Last-Minute Summer Bucket List Ideas

Looking for a few ideas on how you can spend your last precious hours of summer? Need to check a few things off your summer bucket list before the leaves start to change color? We love making the most out of our summer season and it sounds like you do too! So we at Customized Girl have come up with a few ideas on how you can get the most out of your remaining summer weeks before the air gets chilly! Read below to see a few of our last-minute summer bucket list ideas.

1. Last Minute Trip To The Pool

Now’s your chance to go to the pool or beach if you haven’t had the chance this summer! If you’re reading this in mid to late August, chances are that all the kids have finally gone back to school, which means that all your local pools should be pretty empty for the most part. Indulge in a little time by the water now before it’s too cool to wear that bikini.

2. Check Out Your Local Amusement Parks

You’ll notice a theme with this blog, that being that all the kids are back in classes leaving all the fun stuff for us adults to enjoy! If you haven’t had a chance to hop on a roller coaster or eat some greasy food, now would be a great time to check out your local theme and amusement parks. This late in the season we would imagine lines are going to be pretty short for all the best rides. You may even be lucky enough to get some discounted pricing on tickets!

3. Take A Quick Trip

This late in the summer season it may not be feasible to take a whole week off for vacation, but why not take a Friday and Monday off and give yourself a nice 4-day vacation? Plan a trip somewhere nearby that you can easily drive to and explore some of the lesser-known features of your state or neighboring states. Most people will have already gotten their travel out of their system leaving all the best sights for you to enjoy without the big crowds!

4. Have That Last Cookout Of The Summer

Not that you can’t cook out in the fall too, it may even be preferable with the cooler weather, but you might as well have a few more ‘summer’ cookouts while it still counts! Grab the burgers, corn, and watermelon and your red checkered table cloth for your last round of summer cookouts before we start throwing pumpkins on the grill!

5. Set Off The Last Of Your Fireworks

This one is really just a house cleaning suggestion, but no one wants to hear fireworks after September 1st. So, pull the rest of your bottle rockets and roman candles out of that trunk you keep them in, and set them off while it’s still seasonally appropriate. We won’t be mad if it’s done before we get our first pumpkin spice latte.

6. Attend A Summer Sporting Event

Football season will be here in no time and that is sure to take up all of our attention. So, while summer is still here, make sure to go to any sports games you’ve missed out on. Go to a local baseball game and have yourself a hotdog, or hit up the golf course while the weather is still nice enough to be on the green. If you’re a big tennis fan, now’s the time to check out a game! Regardless, we’re still pumped for the football games to start up!

7. Buy Custom Sweatshirts For Your Fall Wardrobe

You don’t want to be stuck out in the cold in your t-shirts and tank tops having to wait for some nice comfy and warm apparel to arrive at your house. Why not spend some time now customizing some comfy sweatshirts or soft stylish hoodies on Customized Girl? That way, you’ll already be bundled up when the cooler weather finally hits!

Custom Christmas Pajamas For The Whole Family

The holiday season is always a time to come together with friends and family to share our love for one another that maybe we haven’t been able to show the rest of the year. Whether you’re giving gifts or making the family a delicious dinner, togetherness is ultimately the feeling of the season.

2020 has been unlike anything we’ve lived through before and I think it’s safe to say that that feeling of togetherness is even more important than it’s ever been before. When it’s cold outside and there’s a global pandemic still keeping us apart, we can still feel the spirit of the holiday together at home.

What better way to spend that time at home together than by getting the whole family some matching sets of pajamas. You’ll have plenty of time to lay around in your super comfy family-themed PJ’s, so here are our selections for the top 6 family PJ designs.

How We Print Our Custom Socks

Here’s the number one thing you need to know:

We print on the outside of BOTH socks.

In the design center, you’re creating one design. It looks like one design. But you are getting TWO prints.

One pair of socks. Two prints. It’s good.

Okay, let me back up: yes, we sell Custom Socks.

And even no-show socks that we print on the bottom! These socks are perfect for putting your feet up on a stool and telling the world something like…

If you can read this, don’t bother me I am watching Hallmark Channel movies.

(Just as an example and also something I feel on a weekly basis deep in my bones.)

The point is, you can say, literally, whatever you want. Add text. Add art from our library. Even upload an image.

However, we recommend big, bold designs that are easy to read. Use the Add Text tab and choose one of our nice, big fonts.

Socks are ribbed and kinda stretchy. They are super great for spreading your message but not super great for showing off intricate detail in your artwork.

Keep that in mind, and you’re sure to create something unique and unforgettable.

How to Shop for Custom Bags & Backpacks: Tips for Dance Moms, Cheer Moms, and More

Custom Dance Bags

To be completely clear, we sell Custom Bags here at Customized Girl. This post will not be without a strong pro-Customized-Girl bias.

But that also makes us the experts, right? Who better to offer advice?

Of course, most of this advice will involve “buy it from Customized Girl!” We just love being transparent.

TIP #1: Nfinity is the brand.

One brand seems to stand the tallest in the minds of cheerleaders today, and that is Nfinity. Yes, we sell custom nfinity bags.

