The adorable mischievous monkey is capturing the hearts of a whole new generation and PMall.com is here to help you throw the perfect Curious George birthday party that your little ones will love!
Thanks to this incredible theme cake we found on Pinterest and our new line of Curious George® Personalized Gifts, we were inspired to put together this party theme and share some ideas for party accessories, birthday gifts and some cute party tricks to help you plan a successful party!
Whether the party is for your baby who loves watching the Curious George cartoons or for your older child who likes to read the Curious George books – we’ve got great ideas that Curious George fans of all ages will love!
Our Curious George® Personalized Invitations feature the title “Calling All Curious Monkeys” and can be personalized with your child’s age and six lines of text which can include all of the important details including the name, date, time and location of the celebration and any other optional details you choose! These cute cards are sold in sets of 24 and include coordinating crisp, white envelopes for mailing.
Once the special day finally arrives, decorate your home or party location with the Curious George® Personalized Party Banner so you can continue the party theme and let guests know exactly where to go for the party! The banner can be personalized with their age and name and is made from heavy duty vinyl so it can be used whether it’s an indoor or outdoor party!
Outside-of-the-gift-box Party Tip: The banner can also be used as a unique guest book! Leave out a permanent marker and have guests sign their names and leave messages for the Birthday Boy or Girl. It makes a great keepsake that they’ll love looking back at for years to come!
Another great way to keep the party theme alive is to incorporate George’s friend The Man With The Yellow Hat into the place settings like they did in this photo (at right) that we came across on Pinterest.
These place settings are easy to put together, won’t cost you anything extra (since you’ll already need plates and cups for the party) and are perfect for the Curious George theme! After you’ve purchased yellow cups and plates, take the yellow cups and tape or glue a line of black construction paper around the top of the cup. If you’d like, you can even write down each guests name on the black “belt” so they know where their cup is at all times! Flip the cup over and place it in the center of the plate and that’s it – you have the yellow hat!
As for the food, prepare their favorite meal (after all, it is their birthday!), but we also suggest incorporating bananas. This is a great way to stick to the theme while also offering your guests a healthy snack! Either place one banana at each of the place settings or hang a bunch and use as a centerpiece for your table and have guests take them as they please!
When it comes time for your little one to open their birthday presents, make sure you’ve wrapped up one of our Curious George® Gifts, such as a personalized sweatshirt, pillowcase, growth chart, picture frame and much more!
Personalize a Curious George® Poster for each of the kids to take home and hang up in their rooms! You get to choose from 4 different Curious George designs (George riding a bike, playing on his ball, flying a kite or hanging out in his room with toys) and personalize the posters with each of the guests’ names in 1 of 3 sizes! They will have had so much fun at the party and love the personalized touch to their goodie bag so much they won’t want to leave!
And there you have it – the perfect Curious George Birthday Party!
Don’t forget to use proper party etiquette and thank your guests – the Curious George® Personalized Thank You Cards would be perfect! If you have any tips or ideas for throwing a Curious George Birthday Party we’d love to hear them so please be sure to comment below.
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!
Summer is officially here and before you know it, it’ll be time to drop the kids off at summer camp! Whether it’s a daily program for younger children or an overnight camp for kids who are a little older, PMall.com has some great Personalized Camp Gifts that will help you prepare them for their summer fun!
The first day of camp can be nerve-racking for kids of all ages. Younger kids may be shy and nervous about leaving Mom while older kids attending an overnight camp may have anxiety about sleeping somewhere other than home. In order to ease their fears, personalize the Photo Collage Water Bottle with 5 photos of your family for only $20.95 and let your child know that whenever they feel homesick all they have to do is look at their water bottle and remember that Mom and Dad are thinking of them!
With an attached carabiner that they can snap onto their backpacks, a pop-off lid with a cover that keeps the drinking spout clean, and a screw-off lid that can be used to add ice on the hot days, you won’t have to worry about them losing their water bottle or getting dehydrated!
Another great item that will come in handy at camp is one of PMall.com’s Personalized Beach Towels! You can personalize a towel with just your child’s name or you can pick one of our fun colorful designs!
The Go Fish!© Embroidered Beach Towels will be a hit with younger kids because they come in 4 different colors and can be personalized with their name in ”curly” or “kids” lettering plus they can pick out their favorite ”fishy” graphic (options include a girl fish, boy fish, dolphin and octopus) for just $32.95!
Older kids may prefer our Embroidered Polka Dot Beach Towels which are reversible and feature a convenient loop sewn on the edge for easy hanging. The cute polka dot design comes in 4 different color combinations and can be personalized with their name.
These beautiful towels usually sell for $44.95 however, as of right now they’re on sale for only $33.70!
With all the swimming they’ll be doing at camp, they’ll be thankful their towel is personalized so it’s easy to find when it’s time to get out of the pool!
Another great item you’ll want to add to your sleep-away camp checklist is the My Slumber Party© Signature Pillowcase! Even if your daughter was homesick and didn’t like camp at first, by the end of the program she is sure to be asking you if she can stay longer because she won’t want to part with her new best friends – and that’s where the cute pillowcase comes in handy! For just $18.95, the adorable “Slumber Party” design can be personalized with her name and comes with a permanent marker so all her camp friends can sign it and write her little notes like a yearbook! Throughout camp she can write down her favorite activities and have her friends write down their phone numbers and email addresses so when she’s home from camp and misses them, she can always look at her pillowcase and remember all the fun times she had!
