#HallmarkPressPause - Time for Celebration & A Giveaway!


For as long as I can remember, Hallmark has been the place we've always gone to for cards for all those special occasions.  Hallmark always has the perfect words and the perfect cards for every holiday, milestone or event.  They not only have the perfect cards, but also special gifts for all occasions.

I remember even as a kid, I'd pick out a special Hallmark card for Mother's Day and Father's Day. While I was at the Hallmark store, I'd also pick up a Mother's Day gift for Mom that had a really sweet quote on it. Mom loves sentimental gifts.  I used to get Dad a "Best Dad" or "Father's Day" picture frame.  Can you imagine how many picture frames my parents have in their house?

As a member of the #HallmarkPressPause Panel, I was given a selection of Hallmark products.

One of the items that caught my interest right away was the Stationary Tower.
The Stationary Tower is a great gift for Mother's Day.  It comes with a decorative pen and is beautifully packaged for easy to give gifts.  They're not only fabulous for Mother's Day gifts, but also for other occasions...like just showing appreciation.  They make great teacher appreciation gifts too!
MSRP: $12.95

I tried to open my Hallmark package when Little One wasn't in the room, but she ended up finding the items anyway.  She immediately ran for the Interactive Storybook & Story Buddy.

Nugget - Interactive Storybook & Story Buddy is an adorable stuffed animal that responds to a variety of phrases in the book.  I was hoping to give Nugget to Little One for Easter.  Let's hope that she forgets that she saw him! He is so cute and cuddly. A guaranteed hit with any child!
MSRP: $29.99

Spring is also the time when everything comes to life.  How perfect is Bloomin' Expressions?!
Bloomin' Expressions will put a smile on that special loved one's face.  Express yourself by sharing  the happy, joyful feeling that comes with seeing a sunny yellow flower. When you press the button, the petals open to reveal the perfect words.  There are four designs available.
$19.95

Another item my 3 year old loves is the Squawkin' Egg Droppin' Hen!  I thought she'd be afraid of it, as she doesn't seem to like the element of surprise with some dancing and singing decorative holiday items.  This time, she was enthralled! She kept making that hen sing and lay eggs! Very amusing.
Squawkin' Egg Droppin' Hen coordinates with The Egg-cellent Mama Hen book. The singing, egg dropping hen is a cute addition for Spring and Easter!
MSRP: $30.95 ($15.95 with the purchase of 3 cards)

Gear Shaped Frames are ideal for getting Dad's motor running! They're fun to stack and move on a desk or bookcase.  They're great "manly men" gifts! I immediately thought these would be great for Little One to give to her Daddy for Father's Day, as they remind her of the gears she sees on the farm all the time. Our three year old immediately said, "Oh! GEARS!!! Like in Daddy's farm equipment!"
MSRP: $7.95 each (Limited Time Offer: Buy 1 card, get 2 Gear Shaped Frames for $12.00. Buy 2 cards and get 3 Gear Shaped Frames for $15.00)

Of course, we can't forget Hallmark cards, gift bags, and other stationary items!

Thank you to Hallmark for the wonderful items and for reminding us to take the time to pause and appreciate the everyday moments.

I think I would like to give this prize to my son and his family. They live a long ways away and we don't get to see them more than 1 or 2 times a year. This would be a great remembrance.
