New Ornaments…and a little giveaway!

The kiddos are back in school, leaves are falling, there’s a bit of a chill in the air, and wrapping paper is slowly starting to work it’s way to the forefront of your favorite store…it can only mean one thing.  Our favorite season-Christmas Ornament season- is on it’s way!!

The official countdown is 62 days until Christmas!  I know, you thought you had plenty of time left to shop and decorate until I had to go bursting your bubble.  Not to worry, though-I would never bring you crashing down to reality unless I had a plan to help you get ready for the Holiday season!

Personalized Ornaments are not only the best way to decorate your tree, they are the perfect gift for anyone!  I know my list is full of people who are impossible to shop for-what do you get for the person who already has everything?  You get them a unique personalized Christmas ornament, that shows them how much thought you put into their gift.  We have added many new ornaments to our inventory of over 1300!  A few of my favorites this season include:

The Festive Family in Sock ornament that is pictured above-with room for 6 family members, this is sure to be a favorite with our customers who have larger families.  I adore the detail at the top of the stocking, and love the happy Charlie Brown-esque faces!  Available for $15.95, and as always, personalized free with the wording of your choice.

The Engaged Couple With Big Heart Ornament-have a happy couple in your midst, possibly awaiting a summer wedding?  Show them how excited you are for their upcoming nuptials by gifting them this little cutie.  Also great for a new couple decorating their first tree, or to announce your big news to family!  Available for only $11.95.

Baby Girl Wreath with Duck– I am very excited about this “new addition” to our ornament inventory, as it is perfect for the new addition to your family!  This wreath has room for all the important baby stats, as well as a little glitter to add just the right amount of sparkle to your tree.  This is perfect as a baby’s 1st ornament for your own new baby, or a gift any new mother would be thrilled to receive.  Available for $12.95.

Text Phone Ornament-I know everyone has a special someone in their life who is either a “Crackberry” or texting addict!  This ornament is a great way to remember that phase in your child’s life, or to affectionately poke fun of their technophile ways.  Available for $11.95.

I could go on all day, but it might just be better for you to head on over to PersonalizedFree.com and check out our huge inventory!  And keep in mind that we always offer free, fast shipping on all orders over $60.  To sweeten the deal, we are even offering readers of this post a special sale-enter the promo code “FALL” at checkout to receive an extra 10% off your entire order!  Promo code good until 11/6/2010, so make sure to take advantage!

Now, I promised you I wouldn’t scare you with the Christmas Countdown unless I had a plan to get you on your way to true Holiday Season Preparation.  We want to help jumpstart either your Christmas decoration or shopping by giving you a chance to win one ornament of your choice, personalized however you wish, shipped to you for free!!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

And unfortunately, the odds probably are that you know someone who has been directly effected by Breast Cancer.  According to the American Cancer Society via the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month website, Breast Cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in women other than skin cancer, with almost 200,000 cases expected to be diagnosed this year alone.
Noble organizations such as The Susan G. Komen Foundation are working tirelessly to fight the monster known as Breast Cancer, with the end goal of finding a cure.

We here at PersonalizedFree.com would like to do a little part to help.  We are offering a Pink Ribbon Ornament this year.  This is the perfect way to honor someone who is battling or has lost the fight against Breast Cancer, or someone who participated in the SGK 3-Day Race for the Cure.
In addition, we will be donating $5 for every ornament purchased in the month of October directly to the Susan G. Komen Foundation to help win the fight against breast cancer. Personalized Christmas Ornaments for a cause-what a win for everyone!
