Shopping for Mother's Day at Personalization Mall

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

I am perusing PersonalizationMall.com today for one reason, and one reason only: My Mother!

I'm seeing so many mentions of Mother's Day, and to tell you the truth, I kind of blew them off thinking, "Eh, Mother's Day isn't that close to worry about it." Then I looked at my calendar. Yikes! Mother's Day is May 10th this year, and that's just 16 days away!!

So is there time still to get her something that is personalized? Yes! Personalized Mall prides themselves on a fast turnaround time, but it is the busy season, so you do need to hurry!

As for me, there are three items from their ten Mother's Day Gift Guides that I have narrowed my search down to, and I may end up getting two instead of one, just because I know each of these is something she will love.

Picture Perfect Personalized Scented Glass Candle
from the 'Stay at Home Moms' Mother's Day Gift Guide

Within the Mother's Day Gift Guides on the website, I found these great Picture Perfect Personalized Scented Glass Candles under the 'Stay at Home Moms' Mother's Day Gift Guide. My mom has one child (me!) lol, four grandchildren, and one great grandchild. So now my big consideration if I get the candle(s) is...do I get her one candle with her grandkids and one with her great grandbaby; or do I get her four candles, one for each grandchild, or do I just go with simple and put a group picture on one? Decisions...decisions.

The candles come in three fragrances, Lavender and Linen (this is the one I will select if I go with the candle(s) because my mom loves purple), Papaya and Bamboo, and Mulberry. The candles are a generous size, 4" x 4" x 4" and creating them is easy. You simply upload the photo you want displayed on the candle, along with up to two lines of personalization, and Personalization Mall will do the rest. These candles also come with a color-coordinated ribbon tied ever so pretty on top, so you don't even have to wrap them (though you can, of course, if your mom likes wrapped items). :)

Leaves of Love Personalized Sweatshirt Blanket
from the 'Stay at Home Mom' Mother's Day Gift Guide

The second item I am contemplating is from the 'Stay at Home Mom' Mother's Day Gift Guide section of the Mother's Day Guide, and it is the Leaves of Love Personalized Sweatshirt Blanket. I deliberately selected the sweatshirt material because my grandma delved into using this kind of material in the last few years of her life. I think she did so because she'd already used every other kind of material known to mankind to create. ;) It was a big deal to her to be using something new, and we poked fun at her a bit, mildly and with love of course... but let me tell you, those blankets were the one thing everyone wanted when she passed. They embodied her love of sewing, and because that meant the world to her, the blankets mean a lot to us.

I know this blanket would resurface those happy memories for my mom, without even a twinge of sadness. My grandma gave her all to every single one of us in the family, always, and the only feelings we have when we think of her are happy. You can put up to 8 names on this 50" x 60" blanket, and it's the perfect weight for this time of year, being not too heavy, but still heavy enough to ward off any afternoon chill that might come to visit. I don't know if I would put our family names in those hearts, or words that I think describe my mother, such as 'strong' 'accepting,' and 'kind.' I'm still thinking...

'Your Special Dish' Personalized Serving Bowl

The third item I am considering is the 'Your Special Dish' Personalized Serving Bowl. If you like this, check out the 'The Super Cook' Mother's Day Gift Guide where you'll find other great items for mom's kitchen! We don't get to see my mom a whole awful lot because we live in the next state over. You'd think with us just being 4 hours or so apart that we would be able to get together more, but life (school, music, scouts, swimming, soccer, etc.) take up so much time that our visits are not as often as we would like. That means when we do go to see her, she likes to really do up the cooking. She delights in making us dishes she knows we'll enjoy, and she takes pride in how they are presented on the table. I know she'd love this bright, cheery bowl, and having a special message or her name on it, would make it that much better.

The bowl is 5" x 10.5", holds five quarts, and is made of durable ceramic that can safely go in the dishwasher. You can personalize it up to 2 lines, and it comes in 10 different design themes.

Of course these three items are just a small sampling from a vast selection of inventory that you will find while looking around the website. Check out more selections on the Mother's Day Store Page. If you're like me, and you haven't done your shopping done yet, Pesonalization Mall is the place to be. You can follow them on Facebook, Pinterest and/or Twitter as well.

All done with your shopping? Or do you still have to get yours done?

The perfect spot to find a gift

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

To keep it real, Rosey, I hate Mother's Day, because I lost my mom to the horrid C years ago. But I'm thinking about those candles. They could also serve as really nice remembrance candles. In the Jewish faith, we light a candle on the anniversary of our loved one's death. I like the idea of a photo on the candle holder. It's really nice.

Happy weekend.

Chrystal Mahan said...

That blanket is super cute. My mom is a minimalist but she does like her blankets.

Amber said...

What an awesome idea! I want to make my mom a blanket but might be a late mothers day present till baby girl is born so she can be on it too! :-)

It's true about how quickly Mother's Day will come.

I would love to get my mom something unique too.
