12/01/2017 - Five Awesome Hostess Gift Ideas They Will Love
If you’ve ever played “hostess with the mostess”, then you know how much work hosting a party can be. With the holiday season now in full swing, you are likely headed to one (or more!) holiday parties, and bringing a hostess gift can be a great way to show your gratitude to a hard working hostess. If you want to make a splash with your gift, here are some awesome hostess gift ideas.

Win Them With Wine

Nothing says “‘Tis The Season” like giving the gift of a festive bottle of wine, a fancy liqueur or even a bottle of the hard stuff (assuming you know that the recipient partakes). If you want to give your wine gift a little more oomph, create a wine or liqueur-themed gift basket complete with delectable dark chocolates, gourmet crackers and high-quality cheese. Want to make it a bit more personal? Personalize a beautiful ornament for the hostess’ family and use the ornament as a wine bottle charm or as the decoration on top of the gift basket. 

Give Her A Personalized OrnamentFireplace mantle Christmas ornament with six red and white stockings with names hanging from it.

The gift of a personalized ornament is a great hostess gift idea for so many reasons. For starters, at less than $20 each, it’s a gift that won’t break the bank during an often expensive season. It’s a gift that will fit inside of your purse, and the fact that you took the time to personalize it for her will let your hostess know that you are thinking of her. Best of all, you can select from ornaments that include hobby, the number of people in her family, her occupation, and so much more.

Say It With Flowers

No doubt about it, people love getting flowers and there are some gorgeous winter flowers that would make a pretty bouquet in a vase. Even a beautiful plant like the poinsettia can symbolize the season and offers your hostess another decoration to add to her probably already beautifully decorated home. Does your hostess have a hobby, like gardening, for example? Add an ornament with her name on it that features her favorite hobby.

Desserts With A Personal Touch

Just about everyone has a sweet tooth, and a tray of homemade fudge or delicious homemade cookies will be a treat worth savoring. Your hostess can set it aside for herself or share it with her guests. Offering sweet yummy treats on a cute cake platter or holiday serving dish gives her the double gift of both the sweets and a lovely dish that she can reuse again in the future.

Love In A Basket

Similar to our wine gift basket idea above, creating a themed gift basket for your hostess will be something she’ll remember for a long time. Whether she’s a lover of chocolate, a lover of bath products, or a lover of pets, the sky’s the limit in terms of how you can create an amazing gift basket. Personal ornaments make a great addition or basket-topper as part of your gift.

10/23/2017 - How To Celebrate School Milestones Like A Champ
Whekindergarden-yellow-school-bus-snowmenther you want to celebrate the first time your kindergartener writes their name legibly or your high school senior graduating summa cum laude, school milestones are events worth cherishing forever. Not only do you want your wonderful kiddos to know how proud you are of them, you want to remember these touching moments yourself for years to come. So, in honor of those school moments that make Momma proud, here are some ways to celebrate school milestones like a champ.

Make A Memorable Meal

Nothing says celebration more than a delicious home-cooked meal complete with friends and family. Does your little one love pancakes? Make a huge breakfast with pancake, eggs, and bacon for dinner and invite Grandma and Grandpa to join in. Have an older student that you want to honor? Throw an outdoor party complete with loud music and grilled gourmet burgers. With a little creativity and some delicious food, your student will love to be the center of attention and enjoy a little fanfare for a job well done. A cake and decorations can seal the deal too!

Give Them An Ornament

A thoughtfully crafted and personalized school ornament is something that your kids will love and will keep with them throughout their school years, into college, and when they grow up and have kids of their own. Every year, they will look at that ornament and think back fondly to their proudest moments. Don’t think your kids will go for one? Then order a school ornament with your child’s name for yourself and cherish the memory of their school success every time you look at it. There is a good chance that they will want to get their hands on that ornament once they are sentimental adults unwrapping all of their most beloved holiday ornaments!

Have A Kids Choice Night

Boy College Graduation BLACK Robe Personalized Ornaments BLONDE HairA super fun way to spend a Saturday night and celebrate your kids is to reward them with a kids choice night. Kids choice means that the kiddos get to pick the restaurant and the activities. Whether it’s a night at the bowling alley, a roller skating rink, or fun at a putt-putt golf place, your kids will love that they get to control the activity and you might be surprised at how carefree you feel enjoying special activities that your kids adore.

