Your kids may be headed back to school soon, but they’re not the only ones who need to be prepared!
That’s why we put together some great parent tips that will help get you organized and prepare you for your kids’ first day back to school and every day after that, too!
That’s why we suggest personalizing your very own “From the Mom of…” Notepad (at left) complete with all of your kids’ names plus your contact information, including your name, cell phone number and email address.
These cute notepads are sure to come in handy the next time you need to write a quick note for the babysitter, teacher, coach or even another parent you’re trying to schedule a play date with!
Think of it like your own personal mommy or daddy business card – it’s sure to save you a ton of time and stress whether you have one child or a dozen!
Another way to reduce stress as you’re preparing for the new school year is to update your own planner or home calendar with the entire school calendar, including all after-school activities your children may have.
You’ll be happy to have everyone’s schedule all in one spot that you can refer to throughout the year (especially parents who have children in different schools). However, in order to prevent you from feeling overwhelmed, we suggest personalizing our “Simply Organized” Calendar Pad which will help you keep your entire family’s schedule organized on a week-to-week basis.
Your calendar will be much more manageable and much less intimidating so you’ll be more likely to stick to it (we also offer Personalized Calendar Pads that your kids can use to help keep their individual schedules organized, too)!
The best way to fight that back-to-school stress is to be at the top of your game, by making sure you’ve started the day off right with your morning coffee! Head over to our Personalized Coffee Mug Department and have fun picking out a new back-to-school mug or travel tumbler design that you can personalize with your favorite photos, colors and message!
The back-to-school stress and morning carpool will be much more manageable when you’re facing it with a warm cup of coffee in your hand or cup holder!
Tip No. 1. First thing’s first. If you’re throwing a graduation party you need to send out invitations! PMall.com’s Personalized Graduation Gifts Store has an entire Graduation Invitations & Party Accessories Department that’s full of great designs that come in every color you can imagine. The Refined Graduate Personalized Graduation Invitations are one of our favorite designs because you not only get to share the graduate’s senior photo, you also can personalize it with 3 additional photos of your choosing. This gives you the opportunity to use 3 photos of the graduate growing up giving all the guests a cute visual story of their journey to graduation! You can even personalize matching Refined Graduate Thank You Cards so your graduate can thank all of his or her family and friends for their lovely gifts!
Tip No. 2. On the day of the celebration you’ll want to make sure people know where the party is located, which is why you’ll want to personalize the School Spirit Photo Garden Flag and place it proudly on your front lawn! Our all-weather, double-sided flag will be custom personalized with their school name, class rank, year, and any sports or titles with special meanings plus you get to choose 2 colors from 8 different color options, upload any photo and add any 2-line message to appear above the photo for a personalized touch. As an added bonus, this garden flag is removable and can be interchanged with any of our other Personalized Garden Flag Designs. That way you can continue to swap out different garden flags for different holidays, celebrations and upcoming seasons.
Tip No. 3. You’ll find lots of decorations and party favors in our Graduation Party Accessories Department, but our most popular gift is the Class Of Personalized Photo Banner. The banner is a great way to decorate any inside or outside space for the party and it also doubles as a great guest book! Leave out a couple of Sharpie markers and have the graduate’s family and friends sign their names, write a message, or share an inspirational quote on the banner. Your graduate will love having a keepsake with notes from all their loved ones. It will be something they can look back on years from now and treasure forever.
Tip No. 4. It isn’t a real party unless there’s dessert! We came across these Graduation Dessert Pops (at right) on Pinterest and thought they were a great idea right away! Not only do they save you time from passing out and cleaning up a bunch of cake plates, napkins and forks, they’re easier for everyone to eat, too! With high school graduation parties especially, there are bound to be friends and family who will have to attend more than one graduation party the same day as yours. Instead of missing out on cake because they have to leave early for another graduation party, your guests will love being able to take a cake pop with them whenever they need to leave because they can enjoy it on their way to the next party! Plus everyone will love them because they’re just so darn cute! If you like the idea of a portable dessert, you should also check out our Way To Go Grad Personalized Candy Bar Wrappers or our You Picture It Personalized Photo Cupcake Wrappers.
Tip No. 5. Last but not least, you need a gift for the grad! The School Spirit Personalized Photo Frame is our No. 1 best-selling graduation gift and it’s easy to see why. Our exclusive School Spirit design features an artistic splash of any 2 school colors and can be personalized with their school name, class rank, year, and any sports, inside jokes or titles with special meanings! So it’s not only a great gift idea for the grad, it’s also the perfect graduation gift high school seniors can give to their friends who are also graduating. They can personalize it with words the stand for their inside jokes or incredible moments they shared together for the past 4 years.
And there you have it – 5 quick and easy tips for throwing a graduation party! Make sure you check out our Personalized Graduation Gifts Store for all of the above gifts and more. We have great gift ideas for graduates of all ages!

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!
