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!

Whether you made a New Year’s resolution to get organized or are just looking for a few ways to modify your normal routine, A Personal Touch has a couple tips to help you get a better handle on you and your family’s busy lives!
One of the great benefits of personalized gifts is organization. When you’re able to put someone’s name on something, it can help keep things in their right place.
For example, PersonalizationMall.com can help you keep each family member’s schedule straight with the Family Character Collection© Magnets. For just $4.95, you can personalize a magnet with a whimsical cartoon figure that looks just like each one of your loved ones – even your pets! You can customize the magnet with their name and then choose from male or female adult, youth, or baby figures, with light or dark complexions, and you can even choose to personalize one with a cat or dog. You can use the magnets to display your child’s A+ paper, doctor appointment reminders, individual chore assignments and anything else you can think of! Your kids will get a kick out of seeing themselves as a cartoon and will look forward to checking their magnet each day for reminders or notes from Mom!
You can also keep your family organized by using the set of 3 Grocery List© Personalized Notepads. What’s great about these notepads, which are priced at just $23.95 for the set of 3, is that you can personalize each of notepads however you’d like. So if you have family members with certain food allergies or special diets that require you to go to more than one grocery store, you can personalize a different notepad for your family member with the diet restrictions or you can designate the notepads for each of the stores you’ll be shopping at. Instead of overlooking certain items on one big list in the store, you’ll have 2 shorter lists that are easier to tackle – not to mention, with separate lists you can always hand off one of the lists to a family member so you can share the shopping and be done in half the time!
If you like the grocery store notepads but are looking to be more organized at work, you’ll love the notepad set with the Dot To Dot© design! You can personalize each notepad for a different job responsibility, such as one notepad for things to go over in upcoming meetings, another notepad for your daily to-do list, and the final notepad to brainstorm or plan upcoming assignments. The Dot to Dot theme is so bright and cheery; you’ll actually have fun writing out your checklists!
The A Year To Remember© Photo Wall Calendar is another great way for you to stay on top of things at home and at work! You have the opportunity to pick 12 of your most precious photos which will be printed in full size for each month. Then you can add any 2-line message you’d like on each month so you can feature special birthdays, anniversaries or whatever is most important for you. The calendar has a writable area for daily or month to-do’s so you can leave yourself reminders and you can choose to start the calendar on any month so you don’t waste money on months that have already passed. And as an organizational bonus, we’ve included a “Dates To Remember” page so you can list all the special holidays or occasions you need to remember throughout the year. Priced at only $19.95, you finally have the opportunity to stay on top of your schedule with a personal touch. After all, a calendar is a lot more fun to plan when you’re looking at your favorite photographs!
We hope we’ve been able to offer some great tools to help you keep your New Year’s Resolution. With all these little tips, just think of how much more time you’ll have to spend with family and enjoy personal hobbies!
If you have any organizational tips you’d like to share, we’d love to hear them! Feel free to leave a comment below.
Have fun getting organized and check back here for Valentine’s Day gift ideas soon!
We love the idea of making time to better keep in touch with loved ones but know that it’s not always easy when you have a busy schedule and family or friends who live far away.
While email and text messages have helped to keep long distance friends or family members in touch with each other, we think they lack somewhat of A Personal Touch. Which is why we’d like to challenge our readers too add a personal touch to their resolution and to make time to stay in touch with family and friends by using hand-written letters!
We love the warm and fuzzy feeling you get from receiving a hand-written note, knowing that your loved one was thinking of you. The act of hand-writing a letter is becoming rare and we’d like to do something about that, so PersonalizationMall.com would like to challenge you with the “2012 Resolutions with A Personal Touch Contest!”
All you need to do is send an email with the subject line “Resolutions Contest” to firstname.lastname@example.org before midnight Wednesday, January 25th with the following information:
- The name and relation of the person you would like to keep in touch with more often in 2012.
- A brief sentence or two as to why this person is so important to you and why you’d like to keep better in touch with them.
- Your full name and email address that you’d like to be contacted at if you are selected as the winner.
The contest winner, who will be selected by the A Personal Touch staff, will win their very own set of Personally Yours© Personalized Note Cards & Envelopes that will help them get started with their resolution! The staff will be looking for the most touching entry and we will announce the winner in a post Thursday, January 26th so be sure to get your entry in before then!
We can’t wait to hear all about your loved ones and how you plan to send them love with A Personal Touch one letter at a time!
