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 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!
