The school year is coming to an end and now is the perfect time to pick out something special for your children’s teachers to show them how much you appreciated their hard work this past year.
No matter what your budget may be, PMall.com’s Personalized Teacher Gifts Store is sure to have the perfect teacher gifts for the teachers in your life no matter what age they teach. We have designs tailor made for kindergarten teachers all the way up to college professors – after all, teachers at all levels deserve to be shown appreciation!
Based on what we’ve seen popping up on Pinterest, the new popular “thank you” gift for teachers is personalized stationary. It makes sense since teachers often find themselves writing notes for their students to take home to their parents or jotting down reminders about lesson plans.
PMall.com’s Personalized Stationary Store is full of notepads and notebooks with all sorts of beautiful colors and patterns for everyday use but we also have an entire department of Personalized Teacher Stationary that’s full of great teacher-themed stationary.
You’ll find different types of notepads, note cubes, notebooks, note cards and more; including our popular new Calendar Desk Pads (the photo at left features an example of one of our teacher-themed notepads). These calendar note pads come in different sizes, colors and patterns and include colorful weekly schedules that make it fun to organize any busy schedule! They’re perfect for teachers who have lots of lesson plans, after school activities, and meetings to plan throughout the week.
Calendar desk pads are becoming more and more popular and any teacher would love to have one, especially if it’s personalized with his or her name! So head on over to our Personalized Teacher Stationary department to pick out the perfect design for the teacher you’re shopping for and tell us what you think!
We’d love to hear from parents and teachers – which type of stationary do you prefer? Notepads, note cubes, or note cards? Let us know by commenting on this post.
Enjoy the rest of the school year!
The adorable mischievous monkey is capturing the hearts of a whole new generation and PMall.com is here to help you throw the perfect Curious George birthday party that your little ones will love!
Thanks to this incredible theme cake we found on Pinterest and our new line of Curious George® Personalized Gifts, we were inspired to put together this party theme and share some ideas for party accessories, birthday gifts and some cute party tricks to help you plan a successful party!
Whether the party is for your baby who loves watching the Curious George cartoons or for your older child who likes to read the Curious George books – we’ve got great ideas that Curious George fans of all ages will love!
Our Curious George® Personalized Invitations feature the title “Calling All Curious Monkeys” and can be personalized with your child’s age and six lines of text which can include all of the important details including the name, date, time and location of the celebration and any other optional details you choose! These cute cards are sold in sets of 24 and include coordinating crisp, white envelopes for mailing.
Once the special day finally arrives, decorate your home or party location with the Curious George® Personalized Party Banner so you can continue the party theme and let guests know exactly where to go for the party! The banner can be personalized with their age and name and is made from heavy duty vinyl so it can be used whether it’s an indoor or outdoor party!
Outside-of-the-gift-box Party Tip: The banner can also be used as a unique guest book! Leave out a permanent marker and have guests sign their names and leave messages for the Birthday Boy or Girl. It makes a great keepsake that they’ll love looking back at for years to come!
Another great way to keep the party theme alive is to incorporate George’s friend The Man With The Yellow Hat into the place settings like they did in this photo (at right) that we came across on Pinterest.
These place settings are easy to put together, won’t cost you anything extra (since you’ll already need plates and cups for the party) and are perfect for the Curious George theme! After you’ve purchased yellow cups and plates, take the yellow cups and tape or glue a line of black construction paper around the top of the cup. If you’d like, you can even write down each guests name on the black “belt” so they know where their cup is at all times! Flip the cup over and place it in the center of the plate and that’s it – you have the yellow hat!
As for the food, prepare their favorite meal (after all, it is their birthday!), but we also suggest incorporating bananas. This is a great way to stick to the theme while also offering your guests a healthy snack! Either place one banana at each of the place settings or hang a bunch and use as a centerpiece for your table and have guests take them as they please!
When it comes time for your little one to open their birthday presents, make sure you’ve wrapped up one of our Curious George® Gifts, such as a personalized sweatshirt, pillowcase, growth chart, picture frame and much more!
Personalize a Curious George® Poster for each of the kids to take home and hang up in their rooms! You get to choose from 4 different Curious George designs (George riding a bike, playing on his ball, flying a kite or hanging out in his room with toys) and personalize the posters with each of the guests’ names in 1 of 3 sizes! They will have had so much fun at the party and love the personalized touch to their goodie bag so much they won’t want to leave!
And there you have it – the perfect Curious George Birthday Party!
Don’t forget to use proper party etiquette and thank your guests – the Curious George® Personalized Thank You Cards would be perfect! If you have any tips or ideas for throwing a Curious George Birthday Party we’d love to hear them so please be sure to comment below.

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!
Don’t give Dad just any ol’ picture frame this Father’s Day – make it special by creating a personalized frame just for him!
There are photo frames that are perfect for dads with all kinds of hobbies such as, fishing, golf, hunting and even Rock N’ Roll! But today I wanted to share an outside-the-gift-box idea on how to personalize PMall’s unique Loving Them Collage© Frame so that it’s tailored specifically for your Dad (or husband if you’re helping your little ones)!
The collage frame can be personalized to say “I” or “We” love Dad, Daddy, Papa, Grandpa or any other name you’d like for just $39.95. The message will be cut out on a white matte board so that you can uniquely display your favorite family photos! But since we like to think outside the gift box here at A Personal Touch, I have a creative way for you to fill your frame so that it’s truly one-of-a-kind … after all, Dad deserves the best!
Instead of having the kids pose for staged photos to display in the frame, take individual pictures of each kid holding up a sign that says what they love most about their dad like the photo we found on Pinterest (at right).
Have your kids sit down and think really hard about what they love most about their dad. It could be because he watches cartoons with them Saturday mornings, or helps them with their homework or any fun thing your little ones can dream up. Then write down their answers on individual chalk boards, white boards or posters and have each child smile for a photo while holding up their sign!
The result is a beautiful frame personalized with all the cute little things that your children love most about their father. Your little ones will love being able to actually help create a Father’s Day Gift instead of just going to the store plus their Dad will love the personal touch his kids left on his gift!
If you’re short on photos and need help filling out the extra letters in the frame, another great outside-of-the-gift-box idea is to display your children’s colorful artwork like the little girl is doing in another photo we found on Pinterest (at left)!
Dad is sure to love this thoughtful gift and will have fun proudly displaying it at home or at work so he can show it off to all his coworkers!
Hurry over to PMall’s Father’s Day Gifts Store now so you can place your order and have it in time to wish Dad the best Father’s Day ever!
