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!
Whether it’s a cookie exchange, “Ugly Christmas Sweater Party,” or a nice family get-together – holiday parties are underway!
One of the most important rules of party etiquette is to never arrive at a party empty handed. And instead of bringing a boring bottle of wine like everyone else, we thought we’d offer some personalized hostess gift ideas to help you impress your hosts and to show him and/or her that you truly appreciate being welcomed into their home!
PersonalizationMall.com has an enormous selection of beautiful Home and Entertaining Gifts that make wonderful hostess gifts, but we here at PMall’s A Personal Touch blog thought we’d point out a few favorites in different price ranges to help you with your Christmas shopping (and budget)!
If you were lucky enough to have been invited to several Christmas parties this holiday season, the Holiday Cheer© Personalized Wine Tags are the perfect gift for you to personalize! They come in a set of 24 and since they are priced at only $9.95, you’ll be able to afford personalizing a set for each of your hostesses without going broke! Instead of asking guests to remember which wine charm was assigned to them when they first walked in (which can be hard to do after 2 glasses of eggnog), your hostess will be able to hand out the wine tags you personalized which have a space for guests to write their own name!
With the guests’ names written on the tags, they not only prevent people from misplacing their drinks, they also work as a subtle name tag and ice breaker for the guests who may not know each other! Your hostess will be so touched that you went out of your way to personalize a special gift just for them, and because you helped make their job a little easier! If you’re interested in this unique hostess gift, make sure you check out the rest of our Holiday Wine Tags, too!
If you’re looking for a hostess gift that’s in the $20-$30 range, the personalized Santa Apron is another great option!
Your hostess will love the festive Santa apron because she’ll be able to protect her fabulous party wear while still looking cute! We will embroider any name you choose on the apron’s plush white trim for just $29.95! The apron is made of 100% cotton (Machine wash and dry – yay!), and is accented with real buttons and appliqued belt!
She’ll think of you every Christmas when she gets to pull it out to host her annual party, or for when she makes her Christmas cookies!
Some of you may be having a problem just looking for a gift that your hostess doesn’t already have. Well don’t worry … you’re in luck!
One of our most popular and unique gifts is our You Name It© Bamboo Cutting Board which retails for only $31.95! If she’s one of those women who have all the professional and latest kitchen gadgets she’ll love this personalized cutting board! It is a professional-quality board that’s handcrafted of pressed bamboo with a natural hand rubbed olive oil finish. Since bamboo absorbs very little moisture, does not shrink or swell and is actually harder than most hard woods, it makes the best cutting board material!
We artfully laser-engrave the top and bottom of the board with any 2-line personalization you choose for a signature touch! You can write a sweet message like, “Seasoned with love,” or if she has a sassy streak you could choose something fun like, “I always cook with wine; sometimes I even put it in the food!” Either way, the personalized cutting board is sure to be her new favorite kitchen accessory when you add your own special message. And if you aren’t comfortable writing your own message at the bottom, check out all the rest of our Personalized Cutting Boards. We have other cutting boards that can be engraved with just her monogram, with a cute design at the bottom or you can even have one personalized with a vegetable design at the bottom! Kitchen gifts don’t get much more cool and unique as a personalized cutting board!
Personalized gifts like the three we mentioned above are the best gifts to give because the person receiving them is always touched to know you made something just for them … and it doesn’t hurt that they are unique and something they’ll actually use!
So go against the norm this year and instead of giving a bottle of wine like everyone else, personalize a gift from PersonalizationMall.com and really show the hostess of your holiday party how thankful you are to be celebrating this wonderful time of year with them! Personalize any of our gifts and you’ll be sure to get an invitation to next year’s party, too!