Speaking of keeping in touch, don’t forget to personalize our adorable Custom Camp Note Cards! They come in 4 different designs, like the cute S’more News© theme, and they are the perfect stationary for your kids to use when they write home to tell you what they’re doing and how much fun their having (after all, Moms can get homesick for their kids, too!). They can also become pen pals and use the stationary to write letters and keep in touch with their new camp friends throughout the school year!
Even moms can use the note cards – if your kids are going to a daily camp, you can write a little note on the personalized camp cards and sneak them into your children’s lunches for a cute way to let them know that you’re thinking of them!
These camp checklist items are sure to not only help your child make a smooth transition into their new camp, but they will help improve their camp experiences, too!
Check out all our great Personalized Camp Gifts and let us know if you have any items that you’d like to add to our Camp Checklist. We’d love to hear your ideas about ways to help make a child’s time at camp more fun and enjoyable in the comment section below!
Don’t give Dad just any ol’ picture frame this Father’s Day – make it special by creating a personalized frame just for him!
There are photo frames that are perfect for dads with all kinds of hobbies such as, fishing, golf, hunting and even Rock N’ Roll! But today I wanted to share an outside-the-gift-box idea on how to personalize PMall’s unique Loving Them Collage© Frame so that it’s tailored specifically for your Dad (or husband if you’re helping your little ones)!
The collage frame can be personalized to say “I” or “We” love Dad, Daddy, Papa, Grandpa or any other name you’d like for just $39.95. The message will be cut out on a white matte board so that you can uniquely display your favorite family photos! But since we like to think outside the gift box here at A Personal Touch, I have a creative way for you to fill your frame so that it’s truly one-of-a-kind … after all, Dad deserves the best!
Instead of having the kids pose for staged photos to display in the frame, take individual pictures of each kid holding up a sign that says what they love most about their dad like the photo we found on Pinterest (at right).
Have your kids sit down and think really hard about what they love most about their dad. It could be because he watches cartoons with them Saturday mornings, or helps them with their homework or any fun thing your little ones can dream up. Then write down their answers on individual chalk boards, white boards or posters and have each child smile for a photo while holding up their sign!
The result is a beautiful frame personalized with all the cute little things that your children love most about their father. Your little ones will love being able to actually help create a Father’s Day Gift instead of just going to the store plus their Dad will love the personal touch his kids left on his gift!
If you’re short on photos and need help filling out the extra letters in the frame, another great outside-of-the-gift-box idea is to display your children’s colorful artwork like the little girl is doing in another photo we found on Pinterest (at left)!
Dad is sure to love this thoughtful gift and will have fun proudly displaying it at home or at work so he can show it off to all his coworkers!
Hurry over to PMall’s Father’s Day Gifts Store now so you can place your order and have it in time to wish Dad the best Father’s Day ever!
What some people don’t realize about PersonalizationMall.com‘s wide selection of personalized gifts is that they offer more than meets the eye!
That’s why A Personal Touch is here to help offer some unique and alternative uses for our personalized gifts with “Think Outside The Gift Box” posts!
Today I’d like to show you a great way to use the Bridesmaid© Personalized Photo Frame as a tool to accomplish a more unique, intimate and welcoming atmosphere for your bridal shower.
This elegant frame is the perfect bridal party gift for your bridesmaids because the design features a collage of cute “girly” terms like, “Girls Night,” “Laughter,” “Martini,” “Style,” “Friendship,” and comes with the choice of 7 color options so you can personalize the frame to match your wedding colors! The frame costs only $24.95 (great for brides on a budget!), and becomes even more memorable when you add your own personal 2-line message and wedding date to showcase the special bond you share.
Now if you’re a bargain hunter like me then you’re in luck because I have an outside-the-gift-box idea for these personalized frames that will help you get 2 or 3 uses for the price of 1! Not only can you give these frames as bridal party gifts, you can also use them to create a “Meet the Maids” table that you can feature at your bridal shower and wedding reception!
I immediately loved the “Meet the Maids” idea when I first saw the Pinterest Photo you see at left, and after reading Cherry Blossom Events’ “Meet The Maids” post I knew that the only thing this great idea was missing was PMall.com’s Personalized Photo Frames!
The “Meet the Maids” idea works as a fun ice breaker at your bridal shower and is a great way for your guests to meet your bridal party. I don’t know about you, but I’m always curious about how the bridesmaids and groomsmen came to know the bride and groom and with a “Meet the Maids” table, you can share these sweet stories with your guests and make them feel more included before the big day!
All you have to do is create a personalized frame for each of your bridesmaids and fill them with a mini “profile” that helps your guests get to know them a little better. The mini bios can include anything you can think of, however I recommend at least sharing how you and your bridesmaid met, how long you have been friends, and some of your favorite shared memories. Be sure to include a small photo of your bridesmaid or one of the both of you so your guests can easily recognize them and don’t forget to personalize an additional frame that features the words “Meet the Maids” to finish off the display.
Once the shower is over you can gift the frames to your bridesmaids or create frames and bios for a “Meet the Men” display and then feature both near the guest book at your wedding ceremony or by the gifts table at your wedding reception. That way you can give the frames as gifts after the wedding and everyone who may have missed out on the shower will still be filled in with all the bridal party details!
I hope you enjoyed my out-of-the-gift-box idea for your personalized frame! I’d love to hear about the alternative uses you have for any of PMall.com’s personalized gifts! Please share your ideas by commenting below or by emailing me at email@example.com.
