With PMall’s Christmas in July Sale going on this week I was looking through all of the beautiful Personalized Christmas Ornaments and started to realize just how special some of these ornaments can be!
There are a few unique PMall designs that are extra special because they help you capture a specific moment in time so in the future you’ll be able to use the ornaments to remember some of your favorite Christmas moments!
The My Wish List© Personalized Ornament, which you can personalize with any name, year and 4 items, can act like a mini scrapbook that helps you preserve some of your favorite holiday memories without all the mess! In the future you’ll look back and be thankful that you personalized the My Wish List design for each of your children year after year, because you’ll be able to reminisce about what toys and gifts they loved most each Christmas while they were growing up!
This adorable ornament can help you look back and remember some of their funniest and sweetest memories like when your son was going through his superhero phase and only wanted Spider-Man action figures and clothes (by the way, if your son is going through that phase now, you should check out our brand new line of Personalized Spider-Man Gifts!), or when your daughter asked Santa for a little brother or sister.
The ornament is usually only $12.95 but thanks to the Christmas in July Sale it’s marked down to just $10.35 from now through Sunday! Start your new tradition now and you’ll love having the opportunity to share all the fun stories with your kids when they’re older (especially when your daughter is older and fighting with her new younger sibling you can pull out the ornament and remind her that this is what wanted! )
PMall’s exclusive designs not only help you capture your kids’ precious moments, but your whole family’s favorite moments, too! With the Our Family© Engraved Message Ornament you can create your own mini scrapbook that can display an entire year’s worth of family events. You can have this elegant glass ornament laser engraved with up to 9 lines of personalization – those 9 lines can include your family’s name, address or your favorite family highlights of the past year, such as your vacation spots, activities, inside jokes and anything else you can think of! This beautiful ornament is usually $14.95 but is currently 70% off and can be personalized for only $4.48! Now that’s a deal you can’t pass up! Just think you’ll be able to start a new tradition where every year when you’re decorating the tree, you’ll be able to look back as a family and remember each year’s fun vacations and important accomplishments and help decide as a family what you’d like to include on the following year’s ornament!
But you don’t need to have kids to create one of these “scrapbook ornaments.”
The Our Life Together© Personalized Couple’s Ornament is the perfect way for newlyweds to remember the details of their wedding while also starting their own ornament collection as a married couple! The stunning glass ornament is usually $14.95 but is on sale for only $4.48 until Sunday and can be engraved with the couple’s names and up to 9 lines of personalization. If you’re personalizing it as a wedding keepsake you can include the ceremony’s location, date, the first song you danced to, the flowers you used and more.
However, I think this design is a perfect way to celebrate your anniversary year after year – after all, who says you have to save this beautiful gifts for Christmas!? Each year you can personalize it with all your firsts (vacation, purchasing a home, adopting a pet, etc.), triumphs (promotions at work, buying a new car, getting pregnant) and struggles that you went through and overcame together (losing a job or loved one) so you can look back and be proud of what you have made it through together as a team.
Whether it’s for your anniversary, your kids or your entire family, you are sure to find the perfect PMall Personalized Christmas Ornament for you! So put down the glue stick, close the scrapbooks and stow the memory boxes … forget about all of the fuss and head over to PMall to create a one-of-a-kind keepsake before the Christmas in July Sale ends Sunday, July 8th!
It may only take you a couple minutes to create your gorgeous personalized ornament, but you’re sure to enjoy your little time capsule for many years to come!
Congratulations to the A Personal Touch Blog’s “My Favorite Christmas Cookie” Recipe Contest winner, Jackie Stillion!
Jackie submitted a delicious recipe she used for her own Christmas Cookie Exchange with friends for Chocolate Gooey Cookies!
Here is her submission for all of you to enjoy:
- 1 (8-ounce) brick cream cheese, room temperature
- 1 stick butter, at room temperature
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 (18-ounce) box moist chocolate cake mix
- Confectioners’ sugar, for dusting
In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Beat in the egg. Then beat in the vanilla extract. Beat in the cake mix. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours to firm up so that you can roll the batter into balls. Preheat oven to 350°F. Roll the chilled batter into tablespoon sized balls and then roll them in confectioner’s sugar. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake 12 minutes. The cookies will remain soft and gooey. Cool completely and sprinkle with more confectioners’ sugar, if desired. Makes about 2 dozen cookies!
“I made these cookies for a Cookie Exchange my friends and I did over Christmas. I had to email the recipe to the host and now I am forwarding to you! They turned out YUMMY and were a major hit! Have a great New Year! ~ Jackie Stillion”