Tell It With Photos

Kids of all ages love to see themselves in pictures. Whether looking studious and serious or silly and fun, gazing at a collection of photos of themselves with family and friends is sure to make them smile. Make your student a cool photo collage, photo album or photo book that they can share with their friends and teachers and that they will love to look at for years to come. A photo ornament is another way to memorialize a moment in time.

Go For The Green

Probably one of the most popular graduation presents in existence, cash is something that students love to get. It’s motivating and can be the ultimate reward for kids who want to use it to buy something special. Gift cards can also be a great way to celebrate a school milestone, but the most industrious students might be motivated enough to save cash for something big.

High School GIRL Christmas Wreath Ornament BLONDE

With some thoughtfulness and creativity, you can celebrate your child’s school milestones like a true champ. Always remember that what counts most for kids is your praise and love, so give them plenty of that, but a little extra reward never hurt anyone! Personalized Ornaments For You carries a beautiful selection of school ornaments including ornaments for Elementary School and beyond, graduation from preschool or high school, teachers gifts and much more.

08/03/2017 - It's A....? Six Gender Reveal Party Ideas You Will Love

When it comes to announcing a new baby to the world, gender reveal parties are all the rage these days. It’s exciting when a couple finds out whether they’re having a boy or a girl, and announcing the gender during a party can be a fun and memorable way to share that prized moment with people you love the most. If you’re planning to have a gender reveal party, ask your doctor to write the baby’s gender down and put it in a sealed envelope and then give it to a trusted friend who will help with party planning. Whether you’ll be hoping for a little blue or a little pink, we’ve got gender reveal party ideas that you will love!

  1. Let them eat cake. The truly sweet moment of the big reveal will be made all the sweeter when you hear this idea. Have your trusted friend bake or order a delicious cake for your party. When it’s time, Mom and Dad-to-be can slice into that sweet cake and find out what they are having based on the color of the cake---pink or blue. A fun way to learn more about your new little slice of heaven! Want to do something extra special? Add a gender reveal ornament to the top of the cake (hidden of course) which will double as a keepsake for the parents.

  2. Use an ornament. Want a fun, inexpensive, and super easy way to announce the gender at your party? Use an ornament! Have your party organizer wrap two packages---one with a boy ornament and one with a girl ornament inside---and have Mommy and Daddy open the correct package. Every time they look at their ornament, they will remember that unforgettable moment!

  3. Cast your vote. Want to get points for a little audience participation at your party? Create cute voting cards that include a pink onesie on one side and a blue one on the other. Have your guests cast their votes and put them in the ballot box. Find out who’s right at the end of your party when you tally the ballots, open the doctor’s envelope, and announce it to your guests. Want to give your guests a keepsake of your special party? These adorable gender reveal ornaments would make perfect party favors.

  4. Take a swing. A super fun way to get the crowd involved is to include a pinata at your party. Get a baby-themed pinata like a teddy bear or baby doll and stuff it with candy and goodies for the guests. You can also include a slip of paper that contains the gender of the baby. Whoever took the winning “swing” to get the slip of paper out of the pinata gets to announce it to your guests and win a special prize!

  5. Pop the balloons. This fun idea involves some construction paper, food coloring, and some blown up balloons. Tape a bunch of white construction paper to a large area outside (like a backyard fence) and have your party planning friends fill the balloons with either blue or pink food coloring. Blow up the balloons, tape them to the construction paper, and have the parents throw darts to pop the balloons. As the color appears, everyone will know if it’s a boy or a girl.

  6. Just get silly. Another super simple and fun way to announce baby’s gender is to use an old party standby---silly string. Have the party planner purchase cans of blue or pink silly string for guests. Wait until an opportune moment and blast the expecting parents with blue or pink silly string. It’s guaranteed to get laughs and makes for great photo opps.

With a little creativity and excitement, your gender reveal party can be unforgettable! Explore our gender reveal ornaments for your party.
