit PMall.com’s Back-to-School Store so you can get an early start to tackling those school supply lists!
