It’s almost time to shake your shamrocks!

smores3photopic1 St. Patricks Day Celebration Tips Your Kids Will Love!St. Patrick’s Day is coming up and whether you’re Irish or not, you and your kids will love our ideas for how to celebrate this fun holiday!

Since St. Patrick’s Day is on a Sunday this year, we thought it would be fun to spend the day together making festive treats for your kids to bring in to school the next day.

We think these Leprechaun Hat S’mores that we saw on Pinterest are the perfect dessert to help you and your family celebrate the holiday (click the link to be directed to the Hostess With The Mostess Blog for the recipe). 

We love how they’re whimsical and bite-sized – perfect for the kiddies. And since they’re so easy to make, you can turn it into a family project that even the little ones can help with.

There’s nothing like spending quality time together with your family on a holiday … especially when the outcome includes delicious desserts!

They’ll have the biggest smiles on their faces when they see that you customized the fun shamrock design on a t-shirt, sweatshirt or baby bib with their name and they’ll have a blast showing off their St. Patrick’s Day gear to all their friends!

Have them wear their new gear to the St. Patrick’s Day parade for a great photo opportunity, as well! While this design is our most popular, you can also check out the Lil’ Shamrock Gifts Department in our St. Patrick’s Day Gifts Store to see all of the adorable design options that we offer (we even have apparel for your dog!).

No matter which personalization you decide on you’re sure to spread cheer to all your family and friends – they’ll love it so much they may even do a little jig!

For those of you who are Irish (or even if you’re not Irish) and want to proudly display your heritage on St. Patrick’s Day and throughout the entire year, you may be interested in our Irish Home Gifts Department. Browse through all of our slate plaques, picture frames, garden flags, barware, afghans, stationary gifts and more that feature an array of different Irish design themes.

Express Your Love With Cookies This Valentine’s Day!

cookiebox Express Your Love With Cookies This Valentines Day!The only thing better than giving your loved one a personalized gift this Valentine’s Day is giving them a personalized gift with a personalized treat inside of it!

We instantly fell in love with the personalized cookie idea after we caught a glimpse of this photo (at left) on Pinterest - we just can’t believe we never thought of it ourselves! As you can see, the idea is to decorate one large cookie that says “I love you more than …” and have it laying on top of a dozen or so cookies that are each personalized with an example.

There are endless possibilities that you can work with when you’re decorating the cookies for your loved one, but one thing’s for sure – we know the perfect way to send or present them this Valentine’s Day … gifttin 300x300 Express Your Love With Cookies This Valentines Day!in our Sealed With A Smooch© Personalized Gift Tin! This adorable tin can be personalized with any 3-line message along with any 1 line of text at the bottom. For $26.95 you can personalize the gift tin so that it is filled with Hershey Kisses, or you can personalize the tin itself for just $19.95.

With the postcard-themed design, this tin is the perfect gift to send to your long-distance love any day of the year. We also love the idea of sending this tin to your boyfriend or husband at work on Valentine’s Day. Women are always having flowers, teddy bears, and other gifts delivered to them at work or at home on Valentine’s Day – and we think it’s about time that there was a non-feminine, romantic gift that was acceptable to send to your man. Men have been publicly expressing their love on this romantic holiday forever and now we have the perfect gift to help you return the favor. While having flowers or teddy bears delivered to his office may embarrass him, receiving delicious cookies in a sweet custom gift tin is sure to be the highlight of his day! We’re sure he’ll not only love the homemade treats, he’ll be proud to show off his wife or girlfriend’s baking skills to all of his coworkers, too!

stainedglass 150x150 Express Your Love With Cookies This Valentines Day!If you’re worried about your cookie-decorating skills or if your Valentine prefers chocolate to sugar cookies we also have some other treat ideas to share with you! Thanks to the How To Nest For Less Blog, we found a great recipe for Stained Glass Heart Cookies! These cookies look beautiful and all you have to do is take a heart-shaped cookie cutter to a sugar cookie and fill in the space with pieces of crushed Jolly Rancher candy. After baking you’ll have a delicious and colorful cookie to give to your Valentine! Pinterest Tip: As we were browsing through all of the great Valentine’s Day dessert ideas on Pinterest we saw how some people had used two different colors of Jolly Ranchers to give their cookies a swirl or tie-dye look!

bars2 150x150 Express Your Love With Cookies This Valentines Day!If your loved one is a chocaholic you should check out The Gunny Sack Blog’s recipe for White Chocolate M&M’s Valentine’s Day Cookie Bars. The recipe is super easy because the crust is actually made from a cake mix. The recipe also calls for white chocolate chips and Valentine’s Day M&M’s – we love how the M&Ms turn the bars pink and red! If these bars don’t have enough chocolate for your valentine, we suggest heading over to PMall.com’s Valentine’s Day Gifts Store where you’ll find chocolate fondue sets, candy jars filled with Hershey Kisses and more!

Do you have a special Valentine’s Day treat that would also look great in our personalized gift tin? We’d love to hear it! Post your recipe or thoughts in a comment below or send them to us at social@pmall.com.

 

Side Dishes That Steal The Show Contest Winner Announced!

apron1 300x300 Side Dishes That Steal The Show Contest Winner Announced!Congratulations to Rhonda J Elfstrand - the winner of PMall.com’s Side Dishes That Steal The Show Recipe Contest!

Rhonda submitted her recipe for the tasty and popular Strawberry Pretzel Salad which turned out to be our favorite!

Here is the winning recipe:

“Mix 2 cups of crushed pretzels, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and 1/2 cup of melted butter and then press into the bottom of 9×13 pan. Bake for 10 minutes at 400 degrees and allow the crust to cool completely before making the middle and top layers. Then beat 8 ounces of cream cheese and 1 cup of sugar until smooth. Fold in 8 ounces of Cool Whip until it is all incorporated. Spread the mixture evenly (beware the loose crumbs of the crust) on the cooled crust. For the top layer sprinkle 6 ounces of stawberry Jello on 2 cups of near boiling water into a large bowl and stir well. Carefully add 10-16 ounces of frozen strawberries and stir until Jello is slightly thickened (the frozen strawberries do a “quick set” of the Jello). Pour the mixture evenly over the middle layer, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until needed – at least two hours.”

This side dish has always been one of our favorites and we were so thankful that Rhonda shared it with all of us!

For submitting the winning recipe, Rhonda has won the Give Thanks To The Cook Personalized Apron and Potholder!

Thank you to all of our fans who submitted their favorite side dish recipes! Keep checking back here for the latest news and contests from PersonalizationMall.com!