Why is it so popular? Well, it’s a really nice backpack. It’s huge. It has tons of compartments. The front section is detachable (suddenly it’s a purse!).

It all started with cheerleaders, but this brand has spread to other groups too: dancers, gymnasts, and anyone else looking for a fine backpack.

There are two main types of Nfinity bags:

First is the classic Black backpack. It will cost around $100. It’s great.

Second is the Sparkle backpack. It costs significantly more, around $120.

Nfinity Sparkle Backpack

But despite the higher price point, it’s actually more popular. There are several reasons for this. If you’re willing to drop $100+ on a sporty backpack, might as well push for something extra special, right? Another reason: it’s so sparkly. Extreme sparkles.

It’s also popular because it’s hard to get! Our supply of the main Black Backpack is somewhat consistent, but the Sparkle Bag sells out regularly.

To summarize the first tip: if you’re trying to make a custom Nfinity Backpack, and we have them in stock, then don’t wait! Especially if you want to get the sparkle bag. Jump on that as soon as you can.

TIP #2: Make it one-of-a-kind with customization.

You can get a duffel bag just about anywhere and call it a “dance bag”.

If you’re looking for something special, customize it with any text you want. Add your dancer’s name, initials, or even an inside joke. Do you have a special nickname that she loves? Want to her remind her of that one time you guys laughed and laughed?

At Customized Girl, you can make a custom dance bag, and it can say literally whatever you want.

Lot’s of places offer custom bags, right? Well, kind of. They offer a limited selection of personalization options, yes. But they can’t print ink on the vinyl-like material that makes up most duffel bags and backpacks.

They could screenprint, but then you have to buy like 36 of them.

They could embroider, but then you’d have a limited number of options and fonts. And embroidery gets expensive. There’s lots of set-up.

We do something different with our decoration. We use an ultra-thin, precision-cut film or foil material that is then heat pressed onto your bag. It’s great for custom bags that are meant to last forever, especially if you are buying just one. (We call this “no minimums” in the biz.)

This means also means we can offer a huge variety of font options and a huge variety of art options. Just hit that Add Art tab design in our design center and you’ll have access to our enormous library of art.

TIP #3: Price can vary widely.

One more thing that we like to brag about: all the prices on our site include customization.

Those $100 Nfinity backpacks I mentioned earlier? You can find them elsewhere for $100, but at Customized Girl, you can get them for $100 with personalization.

If $100 feels steep, don’t worry, we offer a large range of prices. Make tote bags for under $15. Make custom duffels for under $30.

Custom Boxers & Personalized Boxer Briefs

National Underwear day is August 5th!

Yes, we do offer a wide range of custom underwear for both Men and Women. But if we’re being honest, we do spend more of our time of focused on how to serve the ladies. We are Customized Girl, after all.

Let’s take a moment to focus on the fellas. You can now get custom boxer briefs and personalized boxers here.

What’s the difference? Boxers are roomy. Boxer Briefs are a little more snug. They are tighter, but not quite like tighty-whities.

But there are also differences between these specific two items and how we print them.

Hanes Boxer Briefs

We offer two colors right now: Black and Heather Gray.

Your print on the Black boxer briefs will use an underlay of white ink. Your design will really pop.

Your print on the Heather Gray boxer briefs will have more of a vintage vibe. The colors will blend a bit with the color of the fabric:

It’s important to know that these boxer briefs are ribbed and stretchy. That makes them super comfortable, but it also impacts the print.

You can imagine how this would look with a white design on a pair of black, ribbed boxer briefs. As you stretch the fabric, you might see some of the ribbing between the ink.

However, it still looks great even with the ribbing. For hilarious, novelty underwear, it definitely gets the job done.

Unisex Boxercraft Cotton Boxer Shorts

Our boxer shorts only come in white. Just like our briefs, you can get anything printed across the rear end or on the front left leg.

Even though it’s 100% cotton, the fabric is a little stiffer on the boxers compared to the boxer briefs. It’s a sturdier construction, but it’s not quite as soft and stretchy, because it is not ribbed.

Why Customize Underwear At All?

Some might ask, what would you need custom underwear for? We can easily respond back – Everything. Special events like birthdays or anniversary’s are perfect examples where custom underwear can spice things up. Better yet, customize underwear as gag gift for a buddy because laughter in the best gift of all. Another classic example is customizing matching groomsmen underwear for your big day. Now that’s a memory you won’t forget.

But we have a second confession to make: we wrote this article for the guys but, again, it’s really for the ladies.

The vast majority of our boxer and boxer brief orders are going to women who are buying them as hilarious gifts for their boyfriends and husbands.

Some of Customized Girl’s most popular underwear designs for men include “property of,” “hers,” and “was here.” The best part about our custom underwear is you can choose from one of our templates or start with a blank item. Make an idea or concept come to life. Our design center is loaded with custom art, fonts, and printing options that you will not find anywhere else. Customization allows each and every user to create a one-of-a-kind design.

Need help? Here’s step by step instructions to guide you through our design center or contact our awesome customer service team. They would be more than happy to assist with the entire process from designing to ordering.
