Last year we shared some Cute & Clever Christmas Card Photos with you in a blog post to help inspire your family’s Christmas card photo.
Since PMall.com’s Personalized Christmas Card Sale is going on now and because we received such a great, positive response from our readers after last year’s post, we thought this would be a great time to share some more Christmas card photo inspiration with all our fans!
Some of our favorite photo ideas have a funny theme behind them, such as this cute photo of the kids goofing around (photo at left).
We love the idea of playing up the fact that the holiday season can turn into a crazy and busy time for everyone.
Your family and friends will be able to relate and will love your sense of humor.
Your family’s Christmas cards will be sure to get a smile and/or a laugh out of everyone!
It’s the fun photos like the kids with duct tape above and the photo of the acrobatic family at right (all of which we found on Pinterest), that really help to spread Christmas cheer.
They’re eye-catching and are sure to stand out from the dozens of stock holiday cards that your family and friends will be receiving from other people this year.
Have fun and get creative with photos – and don’t be afraid to include the whole family – it doesn’t have to just be the kids!
If you’d rather go for a cute Christmas photo instead of a funny one, don’t worry – we have some ideas for you, too!
The photo (below at left) of the siblings blowing snow together is adorable and makes a beautiful Christmas card photo!
It’s a cute, cheap and easy photo to coordinate and execute and the kids will have fun taking the photos, as well. You could try using real snow once it arrives, but we have a feeling that the photo would turn out much better if you use a fake, glittery snow substitute that you could find at any store that sells Christmas decorations. It may require a little clean up afterward but it will totally be worth it!
Once you’ve taken the photos and picked out your favorites, head over to PMall.com’s Personalized Christmas Card Store and check out all the great designs available in our Photo Cards and/or Photo Postcard Departments. With our wide selection of design themes you’ll be able to find the perfect card design to match your family photo. You’ll be able to upload your photo(s) and customize your card to your liking in just a few quick and easy steps.
Once you think you’ve finished your family’s Christmas card you can actually preview it before you purchase! That’s right, you’ll actually get to see how it will look before you order it so you can still go back and make any changes you’d like before placing the order!
Once you’ve finished personalizing your Christmas Cards, personalize a set of Personalized Return Address Labels that match your card design or check out our Personalized Self-Inking Return Address Stampers. They’ll save you plenty of time and money when you’re addressing your cards!
If you like the photo examples we found and included in this post, be sure to check out our Christmas Card Ideas Board on our Pinterest Profile, where we’ve been non-stop pinning every cute and clever photo idea we see!

Recently one of PMall.com’s fans shared a story on our Facebook Fan Page. Her name is Aprille and her story was so touching we knew that we had to share it will all of the rest of our fans (please continue reading for the link to Aprille’s full blog post below).
Aprille, who is a Military Wife and Mother, has started her own family tradition by creating at least one new PMall.com Personalized Photo Ornament each Christmas.
She remembers her first ornament fondly as it was the first Christmas she spent with her husband.
Then there are the ornaments she personalized with the words “Almost Together” to capture the heartbreaking Christmas that she and her son had to celebrate without their husband and father because he was deployed.
Last year she decided that her “Almost Together” ornament needed a sequel so she personalized a new ornament that featured a beautiful family photo and the words, “Together Forever” to celebrate the Christmas they shared as a family.
She was thrilled to be able to serendipitously capture that moment and turn that into another ornament that she will always treasure.
We are so thankful to Aprille for sharing her story and the photos of all her ornaments and we are honored that we are able to play a small role in her beautiful new Christmas tradition!
Check out Aprille’s full story, ”Our Christmas Ornament Tradition” from her Beautiful In His Time Blog, by clicking the previous link. When you get to her blog you’ll be able to see photos of all the ornaments she has personalized and you’ll be able to hear the touching story straight from her!
We’d like to say Thank You again to Aprille for sharing her story and if any other PMall fans out there have stories about any of the gifts they’ve personalized from PMall.com we’d love to hear them! Email your stories to firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Unless you’re a college student, that is. While most of us are already feeling the Christmas spirit and have started our shopping, decorated our Christmas trees, or began baking Christmas cookies, etc., there are a bunch of college students out there who are so wrapped up in studying for finals and completing semester projects that they’re missing out on all the fun. That’s why we wanted to offer some great gift suggestions for parents of college students who would like to bring Christmas to the college dorms! There’s nothing better than receiving a package when you’re away at school and we have just the things to help bring a smile to your student’s face during this stressful time.
PMall.com’s Personalized Christmas Gifts Store has all sorts of great home decor that would look great in the dorms!
