AWESOME Customized Gifts from Personalization Mall

Wednesday, May 13, 2009

Twice a year - Mother's Day and Christmas - I struggle to find my mother the perfect gifts. After all, what can you get for the woman who has everything?

Not too long ago though I stumbled - purely by accident in a last minute rush - into something my mother loves....anything that is or appears to be homemade and relates to her grandchildren. (Maybe I should be a little jealous that she doesn't find my handmade stuff so adorable anymore; but, hey, I'm just happy to find a gift she likes so I'll let it slide!)

Getting back on topic....I now make it a habit to find her gifts that she such as this. And I was thrilled to come across - a never ending supply of affordable, personalized gifts!

This year for Mother's Day I chose to purchase the Greatest Grandma © Keepsake Platter ($29.95) and had it customized with my children's names; in addition, I was provided with a variety of "characters" to represent the names. (While there was room for up to 6 names, I only put my four children - remember, with my mother anyone whose relation to her does not start with "grand" has lost their cute factor.)

She loved it!! She giggled like a school girl whose best friend had just told her the name of a boy she liked. Which was then immediately followed by a long, rambling discussion of where she was going to put it in her house.

I love it when I can find something that she enjoys so much!

And since my father is just as hard, if not harder to shop for, I very much intend to return to Personalization Mall for a Father's Day gift.

Here's another great thing: if you're a last minute shopper such as myself, then you're still in luck. Most items, even customized items, ship within 1 to 2 business days. I ordered on Monday before Mother's Day and had it on Friday. And I didn't even pay for rush shipping!

I will be visiting Personalization Mall frequently for most of my gift shopping and I encourage you to give them a try too!
