Disclosure: This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Personalization Mall. All opinions are 100% my own.
The hardest person in my family to shop for is probably me. As the mama I don’t make picking out gifts for me an easy task. To start with I always say I don’t want anything. I truly feel like I have everything I need, my family. Now that J-bird is old enough to shop for and buy gifts for me, he feels like he HAS to buy me something. I try to explain to him the only gift I need from him is good grades and a great attitude. But he insists.
So I try to go easy on him by dropping hints to things I might accept as a gift for the holidays. I like to pin things to my Pinterest boards, leave random notes around the house, open a magazine to a certain page or even text him links to websites. The hunt is still on for him because I still keep it general enough that he has to figure out exactly what I want on that page.
For example, I will send him a link to a gift guide I have come across one like the Gifts For Mom from Personalization Mall. As you can see it has 3 items. Now J-bird has to use his best judgment, and what he has knows about my likes and dislikes to pinpoint which item on that guide I want.
It’s a fun little game. Sometimes I’ll leave extra clues lying around. On the Gifts For Mom from Personalization Mall I actually really would love to have the Her Heart of Love Personalized Sweatshirt Blanket. It is something I could definitely use and do need. I say I need the Sweatshirt Blanket for two reasons, Papa keeps it really cold in the house and everyone has a blanket throw on the couch except me.
Could this gift really not be any more perfect for me? With a choice of up to any 8 names, he could even have Poochi’s name added! The heart design is the perfect way to display the names of the ones I love. Its super soft and comfortable and made with my favorite jersey fleece material! The blanket is a very generous 50″ x 60″, the perfect size for me to cuddle with the girls during a movie night.
The other gifts listed on the guide are a beautiful vintage jewelry box and a bamboo cutting board. He couldn’t go wrong picking any of these items as I would love them all equally. I think it would be a hoot to have a personalized cutting board considering all the time I spend cooking in the kitchen! And you can never go wrong with a beautifully inscribed jewelry box. It would be a great place to keep all the cute costume jewelry he has bought me over the years when he was younger and shopping with my money!
I try to make gift giving fun. Letting him feel like he put in effort to pick out the perfect gift boosts his self-esteem. Although truth be told he can bring me a plastic cup and write mama on it, just like in his younger years, and I would treasure the gift just as much because it came from him.
Personalization Mall allows you to create unique gifts for your loved ones. Personalized gifts make a last impression letting the receiver know that you really put extra thought into the selection of their gift. Who would you like to give a personalized gift to?
Personalization Mall wants to have a little fun with its customers too, just like me. They will be hosting a special 12 Days of Christmas Riddles Contest on Facebook from Dec 1st through Dec 12th. Personalization Mall will provide a riddle that when solved, leads people to a specific personalized gift on their site. Once you solve the riddle and find the correct page, you will find a small graphic overlay like an ornament that features a letter with a specific color ornament for the day. It just so happens that the Sweater Blanket I want is the answer to the riddle for Day 4, but don’t tell anyone I told you that. So make sure to go check out the sweater blanket, and then head over and enter the 12 Days of Christmas Contest by visiting the Personalization Mall Facebook page!