Personalized door banners like the Christmas Nice List (far left) and the Merry Christmas designs (left) are the perfect decorations for the dorm because they can be hung on the door and won’t take up any space in their already-cramped living quarters.
You can personalize the Nice List design with all the names of his or her friends who live on the floor and your student can hang a marker so their friends can write and leave messages that they’ll treasure year after year. The Merry Christmas design, which features an adorable snowman, can be personalized with your student and their roommate’s names or personalize it with the new club, fraternity or sorority they recently joined!
Help make your student’s all-nighter tolerable by including one of our Personalized Coffee Mugs in your Christmas care package. We have several designs to fit everyone’s taste but we recommend sticking with the Christmas theme and personalizing the Ghiradelli® Hot Cocoa Personalized Bistro Mug because not only will they receive a merry and bright new mug, they’ll love getting their own packet of double chocolate gourmet hot cocoa to warm their heart and their senses! If they’re going to be up all night studying, they may as well be doing it while enjoying delicious hot cocoa that will help give them a welcome boost at all hours of the night!
While PMall.com’s Christmas Gifts Store is full of great gift ideas to send to your son or daughter in the dorms, we thought we’d leave you with a great gift idea that will help you save money, too!
PMall.com’s Personalized Doormats are always a favorite among our customers and our Personalized Christmas Doormats have some of the cutest designs out there! Our doormats, like the adorable Welcome To Our Workshop design which features little elf feet, not only spread the Christmas cheer, they can also help you save some money by giving your student and their friends a place to wipe their boots and hopefully helping you get back some of your security deposit at the end of the school year! After all, taking all those trips to their classes, the library and the cafeteria can get boots pretty muddy. With a cute personalize doormat, you can prevent them from tracking all of that winter slush into their dorm room and ruining the carpet.
It’s time to start putting together a care package for your son or daughter in the dorms! Head over to our Personalized Christmas Gifts Store and have fun picking out what’s best for your student. Think of how nice it will be for them to take a break from studying and get a little taste of home this holiday season … you’ll be a hero!
This time of year feels like the calm just before the storm … it’s that little bit of time before the hectic Christmas shopping season begins. That’s why we wanted to remind you that now is a great time to start searching for, planning and taking pictures for the photo calendars you’ll be creating as Christmas gifts this year.
PMall.com’s Personalized Calendar Department is full of great design options for you to choose from so you can find the theme that best suits your personal taste.
Check out the Seasons Change Photo Wall Calendar (at left), which is always a customer favorite or take a look at our other photo calendars, including our newest design, the Picture Perfect Photo Wall Calendar.
Once you’ve selected your favorite calendar design it’s time to start uploading your photos! We always think the calendars turn out best when the theme of the photos compliments the month it will be shown with and since our calendars require at least 12 photos (some designs let you personalize each month with more than 1 photo), it may take some time to find the pictures that will fit perfectly with each month.
That’s why we thought we’d give you a heads up so you could start planning out your calendar now before the crazy Christmas season begins!
If you’re unsure of which photos to use for your calendar, take a look at the following photos we thought we’d share to help you get inspired:
A shot of the kids in their red, white and blue outfits watching the 4th of July parade would be the perfect photo for July:
Goofy faces can make the cutest photos. This silly photo of the kids on their first day of school is great to use for August or September:
It’s not too late to take a photo of your kids playing in the leaves, which would work well for October or November:
Find the photo you took of the kids making a snowman or snow angels from last winter and pair it with January:
We hope we’ve been able to inspire you to create your own personalized photo calendar now while you have time before the Christmas rush! If you have any photo ideas for certain months please share them in the comment section!
You wonder how they came up with that creative family photo (like the photo at left), where they found the beautiful card or how they had the time to stuff each card with their photo and include a personalized greeting.
Forget about being jealous this year because we’ve got some cute family photo inspiration to share with you plus when you purchase cards from PMall.com’s Personalized Christmas Cards Store we make it so quick and easy you’ll wonder how you ever sent Christmas cards without us!
One of our most popular designs, the Our Family Gatefold Photo Christmas Card (at right), is a great way to feature one large family photo and your personalized holiday greeting. However we also offer several designs that feature a collage of photos in creative ways, so decide on how many photos you’d like to have and then select the best card.
Now it’s time to take a family photo that will stand out from the rest!
One of the cute trends going around this year is having strings of Christmas lights included in your family photo in some creative way. These are a few of our favorite examples:
There are so many adorable Christmas baby photos out there and we could never pick just one … but we did narrow it down to four of the cutest we’ve seen:
