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!

What would Valentine’s Day be without some treats from the heart!?
We hadn’t either until we saw this unique recipe from the “Made With Love, By Me” Blog, which teaches you how to bake a heart inside a cupcake!
As you can see by the picture, the inside of the cupcakes feature a bright hidden heart as soon as you cut into them. The recipe, which you can get by clicking the above link, is really easy and doesn’t require anything out of the ordinary with the exception of a heart-shaped cookie cutter.
Once you’ve cut open the cupcakes and revealed the surprise, these are the coolest treats we’ve ever seen! However, we here at A Personal Touch always believe a gift or treat is only as good as its presentation and we’re excited to say that we’ve found the perfect way to decorate these hidden Valentine’s Day treats!
PersonalizationMall.com has two different Valentine’s Day Cupcake Wrapper designs we know you’ll love!
The first of our cute Valentine’s Day wrappers are the Be My Sweet© Personalized Cupcake Wrappers, which are printed in a sweet pink and red design and finished with delightful, scalloped edging and feature any 3-line message you create. Your special lines of personalization will be displayed right under the word rainbow that says, “You’re Sweet As Can Be.”
Once your cupcakes have cooled from the oven, you’ll slide the ends of the personalized wrapper together easily with the tab and then place the cupcakes inside for decorating that is just as easy as it is beautiful! The festive wrappers come in sets of 24 and are sold for just $19.95 per set. Bring a batch into work and impress your coworkers with your baking and one-of-a-kind presentation skills!
If you’re looking for a more colorful Valentine’s Day presentation, the Candy Hearts© Personalized Cupcake Wrappers are right up your alley! This cute design, which features any 1-line of personalization under a “Happy Valentine’s Day” message, comes in 6 different colors! This colorful theme is also sold in a set of 24 wrappers for just $19.95.
The additional color options make these wrappers perfect for decorating cupcakes to bring in to your child’s classroom party.
Personalize the wrappers with their teacher’s name, such as “Miss Johnson’s 5th Grade Valentine’s Day Party” and watch as your son or daughter’s classmates smile and gasp when they find the hidden heart inside your tasty Valentine’s Day treats! When you bring them into the class party you’ll earn some “Cool Mom” bonus points and create a fun and memorable moment that they will remember forever!
